Buildout Marketing's updated Property Website Editor allows for more flexibility over the look and feel of property websites than ever before! You can manage the order in which content is displayed, display more in-depth property information, and more, all within an easy to use interface.

Upgrade to the new editor

Upgrading to the new Property Website Editor is quick and easy. As a Can Manage Company (MC) user, navigate to Company Settings and select Plugin Sets. From here, you'll have the option to upgrade to use the new editor, once you've reviewed our documentation!

Setting up your defaults

Users with Can Manage Company (MC) permissions in Buildout have access to select a Company Default template in Company Settings. This template will apply to all Property Websites created using the new Website Editor.


If no template is selected and the website editor is turned on for the company, it will default to the Modern template.

If your company has purchased additional plugin sets, you can set defaults for each one individually. These defaults can be found from within the Plugin Sets section of the Plugin Settings page.

The listing website editor allows any new property website to be modified to your liking.

Creating and editing a listing website

Access to the website editor can be found in the Website tab of your listing. Selecting the Edit Website button will allow you to modify your website. 

Repopulated with your data

Information on your property webpage is populated with data you entered in the Property Edit Form. The Property Edit Form is the backbone of Buildout and the source of record for all of your listing data that powers all of your marketing materials. We recommend ensuring all necessary fields are complete on the Property Edit Form so your messaging is consistent and flows seamlessly to your documents, emails, property website, and so much more.

Default Sections

We created default sections to get you restarted. Sections include Description, Highlights, and Maps. 

Editing and adding new content

You can add new content such as text, images (including icons), videos, buttons, tables, and additional spacing (if needed) to your website. You can also edit the text styles by double selecting the text to change the size, orientation, etc.

To add new content, follow these simple steps:

    1. Select the blue + icon above or below any section.
    2. You will be prompted to select the number of columns you would like for this section's layout.
    3. Select the "Add Content to Column" box, then click the component you would like to add to this column.


Arranging sections and content

You can rearrange and add/remove sections by using the up/down arrows or trash icon. You can also hide a specific section from the top level navigation by selecting the pencil icon and checking “Hide this section in navigation.”


Additional content can be added by selecting one of the connector points and selecting the type of content you would like to add
