itemoffered = Item( 1 )
description = Rancho Dos Pueblos - the "Royal Rancho" 2,175 magnificent acres on the Gaviota Coast featuring a private sandy beach, over 15 homes including the "Casa Grande," abundant agriculture, barns...

it's hard to see the code the way it is formatted. can you reformat it so we can read it better (each fact on a line); i also don't see how exactly you're incorporating this in the HTML

i reformatted it. I basically have the whole listing details wrapped in a div with the /offer schema with item properties wherever available below it. I added the page to the post and you can reference the source from there.

That url doesn't resolve to the thing I think you are trying to describe.

Thanks, in real estate, properties come and go... the same applies to any property on the site though.

The use of Microdata prescribed by Schema.org is not a Semantic Web Standard, but I am aware that some people have create a RDF representation of the Schema.org vocabularies that can be serialised as RDFa

Microdata can be treated as just another serialisation format (which is ATM the preference of schema.org). However, please remember schema.org's recent RDFa 1.1 Lite announcement (http://blog.schema.org/2011/11/using-rdfa-11-lite-with-schemaorg.html).

Great news - so someone needs to give @cobbsfriedman an example using RDFa lite / RDFa core

I am not sure but I think the "offer" can be nested in "residence". Name of the item (residence) is not defined (i.e "Residence X 9751 Calle Real").

I added the "name" itemprop but I dont think the offer can reside inside residence as its not supported. Reference the end of this thread where it talks about using offer as the main item... http://groups.google.com/group/schemaorg-discussion/browse_thread/thread/d6c0839d26401f62/28cad5c37f2fbae4?show_docid=28cad5c37f2fbae4&pli=1

Can you explain why you decided to make your properties an offer type at the highest level and made the address a residence type, as opposed to just making the whole listing a residence?

I noticed Trulia.com is doing it the same way, but instead of offer, they are using product.

It was noted in an existing thread by user "Guha" http://groups.google.com/group/schemaorg-discussion/browse_thread/thread/d6c0839d26401f62/28cad5c37f2fbae4?show_docid=28cad5c37f2fbae4&pli=1 that he advised to use offer as the highest level and that you could use a residence as the item offered (contrary to what it says on schema.org) - Trulia's use seems to be new as I have not noticed them using it previously and it looks incomplete after a quick scan of the code. You think they are correct in their use?
