Selling a Property

What kind of exposure will my listing get?

Currently our Web site averages over 100,000 hits per month. Unlike many other real estate classified sites, all of our pages are indexable by major search engines. Our Web site is also linked to by many other luxury and specialty real estate Web sites.

Will you represent me in my property sale?

We are not a broker. We provide value to our customers with flat-fee classified-style listings. Many "for sale by owner" property sellers, realtors, and auctioneers use International Listings to promote their properties on the internet.

I'm a realtor or auctioneer. Can I use your site?

Absolutely. This site is perfect for realtors and auctioneers to promote their sales of luxury, specialty and international properties.

Will my listing expire in 30 days?

No. Unlike other property classified sites, we keep your property listed until its sold.

Are there any recurring charges?

No. You pay one time, flat fee to list your property. Many other sites charge by a specific time frame, so while their fees may look cheaper upfront ($89 - $199 for 30 days), International Listings offers better value over the 3-6 month range when most high-end properties are sold.

How many properties do you sell a year?

Since we're not a broker, we can't accurately determine this figure. People who buy property through our site contact the seller directly, so we don't have access to this data.

How can I update my listing(s)?

Simply login and click on "edit listing". After making a change in your listing there will be a delay before it shows up on the main site (updates have to be approved by the International Listings team).

Can I use HTML code in my property description?

We do not allow HTML code in descriptions at the current time. This ensures online security, as well as the uniform look of the site.

Is your online payment system secure?

Absolutely. All credit card transactions are encrypted with 128-bit SSL technology, and we do not store any credit card numbers in our system. Your order is safe with us.

What forms of payment do you accept?

Currently we accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, and PayPal.

What is the best picture format to use for my listing?

We recommend high resolution pictures no larger than 800x600 pixels, at a resolution no lower than 72dpi.

Why isn't my property listed in Google Base / Oodle / other partner Web site?

Certain restrictions apply when we syndicate our listings to partner web sites. Sometimes a listing will not show up on a particular partner site for a few weeks. Also, many partners have geographic limitations on which listings they'll accept (for instance, Zillow and Trulia only support US properties at this time).
