Listings are the most important sections of your website, and most likely you will set up several of them. There are different listing features to choose from, each serving a purpose to help you build a finished site. You can create any number of listings on your website. In this section, we are going to see how to create a full detailed listing page.
Homey can be used to list single rooms or even a full property. It’s at your choice and based on your business model. For example, you own a bed & breakfast and you rent every single room in your place separately, so you will create a listing for each room. Or you want to rent your full house so you will create a single listing that includes information about the whole place.
