Miami, FL, February 04, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Condo.com, the World’s Largest Condo Marketplace, announced today that it has launched a new product, “Local Expert” geared towards brokers and agents. The product allows real estate professionals and others to purchase Zip Codes, Cities, Metro-Areas, Neighborhoods and Countries so that their ads are prominently displayed in all search results for the selected area of expertise.
The current climate in the real estate market, coupled with the increased usage of the Internet to search for real estate, has forced brokers and agents to find innovative ways to market their services. The Local Expert product provides real estate professionals with a cost-effective and result-driven solution for marketing themselves to buyers who conduct over 500,000 condo searches each month on Condo.com.
“There is a large audience of real estate professionals that do not have listings and who exclusively serve buyers. We developed the Local Expert product so that buyer’s agents can easily advertise their expertise to our rapidly growing local and global audience” stated Richard Swerdlow, founder and CEO of Condo.com. “Despite the current real estate market, we are seeing a growing number of buyers from around the world looking for bargains and searching for condo properties, even in the troubled markets. Now is the time for agents to promote their expertise and demonstrate a commitment to the market with smart advertising” added Swerdlow.
The Local Expert is the latest addition to a suite of self-service advertising products on the site, including the ability to self-list one or more condos for sale or rent and the Power Seller Program which enables Brokers and Agents to list unlimited condo listings for a low monthly fee.
Condo.com (www.condo.com) is the world’s largest condominium marketplace with inventory of over 450,000 listings valued in excess of $100 billion. Condo.com lists condos in the United States and 70+ countries around the world and cost-effectively delivers exposure to developers, brokers and for-sale-by-owners through the seamless distribution of its listings to a global network of real estate websites visited by over 15 million viewers per month. Buyers can search the superset of all “for sale” and “for rent” condo listings based on a variety of search criteria, including whether the property is a “bargain” based on the price per square foot compared to other listings within the same building, city, zip code or State. Condo.com is a privately held company headquartered in Miami, Florida. For more information, visit www.condo.com.
