 How to place Real Estate Ads for log homes,

cabins, land, farms or ranches on loghomes.com.

 
Hello!

 Loghomes.com has been on the Internet 24 years helping mills, builders, realtors and log home owners sell or purchase log homes and cabins.  Recently we added real estate listings for farms, ranches and undeveloped land.  Soon we will be adding Country Homes of all kinds for sale.  I am rebuilding www.loghomes.com adding new features. 

Automated credit card billing has been turned off for Security while remodeling loghomes.com.  Save your ad all the way into the checkout area where you are asked for your credit card.  Then log out.  I will see the pending ad and approve it.  You will receive my email invoice for payment by check or on our new PayPal gateway.  

YOU CAN LOGIN AND EDIT THE AD 24 -7 365 DAYS A YEAR.

Update: Our PayPal payment gateway is under the Information Tab on LogHomes.com. This is a safe and secure method of Payment. You do not have to be a member of PayPal to make a credit card payment after you receive our invoice. No credit card information is stored on www.loghomes.com.

There are three ad types offered.  All billing is quarterly except for specials and Top Banner Ads.

All Real Estate Ads are searchable in Log Homes For Sale and by State. 3-22-17.

We bill quarterly until the ad is about to expire, then we bill monthly.

 

The State Ad is $52.50 for 3 months. State ads are listed in their respective state and also rotate on the bottom of about 70% of the public pages.

 

The  Rotating Feature Ad is $171.00  for 3 months.   Feature ads rotate on the front page and all over the web site on published pages.

 

Top banner Logo ads are $888.00 for 6 months or $1700.00 per year. These ads rotate on the top of every page on the web site.

 

Note: We only bill monthly when ads are due to expire or have less than 3 months to run. 

 

The state ad is $17.50 per month, the feature ad is $57.00 per month, the Top Banner ad is $148 per month.

 

While the web site is being remodeled I am placing the ad for you to finish.  Email me the MLS number, your full contact information, and the type of ad you wish to place.  This offer applies to Realtor and Owner Ads.   Click here to contact me for advertising assistance.

 

 Here are the basic steps to placing a Log Home Real Estate ad on loghomes.com.  The detailed steps follow.

    • Create your user name and password.  See the Login / Register tab on our home page?  Click on the tab.  Then in the right box Click on "Register".  Enter your name create your user name and password and SAVE.  Then log out to set your password.  Do not use any password you may be using with a bank or credit card, etc.
    • Login using your new user name and password.
    • When you Login scroll down the right column of the Login page to PROPERTY LISTINGS.  This is the real estate advertising section.
    • Select the kind of real estate ad 1 photo ad, 10 photo ad, or Feature Ad you would like to place and click on the link.  Note: all advertising is monthly billing.
    • Fill out the form, upload the photos and submit - saving the ad to the Shopping Cart and then to Check Out. Please note.
    • Please Note:  I am rebuilding www.loghomes.com adding new features.  Automated credit card billing has been turned off for advertiser Security.  We will see the ad and email you our invoice.  Ads will be posted and published waiting for your check to arrive in 7 working days.   On Tuesday 11-24-2015  we activated our PayPal payment gateway under the Information Tab on LogHomes.com.

 

Detailed steps to posting real estate ads on www.loghomes.com. (a must read)

This is how you set up any ad on loghomes.com. The process is not difficult.

  • Select the ad type / value that you wish to post, then Click.  The form opens.  Review the form before you post the ad. 
  • There are 2 description fields.  The one that you fill out is Property Description under the MLS number or above the Land Size field.  The 2nd description field is filled out by our ad manager for the search engines.
  • Blank fields ARE NOT posted.
  • We allow up to 1000 words of advertising copy per ad in the description field.
  • All ads are reviewed for typos, grammar, etc.

 

Posting photos to your ad.

  • Pre arrange your photos in a folder on your computer.
  • Size the photo's.  Giant digital Images are not acceptable and cannot be saved because of our size limitation.
  • Size Standard horizontal photos to 600 pixels wide.  Size vertical photos to 350 pixels wide.
  • When uploading photos do not save any photo while uploading photos.  Click on the Add Photo button which opens your computer.  Select folder photos to upload in the order which you want them to appear.  Click on the photo you select 2 times.  Once to select the image and once to connect the photo to the add.  Click on the Add Photo button to add additional photo's.  NOTE: All Photos are automatically uploaded to the ad when the ad is saved, not before. The current photo limit is 10 photos. YOU DO NOT SAVE INDIVIDUAL PHOTOS. ALL PHOTOS ARE SAVED WHEN YOU SAVE THE AD.

 

Preparing advertising copy.

Use your word processor to write your advertising copy.   Then save the copy as a .txt file to cut and past into your ad.   You may use up to 1000 words to describe the property, location, local and regional amenities.    I suggest that your paragraphs flow with the images and are limited to 3-5 sentences.   Over the past 22 years I have noticed that people do not like large blocks of abbreviated copy.
 
 
All forms are the same.
Our required Fields are: Listing Type, Property Name, Property Description, Land Size in SF or Acres, Square Footage and Actual Square Footage are required.
 
 
Interruptions when placing an ad.  We have you covered.
If you get interrupted while placing an ad - save what you have all the way past the shopping cart into CHECKOUT.  When you have reached CHECKOUT you will see the SHOPPING CART and credit card images.  This creates the invoice and saves the ad.  Now you can log out and come back later to finish the ad.
 

 Tips about filling out our forms:

Fill out the form starting with “Property name:” Property name means "Title of your ad". Example: Log Home for sale in Alabama with 25 acres and small stream. (This is how the world sees your ad. If you make a mistake we will fix it.)
 

 Property Type:

Select the type of property you are selling by clicking on the down arrow button.  Type means what are you selling? There are 4 options. Click the down arrow button and click on your selection.
 
DO NOT TELL EVERYTHING ABOUT THE PROPERTY, ALWAYS LEAVE SOMETHING OUT.
Provide a reason for the prospective buyer to contact you.  Until you make contact you will never know who is interested in your market area or what they are really looking for.   You may place up to 1000 words of advertising copy in the Box under the MLS number.
 

The rest of the form is normal real estate information. However, our form is more buyer oriented than any you have used in the past.

We deliberately left out room sizes to create a forced point of contact.

Price is entered near the bottom of the form as $700000.00 not as $700,000.00.

At the bottom of the form Below PRICE is an area called Publishing Description. Leave that area blank. We fill that information in for the search engines.

 We check the ads several times a day to approve them for posting 9AM-6PM  M-F. Once the ad has been posted we check it to be sure it is showing. You may log in anytime to change copy or photographs.

 

Testing the AD.

We test the email form on every ad to be sure the form is working and that you have provided a good email address.

 

Receiving Email from your log home for sale ad.

We recommend that you white list each of the following as trusted resources with your email program; loghomes.com, This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it , This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

 

How to place your Personal Photo on the Ad:

 After the ad has been posted,  LOGIN: Scroll down the page till you reach Property ListingsSee the Edit MY Profile in Property Listings Section?   Click on it and upload your photograph the same way you uploaded the photographs for your ad.  You only have to do this one time for your image to appear with every ad.

 

Archiving ads:
We archive all sold, expired, or removed ads for 6-12 months.
 

We are working every day creating new points of contact for prospective buyers.  Your suggestions are  always welcome.

Enjoy the Service.

Real Estate Property Listings:

Advertising is an interesting term. There are two ways to approach advertising. You can either tell your prospective buyers everything they need to know, or withhold enough information to pique their interest and have them contact you for more details.
 
Here at Loghomes.com we provide you with the most expansive real estate form available on the Internet. You have fields for everything down to water rights available on the property.

You can log in at any time and edit your advertising information.

After you create your account and log in, scroll down the user menu until you find the “Property Manager". From there you can create your agent profile, new ad listings and manage current listings.

 
Click on Add Property:
This will take you to the Listing Page where you will see the listing options. Select the type of ad for this listing.

 

The required fields are as follows:

Property Title. Type of property, Country / Province, Property Country, Advertising Copy, Land Size in SF or Acres, Square Footage.

Remember that any Data you enter will be published and viewable to the prospective buyer.

 
Publishing: Search engine tools on the real estate listing form:
At the bottom of the form you will see the term Publishing, followed by Description and a text box, and Keywords with a text box. These are called Meta Tags. The Meta Description is that brief detailed description you see when searching the Internet for a term.
 
Description:
In the Description text box, describe this property with no more than 256 characters including spaces.
 
Example: Log home for sale in Georgia with 5br and 3ba on 5 acres with 1 barn and workshop.

 

Keywords: (use brief terms separated by commas.)
Example: Georgia cabin for sale, Georgia home for sale, log home for sale, Georgia real estate for sale, Georgia home for sale near (x city).
 
Adding Photographs:
To add a photo click “add photo" at the bottom of the listing and use the interface to select the photo on your computer and upload it. The Upload will take place when you SAVE the listing. Do not save individual photographs while building the ad. Horizontal images should be 600 pixels wide. Vertical images should be 350 pixels wide. Giant digital images may be rejected.
 
 
Want / Need Ad Placement Assistance:
Contact me for assistance and I will build the ad for you. Realtors email me your mls number and I will start the ad which you can edit. FSBO email me the photos and a description of the property and I will start the ad which you can edit. Click on the Email US message link and tell us how we can assist you.

Be sure to keep an eye out for the family of deer who arrive in the early dawn hours to graze in their familiar spot, located just to the right of the deck. Imagine the horses, their graceful beauty as they gallop along the fences; the ducks, swimming quietly in the calm waters.
