NBR Marketplace

What is NBR Marketplace?

NBR Marketplace represents a unique opportunity to place your premium residential listings in front of what is arguably one of New Zealand’s most qualified audiences. Best of all, there’s no cost to you, or your client, beyond taking out the special annual Premium subscription to The National Business Review.

Who can have an NBR Marketplace Publishing Subscription?

Any qualified Real Estate Agent and member of REINZ working for or as a contractor to any of the major Real Estate companies can purchase a special marketplace one year NBR subscription for $499. This will allow that person to publish listings under their own name on NBR Marketplace.

What will the layout of NBR Marketplace look like - will we be able to load logos, colours etc?

NBR Marketplace will be in the style of the standard NBR platform with additions unique to the Marketplace website. Each listing will have the following displayed:

  • Name of NBR Marketplace Subscription holder
  • Location – Region, District, Suburb
  • Link (URL) to Full listing page
  • Title Listing (limited to 40 characters)
  • Listing duration (Up to a maximum of 60 days although can be extended)
  • Price – Not visible on the NBR Marketplace website but used for search engine ordering
  • A Feature image (800kb or less)
  • Either an uploaded video or a link to Youtube or Vimeo Video or a collection of up to 10 high quality images (2000kb or less each)
  • Company Logo

Each NBR Marketplace Subscriber has the ability to choose their name at signup which will reflect in their listings and then once the subscription is set up, add a logo within size and shape restrictions to be advised.

Will it have a link to video?

Yes there is either a link to the video directly on Youtube or Vimeo or a video can be uploaded and hosted by NBR Marketplace The video should be a moving picture video. should have an accompanying music track. There will be no voice over or agents/presenters on camera accepted. NBR Marketplace reserves the right to reject any video material based on aesthetic or technical/quality grounds.

I don’t have a video for my listing. What else can I do?

If you don’t have a video you can upload up to 10 high quality images which will be rotated in a carousel type fashion. You can adjust the order in which they play by dragging and dropping them in the order you prefer. The images should be landscape and no greater than 2Mb each.

Will it have a link to the listing on the company website?

A link to the full listing on the company's website is presented to the viewer in order that they can navigate to the full listing information.

Will agents be able to get a data report on how many click, views or whatever occur for each listing?

Reporting can be managed by the agent’s or company’s own website. Simply put a measurement in place for redirects or clicks coming from the NBR Marketplace website. Data can be provided via each company’s own reporting systems. Therefore there is no need for NBR to provide analytics type data.

How will the actual listing process work?

A very simple management system has been designed by NBR. This management system can be accessed by the account holder and up to two administration users designated by the primary account holder. But any listing will always display the name of the primary account holder, so a subscription cannot be shared by multiple agents. Any of the primary user or administration users can add, publish, unpublish, update data or delete each of the agents listings. An indicative price is required to aid in the search order functionality but will never be shown on the NBR Marketplace website.

Technical Help & Support

I am having trouble logging in, what should I do?

Although NBR does remember you once you’ve logged in, for security reasons there could be a number of reasons why you may have been logged out including:

  • If it has been longer than 21 days since you visited NBR. You will automatically be logged out from all devices.
  • If you have a new device (mobile, laptop/desktop or tablet), are accessing NBR from a new browser (this includes Social Media apps), then you will need to log in again. Once you have done so, you will be remembered accessing from this new device or location and will not have to do so again.
  • You have not cleared your cache/cookies from your device/browser in a while. Usually, this is not a problem but when websites update remembering that old version can sometimes cause a problem. Clearing cookies and cache tells the browser to start over. This process differs from device to device and the browser you use.
