Houston, TX (PRWEB) April 7, 2010
FloodProperties.com , a real estate listing service dedicated to helping homeowners sell flood damaged and foreclosed homes and properties, announces its recent re-launch. In addition to the re-launch, FloodProperties.com is offering free listings for flooded Rhode Island homeowners. For a limited time, Rhode Island homeowners can list their flooded homes and properties on FloodProperties.com can and connect with interested buyers at no cost (a $59 value).
"We are very proud of the new FloodProperties.com. As the launch coincides with the current flood in Rhode Island, we decided to help homeowners in that state by providing a valuable service free of charge,” says FloodProperties.com founder Marie Janke, a real estate broker located in League City, TX. "They can simply enter the code RI02 when prompted for payment.”
The newly redesigned FloodProperties.com is now more user friendly and better accessible via search engines. Now, users can better browse and view flood damaged homes and flooded properties throughout the United States. Each property listing includes a description of the property, photographs and inventory. All properties are mapped for easy viewing. Realtors are also welcome to list their flooded out properties on the site.
FloodProperties.com also features an online store with products used for flood remediation. Among other items, visitors to the store will find a selection of air conditioning products, antimicrobials and carpet cleaning products.
Janke founded FloodProperties.com after selling homes along the Texas Gulf Coast that were flooded by Hurricane Ike. During that time, she found difficulty connecting buyers to sellers since traditional communication methods were not available. In addition, she encountered many deceitful buyers sticking business cards on doors as well as homeowners who seemed to be at a complete loss. "The whole process was a mess,” Janke says. "I spent days sorting out the sales process. In some cases where there was no insurance, the sellers were so desperate they just sold for pennies on the dollar. As a result, I founded FloodProperties.com to help buyers and sellers connect in a straightforward, professional manner.”
With FloodProperties.com, flooded Rhode Island homeowners and flooded homeowners across the country can find interested, legitimate buyers for their flood damaged homes and properties.
"The biggest disconnect comes after a flood event where owners have decided to sell rather than return to the affected area,” Janke says. "Many investors are interested and want to buy flooded properties, but they have difficulty in finding the owners. It often takes weeks or more before phones work and mail is forwarded. FloodProperties.com eliminates this need to wait, meaning homeowners can sell their flooded homes and move on with their lives more quickly and easily.”
