Insertion of listings

  • Will newhome.ch create my listing for me?
    We are categorically unable to perform editorial tasks such as the creation of listings or the editing of photos. Doing so would make it impossible for us to offer newhome.ch as a free service.
  • Why can I see the words «under review» or «inactive» in my property listings?

    When you submit a listing, it is automatically placed «under review». This means that its integrity and validity will be checked within one working day by your selected cantonal bank.

    • If the listing fails to meet the quality requirements of newhome.ch, it will be rejected. Its status will then be changed to «rejected».
    • If everything is in order, the cantonal bank will approve your listing. Your property will then appear as "active" in your portfolio.
    • After the standard publication period of 60 days, your listing will be deactivated. It will then appear as "inactive".
  • How can I reactivate a submitted listing which has an ;«inactive» status?
    To reactivate your listing, select the menu item "Manage" by first selecting "My newhome" and then the heading Listings. Click the button "More functions" in the respective listing's management area. In the pop-up menu, click on «Manage» and then «Activate» Alternatively, you can click on the «Publish listing» button when editing your listing.
  • How can I delete a submitted listing on newhome.ch?
    To delete your listing, select the menu item "Manage" by first selecting "My newhome" and then the heading Listings. Click the corresponding icon in the respective listing's management area null "Delete"
  • How can I edit a submitted listing on newhome.ch?

  • I have submitted a listing. How long will it take to become active on the site?
    It usually takes one working day to review and approve listings. Listings are not reviewed/approved on weekends or public holidays.
  • I am unable to upload pictures. What am I doing wrong?

    Problems uploading pictures typically occur for the following reasons:

    • The image is too big (max. file size: 4MB) – newhome.ch automatically cancels uploads that are taking too long; reduce the size of your pictures to the minimum necessary by using a compression program (e.g. Photo Impact, Image Ready).
    • Thefile path to your saved picture is too long – newhome.ch occasionally experiences problems with excessively long file paths. In this case, copy your image to a higher level of your directory structure or to a data carrier before uploading. Example:
      instead of:C:\data\properties\appenzell\highstreet\floor1\images\bathroom.jpg
      new path: C:\images\bathroom.jpg or A:\bathroom.jpg
    • Always select your pictures by using the "Browse" button instead of entering the file path manually, as this can often result in errors.
    • newhome.ch can only accept images in *.jpg, *.gif or *.png format.

    If you are still experiencing problems, please send an email containing the corresponding error message to info@newhome.ch

  • The PDF function is not displayed. How should I proceed?

    2. On the left, click on "Internet"
    3. On the left under Web browser – Options, activate the field «Display PDF in browser»
