How Adding Documents to Single Property Websites Improves Marketing and Communication

Businesses, regardless of what services or products they offer, are constantly being evaluated and compared on their level of customer service. As a successful Realtor and small business owner, how can you provide the best customer service?

Single Property Websites

AgencyLogic single property Websites can help by providing real estate agents with a way to share documents including inspections, contracts, marketing documentation and spreadsheets. Not only does this help answer questions but also provides more property related information than is available anywhere else on the Web, eases the sales process, saves time and therefore money for all parties and finally demonstrates technical ability and obviously outstanding customer service on the part of the real estate agent.

Agents can upload several file formats including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Zip and PDF (plus others). It is also possible to create a central document library thereby saving time whenever files need to be used across multiple single property Websites.

Documents on AgencyLogic single property Websites have three levels of security:

  • Open – Anyone who views the site can access the information
  • E-mail Address Required – An e-mail address must be entered before accessing documentation
  • E-mail Address and Password Required – An e-mail address must be entered and the Realtor must be contacted directly in order to obtain the password

Utilizing the third level of protection ensures any interested person interested contacts the Realtor directly, therefore generating solid leads and reliable contact information.

The question isn’t really why should you use a single property website, it’s how can you market effectively without one?

Cleveland, Las Vegas, Akron Post Highest Share of Seriously Underwater Properties; San Jose, San Francisco, Honolulu Post Highest Share of Equity Rich Properties

Irvine, CA – May 4, 2017 (PRNewswire) ATTOM Data Solutions, curator of the nation’s largest multi-sourced property database, today released its Q1 2017 U.S. Home Equity & Underwater Report, which shows that as of the end of the first quarter of 2017 there were nearly 5.5 million (5,497,771) U.S. properties seriously underwater — where the combined loan amount secured by the property was at least 25 percent higher than the property’s estimated market value — up from 5.4 million seriously underwater properties in Q4 2016 but still down by more than 1.2 million from the 6.7 million seriously underwater properties in Q1 2016.

The 5.5 million seriously underwater properties at the end of Q1 2017 represented 9.7 percent of all U.S. properties with a mortgage, up from 9.6 percent in Q4 2016 but down from 12.0 percent in Q1 2016.

The report is based on publicly recorded mortgage and deed of trust data collected and licensed by ATTOM Data Solutions nationwide along with an industry standard automated valuation model (AVM) updated monthly in the ATTOM Data Warehouse of more than 150 million U.S. properties.

“While negative equity continued to trend steadily downward in the first quarter, it remains stubbornly high in often-overlooked pockets of the housing market,” said Daren Blomquist, senior vice president at ATTOM Data Solutions. “For example, we continue to see one in five properties seriously underwater in several Rust Belt cities along with Las Vegas and central Florida. Additionally, close to one-third of homes valued below $100,000 are still seriously underwater.

Number of equity rich properties increases nearly 1.4 million from year ago
The report also found that as the end of Q1 2017, there were more than 13.7 million (13,718,473) equity rich U.S. properties — where the combined loan amount secured by the property is 50 percent or less than the estimated market value of the property — representing 24.3 percent of all U.S. properties with a mortgage. That was down from nearly 13.9 million equity rich properties representing 24.6 percent of all properties with a mortgage in Q4 2016, but it was up by nearly 1.4 million from a year ago, when there 12.4 million equity rich properties representing 22.0 percent of all properties with a mortgage as of the end of Q1 2016.

“While I wish the number of seriously underwater homeowners had fallen even more last quarter, the longer term data tells us that they are definitely trending lower,” said Matthew Gardner, chief economist with Windermere Real Estate, covering the Seattle market, which in the first quarter had more than 15,000 fewer seriously underwater properties and more than 57,000 additional equity rich properties compared to a year ago. “I’m expecting home prices in the Seattle area to perform well above average this year which should cause underwater homeowners to drop even further as we move through 2017. ”
