New Free Resource Helps Builders Direct Prospective Buyers to New Housing Developments

Share Article

Builders of new housing developments face an up-hill battle when it comes to driving potential customers to their sites. Why? Because it can take four years or more before newly-minted streets show up on any online map or GPS system. That means prospective buyers can't find the development site or the sales office. Putmeonthemap.com solves that problem, and it's absolutely free.

You simply upload your final site plan in DXF or DWG format, and putmeonthemap does the rest. They even helped me build an interactive map on my website to give prospective buyers door-to-door directions. That helped a lot. A number of my home buyers told me they wouldn't have found the development without it. And, it didn't cost me a penny.

As if the housing market hasn't been tough enough in the last few years, building developers confront a particularly daunting challenge because their developments don't appear on any maps--and won't for several years.

Generic directions and static maps on a builder's website and ads necessarily lack detail. Would-be buyers who search for a new development on their GPS devices or interactive map sites like MapQuest, Google, Bing and others, either get a message that the address doesn't exist or, worse yet, they get a wrong address and wrong directions. The result is frustration for the consumer and a lost sales opportunity for the developer.

Putmeonthemap.com: A Simple Solution Generates Positive Results
Sponsored by major mapping data providers, putmeonthemap.com is a free online portal that allows builders to upload their final plot (site) plan as soon as it's approved by the local government. From there, putmeonthemap sponsors expedite the process of getting the site information to online map and GPS providers. What's more, putmeonthemap provides immediate assistance in the form of a digital map and instructions on how to create an interactive map on the builder's website.

"Putmeonthemap is incredibly easy to use," says Jason Woods of Pinerock Walk. "You simply upload your final site plan in DXF or DWG format, and putmeonthemap does the rest. They even helped me build an interactive map on my website to give prospective buyers door-to-door directions. That helped a lot.
