The realWITS Company Launches Websites for Real Estate Companies Dubbed “Smarter”

An experienced and respected real estate participant and An experienced and respected real estate participant and SEO adviser has launched a new company, realWITS, to help brokers design actionable real estate company websites, get better results and learn how to integrate sales campaigns with modern techniques of leveraging real estate SEO benefits, providing interactive customer service and challenging not only with local online competitors but also with highly recognized online consumer real estate portals.

Real Estate Web Development Demands Compelling Websites

The company’s mantra is “Smarter Real Estate Websites,” and its mission is to educate real estate professionals about online marketing trends so that they can create more functional websites, optimize searches, integrate modern applications and produce dynamic content.

The real estate industry has traditionally resisted change, but modern real estate Web development and real estate SEO for websites require transformations from conservative advertising and marketing strategies to engage new generations of clients.

Randi Thornton, founder of realWITS, has built a reputation as the go-to SEO Google Gurufrom many years of experience in website development, online promotion and the real estate industry. Many real estate websites treat their online efforts as sideline activities or hobbies, and after working with big branded real estate company websites, Thornton feels strongly that the industry fail to take advantage of their full online marketing potential.

Major problems in most company real estate websites include the following shortcomings:

• Brokers do not control their online presence and messaging.
• Website designs fail to meet the needs of people who search online.
• Real estate websites struggle to achieve strong SEO rankings because of the original website build-out.
• Lack of regular technology upgrades force websites to become outdated.
• Failure to take advantage of website lead-generating capabilities.

Smarter Websites Integrate Design, Content and Functionality

Many real estate companies limit their prospects by only trying to compete with other brokerages, a strategy which fails to take advantage of today’s technologies used by other successful industries and the interactive potential of online marketing.

A popular destination real estate broker website strategically focuses on integration of successful leading websites approaches across all industries, and marketers need to incorporate key elements of design, fresh content, Google rankings, mobile technology, and fast processing speeds to keep up with competitors.

Savvy real estate brokers can optimize website performance by considering the following elements of design and function:

Create Distinctive Designs

Website design generates the platforms that launch successful online real estate marketing campaigns, and conceptual elements should compel a casual online website visitor to engage with actionable functionality by incorporating visually appealing design, easy to navigate structures and an intuitive user experience.

• Forward-thinking real estate brokers will take a look around them and learn from other applications that have gone viral.
• Stunning designs often depend on using a simplistic look and feel, clean site architecture, complementary color schemes, accessible search and intuitive controls.
• Functional copy includes compelling content that delivers quantifiable local communications that help buyers make informed and quicker buying decisions.
• A real estate company website needs to offer photo-centric platforms for property listings.
• Websites attract and retain buyers and sellers with property explore functionality that exposes robust search activity.
• Proper usage of on-site real estate SEO including keyword density, on-page SEO best practice techniques, optimize company brands, local authority rankings and online reputations.

Fluidity VS Static

Smarter real estate company websites create fluid designs that make incorporating changes and updating copy easy to accomplish. Google search engines now place great emphasis on freshness of content when ranking websites in organic searches. Effective sites leave room to make modular changes in designs and copy to take advantage of new technology and online trends.

Growing Impact of Mobile Devices

Consumers increasingly use their mobile devices to find products and services, keep track of personal appointments, make social connections and interact with local businesses. Real estate company website designs need to look good and provide searches with the information they seek on a variety of mobile-device screens.

Monitoring Traffic and Online Behavior

Analytic tools study behind-the-scenes practices and chart consumer behavior to help website owners tweak their designs, change their design strategies and respond to customer concerns and feedback. Smarter real estate company websites use these tools to generate leads, predict consumer behavior, stay ahead of marketing trends and create better real estate SEO campaigns.

Real Estate SEO Marketing

Real estate SEO (search engine optimization) marketing works differently than traditional advertising, and learning to leverage the benefits of on-site SEO helps real estate companies establish online authority, build reputations, interact and create enthusiasm for buyers and sellers, regions and neighborhoods.

Clever brokers will take advantage of unique community real estate data so people revisit for information and connections with a relevant, trend setting online real estate source.
Pinterest Type Usage of Imagery

Effective online real estate marketing requires correct usage of photos to productively showcase properties. No matter how well written a property description is it will never grab the attention of a buyer better than a picture will.

The main emphasis of a company real estate website should be imagery that tells a story and conveys “I want to see more” from buyers, says Randi Thornton.

The realWITS company offers expert real estate company website design, on site-SEO application, education, and strategy for savvy brokers who want to produce above-average returns from their online marketing dollars. The company will function as an authoritative source of designs, strategies and consultations on all the issues that impact a real estate company website.

Scottsdale Real Estate Demand Surges as Tax Credit Got a New Lifeline

The Scottsdale real estate market is again soaring high, thanks to Pres. Obama, and his decision to extend the tax credit deadline on the home deals for the first time home buyers till April 30, 2010. The original deadline for the $8,000 tax credit break was November 30, 2009. The Obama administration has also made some changes in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 to enable existing home owners avail the tax credit on the purchase of a bigger primary residence.

The updated version of the tax credit has announced a tax break of 10% of the total purchase price of the home amounting to maximum $8,000 for the first time home buyer. It also includes a tax break of $6,500 for the existing home owners who want to shift to a bigger primary residence. To qualify for the first time home buyers’ tax credit, the applicant has to show that he or she has not owned a home in last three years. To qualify for the existing home owners’ tax credit, the applicant needs to show ownership and occupancy of a primary residence for at least 5 consecutive years in the last 8 years.

“In Scottsdale, since the news came, we are seeing a significant rise in the inflow of buyers,” said Morgan H Hodges, a managing partner of MoJo Realty Group. He further added, “The first phase of the credit break pulled the first time home buyers into the market, and this new extension worked as a magnet to pull those who always wanted to move into a bigger and better house. Scottsdale real estate is hot now.”

Any single tax payer or married couple filing joint return can apply for the tax credit. The single filer should have gross earnings of less than $125,000, and joint filers should have gross earnings of up to $225,000 to avail a full tax credit under the updated American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. A single filer earning between $125,000 and $145,000, and a joint filers earning between $225,000 and $245,000 will be eligible for the partial tax credit only. Any single filer earning more than $145,000, and any joint filers earning more than $245,000 are not eligible for any tax credit.

One should keep in mind that a property of more than $800,000 sale price will not qualify for the tax credit, and to qualify for the tax credit, the property contract needs to be signed on or before April 30, 2010 and the sale should be finalized on or before June 30, 2010.

“Everyone in Scottsdale is happy with this extension and inclusion of existing home buyers in the tax credit,” said Josh W. Hintzen, managing partner of MoJo Realty Group. “These changes have brought many buyers into the market. The demand for single family homes is one the rise, and the home prices are steady. As of now, we are not seeing any sign of decline in the Scottsdale real estate market in the coming months.”

Kenn Renner Unveils Website For The Avery Ranch Golf Course Community

Kenn Renner has long been the top producer for one of the most desired real estate locations in Central Texas. The popular Avery Ranch was much awaited when first opened in 2000, with Kenn sold 17 homes the first day they went on sale.

Avery Ranch Golf Course Community

In addition to the traditional items found on a real estate website, Kenn states that his site gives extensive history of Avery Ranch, provides videos and provides additional information on multiple aspects of home buying. Kenn provides seminars as well, with more information available on his new website www.BuyAveryRanch.com.

Kenn has now dedicated an entire website to this premium real estate location. Kenn says, “Avery Ranch has over 4,000 homes and over 1800 acres, with an award winning golf course and club house.” He highlights the amenities on his site, such as the pools and beautiful outdoor recreation opportunities. In addition to these amenities, there are playscapes, tennis courts – and an outdoor amphitheater.

In the Avery Ranch predevelopment stage, Kenn had visited one of original homes, and was attracted to the history of the Avery Ranch location. During this time, Renner states that he walked nearly all the lot lines personally and watched almost all of the homes being built. Kenn embraces the rich history of Avery Ranch, as it is a “true icon of central Texas.” Kenn states that the developers managed to “preserve the integrity of the Texas Hill Country experience” while still giving residents a great place to live, shop and work.

With over 200 home closings in the Avery Ranch since the golf course community opened, Kenn has sold more homes than any other realtor in the Avery Ranch location. As a top performer, his new website allows home buyers and sellers to view and market properties.

Kenn’s new website, www.BuyAveryRanch.com, is dedicated not only to the established neighborhoods in the Avery Ranch Real Estate, but also features the new additions of Pearson Place and Avery Station. “These two new developments,” says Kenn, “are just south of Avery Ranch,” and Avery Ranch’s “legacy continues to grow” as this area remains one of the top selling areas in central Texas.

Buyers and sellers alike are continuing to benefit from Kenn’s experience as he launches his new website to showcase not only the homes available in the beautiful Avery Ranch, but he highlights the new developments happening in the community as well. Avery Ranch homebuyers and sellers alike can easily view the homes for sale and comparison shop.

Visit either one of his websites for more information on buying or selling a home in Avery Ranch or one of the new additions of Pearson Place or Avery Station. www.BuyAustin.com or the site specifically for Avery Ranch – www.BuyAveryRanch.com to find useful information.

Kenn Renner with BuyAustin.com Updates Austin on the First Time Home Buyer Extension

The First Time Homebuyer Credit was signed into Law in February 2009 to help stimulate the slumping housing market. The original Bill contained an $8000 tax credit for first time home buyers who purchased a home between January 1, 2009 and November 30, 2009. This past Friday the $8000 tax credit was extended past the November 30th deadline.

Kenn Renner

This extension will extend the tax credit to include contracts signed by April 30th and are closed by June 30th next year. In addition, the extension will include a $6500 tax credit to those who have had a least 5 years of consecutive homeownership 5 out of the last 8 years. “Therefore, this extension not only benefits first-time homebuyers, but also homeowners, says Kenn Renner, first-time home buying expert with BuyAustin.com.

Mr. Renner says his office had been inundated with calls about the first extension. With the credit having been extended he said, “The fact there is a cutoff for contract leads me to believe that this will not be extended again. So anyone who is eligible and wants to take advantage of the tax break needs to take action sooner than later.”

Kenn Renner reminds those who want to take advantage of this extension that there are a few rules that new homebuyers need to be aware of:

1. Homes must be under contract for purchase by April 30th, 2010 and close by June 30, 2010.

2. Home buyers can receive the tax credit by amending their current tax returns, thus not having to wait until filing their tax returns next year and receiving the credit quicker.

3. Income limitations have been expanded.

4. The tax credit is no longer limited to just first time home buyers (considered those that have not owned a primary residence in the past 3 year), repeat home buyers that qualify and have lived in a primary residence for 5 out of the past 8 years qualify.

5. New or resale, Single Family, Condos & Townhomes all qualify for the credit as long as they become primary residences.

It is projected that 1.8 million homebuyers will benefit from the first time homebuyer credit by the end of this November. The National Association of Realtors believes approximately 355,000, nearly 20%, would not have purchased their new home without the First Time Home Buyer Program.

The Approaching Tax Credit Deadline Is Pushing The First-Time Home Buyers Into The Market

There is a panic in the real estate market, but it’s no longer the panic driven by falling prices. The approaching tax credit deadline is creating the panic, and pushing the first-time home buyers into the market. The current rise in the demand for the Scottsdale real estate can be credited to this change in regulation.

As the November 30 deadline is closing in, the prospective home owners are trying hard to secure a deal before it is too late. The nationwide tax credit of $8,000 has worked as a catalyst in bringing the first-time home buyers to the Scottsdale and Phoenix real estate market. “The Scottsdale real estate market is hot and has been since spring, especially homes price under $400,000,” said Josh W. Hintzen, managing partner of MoJo Realty Group. He further added, “And with the November 30 deadline on the horizon, we’ve seen the Scottsdale real estate market gain momentum.”

As estimated by IRS, since February when the tax credit came in effect, in Arizona alone 38,000 taxpayers have taken the benefit under this plan, and around 1.4 million people nationwide have applied for the tax rebate. It is worth noting here that the U.S. median home price plummeted by 28 percent over 3 years in January. At that time, the market sentiment was at the lowest in 7 year.

It was only after the Congress approved American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 that the market started to recover. The first-time home buyers have been responsible for 43 percent of the home sales since the law came into effect. In a survey conducted by a leading market research company, 70 percent of the first-time home buyers said that the $8,000 rebate played a role in their purchase decision.

“The government stimulus package, falling interest rates, and well priced homes have brought buyer’s back into the housing market in Scottsdale, Phoenix and nationwide,” said Morgan H Hodges, a managing partner of MoJo Realty Group. “Supply has gone down and demand has gone up. We are in a much better market than we were 2 years ago. The numbers don’t lie.”

Realtors are divided on whether this surge and excitement in the housing market is temporary or here to stay. Some believe that the increase in home sales is mainly due to the stimulus package. Others believe that home buyers and investors have shed their fears and are back in the market regardless of the tax incentive.

Lately, there has been a lot of speculation in regards to the deadline of the first time home buyer’s tax credit. Will the government extend the cut-off date? If extended, will the credit be increased to $15,000? Will it be available to all buyer’s and not just first time home buyers? At this point, the tax incentive is set to expire November 30th and buyers should take advantage of the $8,000 while they still can.

Kenn Renner Teams Up With DR Horton To Warn About Expiring Federal Tax Credit

Top Austin real estate broker and author, Kenn Renner, with Buy Austin (www.BuyAustin.com) and DR Horton, Austin’s largest home builder, has reported they can only accept contracts for individuals who qualify for the first time home buying federal tax credit for a few more weeks. Although a hard deadline has not been set by either organization, first time homebuyers who do not take action now seriously risk missing the November 30th cut-off set by the government.

Top Austin real estate broker and author, Kenn Renner, with Buy Austin www.BuyAustin.com and DR Horton, Austin’s largest home builder reminds first time homebuyers of the impending deadline for the $8000 Federal Tax Credit, which is due to expire on Monday November 30th, 2009. Kenn urges first time home buyers who want to make use of the $8000 tax credit, “to purchase their home within the next few weeks in order to meet the first time home buyer federal tax credit deadline.”

Last February, President Barack Obama signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 in order to help kick start the sluggish US housing market. One of the key components of the Act was the creation of the $8000 first time home buyer federal tax credit. “The $8000 federal tax credit is essentially a free gift from the federal government,” says Renner, www.BuyAustin.com broker and a first time home buyer specialist.

The first time home buyer federal tax credit has been received favorably by many consumers, real estate professionals, and home builders across the US. “The first time home buyer federal tax credit has been successful because there is always a positive economic ripple effect each time a home is purchased,” says Renner. In addition, “its success has been fueled by “pent up demand, low interest rates and lower home prices,” Renner continues.

The National Association of Realtors recently reported that 53% of today’s homebuyers are first timers due in part to the $8000 federal tax credit. “Homebuyers just need to realize that the tax gift is going away and that now is the time to take action,” Renner urges.

Renner warns home buyers who wish to take advantage of the $8000 federal tax credit to focus primarily on available housing inventory. Renner adds, “although there are great deals for buyers in the short sale market, foreclosures and with bank owned REO companies, they unfortunately cannot process the contracts quick enough to meet the deadline. Therefore, buyers should focus on builder inventory or resale homes that are owner occupied in order to close before the impending deadline.”

First Time Home Buyer $8000 Federal Tax Credit Is Set To Expire

In February, President Obama signed into law the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. One of the key components of the act was the $8000 First Time Home Buyer Tax Credit. Basically, a gift from the federal government to be credited to qualified first time homebuyers. The act has been received favorably by consumers, real estate professionals, and homebuilders. The program has been successful because there is always a positive economic ripple effect each time a home is purchased. The National Association of Realtors recently reported that 53% of today’s homebuyers are first timers due in part to the $8000 tax credit. Pent up demand, low interest rates and low prices have also played a big part in the home buying activity.

“Buying a first home at the right time is always a good move,” comments Kenn Renner, real estate expert with Keller Williams Realty. “Homebuyers just need to realize that the tax gift is going away and that now is the time to take action,” Renner added.

Just as the “Cash For Clunkers” program is now history – the first time homebuyers tax credit is set to expire. The deadline is Monday, November 30th. The Monday after the Thanksgiving Day holidays. Title companies, escrow companies, and mortgage companies have been alerting the real estate community and their clientele to not wait until the last minute to close on a home as they will be overwhelmed with home buyers trying to beat the deadline.

“I have heard some title companies indicate they will need purchase contracts in by late October to ensure they have plenty of time to meet the deadline,” Renner explains. “There is no grace period – there is ‘talk’ that the government might continue the program, but right now we cannot assume any date except the current deadline that is stated in the law,” further adds Renner.

About Kenn Renner: Kenn gained national exposure from his numerous appearances on HGTV’s #1 rated show “House Hunters” and as a guest expert on business talk radio. He is a broker associate with Keller Williams Realty. He has sold and financed over $200 Million in real estate since 1983. His new book “First Time Home Buying Secrets Revealed” (www.FirsttimeHomebuyingSecrets.com) will be published nationwide this fall. On September 29th, Kenn will be presenting his popular “American Dream Home Buying Seminar” in downtown Austin. Visit www.BuyAustin.Com for more information.

Shouldn’t Foreclosure Always Be The Homeowner’s Last Resort?

Many families are in financial trouble because of a declining economy and an unstable real estate market. Numerous families are finding it increasingly difficult to pay for their mortgages and are in jeopardy of losing their homes to foreclosure*. Unfortunately, homeowners are not aware of the options that are available to them, or whom they can turn to for help.

First and foremost, a homeowner who is about to be or already is in financial distress should contact their current lender(s) to find out if there are options available for their particular situation. In some cases, a loan modification can be arranged directly with the lender, at no cost.

Regrettably, a significant number of home loans were poorly written; therefore, loan modification is not an option for a large portion of borrowers in distress. Homeowners may seek counseling; counseling is offered free of charge, by calling the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, HUD, toll free at: (800) 569-4287.

Homeowners should stay away from and beware of paying any fees to ANYONE, including so called, “counseling agencies”, as they are not regulated and offer little to no help. Most states have also set up toll free numbers to counsel their residents, so check with with your State of residency.

More and more homeowners, who have been unsuccessful in getting any assistance from their lenders and/or government agencies, are turning to a CERTIFIED DISTRESSED PROPERTY EXPERT© (CDPE©), a Licensed REALTOR® who specializes in helping distressed homeowners who are “upside down” on their equity, late on their mortgage payments or who are already in the foreclosure process. A CERTIFIED DISTRESSED PROPERTY EXPERT© will see the homeowner through their distressed situation by successfully negotiating a short sale with their lender(s).

Lenders are now more willing to accept a short sale offer for a property’s true value, even if it is less than the amount owed. However, lenders are receiving thousands of short sale offers per month (most of the offers are incomplete packages that get tossed away or to the side) so a complete and well-prepared short sale offer package, sent by a CERTIFIED DISTRESSED PROPERTY EXPERT©, has the highest chance to be expedited quickly through a lender’s full log.

The end result of a short sale is minor when compared to the consequences of a foreclosure. Foreclosures have a devastating effect on credit history, job security, employment opportunities, security clearances, military and law enforcement careers, and the ability to purchase a home in the future; these are just a few examples of the damaging consequences of a foreclosure. Additionally, a foreclosure becomes public record, which is searchable by anyone, and can NEVER be removed.

We have all been bombarded lately with new creative ads, mailers, door hangers, TV and radio commercials promoting “foreclosure delay experts”. These ads are an example of how advertising is being misused to confuse vulnerable homeowners. Some ads claim to provide a service whereby they guarantee a homeowner will stay in their home for one year. Another example of how deceitful information targets already distressed homeowners. The average time for a foreclosure proceeding in Florida is in excess of 200 days, free of charge; so these less-than-forthcoming advertisers are charging money, when people need it the most, for a service that homeowners, in essence, already have.

Please do not pay, or let anyone you know pay money to anybody claiming they can stop foreclosures, including attorneys. Attorneys cannot stop foreclosures! The new “fighting foreclosures” and “foreclosure defense” ads attorneys are now broadcasting are an additional example of how the manipulation of information is being used to confuse and mislead the targeted distressed homeowner. Attorneys will “fight” a foreclosure until the homeowner is out of money. The only “defense” to a foreclosure is payment. The attorney, however, for a considerable fee, can prolong the legal process of a foreclosure until the homeowner is completely broke or all legal extensions have been exhausted. Nevertheless, in the end, the homeowner will still lose their home to a foreclosure and and face all the disastrous consequences that a foreclosure brings.

If a homeowner has the available money to pay for these deceitful services, he/she should use that money to make their mortgage payments.

If the borrower can pay the total amount owed to the lender, even up to the sale date, the lender will stop foreclosure. No one but the lender can stop the foreclosure process, and they will do so when either the homeowner pays the mortgage, bringing the loan payments up to date, or there is a successful negotiation of a short sale. These are the ONLY two ways for a foreclosure process to end. The homeowner will then be able to move on with his/her life, and in many cases, be eligible to own a new home in two years.

If you (or anyone you know) are about to miss a mortgage payment, have already defaulted on a home loan, or have been served foreclosure papers, a CERTIFIED DISTRESSED PROPERTY EXPERT© is able to help. The sooner you seek help the better but help is available even up to the last phase of a foreclosure, so please do not refrain from seeking help, because you might think it is “too late”. A CDPE© will not charge the homeowner. The CDPE© gets paid by the lender, at the end of the foreclosure proceedings, due to the successful sale of the home.

I cannot emphasize enough that no money should ever leave a distressed homeowner’s hands, ever.

This information barely scratches the surface. Mortgage delinquency and foreclosures are complex issues. Each and every case has its own unique set of facts and challenges. In most cases, homeowners are experiencing this overwhelming stress alone, without help of any kind, from anyone. It does not have to be that way. Families all around the country are in desperate need of proper guidance.

Not only do homeowners feel uncomfortable seeking the help of strangers, but a good amount of distressed homeowners might not feel comfortable asking delicate, private financial questions to people they do know. As a result, they do not ask anyone, falling deeper in trouble and are more vulnerable to scams. The Short Sales Message Board is a venue that was created specifically for distressed homeowners to ask Experienced Real Estate professionals questions, while maintaining total privacy.

A foreclosure is a devastating financial and emotional process for any family to endure and recover from and it should hardly ever happen. Foreclosure IS the last resort.

* In Florida, a Judicial State, a foreclosure happens when a lender files a lawsuit in State court against a borrower.

Top Austin Real Estate Agent, Kenn Renner (www.BuyAustin.com) with Keller Williams Lake Travis Market Center in Lakeway Sold a Custom “Spec” Home in Five Days

In an economy where negative real estate and financial news has become an all too common subject of the media, it is refreshing to hear of a win-win real estate success story. On Saturday, March 7th real estate broker Kenn Renner listed a brand new custom lake view home built by Horne Brothers Custom Homes located at 8032 Riviera Estates, Leander, Texas (www.8032RivieraEstates.com).

Kenn’s buyers were alerted via email through a “client Gateway” – a free Internet search feature that allows buyers to be notified when new listings come on the market. “Our buyer called us within 24 hours of the home hitting the market, our team showed him the home immediately, and within a few days we had the purchase details worked out and now we are under contract and headed toward closing.” Kenn explained. “The strategy that we took with the builder was to wait until the home was totally completed and fully staged before putting it on the market.” In the luxury market where selling times can exceed a year, an immediate sale is rare.

The buyers, who work in the medical field, had been looking for over two years for exactly the right lake view property – being very patient and particular about the type of home and especially the view. This brand new luxury estate fit their requirements and the builder will be adding a negative edge pool to complete their dream home. Our buyers confirmed their satisfaction exclaiming “This IS home!”

“In today’s extremely competitive market it takes a combination of strategies to sell a luxury home. It boils down to – staging, pricing, marketing and patience. The property must be staged and showcased with virtual tours, professional photography and graphic floor plans. I take it a step further and include high definition video tours that feature virtual aerial flyovers utilizing Google Earth.” Kenn adds “over
85% of home buyers begin their search on the Internet – for high end homes that number is much higher and they expect video content to be a part of the presentation.” As he does with all his listings Kenn created a unique property website exclusive to the home (www.8032RivieraEstates.Com). Buyers can navigate directly to a fully interactive exclusive website that features the specific property as opposed to a static web page or a typical multiple listing link.“Sellers need the marketing edge and exclusivity in all selling situations, especially luxury homes.”

Kenn owes much of his video expertise from his many appearances on the National television – HGTV’s “House Hunters.” Kenn produces all of his videos in-house and has a full time production assistant. “This home sold so quick I was not able to get the video finished in time, but we will add it at a later date because the home is spectacular and will show great in Hi Def.” Kenn recently released a video of another Lake Travis estate property called Lime Creek Ranch (www.LimeCreekRanch.com), which showcases the property with virtual flyovers and 360-degree panoramas. “Having great video content is just the first step – we then spend a lot of time and resources getting them placed high on the search engines including Google & Youtube. We often are placed in the very first position when someone types in the keywords Austin Real Estate Videos in Google.”

He also utilizes intense search engine optimization (SEO) to get his listings and popular websites to the top of the search engines. “You must make your clients property very Internet friendly and then get them exposed with proper keyword phrases to be competitive in this market.” Having great websites also helps his clients exposure like his popular website Austin real estate website www.BuyAustin.com, which has been around since 1995 or his newly developed www.AustinHomeVideos.com.

Overseas Property Business Boosted By Twitter

Overseas property website Homesgofast.com demonstrates how things have changed in real estate with social media being an integral part of online marketing. The 21st century phenomena, and a web 2.0 craze has seen the site developing international contacts via Twitter which is a microcosm of the social networking craze.

For some businesses, still trying to get to grips with Social media and Web 2.0, Twitter has them scratching their heads and some are even quite afraid of it; “what if no one wants to follow me, won’t that do more harm than good?”

The answer is no; if no one is following you, no one will know, will they?

If you don’t know the answer to that question, then it is clear you haven’t yet embraced the phenomenon that is Twitter.

The overseas property business which includes a dedicated real estate blog has always been quick to embrace new technology, and has fallen in love with Twitter. The site is not only “on Twitter”, but they have even found its applications in building the business.

Nick Marr, director of Marr International, the group behind the portal, said:

“We love Twitter! It is really good for us, and for any business that produces engaging articles and content on a regular basis. Twitter allows you to share your content with the world, and if it is good content, your gang of followers will quickly grow.

“At first we thought it was just a way of building traffic to the site, as our following grows, we are being approached by businesses wanting to advertise and/or affiliate with us — through Twitter!”

Nick said their “Tweets” had become particularly popular with property marketers in the US and in the Caribbean. “We are in the process of forming a working relationship with the proprietor of propertyadsja.com, who contacted us after seeing our following grow on Twitter,” Nick explained, adding: “we will continue to exploit this new medium, and are particularly keen to follow, and be followed by those involved in the Jamaican property market.”

Kenn Renner and Sport Court of Austin are featured on an up coming episode of HGTV’s number #1 rated television show “House Hunters”

On Monday, February 16th at 6:30 Central Time (7:30 Pacific/Eastern) HGTV’s # 1 rated show “House Hunters” will air featuring Lake Travis estate homes. One of the homes on the show will feature a sport court built by Sport Court of Austin. On the show, real estate expert Kenn Renner (www.buyaustin.com) will tour three luxury lakeside estates – all just twenty minutes f r o m  downtown Austin, Texas. “All of the homes were absolutely stunning but the home with the sport court was truly unique – when we saw the court with a lake view it really was a show stopper. With home buyers a sport court shouts – healthy family get-togethers!” Kenn, a twenty-five year veteran of real estate and national speaker has been encouraging his custom home building clients to consider building a sport court to enhance the value and appeal of their luxury home. He explains, “a sport court and a putting green can be installed for much less than an in-ground pool and can certainly influence a buyer’s home choice. The luxury market is a buyer’s market right now and a sport court can make the difference in final home selection.”

Kenn recently met with the owner of Sport Court of Austin, Greg Dettman, who has been building courts in the Austin area since 1978. He has built over 1000 courts in and around Austin. He agrees that these days, his clients are looking to enhance the family value of a home. He sees sport court buyers making an investment in their homes “and” their children through the quality time they will spend playing basketball, volleyball, tennis etc. “A backyard court gives kids a place to hang out at home and stay active and away f r o m the video games,” Dettman says. Sport Court of Austin has installed courts and greens for celebrities , sports stars and coaches, as well as many “not so famous people like you and me – however we are famous in our kid’s eyes and that’s what’s really important,” Dettman further adds. A popular Youtube video featuring one of his sport courts and the star of the House Hunters show can be found at http://www.JustinRenner.com.

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Sport Court of Austin and the honor of being featured on National Television’s “House Hunters” Greg and Kenn are having a reception at the new Steiner Steak House (www.SteinerSteakhouse.com) the day of the show – Monday, February 16th.

250,000 new families will enter foreclosure every three months according to the Mortgage Bankers Association

Over 60% of those families don’t know about services and options that mortgage lenders offer to help avoid foreclosure.

Most homeowners try and get refinancing for their home loan if they fear foreclosure. Others try to negotiate a “short sale” or just accept the foreclosure and walk away. Many homeowners have never heard of loan modification, a legal process that a homeowner can use to renegotiate loan terms with the current lender to reflect current financial circumstances.

“The people I’ve worked with in the past either don’t know what loan modification is, or they believe loan modification requires a high-priced specialist,” said Troy Fullwood, creator of the Loan Modification Toolbox. “Most homeowners could do it themselves if they just get access to the information,” he added.

Most or all of the fees associated with loan modification can be rolled up into the new balance according to HUD guidelines. Because loan modification doesn’t usually require upfront fees, it’s a viable option for cash strapped families.

Considering that a home is the largest investment most people will ever make, the opportunity to save that investment offers a lifeline to many affected by recent market trends.

The Loan Modification Toolbox was created by Troy Fullwood to offer a loan modification roadmap and information at a fraction of a specialist’s cost. The Loan Modification Toolbox, offers step by step plans, necessary forms and lender negotiation requirements to homeowners trying to stop foreclosure.

Top Austin real estate home builder – Lennar Homes joins Kenn Renner leading Austin Realtor and owner of BuyAustin.com to assist homebuyers with new Move Assistance Programs also known as M.A.Ps

One of Austin’s premier builders, Lennar Homes and top real estate broker Kenn Renner of Keller Williams Realty, have developed a series of programs to help new homebuyers defer much of the cost associated with moving. The Move Assistance Programs (M.A.Ps) offers the following financial incentives to help a tenant or a move-up homebuyer with the expenses associated with relocating.

For Renters:

Lease Buy-Out Program – Provides assistance in paying off existing lease and/or covering the re-leasing fee.

Lease Negotiation Service – Provides expert negotiations with your current landlord.

For Move-up Homebuyers with a Home to Sell:

Expert Real Estate Counseling – Receive a free consultation with a 25-year real estate veteran.

Guaranteed Buy-out Program – A free evaluation and bottom-line price will be offered for your current home.

‘Sell Your Home for Free’ Program – A 0% net commission program that allows you to sell your home for zero total real estate commission.

Moving Cost Coverage Program – Helps defer the cost of moving expenses such as moving companies and moving trucks.

Temporary Rental Program – Provides assistance in locating temporary housing, furnished or unfurnished.

In a recent meeting, Lennar’s division president, Sean Chandler, stated, “There is no better time in recent history to purchase a new Lennar home. Austin is where everyone wants to be and Lennar is dedicated to helping homebuyers with the transition through financial incentive programs such as M.A.Ps.” Along with first class service and attention to detail – Lennar Homes is famous for their “Everything’s Included” homes. “Everything’s Included” is unique to national builders where buyers do not have to pay huge markups for “upgrades.” “Most ‘upgrades’ charged by other builders are included standard with Lennar Homes. Along with ‘Everything’s Included,’ Lennar is offering large price and financing incentives, especially on standing inventory,” Chandler adds.

Kenn Renner, a top selling central Texas real estate broker with Keller Williams Realty, and owner of www.BuyAustin.com explains, “In challenging economic times the larger more financially stable builders like Lennar are able to offer programs that the smaller builders just can’t afford to do. That is why they have called on us to develop the Move Assistance Programs (M.A.Ps).” Lennar is without a doubt pro-Realtor because they understand the need for professional counseling and guidance throughout the home-buying process. Renner adds, “Lennar understands the need for renters and move-up home buyers to have innovative alternatives such as lease buy-outs and sales cost (commission) coverage. I am pleased to be one of Lennar’s preferred Realtors.”

Lennar Homes was ranked number two nationwide by Builder Magazine in 2007 with over 30,000 homes sold nationwide. In Austin, Lennar has 18 subdivisions with prices ranging from the $110s to the $480s.

Kenn Renner (www.BuyAustin.com) consistently ranks as one of the top ten real estate agents in the city of Austin and Central Texas with over 400 home sales and over $80,000,000 in closings since 2005.
