Minneapolis, MN & Dallas, TX (PRWEB) January 16, 2014
400 Doors, an agent-to-agent real estate site, today announced the national launch of its free networking platform enabling agents to actively share advance residential property listings, buyer needs and rental needs outside of traditional listing services.
With success in the Minneapolis/St. Paul market and demand from agents nationwide, 400 Doors today expands its real estate agent networking platform to the Dallas/Fort Worth market — soon followed by Chicago, New York and Miami.
“Over 750 real estate agents in the Twin Cities are already sharing property listings and buyer needs on 400 Doors,” said Bill Pauling, 400 Doors CEO and co-founder. “And we’re thrilled to spread the power of agent-to-agent networking across the US — starting with Dallas/Fort Worth.”
Unlike multiple listing services (MLS), 400 Doors enables agent-to-agent networking across local brokerages to match buyers with desirable homes early in the search process. And, for sellers, it's a way to for agents to see who's looking for similar properties and build momentum before a listing goes public on the MLS — if it even lasts that long. The site is free to agents and earns revenue from home service providers such as movers, painters, landscapers, etc.
“In this fast-paced market, agent-to-agent networking gives my clients a huge edge,” said 400 Doors member and real estate agent Carolyn Gronfield of RE/MAX Results. “I've sold several pre- and non-MLS listings already this year thanks to 400 Doors.”
Gaining momentum nationally is a trend of both buyers and sellers forgoing multiple listing services altogether in favor of advance listings. Buyers in competitive markets are too often frustrated with low quality results and homes that are already sold. Savvy agents, similarly, are finding traditional listing services offer too little, too late and are increasingly turning to new tools like 400 Doors to give their clients an edge.
With 400 Doors agents can post their listings before making them public, share buyer needs with every agent in their market, and even help their clients find rental properties. Advanced tools match buyer needs with listings, automatically notifying agents when matches become available.
In addition, 400 Doors provides agents access to a curated list of local home service providers. Here they can find businesses to help get their client's listing ready to sell, ready to move in, or just update their current home.
