Get more REOs

A single property website can generate a lot of traffic and give your REO listings more exposure than traditional methods of marketing real estate. In fact, it will continue to provide great value even if the property sells in just a few days: don’t forget that your sign rider showcasing the property – and you- will hang from the “for sale” sign until the property closes escrow.

I’m sure I don’t need to tell you that REOs are very hot at the moment. As savvy buyers and investors are actively looking for great real estate deals, bank owned properties are practically flying off the shelf with multiple offers.

If you’re an agent trying to break into the lucrative REO market, or even if you are already selling REO properties, building a single property website to showcase each distressed home for sale is a great way to market the property.

Better yet, showcasing each foreclosure property with a unique website enables you to market YOURSELF as a savvy agent who knows how to use the power of the Internet to market properties online. This attracts bank asset managers, because it tells them that you are an Internet savvy real estate professional, who knows how to market real estate using the latest tools.

Even after close of escrow, the single property website will prove useful and attract even more traffic, since the new buyer will send their family and friends to your property website to view their new home.

Why only 12 seconds?
Because anything longer is boring.

Their patent pending Electro-Tear-Duct Prongers have determined that exactly 12 seconds of video is the ideal amount of time to keep anything interesting. Are you buying this? I am ;)
