Innovative Website Could Change how People 'do' Real Estate

Jun 23, 2010, 05:00 ET from Your Place and Mine

SANFORD, N.C., June 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Your Place and Mine is a new website that provides a way for homeowners to promote the sale of their homes in a wide-reaching public forum at zero cost.  In addition, home buyers will be able to create a free account that contains their specific real estate search criteria.  As soon as a property that matches those criteria is listed on the website, the buyer is alerted of the match.  The website was created as a free service to all who wish to use it.

Your Place and Mine started as an idea between friends associated in the real estate community. After the economic housing boom went bust they saw the need to give home owners the ability to sell their homes in their own way.  "The free service and ease of use are the two key elements that will drive this site's success,"  noted Co-founder Brandon Atkins.

The service is free because it is a "user generated content" site, which means the user will be adding the information, descriptions, pictures and even video to market their own property.  One would be empowered to make real time changes to their listing without having to contact the service provider.   This level of convenience allows the user to search and make marketing decisions on their own schedule.

The creators are quick to state that nothing replaces a good, diligent real estate agent when it comes to buying and selling property.  With that said they add that this site will provide buyers and sellers with more options when conducting real estate business.  In fact, people in the market currently utilizing a real estate agent can look to yourplaceandmine.com to further increase their exposure in the marketplace.

"People list their property for one thing and that's to sell it, but the motivating factors for each seller could be vastly different depending on the situation,"  stated Atkins.  Atkins continued that "One person could be testing out the market, while another may not be able to afford the expense of marketing."  These are just two scenarios of many that Your Place and Mine addresses with its free service.  For more information, visit http://www.yourplaceandmine.com.
