Changes to price fields on realestate

05.12.2018

Two new fields have been introduced to the Ad model for realestate-homes, realestate-leisure-sale, realestate-plot, realestate-project-unit, realestate-development-single. The new fields are named total_price and sales_cost_sum.

Total_price is a field that will contain the total price, that is the sum of the price suggestion, debt, sales tax and other sales costs.

Sales_cost_sum is a field that will contain the sum of all known sales cost like sales tax, official registrion, printing of documents etc.

Be aware of the old field total. This field must not be confused with the new total_price field. Therefore the old total field has been deprecated and will be removed on all Ad models for realestate (except realestate-development). If needed you can replace 'total' with an other new field 'price_with_collective_debt'. 'price_with_collective_debt' contain the same information as the old total field, but you should of course favor the new total_price field.

For more information about this change see the new guidelines for marketing of residences from The Consumer Authority or this statement from Eiendom Norge

Image URL paths will not have this segment after 01.04.2017. A redirect to the new URL will be provided for some time.

To:

Working today, but not provided in any of FINNs APIs until 01.04.2017.
