I want to add photos to my ad but do not have digital pictures.

I have spent a long time entering my details only to find out that I have been logged out and my data
has been lost.
You need to save your advertisement often as you go along.
If you spend more than 30 minutes on one page without saving the system will log you out automatically.
Click “Save changes” at regular intervals and use “Save and Continue” when you have finished entering the information on each page.
I have a number of units for sale within my property; do I have to place a seperate ad for each
No, you can place one ad for each type of unit you have available. For instance, if you have 3 one bed apartments available, you can place one ad and state that there are 3 units available. If you also have 2 three bed apartments in the same property, you would place a new ad and state that there are 2 units available. To make this easier you can duplicate an ad and then simply change the "number of bedrooms" field.
How do I get my ad to appear at the top of the listings?
Ads are sorted randomly, however, those
ads which are regularly updated will be treated with
a higher priority and will appear further up the listings.
The location of my property does not appear in your location lists.
On the locations page, choose the continent,
country and regions as far as you can. You will then be given a link through which you can email us a request to add in your resort/town. If you do not see the link, you we will not be able to add in any further locations, however, on the main locations page you will be given a free text field in order to enter your ultimate location. It is also recommended that you include your local area in your advert heading.
Locations will not appear on the search side of the site until a property has been added to it.
