MarketBoost : Creating a Market

This article will explain how to use the Control Panel to create a Market. For tips on making effective Markets for your area, review our Best Practices guide.

 

Watch a demonstration:

 

Step by step instructions:

1. Access your Control Panel and click the Markets button.

 

2. Click Add A Market

 

3 .Name your Market. This name will appear in the MarketBoost navigation as well as in the emails sent to this Market’s subscribers.

 

4. Select the type of search you want to use for your Market. Keep in mind that Open Home and Market Report pages and emails are unavailable for Manual searches.

 

5. Enter the search criteria on the form that presents.  

If you’ve selected a Polygon search, zoom or drag the map to the location you desire. Begin your polygon by clicking the map, then outline the area you'd like used in your search. Double-click to complete your polygon, or close it by dropping the final point on top of the initial point. Edit the shape by dragging any existing map point, or erase your polygon over and begin again by clicking Start Over

As you enter your search, a box will appear on the top right of your screen indicating how many results are returned from your current search criteria. Click the link to view the search results, but note that the page presented is a standard search results page and is not a preview of your Market’s Listing Report.

 

6. Click Save when your search is complete.
