RISMEDIA, May 22, 2009-RE/MAX International, Inc., announced a new, strategic partnership with online technology provider InvestorLoft.com. InvestorLoft.com allows investors to value residential real estate and make investment decisions that could help stabilize local real estate markets. RE/MAX is the first real estate network in the U.S. to partner with InvestorLoft.com.
Real estate experts say investors will play a key role in the housing recovery. According to a National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) study, real estate investors account for 22% of real estate transactions today and 75% of their purchases are single family homes, condominiums and townhomes.
“We chose InvestorLoft as a RE/MAX Technology Partner because they have sophisticated technology that gives consumers a chance to make viable investment decisions,” said Kristi Graning, senior vice president, Information Technology and eBusiness for RE/MAX International. “With InvestorLoft.com, RE/MAX agents can now offer their clients a valuable resource that will not merely affect just one investor’s purchasing decision, but could impact local real estate markets across the country. That’s important to our associates who understand this market and have more real estate experience than other real estate agents.”
