RISMEDIA, September 23, 2010—Move, Inc., a leader in online real estate announced the acquisition of Threewide Corp., operator of ListHub, one of the nation’s largest online real estate listing syndicators and provider of advanced performance reporting solutions for brokers, real estate franchises, multiple listing services (MLSs) and real estate websites. ListHub products and services include syndication of 2.4 million property listings from 270+ MLSs and 38,000 brokers to more than 70 real estate marketing websites, as well as streamlined data management and reporting analysis used to monitor online listing performance.
With the addition of the ListHub brand, Move will deliver even greater value to MLSs, brokers and real estate websites as a single trusted source for national online listing syndication and reporting services empowering real estate professionals to reach more consumers while efficiently managing their online marketing strategy from one standardized dashboard.
“Online real estate today can be a fragmented experience for consumers and real estate professionals, and the related content is often inaccurate,” said Move, Inc. chief executive officer, Steve Berkowitz. “By acquiring Threewide and elevating the ListHub brand to a primary product offering at Move, we’ll combine Move’s core competencies of listing aggregation, relationship management and the delivery of effective marketing services with ListHub’s leadership in national syndication and market intelligence.
Through our combined strengths, we’ll successfully aggregate and connect vast amounts of data from a variety of sources, ensure the data remains accurate and fresh, and standardize the market reports real estate professionals rely on to guide their online marketing efforts and demonstrate value to clients. We believe this will soon result in a considerable improvement in the overall experience for both consumers and real estate professionals, regardless of where a property listing is displayed.”
Together, Move and ListHub will consult and work with key constituents in the real estate industry to demonstrate how its newly combined products and services can help MLSs, franchises, and brokers increase their online marketing effectiveness, safeguard the use of listing data, and reach more potential buyers and sellers efficiently through the national ListHub syndication network.
“We are very excited to become a part of the Move Network and we look forward to bringing even more value to our partners and customers going forward with the support of Move,” said ListHub President Luke Glass. “Our vision for the ListHub product remains to provide real estate brokers and agents with a single, neutral platform that gives them control and transparency in the online marketing of their listings. ListHub is committed to growing the value of the ListHub network, continuing to bring together content providers and publishers, while supporting their ability to engage with one another with ease and confidence.”
With this acquisition, Threewide becomes a wholly-owned subsidiary of Move Sales, Inc., a subsidiary of Move, Inc., and ListHub will join Move’s other industry-leading business-to-business brand solutions used by real estate professionals to market client listings and their brands to buyers and sellers. ListHub products, services and the management team of professionals will remain with the ListHub brand, now backed by Move.
