A: Yes. We do require that all properties advertised on this site be located in a golf community, but they are not required to be located ON the course.

Q: What is meant by a "FEATURED AD"?

A: Featured ads are randomly featured on all GolfHomes.com web pages in the left hand column. (5) different properties are displayed at a time. Properties are also featured on the various state pages, randomly, (5) at a time. This gives your property optimum exposure. All paid ads with a good photo are displayed in the Featured Ad column. When you are on a particular golf course page, you will only see properties from that golf in the Featured column, as long as there are at least 5 properties currently being advertised on that golf course. If you are on a particular state page, you will only see properties advertised from that state. The display order and frequency is completely random. We do not control what displays in the Featured column, except for un-Featuring an ad, which we may do if there is no picture or the main picture is undesirable, such as a drawing or plat.

Q: Why can't I find "my" golf course here?

A: We have about 5000 golf courses in our database. We only show courses that currently have properties on them. If you get ready to advertise and do not see your course we can add it for you.

Back to Top

Q: How will I be contacted if someone is interested in my property?

A: In the Contact section of your ad there will be a link to an email contact form, so you can be directly contacted by potential buyers. Anytime your email address is displayed on a website, it is likely to be retrieved by companies that send out spam/junk emails. By using our "hidden email" technology, you can still be directly notified, without your email address being "exposed". Whether or not your phone number is displayed is entirely up to you. It is not a required field.

Back to Top

Q: What is the difference between a "site clicks" and "hits"?

A: A "site click" is increased when someone clicks on an external website/http. This is for people that have another website where they are advertising their property. Many real estate agents use GolfHomes.com to drive more visitors to their company's website. We have this count on the ads to show how many people are clicking thru to their website. A "hit" is increased by 1 when someone clicks on an ad to see the full details. Each view of the ad, in full detail, is counted only once every 24 hours.

Back to Top

Q:If I pay for an ad and that property sells, can I replace the ad with another property without paying again?

A: No. As stated in our AD GUIDELINES AND RULES each ad is for one specific property. Once it is sold, you must update your property to sold status. Any new properties can only be advertised by submitting a new ad.

Back to Top

A: Your ad will be located in your account on the "Active Ads" page upon successful completion of your credit card payment. If there was a error with your credit card transaction, your ad will be located on the "Inactive Ads" page. Click on the Activate/Pay/Renew link to complete payment and activate your ad.

PHOTO HELP

Q: I uploaded my photos. Why are they not displaying?

A: If you do not see photos on your ad, they did not successfully upload. You can try again and upload them one at a time or email them to photos(at)DreamHomeNetwork.com, replacing the (at) with @. You should receive an automated email response from the Photos Department, letting you know that your photos were emailed successfully. If you do not receive a response, we have not received your photos. Please call 888-933-5253, M-F, 7 am - 5 pm, for further assistance. If you experience problems uploading your photos, reduce the size of your full-size images before uploading.

Back to Top

Q: What if I do not have photos of my property?

A: When you submit an ad, you are not required to add photos. If you want to add or change them at any time, you can login to your account and upload, change, or delete photos.

Back to Top

Q: Is there a limit on the size of photo I can submit?

A: For fastest uploading times, we recommend resizing your pictures to less than 6 mb. Our system will automatically change the dimensions (height and width) of the photo, if necessary, so it will fit on a computer screen.

Back to Top

Q: What formats are allowed for photos?

A: Your photos must be in either .jpg or .gif format to load properly to your ad.

Back to Top

Q: What is the difference between .bmp, .jpg, and .gif photo formats?

A: A photo stored in bitmap format (.bmp) is not as internet efficient as a photo stored in .jpg or .gif format. For example, a 600k bitmap photo is only approx. 60k in .jpg format. If you have photo editing software that can convert a bitmap photo to a .jpg photo, then you will get the best photo type for use on the internet and this website.

Back to Top

Q: What if I don't know how to upload photos or have photo editing software?

A: If you do not know how to upload photos, you can email them to photos(at)DreamHomeNetwork.com, replacing the (at) with @. Please include your ad # with your request. You should receive an automated email response from the Photos Department, letting you know that your photos were emailed successfully. If you do not receive a response, we have not received your photos. Please call 888-933-5253, M-F, 7 am - 5 pm, for further assistance.

If you do not have electronic versions of your pictures (in .jpg or .gif formats), you can send them to us by regular mail to

7100 Calender
Arlington, TX 76001

and we will scan and add them for you, at no extra charge. If you want your photos returned to you, please include a self addressed stamped envelope. Label the pictures with your ad number and in what order you want them.
