Learn how to create a new listing and publish it to Biproxi
You can create a listing at any time in Biproxi by navigating to the "Listings" tab on the left side navigation and then clicking the "Create Listing" button on the top right hand side of the screen. This will bring you to the Create Listing process which contains several steps that we will outline in this article:
- Basic Information
- Property Details
- Price & Guidance
- Due Diligence
- Data Insights
- Publishing and Scheduling
Basic Information contains several key pieces of info that are required to post a listing to Biproxi.
Begin typing the address of the property you are selling, and we'll attempt to autocomplete it. If the address does not exist in our database, you will need to click the "Enter address manually" button right below the address field.
If you enter an address manually, please use the Precise Location field to mark the exact Longitude and Latitude on a map. This allows the property to be shown exactly where it is located on the listings map. If you do not include a precise location, your listing will not be displayed on the listing map and will be very difficult to discover.
You can optionally give your listing a name such as "The Armory Hotel" to more accurately describe the property. This name will be displayed on the listing page and in the listing search results.
Listing Expiration Date
Add an expiration date to the listing to automatically remove the it from search after the specified date occurs.
Photos can be added by either dragging them onto the screen directly into the Photo Upload box, or by clicking the upload button to search for files on your computer. Once photos are uploaded, they can be re-arranged by dragging them in whatever order you would like. The first photo in order will always act as your default image, and will be marked with a box around it.
Beautiful photos are vital for any listing on Biproxi to get noticed by buyers. We recommend having at least 5 professional photos on your listings.
Video tour are another helpful way for buyers to get a better feel for your property. Copy/paste a video streaming link from YouTube or Vimeo. A preview of the video will display under the link field, and the video will be accessible from your listing page.
Property details are data points that give a brief overview of some of the most important information about your listing.
To start entering property details, you first must select an Asset Class, and a property Subtype that accurately describes your property.
If you cannot find your Asset Class or Subtype, please reach out to us via support chat (accessible at any time in the bottom left hand corner of the screen) to let us know what we are missing.
After you've entered the Asset Class and Subtype, a number of fields will be populated that are specific to your property type. Please fill out all the fields to the best of your knowledge. The more complete your listing data is, the better it will show up in search.
Price & Guidance
Price & Guidance is the section where you as the broker outline your offer guidance to interested buyers. The fields are:
- Priced: Select Yes or No if you would like pricing displayed on the listing or not.
- Asking Price: If you selected Yes for priced, enter the asking price here.
- Deposit amount: Enter the desired deposit amount
- Buyer/Broker commission: Select whether or not there is a buyer/broker commission
- Due Diligence: Enter the desired number of days requested for Due Diligence
- Closing Period: Enter the desired number of days requested for Closing
In this section you can also choose to activate a Call for Offers date by clicking the toggle button next to the Call for Offers heading.
Once enabled, you can add a specific date when you would like to receive offers by. This date will be displayed on the listing page, actively encouraging buyers to get in the offers before the countdown clock expires.
Buyers will still be able to make offers on the property after the date has expired
Highlights is a section where you can add very specific bullet points about the property that you want to be displayed prominently on the listing page.
To add a highlight, type it into the box that's labeled "Add a highlight" and then click the Plus icon. The Highlight will be inserted below. You can continue to add as many highlights as you would like by typing more highlights into the box and clicking the Plus button.
Once you've added your highlights, you can drag them around in any order you would like them to be displayed in.
You can also delete or edit highlights by clicking the Ellipsis (...) icon on the right side of the highlight box and click the "Edit" or "Delete" buttons from the dropdown menu.
A description is optional long form text that can be added to any listing to properly describe it to potential buyers. Simply type or copy/paste in any text you would like to fill out your listing description.
Due Diligence is a locked vault of files that buyers can access once they have filled out a Confidentiality Agreement. You can keep any number of files inside this vault and you'll be notified whenever new users gain access to it.
The vault contains various folders which are used to organize the information to make it easier for the buyer to find what they are looking for. These folders are:
- Offering Memorandum (you can only put one file in this folder)
- Property Information
- Operation & Financials
- Third Party Reports
If you would like to request another folder or the Due Diligence document vault doesn't cover the categories you would like, please reach out to us via chat by clicking the chat button in the bottom left hand corner of the screen.
You can optionally attach data insights on any property that are supplied by the third party property data aggregator Cherre.
To add data insights, first make sure that an address has been entered in the Basic Information section. We'll search Cherre for data on the entered address, and pull up any tax records associated with that property. Select the specific tax listing that you would like to display data for from the dropdown menu. Once the tax listing has been selected, we'll dynamically pipe in data from Cherre and display it on the listing page.
You can also choose to disable the data insights if you feel they are inaccurate or unhelpful by clicking the green "Enabled" button in the top right corner of the Data Insights section and switching it to "Disabled".
The License section is where you specify whose Real Estate License the listing should be listed under. We require that each listing on Biproxi has a Real Estate License associated with it.
If you haven't created a license yet, click the "Add License" button, and fill out the short license form to add your license number, and the holder of the license. Once the license has been created, it will be automatically selected from the dropdown menu as the license used on the listing.
If you already have licenses created, they will be available via the license dropdown menu. If you have multiple licenses created, you can select the one you would like to use for the listing via this menu.
Publishing and Scheduling
When you've filled out all the necessary data on your listing, you're ready to publish or schedule your listing!
Click the "Publish" button in the top right corner of your screen and a popup will instantly appear with a few options:
- Set it live now
- Schedule it for later
If you would like to immediately publish your listing to all of Biproxi, select the "Set it live now" button and click the "Publish Listing" button.
If you'd rather schedule it to be published at a specific date and time, click the "Schedule it for later" button, and select your desired date & time.
The time zone for publishing will always be the same time zone that the listing exists in.
Alternatively, you can just click the "Save draft" button next to the publishing button, and return to the listing later to complete it.
