Birmingham, Ala.; Bellevue, Wash. (PRWEB) June 10, 2008
The Land Report, the magazine of the American Landowner, and SecondSpace, Inc., the leading online marketplace exclusively focused on second homes and recreational retreats, today announced the public launch of a co-branded Web site featuring over 300,000 farms, ranches, acreages, homesites, country homes and rural retreats for sale in the U.S. and over 50 other countries. The site integrates one of SecondSpace's flagship properties, LandWatch.com, with the rich content library of LandReport.com--including The 100 Top Landowners in America--creating a seamless online experience for people searching for their piece of the Great American Outdoors.
"With a circulation made up of the country's top landowners and prospective buyers, The Land Report and LandReport.com reach a highly motivated and affluent customer base," said Eddie Lee Rider, publisher of The Land Report. "Now, land sales specialists, farm and ranch brokers, institutional landowners and developers can reach this targeted audience through our magazine as well as through the co-branded Web site we recently launched with LandWatch.com."
The new site--now available at LandReport.LandWatch.com--is powered by SecondSpace's highly scalable semantic Web platform and an intelligent listings switch which sorts over 1.5 million property listings to determine those that uniquely match the "second home" lifestyle. SecondSpace "tilts" its deep data base of lifestyle properties to surface those that are contextually relevant to a partner's readers and web audience--in this case "Land for Sale"--while enabling users to search and discover a broad range of rural properties, including farms, ranches, acreages, homesites and country homes across 50 countries.
"Since launching less than two years ago, The Land Report has already become an authoritative resource for people that have a passion for the land," said Rob Ledebur, manager of strategic partnerships for SecondSpace. "Now, by integrating LandWatch.com into the LandReport.com Web site, we are enabling readers to dream about, find and discover their perfect recreational retreat--all from a single lifestyle-oriented Web portal."
Ranch brokers, land specialists, major landowners and developers who wish to feature their properties on the new LandReport.com "Land for Sale" Web site can contact Sales@LandWatch.com for details and pricing information.
