Please click on your relevant country to see specific changes to you: New Zealand / Australia / South Africa / America / Canada

 

 

 

ALL COUNTRIES:

IMPORTANT: Office/Personal Websites Display Listings – There was an issue with not being able to change/save Display Listings on Office/Personal websites due to how close the URL/webpage address for Residential Rentals was with some of the other URL’s/webpage addresses. To fix this we have changed the URL/webpage address for Residential Rentals. We have also set up a re-direction on the old links so they still work, however, if you have any email marketing templates (most likely rental property lists) with a link to your website to view all rental properties, we suggest that you change/update the link to the new one. The same goes if you have a link on a page on your website that links to the Residential Rentals page, the link should be changed/updated.

NEW ZEALAND ONLY:


VERY IMPORTANT: Trade Me Export – We are changing the way we export listings to Trade Me. This change will make the feed faster and more reliable. In order for Listings to export via the new feed Business Owners, Managers or Office Administrators need to link your office HarcourtsOne account to your Trade Me account. An email was sent directly to Business Owners and Office Administrators with instructions on how to do this last Friday, 23rd September. It's very important that this is done by the weekend of the 1st and 2nd October otherwise your listings will not feed or update on Trade Me after that weekend. If you missed the email please click here for the instructions.

Renewing Email Addresses – There was an issue when trying to renew an Email Address in HarcourtsOne. This has been fixed so you can renew your Email Address. To do this you need to go to Settings / View Product Subscriptions / click Renew:

Licensed REAA 2008 Styling – When viewing personal websites on a mobile device the ‘Licensed REAA 2008’ at the top of the home page was showing on the left where everything else was centred, this will now be centred.

AUSTRALIA ONLY:

Domain Export – The Domain export will now add Garages and Parking together before sending parking spaces to Domain so that it will display all available parking. For example: if you set Garage as 1 and Off Street Parking as 2 in H1, Domain will now show Parking as 3. Previously this would have shown as 1 just for Garage.

QLD ONLY – QLD will now have a Method of Sale pricing option of ‘Offers Over – Price’ e.g. Offers Over $500,000. This new Pricing Option will display on HarcourtsOne, Harcourts Public Websites, Other Real Estate Websites, Email Marketing, Client Flyers, Window Cards, Reports and Campaign Track.

SOUTH AFRICA ONLY:

Residential Rental Per Night & Per Week Rate – We have added the options of Per Night and Per Week to Residential Rental Listings in H1 on top of the current Per Month option. This will be reflected n HarcourtsOne, Email Marketing, Harcourts Websites, Other Real Estate Websites, Client Flyers, Reports and Window Cards.

Location Search Results – There was an issue when searching for locations/suburbs in HarcourtsOne where it would only show the first 20 results in alphabetical order, we have changed this to show all results. As an example if you searched for ‘Village’ you would not get the location of 'Marina Village' because that is under the district of 'St Francis Bay' and H1 was only showing results down to 'Inanda' which was the 20th result.

AMERICA ONLY:

Website Inquiries – inquiries from Harcourts listings on Harcourts websites will now go directly to the listing agent and inquiries from non-Harcourts listings will go to inquiryusa@harcourts.net. These non Harcourts inquiries will be distributed to the most appropriate office.

Listing Location Repeating – On many listings if the City and Neighborhood are the same it would show/repeat which would show in both H1 and the Harcourts Websites. We have made a change so the repeat shouldn’t happen on the Harcourts Websites.

Public Website Terminology – We have changed the wording of ‘Free Property Appraisal to ‘Free Property Analysis’.

USA Wording Change to Free Property Analysis

Hawaii MLS Thumbnails – Hawaii listings thumbnails on the listing results page on Harcourts Websites were coming from the MLS and were very low quality/blurry. We have made a change so that we make our own thumbnails using the high resolution image.

Delay Auto-complete Search – When searching on Harcourts Websites currently auto-complete tries to find what it thinks you are looking for every time you add a letter. This is slowing down the search and can show some odd results. We have delayed the auto-complete so that it will wait until you have finished typing before it searches. This should improve the speed and accuracy of the auto-complete search.

Office/Personal Websites Search – On the home page of Office/Personal Websites in the header section in the middle there is a search option. Previously this didn’t auto-complete like the Search Property widgets on the left hand side, but it will now.
