So how can the Internet help the property market become collaborative?
A study from Credit Foncier last month said 95% of buyers used the Internet for their house search. Here are three further ways in which the Internet makes incredible sense to the property buyers and owners:
1. Use a collaborative Property Finder
2. Rent your house for summer lets
3. Share the price of properties sold
1. USE A COLLABORATIVE PROPERTY FINDER
To deal with dispersion of offers, 1200 estate agents in the just the Var, selling over 50000 properties, the first improvement has been the arrival of real estate portals. But the next issue has been the huge number of property portals that are available and we looked at 200 such portals.
The best solution is to delegate the search to a “collaborative” property finder, who can act as your single point of contact, search the whole market and share freely with you the information he has at his disposal. Through our review of property sites and search services, this is what we do at SmartFinder.
How can a property finder do a better job at searching a house than a buyer who knows what he wants ?
