Here's a brief synopsis for completing the Listing Content form above:

Title:
This can be up to 120 chars and should be a very concise sentence about what you are selling and its approximate location. Only use alphabetic and numeric characters and avoid speech marks, commas, dashes, etc.

Friendly URL:
This will be inserted as an automatically generated, hyphenated string.

Short Description & Description:
Again, be concise but include as much relevant detail about your property as possible. You can increase the size of the entry box by clicking and dragging the bottom right corner.

Keywords:
The words or phrases you insert here are used by the website's internal keyword search engine when a visitor to the site uses the Keyword Search function.

Address 1 & 2:
You only need to include information here if you want to display it on your listing. If your house is vacant a lot of the time, because your main residence is elsewhere, you are better not declaring the full postal address of the property.

Location:
These are two cascading select fields to accurately locate your property by its French Region and Departement. Selecting the correct location for your property is very important because it is used for searches and the Google Map co-ordinates.

Location Text3:
Insert the Town or Village when your property is located. This information is also used for Searches and the Google Map reference. In 99.5% of cases these two locations provide accurate placement info for Google Maps but if necessary, you can manually insert grid co-ordinates.

Email:
make sure you include your email address. This is used by BAHH to send you details of respsonses to your Advert Listing. It is not displayed to the public.

Price & Price Qualifier:
Enter the asking price of your property or business in Euros. This should be a numeric value only, with no commas, spaces or currency symbols. The Price Qualifier is optional. 

The next few boxes are used to display your contact information and key information about your property. Entering complete information here will save time in answering questions later in protracted email exchanges with your potential buyer!

Main Image:
Upload the main image for your property. Your will be able to upload additional photos to your gallery once you have submitted the main content for your advert.

Features 1-10:
You can insert key selling points about your property in these boxes. These will be displayed on your advert listing as a indented bullet-list. 

When you have completed the remaining fields, click the Submit button to upload your Advert.
