Starting a Subdivision Website

By
Real Estate Agent with One Realty Group Edge - The Sanders Team 279103

I have created a website for my subdivision, in an effort to get more people involved in our community and attending our annual homeowner's assoication meeting so that we at least have enough people attending the meetings to be able to vote on things.  I have been obtaining owner's e-mail addresses by just getting out and knocking on doors and introducing myself, letting them know that I am starting a website and then I ask for their e-mail address to send the link to.  I guess this is the best way of gathering e-mail addresses since I get to meet my neighbors and introduce myself to them at the same time.

But what I am wondering, Is there any other Realtors out there that have also done this, and how did you go about it, were you sucessful at bringing the community together and getting more involvement from it? And do you have any tips or helpful ideas?

In case anyone is wondering, there are places out there on the web where you can create a community website for free. I am not all that advanced in computer technology to be able to create a website from nothing! The name of the place online is razorball.net Click on this link to see some of the community websites: http://kennesboroughsquare.thesubdivision.com/kennesborough/thesubdivision.jsp

The website I created is for the subdivision homeowner's, and is not an official subdivision HomeOwner's Association or HOA site, in fact it has nothing to do with the HOA, it is more a online gathering place for the HomeOwners of the subdivision. However, I have posted the HOA documents for the convenience of having them available. 

If anyone has any more ideas, comments, or feedback it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for reading my blog!

good idea- my last neighborhood I lived in had a "inter-neighborhood " email and site to post stuff- yard sales, babysitter list, referrals for  yard service- handyman----I actually miss it!

Thats an awesome idea.  I think the easiest website for you to start would be on something like myspace.  Create blogs that include anything important and people can post comments about the things important to them.  You can also send out bulletins to anyone that has linked to it.
