For markets that use Listhub as their source for MLS data, there are some common issues that come up when first setting up an account:
Here are the first steps you can take to troubleshoot:
- Has the Broker or Agent already signed up for their free account at www.listhub.com? Note: Agents must have an active listing currently to register. If they don’t have one, Listhub asks they wait until they do.
- If yes, has the Managing Broker responded to an email that they receive from Listhub? All brokers must approve their offices listings to be syndicated before and agent can complete registration. The instructions for this come from Listhub in this email.
- Once approved, ask if your customers Broker has selected HomeFinder.com as a Publisher? This allows Listhub to actually provide listings to HomeFinder.com.
- Agents can verify which listing sites their (i.e. HomeFinder) they will appear on, but only Brokers can select HomeFinder.com as a site to syndicate their listings to (see above.)
Listhub also has short but helpful training videos for Broker and Agents which cover some of the issues above. We recommend these for all Publishers to acquaint yourself with the Listhub opt-in process for MLS listings:
