(PRWEB) July 27, 2009
Ragatz Associates Inc. has recently announced the creation of Resort and Hotel Showcase, an international website-based advertising service for the resort real estate industry, including existing resort developments, as well as vacant land appropriate for resort development, hotels and shared-ownership projects (fractional interests and resort timeshare).
"Showcase is the only known advertising service that totally concentrates on the resort real estate industry," says Ragatz. "The objective is to provide a central clearinghouse for sellers and buyers of resort-oriented property."
"The validity of Showcase is founded on the unique qualifications that Ragatz Associates has attained over the past 35 years," he continues. "The firm has worked on over 2,500 assignments in 48 states and over 70 countries. Also, I've spoken at over 350 conferences around the world. Such experience has generated contact with literally tens of thousands of professionals in the resort real estate industry, including existing and potential developers, investors, lenders, attorneys and many others."
Ragatz adds, "We promote Showcase not only to our own past contacts, but we also use Search Engine Optimization, advertising in appropriate trade publications and newsletters, networking at numerous industry meetings and conferences and the use of social media."
Showcase provides a focused website whereby sellers of resorts and hotels can advertise the availability of their properties to a worldwide audience of potential buyers. It is intended solely for entire properties, and not for individual homes, homesites, fractional interests, memberships, etc.
Until now, selling and buying of resort-oriented properties and hotels has been a very fragmented process, with no central depository. Demonstrating the availability of properties for sale has typically depended on local brokers, word-of-mouth, and inclusion with other forms of non-related real estate. Finding such properties has typically depended on time-consuming searches.
