Import Property Listings into WP Residence

Description

The WP Residence Add-On for WP All Import makes it easy to bulk import your property listings to the WP Residence 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 WP Residence fields to import it.

The importer is so intuitive it is almost like manually adding a property listing in WP Residence.

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 WP Residence Add-On.

Why you should use the WP Residence 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.

  • Complete support for WP Residence custom fields – add new fields in WP Residence’s theme options and import to them with the add-on’s drag and drop interface.

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

  • Import property actions, type, city and areas to WP Residence’ advanced property search dropdowns.

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

  • Assign properties to WordPress users.

  • Add new features and amenities automatically during import.

  • Easily import propert images, 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 WP Residence are 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.
