Napa, CA (PRWEB) October 11, 2012
ListedBy (http://www.ListedBy.com), the first free online real estate marketplace and social network with live bidding auction and ‘Submit Offer’ functionality today released a U.S. MLS listings search option on ListedBy.com, in partnership with Point2 (http://www.point2.com), a leader in listing syndication and agent productivity solutions. The milestone marks the industry’s first online auction site to offer MLS syndication search.
In addition to ListedBy’s core Live Offer Listings search, the implementation creates a separate, dedicated MLS Listings search option that gives site visitors access to nearly 800,000 for sale property listings covering all U.S. states and that include Point2 Agent platform user listings.
ListedBy will prominently feature listing agents alongside their respective inventory, with hyperlinks to their website and other contact information such as their published telephone number. The system will also enable prospects to send direct inquiries to the agents, delivered with all other leads back to the listing agent or broker, completely free of charge.
Two clearly identified listing search options will enable buyers on ListedBy.com to navigate between member-entered live bidding auction and `Submit Offer` listings, and standard MLS listings.
"Today is one of the most exciting days so far in the history of ListedBy.com. We now stand alone as the first and only site to offer the combination of eBay-style marketplace inventory, and MLS syndication inventory all in one spot, truly reinforcing our mission to be the one stop shop to meet all of our users’ needs in real estate," said Stephan Piscano, ListedBy’s founder and chief executive officer. "Supplementing our live offer inventory with nearly 800,000 MLS listings strengthens buyer engagement on ListedBy.com and creates high exposure for listing agents looking to engage with cash or finance ready buyers."
"ListedBy’s focus on highlighting the true listing agent and putting buyers in direct contact with them is exceptional and will serve our Point2 Agent members and MLS partners well," said Saul Klein, senior vice president, Point2. "As REALTORS® begin to explore the online bidding and negotiations model, our partnership with ListedBy stands to deliver unique benefits to our users."
A data feed drawn from Point2 will update the listings at least once each day, offering to ListedBy.com visitors the most up to date listings from more than 240 of the country’s leading real estate Multiple Listing Service (MLS) organizations, boards and associations including Realcomp II Ltd., North Texas Real Estate Information Systems Inc. and California Regional MLS, Inc.
