The following instructions help you to create a new advert with just a few steps:

  1. Property:

    • Offer type, property type, sub-property type.
    • Add the location > You decide whether you want to enter only the town or also the exact address (tick “Publish street / no.”). If our marker is not set correctly, you can move it by grabing it with your mouse and placing it on the correct house. 
  2. Details:
    • Enter more detailed information about the object.
    • In the “Description” you can bring your object even closer to the searcher.
  3. Media:
    • Upload the floor plan, pictures and other documents.
      Attention: Please make sure that the documents and pictures are all object-related and that you upload at least one picture.
  4. Contact:
  5. You are almost done:
    • Select “Go to publish” and choose the term your listing should be online.
      • Optimisations:
        If you wish, you can book various optimisations here to give your ad more visibility
      • Anonymous publishing:
        Choose this in order to not show your contact details in the advert. (name and phone number)

We do our best to ensure that your advertisement is activated as quickly as possible. This usually takes a maximum of one working day. Objects are neither checked nor activated on weekends and public holidays.

 

We are happy to briefly explain the different statuses to you:

  • In progress: You have already created your listing, but it has not been completed and/or published now.  You can complete your listing at any time in the listing management area (My newhome > “My adverts“) and publish it. 
  • Under review: Before completely being published, the listing is reviewed to ensure that it complies with our general terms.
  • Rejected: If the listing fails to meet newhome’s quality standards, it will be rejected. For more information, please read our general terms.
  • Active: If the listing meets our quality requirements and is therefore published on newhome.ch
  • Inactive: The listing is not live at this time. You can activate the listing in the listing management area (My newhome > “My adverts“) at any time. 
    Listings with the “inactive” status are permanently deleted after 30 days.

We ensure that all advertisements comply with our advertising guidelines. This ensures the quality of the ads on our platform.

If you have received an e-mail, stating that you listing has been temporarily rejected your listing doesn’zt quite meet our guidelines.

To publish your listing, you only have to change what has been noted in the e-mail according to our guidelines and publish your listing again. Of course there will be no additional cost for another check and publication of your list if your term hasn’t come to an end already.

We do reserve the right to reject an advert due to our general terms

Below you will find examples of why an advert may be rejected:

  • property type is not correct
  • property has been advertised in the wrong location
  • property has the wrong price
  • contact details are insufficient
  • size of the living space is not correct
  • availability does not match the description
  • number of rooms does not match the description
  • telephone number/email not allowed in description (enter only in the given fields)
  • typographical exaggerations (special characters, multiple exclamation marks, etc.) are not permitted.
  • content is discriminatory
  • incorrect telephone number
  • none of the images given is corresponding to our insertion policy
  • object is already advertised
  • property is not situated in Switzerland
  • you have advertised the object more than once
  • sold properties may not be advertised
  • object is a search ad

Reasons for refusal of pictures:

  • picture contains aerial photographs:
    Aerial photographs must not violate the data protection law and the rules of personal privacy protection 
  • the publication of image material is protected:
    Maps or part of maps may not be published for copyright reasons
  • car registration plates are visible
  • private rooms of third parties are visible
  • persons are recognizable
  • copyrights are missing
  • picture is not property related
  • picture is a photo collage (not allowed in FREE)

We are a platform where no search advertisements can be published.

For searchers, images are a quality feature and illustrate how an object looks like. Listings without pictures are often not perceived enough by seekers.

If you cannot upload images, there may be various reasons for this:

  • Problem: the image is too big (max. file size: 13 MB) – newhome cancels the upload automatically if it takes too long.
  • Solution: reduce the size of your images to the minimum necessary and use a compression program if necessary.
  • Problem: the file path to your saved image is too long – newhome occasionally has problems with paths that are too long.
  • Solution: if necessary, copy your image to a higher level of your directory structure or to a USB stick before uploading.
    Example:
    instead of: C:\data\properties\appenzell\highstreet\floor1\images\bathroom.jpg
    use:  C:\images\bathroom.jpg or C:\bathroom.jpg
  • Always select your images via “Browse” instead of entering the path manually – this is also a common source of errors.
  • newhome only accepts images in the formats *.jpg, *jpeg, *.gif or *.png.

If you still have problems, please send an email with the corresponding error message to [email protected]

For searchers, it is clearer if all advertisements appear with a uniform title in the search results list, which neutrally lists the most important characteristics of the property:

Type of property and size (number of rooms for apartments and houses; area for commercial premises)

The title of the property is visible on the details page of the advert and serves as an attractive summary of the main features of the published property.

In editing under “Property” the marker is automatically set at the address you specified. However, you can move the automatically set marker under “Object” independently. Please follow these steps:

  1. Click “My newhome
  2. Click “My adverts
  3. Click “Manage listing
  4. Click “Edit and scroll down
  5. Click on the marker and keep the mouse button pressed and move the marker
  6. Click on “Go to publish
  7. Either select an optimisation to improve the visibility of the advert or switch to “publish without promotion“. It is important that you click “Publish” after this step.

If the booked period has expired or if you have deactivated the advertisement without archiving it, it will remain for a maximum of 30 days (retention period). After 20 days of inactivity you will be informed by email that your inactive listing will be deleted in 10 days unless it is activated or archived. You get a last reminder 1 day before deletion. After that, your advertisement will be irrevocably deleted.

If you decide to publish your object anonymusly, you can only be contacted via contact form. The interested party sees all the details about the property, but nothing of your personal data like your telefon number or your e-mail adress.

Place your listing anonymusly can be useful when you do not want to be contacted via telephone at any chance. The only way you can be contacted is through our contact form (you only receive e-mails).

Increase the visibility of a listing

Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee how many inquiries you will receive.
The number of views and with this the number of requests really depends on the property type, location and season.

In case you receive only a few or none requests, it could be because of the following reasons:

  • The design of your advert
  • The photos have a bad quality
  • The description is not clear enough for the searchers

Here are some hacks on how to design your advert:

  • Choose a title and description that’s simple but interesting
  • Add the complete address
  • Use a detailed description which broadens the appeal of your property
  • Add additional documents like the floor plan and the documentation
  • Use good quality photos and pay attention to the order
  • Add the description in several languages

With our additional services like e.g. different kinds of promotions, you can highlight your advert and therefore generate more views.

Services for advertisers

 

For a virtual tour, the entire property is captured in pictures by our photographer and then edited so that a potential interested party can already walk through the property in the advertisement as if they were on site. This strengthens the first impression in contrast to pure picture

Our photographer will take professional images of your property for you. These are edited so that your property is shown in the best light.
In addition, the pictures can also be edited so that furniture is added virtually, so that prospective buyers can already get an idea of what the lived-in property might look like.

If you want to highlight not only the object, but also the surroundings and/or the view, drone shots are ideally suited for this.

With the TOP promotion, your ad always appears as one of the first in the search results and receives the TOP seal. This means your ad will be seen more often.

With the HIGHLIGHT promotion, your advertisement will also appear as one of the first in the hit list. But in addition, it will be highlighted in pink, receive the HIGHLIGHT seal and thus attract even more interest.

With the SPECIAL promotion, your ad will not only appear in the respective hit list, but also above the hit list for every search made within a 15 kilometre radius of your ad. This will draw the attention of interested parties to your ad who might not have considered including this region as well. With the SPECIAL promotion, your ad also receives the SPECIAL seal.

Finding your desired property quickly and easily:

    1. Open newhome.ch
    2. Select “Rent” or “Buy“.

    5. Now you can narrow down your search even more via Refine search” if you wish.
    6. Click on “Show search results” to see the search results.
    7. With a click on the object you can see more details about the respective advert.

We are pleased that you have found a suitable property. It’s best to contact the provider directly.
You can do this easily in the advertisement on the right-hand side using the pre-filled contact form (you can also change all the data if necessary) or, if activated by the provider, you can have the telephone number displayed at the end of the advertisement and contact the provider directly by telephone.
