When you choose an option it will display its settings options.

The description provided in the settings is very straightforward, but let's take a look at each one so that you can decide what you would prefer to activate.

This option is the default one and it has no deeper settings. It is not going to require the user to register when browsing the listings. With this option activated the users still have the option to sign up if they want to save searches or "love" a property. They could also click the link "sign up" on top of the search box.

Soft: registration request after x views, but users can skip

The Soft option would ask the user to sign up after they've opened a certain amount of listings. You can set up this number at any quantity you want (after 3, 5, 10, etc listings). After the user has browsed that amount of listings, a popup would show up and ask them to register (you can set up the message). However, they have the option to skip this step and can keep browsing without providing their information. This is a kind way to try to gather their information. There are 2 options available:

1. Display Prompt Every X listing detail pages viewed.

2. Display Prompt Once When X listing detail pages viewed.

Hard: users most register after x views

This has the same functionality than the 'Soft' one, but it doesn't give the user the option to skip, so if they want to keep browsing the listings, they must sign up. This can be good as it would collect the contact info of a potential lead, but it can also be a bit risky as people could just leave the site. It's up to you setting this up and testing how it works for your goals.
