Welcome to iVendre. We recommend that you carefully read this guide so you will then be able to easily create your web page. This guide helps you to provide your potential purchasers with all the details about your property.

Preparation

We recommend that you prepare the description of your property before you begin creating your web page. We suggest you use our  Getting Prepared document, which you can save and print. You can then copy and paste in your text when creating your web page online.

It is important to clearly describe each room, outbuilding and the grounds. The potential buyer will then be able to visualise your property from your description and photos. Photos are essential to selling your property. Check our your Support page Taking your Photos.  If you want to add a video, we recommend you check out the guide Upload Your Video to a video service e.g. YouTube, Daily Motion, Vimeo etc.
