If you are a real estate agent or broker, we want to make your job easier for you. With LotNetwork.com's free online tool created solely for real estate agents and brokers, you can "Auto-Upgrade" your listings to automatically create Featured and Premium listings on LotNetwork...moving your listings to the top of searches and giving your listings the significant exposure and other marketing benefits that come with upgraded listings.
LotNetwork.com is a Channel Partner with ListHub, one of the largest MLS service platforms in the country. ListHub has agreements with most of the major MLS systems across the nation, which is why it's possible that your lot and land listings are on LotNetwork.com as "Basic" Listings. But you'll need more than just a Basic Listing to most effectively reach the large audience of lot and land buyers on LotNetwork.com.
There are many marketing benefits that come with Featured and Premium Listings, giving you higher exposure to our targeted audience of lot and land buyers. Auto-Upgrade makes it easier for you to create Featured and Premium Listings, so you can sell faster.
- The Auto-Upgrade process automatically uses your existing property information you uploaded to your MLS (including all your listing photos) to create your new Featured and Premium listings on LotNetwork, saving you tons of time and effort.
- If you make changes to your price, status and other property information in MLS, your changes automatically will be made in your Featured and Premium listings that were created using the Auto-Upgrade tool.
- Unlike your "Basic" syndicated listings on LotNetwork that do not receive search priority and are very limited, when you upgrade to a Featured or Premium Listing on LotNetwork.com your property listing will be seen at the top of search results, can include an unlimited number of photos, is displayed in our custom land-focused listing template and even can have an enhanced Agent profile with your headshot and firm logo, plus all the other marketing benefits and enhancements that come with upgrading to Featured and Premium listings.
- It's fast, easy and free to use the Auto-Upgrade Tool to create your new Featured and Premium Listings.

It's so easy...Here's how Auto-Upgrade works.
To begin using the Auto-Upgrade feature you first will need to register and sign up for a listing plan (or Log In if you've already done that). Then follow these 3 easy steps:
Step 1:Search for your listings on LotNetwork.com and open each listing that you wish to Auto-Upgrade one at a time. Simply enter appropriate property information (like zip code and price range) and run your search, and if your listing is in our database it will be returned in the search results. Click on your first listing in the search results to open it.
And remember, the Basic/MLS listings you are seeing will only have 1 photo and minimal listing info compared to the expanded benefits and information after you finish upgrading to Premium and Featured listings.TIP: Just look down the right side of the search results for your firm's name to find your listing on the page. If a large number of listings are returned, then add additional search criteria to narrow your results.
Step 2:Click the orange "Upgrade Listing" button above the map in your Basic/MLS listing (see image below) and an Auto-Upgrade pop up appears.Note that you must be logged in to use the Auto-Upgrade tool. If you already have registered and signed up for a listing plan, you can log in and start using Auto-Upgrade right away (if you need to sign up, click here to choose a plan and start the process).
[You will not see this orange Upgrade Listing button if the Basic Listing already has been used to create a new listing through Auto-Upgrade.]
Step 3:In the Auto-Upgrade pop up: (1) check the box to verify it is your listing and then (2) click the blue (Featured) or green (Premium) button to select the type of listing plan you already purchased. In other words, did you sign up to post this as a Featured or Premium Listing? See sample Auto-Upgrade pop up shown below.If you choose a listing type (Featured or Premium) that is not already in your account (or that is not available because it is being used by another Active listing), then you'll see a message in the pop up. Either choose another listing type or, if you need to add a new plan, simply close the pop up, go to the listing plans page or to the My Account page in My LotNetwork to add a new listing plan and then return to your listing to use the Auto-Upgrade feature.
Like magic, your listing information is automatically imported for you (including all your photos) and the listing is posted as Active -- buyers now are seeing your Featured or Premium Listing for that property near the top of search results and through our other exclusive marketing programs for your upgraded listing.
After you click to upgrade from the pop up, LotNetwork immediately puts you into the Edit Listing mode for that listing so you can review the listing's information and make any changes you'd like. To be thorough, we suggest that you (a) confirm the property is mapped properly (use our custom Mapping Tool (on the first page of the Edit Listing form) if you need to adjust the map) and (b) add any other information that you need to include via our land-focused listing template (like a more descriptive listing "Title", the bullet-point "Highlights", etc.). Save any changes (at the top of the page), and then you are all set.
Then just do this process again to Auto-Upgrade any other listings that you wish to add as Premium and Featured listings on LotNetwork.com.
At any time you can review all your new listings in the My Listings area under the My LotNetwork drop down at the top right (when you are logged in). Click on the listing's image on your My Listings page to be redirected to your full listing page for that property. Or search for your listing and click to open it from your search results (and as a Featured or Premium Listing it now can be seen near the top of the search results).
A recent enhancement to the Auto-Upgrade tool links the changes you make to your original listing in MLS to your Featured or Premium listing that was created through the Auto-Upgrade process. That means that when you later make changes to critical property data like price, status, acreage, address and description, those updates automatically are passed through to your upgraded Featured and Premium listing on LotNetwork. Even with this connection, you still can customize and save different information in your upgraded Featured and Premium Listings on LotNetwork without affecting your related MLS listing's information.
