FORT MYERS, Fla., April 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- If a picture's worth a thousand words, then a video must be worth millions. That's the thought behind the new real estate listing website ClassifiedsEarth.com (http://www.classifiedsearth.com). The free service enables realtors, property managers, homeowners, builders, and home improvement companies to add a YouTube video to each listing, giving prospective buyers the immersive, dynamic experience of "being there."
"Ads from licensed realtors on ClassifiedsEarth.com have increased dramatically over the last six months," explained Manager James Reardon. "With the ability to create listings for virtually any location in the world, the website's potential is limitless. Best of all, it's completely free to register. As sellers and agents flee from Craigslist, ClassifiedsEarth.com is pleased to offer an innovative solution that takes advantage of the latest technology and best practices."
Once among the preferred platforms for anyone looking to sell property, Craigslist has, thanks to internal policy changes, fallen hard from that top spot. For one thing, the site has become maddeningly particular about the use of html code, images, and hyperlinks. Plus, Craigslist may soon start charging for each and every real estate listing and also listings in other dealer categories.
ClassifiedsEarth.com, on the other hand, is built around the concepts of free basic listings and the powerfully communicative medium of video. Buyers can take a walk-through of a property thousands of miles away without even leaving the couch. Using the site's messaging system, buyers can send questions directly to the seller.
Reardon added: "Video is flat-out superior to text and photos in every way. Realtors are known for being early adopters of any tool or technology that helps them move property, and video definitely fits that bill. At the same time, most people interested in selling property value simplicity and control. We've therefore created a feature-rich site with almost zero learning curve. Registration is a snap, and members can easily manage every aspect of their account."
For property sellers, the benefits of ClassifiedsEarth.com go beyond just embedded video; sellers and buyers alike can use the site's built-in messaging system to ask and answer questions, ironing out the details of a sale. To boost the visibility of listings, members can broadcast them to all the major social networks with the click of a mouse. Best of all, creating a listing only takes a minute or two. After that, sellers can see all of their active listings on a single page.
Registration and simple listings are always free on ClassifiedsEarth.com. Members can add bold titles or featured listings (pushing a listing to the top of results) for a small, one-time fee. For a monthly or yearly fee, realtors can even set up a fully branded, on-site storefront.
Launched in late 2010, ClassifiedsEarth.com is a free and paid classified ads website. The site is sympathetic to the needs of individuals who make their income from Internet sales and affiliate marketing. The owner and manager of this site is himself an affiliate marketer himself; he realized that having complete control over a classified ads website would allow him to fine tune its features and options with this audience in mind. Those interested in maintaining a long-term presence on ClassifiedsEarth.com are encouraged to establish a storefront, complete with branding, logo, and custom URL.
