Some highlights among our 1122 websites are:

How many photos can I place in my property listing?

You can load eight pictures for each property (with an ideal size of 200kb – 400kb, or 600 x 800 pixels) and can change these as often as you like. There is also the option to have the system automatically show a satellite photo of the exact point on the map where your property is located.

Can I edit the advertisement once it is published?

You can make as many changes to your advertisement as you like. Once you have published your property you are given easy access to a Control Panel where you can edit and update information and photos as often as you wish.

What happens once the property is sold?

Once you sell the property you can remove the advertisement if you wish. If you represent an agency, it may be helpful to simply write ‘SOLD’ in the description, and encourage visitors to view your other listings or contact you for similar properties.

What kind of information I can put in the advertisement?

The announcement will automatically contain the following information:
Property type: ex. House, apartment, condominium, etc
Type of operation: eg for sale or rent
Price: in Dollars, Euros or Pounds
Location: country, region, area and specific area
Number of bedrooms/bathrooms

You can also place a description of the property you wish to sell or rent out. We suggest that it contains the following information: description of the property, measurements in square metres or feet, condition of the property, and a description of the surrounding area where the property is located.

Many potential buyers will not know much about where your property is located and it is therefore important to describe the characteristics of this area. You might mention the main attractions that are nearby the property such as museums, theatres, shopping, distance to train stations or other forms of transport, airports (we advise you to include this information in minutes by car or on foot).
It is important to highlight the unique qualities that your property has, to distinguish it from the rest. For example, panoramic views, near schools, near the beach, near shopping and so forth.
You can place a link to any website where you have more information about your property, and any additional contact information, such as email addresses.

What are the payment options, and what security can the IREA-AII give me?

How do potential buyers come to see my ad on the Internet?

The 1122 portals that form the IREA-AII are very well positioned in the leading search engines Google, Yahoo and Bing.
On average, more than 500 people visit each of the International Real Estate Alliance portals daily, which means more than 300 000 people visit our network of websites every day, totalling more than 2 million visitors on a weekly basis and 8 MILLION monthly. This means your advertisement will be exposed to more than 80 million visitors over 12 months, since your listing can be accessed from all 1122 sites that make up the International Real Estate Alliance.
All websites have a property search function that allows you to search by specifying location, property type, price, and so forth. When a potential buyer enters the specific criteria that match your property, your listing will appear complete with description, photos and your own contact details. Potential buyers will therefore contact you directly by email, telephone or online chat if you have chosen to share your Skype and/or MSN username.

How do I get in touch with potential buyers?

The thousands of potential buyers who visit the websites will, on viewing your advertisement, see your contact details: telephone, email, Skype, MSN and any other information you have entered. Interested parties can thus get in contact with the advertiser, but not vice versa.

How do I list a property on the 1122 IREA-AII portals?

To advertise a property on all portals, please take the following steps:

  1. Select the number of properties that you want to publish (30 seconds)
  2. Specify advertiser’s contact information and property information. You can place the photos of the property at this time or once the ad is placed (5 minutes per property)
  3. Confirm information entered (10 seconds)
  4. Select form of payment (10 seconds)
  5. Enter your payment details (2 minutes)

How long will it take for my listing to be published on all of the property portals?

Once the request is sent, it passes a manual security check and payment is processed within 24 hours. You will receive a welcome email, notifying the successful publication of your ad on the 1122 sites. In the same email you will receive a username and password that allows you to make changes to your advertisement from a Control Panel accessed from any one of our websites. This process can take from two to 24 hours.
