RISMEDIA, December 2, 2009—Online home auction company RealtyBid.com is offering a holiday treat to real estate agents across the country. Throughout the month of December, RealtyBid.com has discounted its standard listing fee of $150 to $25 for real estate agents looking to market one or more of their property listings through a RealtyBid.com online auction in order to accelerate the property’s sale.
Additionally, the online real estate auction company has discounted its standard sales fee (Buyer Fee) from 1% to a flat fee of $500, further enticing potential buyers to bid on listed properties.
In order to take advantage of this holiday offer, real estate agents should use the special promotional code YE2009 when uploading a property to the RealtyBid.com website.
RealtyBid.com Executive Vice President Mike Keracher said real estate professionals around the country are beginning to understand the value of auction marketing through RealtyBid.com. “As the acceptance of real estate auctions has continued to grow and the use of the Internet has become integral to our lives, more and more real estate professionals have added Internet auction marketing to their arsenal of tools.”
Keracher listed five ways auction marketing through RealtyBid.com can help accelerate the sale of a slow moving listing for an agent: Keeps control in the hands of the agent and seller; focuses attention on the listed property and can help differentiate a property from others in the area; forces potential buyers off the fence; its a great tool for aged listings prior to price reductions as well as motivation for sellers who have price flexibility.
