When listing a property in your Eagle account that you have already previously listed, you are given the option to 'Clone' your original rather than creating a new one from scratch. When cloning a previous listing, the cloned listing will copy all property specific information (Photo's, descriptions, Beds, Baths etc) and delete all listing specific information (Inspections, Dates, Notes etc) so you are given a fresh listing to advertise.
When should I Clone a listing?
Best practice is to always clone a listing anytime you re-advertise a property that is already in your Eagle account. This will ensure that the property is advertised as a 'New' listing on the real estate portals.
To clone a listing
Open the listing you wish to clone
Once in that listing, in the top right corner you will see a button saying 'Clone Listing'. Click that button.
You will be asked what you want the listing to be. Select the listing type you need from the drop down menu, then press 'Clone Listing'
Now you will be taken to a fresh listing for the property in 'Draft' status.
What happens if I change a previously 'Let' property back to 'Active' to re-advertise?
Best practice is to clone listings when you re-advertise, however Realestate and Domain will act accordingly if you do reactive a previously let listing.
Domain & RealEstate.com.au will only treat a listing as 'New' once. If you are re-advertising a previously let property you will need to clone it (therefore creating a unique listing ID) to ensure the listing is advertised as 'New' and gets the appropriate exposure.
Realestate.com.au - A duplicate error will occur if you create a new listing with the same address within 60 days of a previous listing being withdrawn.
- Do not clone a listing within 60 days of the listing being withdrawn
- After 60 days, always clone the listing
The active portals will not be cloned. The portals will be set to your default selections found in you Eagle Agent admin.
