What Your Listing Includes

You can make your listing as detailed as you want... and we encourage you to do so! You can add lengthy descriptions, detailed amenities, contact information & office hours, floor plans, pricing information, unlimited photos, and more!

Pricing & Featuring Your Listings

All types of listings are free except Large Apartment Communities (which can choose between Performance Listings or Featured Listings) and short term rentals.

You can increase the exposure your listing receives and make it stand out from the crowd by featuring your listing. These Featured Listings are our highest priority listings on HotPads, shown on the highest zoom levels, and promoted throughout the site. They are also rotated through the Featured Listing platform in the map search where they receive the large, contrasting icon and blue expanded preview box. The cost to feature your listing is just $1 a day!

Creating & Managing your listings

Creating Your Listings on HotPads

It's fast and easy to create a listing on HotPads!

To get started, sign into your account (if you do not yet have an account, create one here) and click "create your listing now!" on the home page or select "my listings" under the "my hotpads" menu.

You will be taken to the listing creation portal that will walk you step-by-step through the quick process of making a detailed HotPads listing! Once you have filled in all the descriptions and fields you can, you can preview your listing and then activate it! (You can always go back and edit your listing at any point).

After you have created the listing and activated it, we give you the option to feature your listing and/or promote it on other sites.

Sending Listings Via Feed

HotPads also accepts XML feeds if you have numerous listings. See our
feed details & examples.

Managing your listings

We also make it really easy to keep track of all of your listings by storing them together under "my listings."

From this dashboard, you can see all of your listings and their active or inactive status. You can also edit the listings right from this portal by clicking the "edit" button next to the property name.

So, what are you waiting for?
