What is Property Base?
The system has 2 key functions
to bring high value enquires directly to the selling agent… Property Base is a website containing information on properties for sale in the Canary Isles. The information is gathered from multiple Estate Agents across the region and offers flexible search facilities for potential property buyers. Websites that offer collated property information from multiple Agents are often called property portals.
to save time & money in the promotion of your property database… Property Base also acts as a Master Portal – allowing Agents to upload their property information to multiple portals in one simple cost-effective operation.
What are the features of Property Base - the Website.
Developed and managed by Sorted Sites, the leader in Estate Agent websites in the Canary Isles, Property Base will achieve excellent search engine positioning thus ensuring that traffic to the site is maximised and will produce high quality enquiries.
Serving only the Canary Isles, the website offers the widest range of suitable properties in clearly defined geographic areas.
Why is search engine ranking so important and how is it maximised?
Every Estate Agent in the Canary Isles knows that selling to an international market brings particular challenges. Often clients may not have knowledge of the area and can be making their enquiries from overseas. A professional website negates these issues with excellent local information and good search facilities for properties by type, value and area.
However, a great website will only produce excellent enquiries if it attracts the right kind of client and in significant numbers.
Sorted Sites employ many techniques to ensure that the websites they create and manage for their many Estate Agent clients achieve very high positions in search engines like Google and Yahoo. This will include the most obvious basic steps like search engine optimization, submission to directories and site mapping. However, search engine ranking is a based on constantly changing algorithms and now place additional important emphasis on social networking, blog posts and authoritative external links.
Achieving exceptional search engine ranking is our expertise, and we are employing every technique, shortcut and trick to ensure Property Base is the leading property portal for the Canary Isles.
What information can I display on the Property Base portal?
Agents can load up to 250 properties with images, descriptions, values and key information for search filters including bedrooms, property type and geographic location.
When a potential buyer searches the Property Base data they are provided with a summary listing including the value, a photo and brief description. Unlike other portals, selecting this property takes the client straight to your website displaying the detailed information for the property. We are happy to pass potential clients to you as quickly and simply as possible.
All Agents will also have a single page company profile within Property Base with a direct link to their website.
It is our job to bring the highest number of potential clients to your website quickly and simply. We are not a website that sells property, but instead a collection of signposts to the experts – you, the local Agents.
What else will the Property Base portal offer?
We already produce and manage some excellent blog sites that are relevant to anyone looking to move to the Canary Isles or buy property here.
The importance of blog editorial to search engines positioning means that these sites will provide automatic feed of interesting (and search indexed) articles on local events, recreation and lifestyle, financial planning, interior design etc.
What is the second key feature – the Master Portal?
Any Agent uploading property information to a portal will know that it can be a laborious and tedious task.
This commitment of your valuable time can mean that the data on the portal is not as “up-to-date” as you would wish or that you are concerned about the amount of time spent on managing portal data.
Property Base Master Portal offers an automatic, simple and cost effective way to maintain all your property information on every portal.
The smart-update software created by our technical team administers your chosen portals effortlessly – leaving you to manage the client not the data.
Automatic updates process the information for each portal, cleverly recognising the varying data that each require and their disparate updating techniques and scheduling.
If you use property portals at present, then your portal account and charging will continue with no change – we just manage all your updates.
For agents who want to begin using a portal, then we will help you every step of the way in creating your accounts and providing the portal owner with your invoicing & charging information.

New portals to be added include –
