HousingList.com, created by Vertical Brands Media, Inc., has gone live as the first inductee in Onboard Informatics’ “Startup Wars” program.
HousingList.com has nearly one million non-traditional real estate listings from coast to coast including lease option to buy, foreclosure and FSBO properties. With the addition of Onboard Informatics’ content, users can now understand the surrounding area and its nearby points of interest.
In addition to access to listings, visitors to HousingList.com receive advice and information on deciding if the rent-to-own or lease-option-to-buy process is right for them.
“In a world where buyers are more likely to sacrifice on the characteristics of the home for an area that matches their needs, you need to paint a complete picture of what it will be like to live in that new home,” says Marc Siden, Onboard Informatics CEO. “We are happy to work with a partner like HousingList that recognizes the needs of their members.”
The Startup Wars program, announced in August, provides development discounts to budding startups with the same content utilized by national publishers and 8 of the top 10 real estate brokerages. Two other startups have been accepted into the program and will be launching in the coming months.
“We know firsthand the challenges a startup faces in its inception and we are excited to find new ways to help the new crop of visionaries improve the real estate transaction,” Siden says in an August statement.
