RISMEDIA, June 23, 2009-RealtyBid.com and ValCom, Inc., have teamed up to give away a house every month through their new promotion, “The House Game®.” According to the two companies, anyone participating in “The House Game” online trivia game on RealtyBid.com will be eligible to win the selected property of the month. The first home that will be given away by ValCom and RealtyBid.com is a two-bedroom home located in sunny Florida.
“The House Game” is part of the newly-formed joint venture partnership between RealtyBid.com, one of the nation’s leaders in online home auctions, and ValCom, Inc., a leader in media technology, facilities and production content for television programming and related services. Through this partnership, ValCom will be handling the ongoing production, promotion, and implementation of distressed real estate inventory to be sold via RealtyBid.com’s online auction platform.
RealtyBid.com CEO/President Tony Isbell said his team is thrilled to be working with ValCom to give away a home within a different state each month. “This promotion-giving away homes-is really in the true spirit of the RealtyBid.com/ValCom partnership,” he said.
“Each month through RealtyBid.com, ValCom will be auctioning dozens of post-foreclosure homes at unbelievable prices to home buyers and investors around the country. These will be absolute, no-reserve auctions; all properties with bids will be sold. ‘The House Game’ is really symbolic of what we will be doing each month with ValCom-giving away houses!”
Isbell emphasized that anyone is able to play “The House Game” and can become eligible to win a house by answering a few online trivia questions. Entrants do not have to answer the questions correctly in order to be eligible or win. ‘”Click A Mouse, Win A House” is our slogan for this promotion, and it really is that easy,” he said.
According to Vince Vellardita, president & CEO of ValCom, “The House Game” will be supported by a national television and print media ad campaign. “Having been involved with thousands of episodes of television and having produced and promoted over 100 events from presidential campaigns to Super Bowl to Broadway, I am excited to be part of a movement that can help make a difference. With the power of television, promotion and the Internet, I truly believe we will make a difference in providing some extraordinary values to the home buying public, not to mention the lucky monthly winner who will win a home for free!” Vellardita said.
The first seven-day auction of post-foreclosure, no-reserve properties from ValCom and RealtyBid.com will begin Saturday, June 20 at 8 a.m. Eastern/7 a.m. Central and run until Saturday, June 27 at 8 p.m. Eastern / 7 p.m. Central and will include dozens of drastically reduced properties.
