A new site to help sell your listings!

By
Real Estate Agent with Brooks Prime Properties

Check out this brand new site, to list your waterfront/view properties. I do not believe I have seen a better site out there. It is called Buywaterfronts.com. It is for any property located near the water. It is not just for the lake, ocean or river but all of them. Right now they are offering Free listings!

Here is an exert from an email I received from them.

I enjoyed visiting with you today, and thank you for your time. I wanted to introduce our new website http://buywaterfronts.com. We are offering a free trial to you to market your listings on our site. Any property near the water is qualified.
 
This site is for agents and brokers only, with no FSBO's. Any seller wishing to advertise is directed to our "Locate an Agent" tool right on the site. NO stirring or muddying the waters here.
 
We offer:
Up to 15 photos per property
A profile page for every agent or agency
Property Virtual Tours
Upload your photo and company logo
Direct link to your website
Email Leads sent directly to you
A link to your blog if you have one
And more features coming...
We are licensed agents just like you who list and sell property by the waterfront. We have worked hard to make this site have the tools to help you succeed.
 
Please check out our free trial and enter the codeword promo.

Do they offer any SEO?  How are they driving traffic to the site?  How much does it cost?

Right now they are emailing different realtors around the country. Google is picking them up every time a listing is placed on the site. It is free right now for up to ten listings for six months. Just go to the link above for the free promo.

Hi Robert- Great post! 10 free lisings for 6 months is sweet. We have already used the site for our Lake Livingston listings and Google has placed us at the top of page 2 after only a week or so. Wait til it grows...-Scott

I am sure they will start pouring in soon, of course we probably need to get others to join. So the site will take off.

Seems like a decent site. But you should really try out http://www.BeatYouThere.com  

This real estate search engine is also a social network and has a broader reach than trulia, zillow, realtor.com.  We are still working on having the deepest amount of listings, but we have over 2 million right now, and growing each day. 

Just mentioned in Barrons Newspaper as THE place to start your real estate search.

That looks like A great site, but Buywaterfronts is more of a niche marketing web site solely for those who list around the water.

Looks like a great site for waterfront homes.  It will be interesting to see what they charge after the promo period ends.

Nancy- I went to their site and found what they will be charging. You simply move your pointer over where it says Broker/Agents, then go to Agent/Registration Packages. Then at the bottom of the page there are two choices with many plans.

The first choice is Subscribe Today! or if you like Pay-Per-Listing Packages. Take a look and see what you think. I believe they are reasonable priced.
