In order to publish your properties in the best way, SweepBright provides different channels to integrate with. Besides various real estate portals and social channels, SweepBright comes with your own agency website. It's fully future-proof, mobile responsive, 360°-images compatible and more. Best of all, it is readily available as soon as you publish your first listing! Just follow this one - time (no coding) setup and you're good to go!
Let's configure your agency website together
You can personalize your SweepBright site just how you like it. To do this, click on the Channels item from the Admin menu
In the left hand panel, select Website and the central panel then displays the various personalization options. Click on Homepage to get started.
You can select your own cover image or video for your homepage. You can choose between the default illustration, or select a cover image or video. Upload it by clicking on the blue '+Upload' link. Make sure you select an image with sufficient resolution!
What a great way to start! We're sure it will look great on your website.
The Highlights section proposes 2 ways to display your listings on your homepage:
- New Properties : this will display the most recently published properties on your homepage
- 3 Highlighted Properties : this option enables you to select 3 properties of your choice to display on your homepage. When you select this option, you can add the properties you want to highlight, by click on the Add Highlight button.
Select the first property you want to display on your homepage and click on the Add button. The properties that have not been published on your website are not available to choose from. So if you can't see a certain property in this list, make sure you have published it first to your website in the Publish section.
Repeat that step 3 times in order to have 3 properties displayed on your home page. You can drag them around to change their order. Don't forget to hit the save button to keep your changes.

The Text section enables you to choose the languages (English/French/Dutch) you wish your visitors to access your website in. This means you can have a multi-language site without an effort!
