ListedBy, a free online real estate marketplace and social network with integrated live bidding auction and ‘Submit Offer’ functionality today announced an upgrade to LB Social™, the site’s social networking and business building module. The upgrade allows ListedBy.com members to optimize their real estate marketing and efficiency by enabling them to seamlessly invite contacts to join their ListedBy network from their Windows Outlook, Hotmail, MSN, AOL and Plaxo accounts, in addition to Yahoo! Mail and Gmail.
“We continue to invest in technologies that allow our members to close real estate deals faster and more efficiently, which is what ListedBy is all about,” said Stephan Piscano, ListedBy’s founder and chief executive officer.
LB Social™ is a key module within the ListedBy.com free environment. It allows real estate professionals and consumers to easily engage with contacts, peers and prospects through a single dashboard. ListedBy members use LB Social™ to read, post and discuss industry topics, start discussion groups in the Forum, market and easily share new listings or listing updates with potential buyers or friends, or upload and distribute newsletters and other business communication to their network on ListedBy.
Added Piscano: “To quickly communicate, or send messages, updates and market new listings to prospects and friends through ListedBy is yet another way that successful real estate professionals can leverage the site to manage more of their business every day using a single tool, and for free.”
ListedBy enables real estate buyers and sellers to engage directly with each other, transmit and negotiate offers with a click of the mouse to significantly accelerate negotiations and deal making.
ListedBy also removes the barrier to entry to the real estate auctions market, by eliminating all fees, complex registration and participation requirements typically associated with auction sites, including all buyer premiums.
