Blaine, WA (PRWEB) August 26, 2010
Washington State Business woman, Rosemarie Francis is pleased to announce the launch of http://www.MyRealTrade.com. http://www.MyRealTrade.com out of Washington State, is a website that provides and quick and easy to use tool for people that are having trouble selling their real estate and might consider trading. The website would be ideal for anyone selling to upsize, downsize, relocate or make a change of any type.
The website enables you to upload your property, identify if it is for just “for sale” or “for sale or trade” and then input the parameters that you would be interested in trading for. You could put as many or as few as you would like. Currently you can search or browse the properties by location and as detailed as number of bathrooms if you would like. Francis recommends that if you keep your searches more open you will increase your likelihood of finding a match. Sellers can put their properties on the website themselves or if working with an Agent ask their Agent to put their property on the website.
The website will also contain a biweekly blog that Francis will use to update and summarize all of the current Real Estate News.
The website is agent friendly and is designed for both selling and trading. Sellers are encouraged to list their properties For Sale just so that they can get additional exposure. Francis believes that it only takes one person to want what you have and you never know how or where they will come from.
Francis came up with the idea because she has a couple of properties that she has been trying to sell over the past year without any success and could not find any great websites for trading. With the recent news from the National Association of Realtors that July 2010’s single family home sales are the lowest in over a decade and more forecasts of a 5% - 10% price decline over the winter, Francis believes that people are ready to look at other ways to sell their real estate. “We are seeing markets with over a 50% price decline. This is because people that have to sell are discounting heavily in order to attract the few buyers that are out there. A website that can match buyers and sellers will offer the public a way to sell their property via trading, the couple that needs to move from San Francisco to Dallas can now have a way to connect with people in Dallas who might want to move to San Francisco. This tool is a way for people to sell their homes without having to offer them at rock bottom pricing. The reality is that the reason there are so few buyers is because the buyers can’t sell their own properties and are stuck in their current markets. This is a way to free up those people and increase Real Estate absorption and the more Real Estate that gets absorbed the better it will be for all of us.”
Listings on the website are free as the database is populated. Francis is hoping to have more than 100,000 listings on the website. For more information please visit http://www.myrealtrade.com.
