What is an Area Page?

Area Page: A page dedicated to a specific geographical location. 

Build a page for any cities or counties within your market, or develop pages for smaller areas such as a specific neighborhood, or community.

Add custom content to inform your leads about the market, and share listings available in this area to entice potential leads to sign up for an account on your website.
