How to set up your adverts for single lets and shared accomodation to publish to the portals

This article is about setting up your properties so they present well when advertising. With regard, shared accommodation each portal has its own unique requirements that will need to be adhered to and which are explained below. The unit type list that’s on offer is restricted to what the portals accept, which is why it is a different list to that on offer when creating properties and units.

This article is linked to how to sync to the portals.

Two important fields for posting shared accommodation include:

  1. ‘Total sharing Tenancies’ – this field is used by Zoopla to display the total number of bedrooms within the shared accommodation.
  2. ‘Bedrooms Available’ – this field is used by Zoopla to display how many bedrooms are available to let.

 

 

b) Rightmove

  1. ‘Total Sharing Tenancies’ – this field is used by Rightmove to display shared accommodation. However, Rightmove doesn’t accept any information about how many ‘Total Sharing Tenancies’ there are, so it could be 2 or 10.
  2. ‘Bedrooms Available’ – this field is used by Rightmove to display how many bedrooms are available to let.

 

 

c) StuRents

Two important fields for posting shared accommodation include:

  1. ‘Total Sharing Tenancies’ – this field is used by StuRents to display the total number of bedrooms within the shared accommodation.
