How it Works:
The base HomeList package provides a PERMALINK page on HomeList Canada, connected at no additional cost to corresponding regional and local real estate directories that are part of our national network.
For example, a national listing for a Nanaimo, BC property would also appear on Central Island Homes, HomeList BC, Islands BC and Travel Nanaimo!
At minimum, a Homelist participant could simply email us a PDF brochure that they produce themselves. However, we recommend that users supply data, images, video links, copy and a rough design concept, which we will assemble into a consistent presentation package with interactive menu-driven features. A standard version of this process is just $75.
For private vendors, using an independent real estate digital media specialist is also recommended. Please check our "Resources" page for local options and general suggestions. A professional firm covering a diverse range of services (photography - including local lifestyle content - basic aerial/video, floorplans, print/online media templates and Smartlink mapping) may charge as little as $300 for a medium-sized property, up to $500 with an advanced 3D virtual tour. This expense is but a tiny fraction of the final selling price of the property, so it is a smart investment overall.
Enhancing presence on any of our sites is very cost-effective, through use of a FEATURE ad upgrade (a small number of featured listings shown prominently in a special section of each regional page) and the very exclusive SHOWCASE VIDEO option (limited to 12 participants for an entire HomeList site!)
HOMELIST CANADA AD ($80/year):
Specialized real estate directory entry placed concurrently on regional, provincial and national sites with a common permalink page (like "HomeListCanada.com/406").
Private and agency property sales are welcome.
HOMELIST FEATURE AD UPGRADE ($60/site/year):
Prominently placed in context just below the corresponding regional page on any of our sites.
The source directory listing is specially colour-coded as well, drawing attention to it.
The gallery image of the FEATURE ad may transform to an external video, or simply expand to its full-size equivalent. It will also be linked to an external site or HomeList PERMALINK page.
SHOWCASE VIDEO ($200/year):
20-second clip as part of a 4-minute feature presentation on the home page of HomeList Canada or HomeList BC. Other sites are available for just $140 per year.
FEATURE ADS or SHOWCASE VIDEOS placed on 2 or more of our sites concurrently receive a 20% discount!
All placement fees are subject to GST.
Development and update costs are additional, with optional in-house design and production services available for just $25/hour (exluding incremental media rights licensing if required).
