Import Properties into Real Places Theme

Description

The Real Places Add-On for WP All Import makes it easy to bulk import your property listings to the Real Places theme in less than 10 minutes.

The left side shows all of the fields that you can import to and the right side displays a property listing from your XML/CSV file. Then you can simply drag & drop the data from your XML or CSV into the Real Places fields to import it.

The importer is so intuitive it is almost like manually adding a property listing in Real Places.

We have several other real estate add-ons available, each specific to a different theme. This is a walkthrough of the Realia Add-On, which is very similar to the Real Places Add-On.

Why you should use the Real Places Add-On for WP All Import

  • Instead of using the Custom Fields section of WP All Import, you are shown the fields like Property Address, Price, etc. in plain English.

  • Automatically find the property location using either the property address or the latitude and longitude.

  • Import property features, type, city and status to Real Places’ property search dropdowns.

  • Link your imported properties to their real estate agent. If they don’t exist yet new agents will be created.

  • Easily import gallery images, property attachments, sliders, and property videos.

  • Supports files in any format and structure. There are no requirements that the data in your file be organized in a certain way. CSV imports into Real Places is easy, no matter the structure of your file.

  • Supports files of practically unlimited size by automatically splitting them into chunks. WP All Import is limited solely by your server settings.
