Contact Requests

Target platforms will notify the contact of a listed property when a customer tries to get in touch (eg. through a form on the exposé). These notifications are sent by email to the property contact.

Automatically collecting contact requests

Some target platforms allow to define a separate email address to which a copy of the contact request is sent. EstateSync can use this address to automatically receive these notification emails, parse them for you and notify you about new contact requests through a webhook. The created structured object is just called "request" in EstateSync. You can activate this behaviour by setting the autoCollectRequests flag to true on targets of type immowelt, immobilienscout-24 and immobilienscout-24-sandbox.

Manually collecting contact requests

Not all targets support the autoCollectRequests flag. However, all target platforms usually notify the property contact or account owner of new contact requests by email. If you want EstateSync to parse these requests and notify you about new ones, you need to forward the notification emails to EstateSync.

More specifically, you need to forward these notifications to {emailId}@requests.estatesync.io where emailId is the identifier that is provided for every target (either in the response of a create or get target request). An example address to forward your request emails to might look like ebay-kleinanzeigen-ABCdef78956789abc123@requests.estatesync.io.

Ebay Kleinanzeigen

To forward only the notifications from Ebay Kleinanzeigen you can filter incoming emails based on the sender noreply-immobilien@ebay-kleinanzeigen.de.

ImmobilienScout24

Targets of type immobilienscout-24 and immobilienscout-24-sandbox also support the autoCollectRequests flag and do not require manual email forwarding. If you still choose to forward emails manually, you can simply filter incoming emails based on the sender anfrage@immobilienscout24.de.

Immowelt

Targets of type immowelt also support the autoCollectRequests flag and do not require manual email forwarding. If you still choose to forward emails manually, you can filter incoming emails based on the sender info@immowelt.de and the title containing Kontaktanfrage. Alternatively, you can filter on the CC address objektanfragen@immowelt.de.
