How to Create Free Single Property Site and Virtual Tour

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Home87

 

Technology moves very fast, yet it is quite stagnant in the context of real estate services. The statement is partially true, technology moves very fast…elsewhere, just not in our industry. We are still stuck with clumsy user interfaces of yesteryear. Whatever happened to web 2.0? What also perplexes us is when we compare the price of a simple single property site, virtual tour, transaction management software to Google Docs, Facebook or DropBox. One stands out as the most expensive, can you guess which?

By the tone of the opening paragraph, you probably guessed correctly, it is the real estate related services.  We plan to change that fact with the release of our site, Home87.com. To achieve our goal, we focus on our strength by doing what we do best, write great software. Our marketing strategy revolves around introducing the features and services that our users want. Think of it as relationship building by ear and not by mouth.

With Home87.com you get unlimited property sites and virtual tours for 0$. Nope this is not a special promotion or a 6 months deal. It's the forever kind of deal, like getting married. There is no catch, no contracts, no set ups, no credit card. No there is no minimum or maximum use required. It's all about great software.

"What features does our property site and virtual tour have?" you ask? 

Walkscore, Google Maps, SEO, unlimited pictures? Yes.

MLS compliant, Craigslist HTML, document upload, printable flyers? Yes.

Click2Call and LiveChat as widgets, social sharing? Yes, yes and many more yeses.

No fees or membership to worry about. You can send us a beer though, not required, but appreciated. We are positive that you will be impressed with the value we provide. If you do not like what we have to offer, many of our competitors are more than happy to have your support. In short, you cannot beat our price or quality.

To ensure high quality, this is a closed invite-only beta release and we will be rolling out the service incrementally. Registration will be processed with a valid invitation key only. The first 100 agents that use the code “ActiveRain” at www.home87.com will be able to register and use the service immediately. As of today invitation keys are limited, but in the coming weeks, we will begin allowing our users to start sending invitation to their colleagues as well.

Just signed up from Canada, noticed that there are no dropdown categories for us up here in the North.  Is this something that will be coming in the post Beta?
