SAN JOSE, Calif., June 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Realtor.com®, the leader in online real estate operated by Move, Inc. (NASDAQ: MOVE), today announced Find it First Hits the Road with Airstream, a mobile treasure hunt with iconic lifestyle brand Airstream, Inc. makers of premium luxury aluminum trailers. The new summer promotion encourages players to search for a virtual Airstream as it travels across the country, using realtor.com® and its mobile app, for a chance to win a grand prize of a 22' Airstream Sport.
Between June 26 and July 25, participants can search realtor.com® and its mobile app for the Airstream trailer as it travels the highways and byways of America. The Airstream location will be updated throughout the day[i] and teased out to players through Twitter and other social media channels. Each time a participant locates the Airstream in a new location, and sends it to an address specified in the contest rules he or she will be entered into a weekly prize drawing, as well as the grand prize drawing. Sweepstakes rules[ii] permit the grand prize winner to choose an Airstream or $20,000 towards rent or mortgage payments for a year.
"Real estate inventory is at historic lows. Realtor.com® launched Find it First to highlight how accurate and timely real estate listings help home buyers stay ahead of the competition," said Barbara O'Connor, executive vice president of marketing at Move. "Working with Airstream on a Find it First summer treasure hunt brings an element of fun to the campaign. In addition to the possibility of winning, this contest helps users explore realtor.com® and its mobile apps and become more familiar with our new features, such as school search and estimated home values."
