Sure, all of those real estate sites can seem like great places to get leads. But, between Zillow, Trulia, Redfin, and any others that pop-up, you can go broke just chasing after your own leads.
That's why as successful realtors and brokers, we knew that there had to be another way to grow our business and started using the USA Homebids bidding platform.
Why Should I Use USA Homebids?
The fact is, the real estate industry is changing. Buyers and sellers want to be more aware of what's going on and have more control over the process. We are seeing more sellers who are choosing to sell their homes on their own, without a realtor. And, they're not the only ones. The National Association of Realtors was just hit with another antitrust lawsuit over commissions and MLS rules. People want more transparency and it's coming. The proposed settlement aims to bring more transparency and competition to the industry.
We shouldn't be surprised. Technology touches every aspect of the real estate industry today. Buyers can see a birds-eye view of a neighborhood 2,000 miles away through drone footage. You can buy a house online without ever taking out a pen to sign a contract. Searching for new listings is as simple as downloading an app, choosing your location, and awaiting notifications with options.
With technology continuing to transform every area of our lives, it is time to use technology to bring transparency to the real estate market, too.
What is USA Homebids?
An advanced bidding platform, USA Homebids offers complete transparency to buyers and sellers as they can see all of the bids made on a property in real time.
Then, the seller ultimately decides which bid to choose - or none at all.
For us, and many of the realtors who are now using USA Homebids, we are seeing properties sell faster, for over ask, with complete transparency.
We could honestly talk all day about how much we love having this tool to offer our clients and a new way to get leads, but we decided to make this video for you instead.
