Brokur.com, brings us a new one.
Inman News joked
that it's, "the dating site for real estate" due to it's unusual methods
for pairing brokers and clients. Brokur itself refers to their idea as
"Match.com meets LinkedIn." Either way you look at it, it's just another
way for real estate agents to get their name and message out there.
The idea is simple, it's a website that allows buyers or sellers to find their ideal "match" in a broker or agent. Instead of starting with a home search and then contacting a real estate agent attached to a listing they like, they can instead, find the real estate agent first, the property second.
The system operates very similarly to Twitter once you've signed up. You can post messages and photos to stay in front of your audience.
The good news is, whether this platform is something you'd like to tackle or not, it's absolutely free so there's little risk (for now anyways, there's talk of adding cost if you'd like to be featured down the road).
So far according to Inman News, only a few hundred brokers have signed up, so if you're going to hop on this train, you'll be one of the first.
