I want to create a commercial listing in Agent Admin
Great! Let's show you how to create a new listing in Commercial Real Estate Agent Admin.
There are many components which are based off the ‘date created’ date which cannot be altered.
These components include:
• Listing ‘new’ tags,
• Property alert’ programming
• Expiry date
• Listing and agency reporting stats
• Any auto-upgrade settings
Agent Admin may stall or time out if you take more than 20 minutes to complete your listing. If you find that you are unable to complete the whole listing within 20 minutes, you may wish to complete steps 1 - 3 and ‘save to pending’, then complete the listing and send live, however this must be done on the same day.
Before creating a new listing, make sure any agents to be assigned to the listing are already loaded into the Agent List. Click Here for more info on how to create/add new agent.
Once a listing has been created as a ‘Sale’, ‘Lease’ or ‘Commercial Sale or Lease’ it cannot change to another category. This is especially significant for ‘Commercial Sale or Lease’ which for example may be sold but is still for lease. You would not then be able to change the listing to Lease only.
If a listing is for auction, by default the price will not display on site. It will be replaced by the text ‘Commercial Auction’ regardless of what has been entered as the price or price display text.
Lease listings only need to enter the PCW price and agent admin will calculate the annual price and display this in the listing.
Create a Commercial listing in Agent Admin

Select Single Property or Multiple Units
To create a listing the following details are compulsory and must be entered:

You will not be able to create a listing unless these fields are complete.
Select a sale type and property types from the drop-down menu.
You can select up to 3 secondary property types.
Your reference will be automatically generated when the listing is created.
Next, enter property address details.
Make sure the apartment number, street number and street name are all entered into the correct fields, or the map location on the listing will be incorrect.
Start typing suburb name, then choose from the list. Suburb will validate and the State and Postcode will automatically populate.
Select whether you would like to display full address, street and suburb only, or from the other options. This will also affect the map location appearance on the listing.

Land Area Unit: Is the listings whole land area measured in square meters, acres, or squares, etc?
Building Area Unit: Is the listings internal building area measured in square meters, acres, or squares, etc?

Enter the price or price range
Enter Price As: Is the listing advertised as a total amount or per sqm?
GST: Does the price listed include GST?
Setting the 'Price Display'
Display price in the listing - Choose this option if you simply want to display the actual price or price range, which was entered in the ‘Search Price’ field.
Display text in the listing - Choose this option if you want to display something other than the price eg: “Offers Invited” “Price on Application”. If you enter a numeric value in this field, the numeric value will be displayed and will appear in search results according to this value.
Price preview - Shows what is going to be displayed on the listing. If the listing type is Auction, the text Commercial Auction will appear by default.
Do not copy/paste directly from a word doc or another webpage as this will copy invisible html code which will not be accepted by our page.
You must copy/paste onto Wordpad (windows), TextEdit (mac) or any other ‘text only’ word editor. Or when pasting, right-click > ‘paste as plain text’
Headline - The headline that will appear on property details page, and search results (platinum) 80 characters max.
Description - The copy that will appear on property details page. 3000 characters max.
Phone numbers, website links and email addresses are not permitted in the headline or description. Entering any of these in the description is a breach of our terms and conditions.

A video tour is a video of the property.
