Global Prospects’ Propertyshowrooms.com, released a new section on its website, Development Showcase, which will be devoted purely to new developments, off-plan and key ready properties.
The new feature is primarily designed to increase potential clients’ interest in new developments (agents can use the system as well), via a more visible category of the company’s site other than the standard listings pages.
Whether clients are looking to buy new homes, prior-to-construction property or key-ready property, or even whole developments, Propertyshowrooms.com promises that its Development Showcase has all the information they will need to make an educated, informed decision.
The Development Showcase includes features, such as stock management, availability lists to approved agents, video resources, PDF’s, excel sheets, locations, local amenities, schools, transport link, direct contact details of the developer (as well as links to their other projects), specific unit information (floor plans, square meterage, individual photos) and much more.
The company boasts that its Development Showcase is the most exclusive in its category and it offers the best value on new homes and off-plan developments from around the world.
“The creation of the Development Showcase was driven by the need for developers to make their voice heard in a sea of low-value property listings. This gap in the market has finally been filled, giving developers extra exposure, not only having their own area of the site, but by also allowing them to upload much more information than an average property listing. They have the ability to upload not only images, but PDF’s, videos, excel spread-sheets and much more,” stated a Propertyshowrooms.com spokesperson.
What Propertyshowrooms.com found is, that one of the major problems developers face when launching a new product is that it can be very expensive to create a website and even more expensive to start generating leads and optimise the website.
In the case of Development Showcase, developers have a fully customisable (to match their colours and theme) site within a website that is already receiving huge amounts of traffic and is already optimised for search engines for a lot of the terms that the developer would like to rank for; meaning that Propertyshowrooms.com can start delivering leads from day one of the product going live.
Another problem facing developers launching a new project is that they do not have a content and client management system which is integrated to their website, so a lot of developers find themselves paying for several different solutions which can’t even operate together, but only realise this once it is too late.
Inside the Development Showcase, the developer can manage all of their clients and the content which is displayed, they can add sales information on the client, see overviews of reservations and the company promises that lots of other really slick features are coming soon.
One of the other major features of the Development Showcase is the fact that agents who use Propertyshowrooms.comcan sign up to become sales agents through the online Control Panel. Approved Agents can also see up to the minute availability on the development and can reserve units for up to 48 hours or until the developer approves the sale.
“We are offering a 50% discount to the first 20 purchasers and we have already had seven sign-ups to the service. We have had really positive feedback from the early purchasers, including Pierre and Vacances in France & Century 21 in Cyprus, who have said it is really easy to use and looks great on site. We see this becoming the number one resource for people searching for new developments worldwide as they have access to so much information and this will improve even further as we take more developers on-board.”
