We are very pleased to announce two new major upgrades to your Personal Site: MLS Rentals Data and Map Based Search. The YGL team is always looking to push the envelope to provide our users with more value. Don’t hesitate to send us your feedback.
We also updated the Profile page into 3 separated sections: User Info / Account Settings, Personalize My Ads and Customize My Site. You will find all the Personal Site related settings in the Customize My Site section.
MLS Rentals Data
If you have an active MLS account, you can now pull MLS rentals data into your personal site. The MLS rentals data will display alongside of your YGL data. To enable it, from the Dashborad, go to Profile and then Customize My Site. Once there, you will need to provide us with your MLS ID, and choose Yes to Enable MLS Rentals setting.
Please note that it is required by MLS, that the exact address of the property is displayed on the site.
Map Based Search Interface (Beta)
Map based search interface recently has gained a lot of popularity. Many of the popular websites are built on map based interfaces. For example, Hotpads, Zillow, Google Real Estate, etc.
YGL now provides you with your very own powerful map based search directly integrated into your personal site linked to your YGL account. You can enable your map based search interface by going to your Profile -> Customize My Site section, and turn on Enable Map Search.
If you prefer the map search interface over the original list based interface, you can make it the default search interface. When someone hits your site, they’ll be taken directly to the map search. Also, the ads you post now will also be directly linked to the map search interface.
Please keep in mind that our Map Search Interface is currently free and it is in beta testing. Please try it and report any bugs to us. We also appreciate your feedback as always.
Coming next, we’ll be doing lead capturing into YGL Leads tab directly from your personal site.
