Virtual Media & Photo Galleries Now Swept From NWMLS

Recently new fields were added into the NWMLS data that IDX providers sweep to acquire listing information. In addition to the newer foreclosure fields, we are now able to sweep Photo Galleries that agents have added to their listing in this specific MLS.

Most photo galleries should sweep in automatically. If for some reason one fails to sweep in, you are able to add it manually via the listings section tab in your admin center. Merely copy the address link of your photo gallery, wherever it may be hosted, and then paste it into the appropriate listing.

Add Virtual Media & Photo Galleries to Your Website

Studies show that visitors appreciate additional property photos and virtual tours.

Fortunately your GraphicalData website allows for Photo Galleries and any other Virtual Tours that are hosted elsewhere to be added by you to your listings.

If you have not added a Photo Gallery or virtual tour to your listings before, here is a quick 1-2-3 on adding a tour:

  • Sign into your admin center, select “Listing” >>> “Inventory” and then “View” the listing to which you would like to add your media.
  • Select “Virtual Tours” within this listing, and add your photo gallery/virtual tour/media link to the “Tour Link” field. You actually have the opportunity to add up to 3 different media links to each listing.

These links will then show on your actual listing each time a visitor views it in your site, as well as every site utilizing the GraphicalData database.

Adding a Virtual Tour or Photo Gallery to Your Listings

It is easy to add a Photo Gallery Tour to your listing in the GraphicalData database. The Photo Gallery will then show as a button when the actual listing is displayed.

But wait, there’s more…most any type of media that has a web address can be attached to your listing. So, this could be the photo gallery, the photo viewer, a 360 degree virtual tour that you have had created, etc.

How? First, determine the address of the Photo Gallery (or other media). Then, just sign into your GraphicalData admin page and select the Listings Tab in the top navigation bar. From there, drill down to “Inventory”. Any listing(s) that are current in the MLS should appear in this section. Select “View” on the listing you wish to add your media web address link to.

The applicable section is called “Virtual Tours”. You will note that there are 3 fields available to hold media links to. Select “Tour 1 Link” to begin. At this same point, are simple instructions on how to proceed. In essence, name what the link is to be called (ie Photo Gallery) and then paste in the link…save, and you are done.

Now, anyone who views your listing, will see your Photo Gallery (or other attached media).

Did You Know That You Can Manage Your Listings?

Did you know that you can add a virtual tour/photo gallery, reposition the listing on the map, and overwrite the MLS comments from your GraphicalData Admin Center?

After logging in, hover above LISTINGS on the top navigation bar, and select INVENTORY.  You will then be taken to all of your listings, from most expensive to least.  You can now navigate to the listing you wish to alter, and either click on the picture, or the listing number to the right of the picture.

You will then be on the Listing Information page, where items can be modified.  The 3 boxes under Virtual Tours can be used for Photo Galleries, Virtual Tours, or other media for this listing.  Beneath this section is the Listing Description, anything you enter here will overwrite the MLS remarks only on GraphicalData websites.

To the right of this feature is the map where you can change the position of the property if positioned incorrectly.  If you CLICK HERE TO REPOSITION PROPERTY you will go to a different page that has the location of the property, you can then click and drag the sign to the desired location.  After it is in the correct spot, click UPDATE LAT/LONG.
