Build your own local real estate empire
The BLOX Real Estate vertical realty marketplace helps you leverage the strength of your brand and audience to match property buyers and sellers in your area.
Once, newspapers were the prime matchmakers for local property buyers and sellers. Today, buyers and renters search the web first, and agents and FSBO sellers are spending big online. BLOX Real Estate can help you grab your share of real estate ad sales in your market.
BLOX Real Estate classifieds and seller pages are mobile-optimized when viewed on a tablet or smartphone. Listings include a link to Google Maps so buyers don't get lost on their way to the open house.
Build revenue with upsells
Offer your advertisers upsells to help them stand out from the competition. BLOX Real Estate lets you present opportunities like listings on your open house calendar, "Home of the Day" spotlighting, flags ("Hot," "Featured," "Price Reduced," etc.), coupons, photos, videos, top search result placement and more.
BLOX Real Estate includes a robust search engine that allows users to find properties based on price range, year built, number of bedrooms, number of bathrooms and more. If upsells apply, these extras also display in search results, highlighting your paid advertisers' listings.
Better than Craigslist
Sellers can enhance their BLOX Real Estate ads with image and YouTube galleries, social media integration, user comments and expert Q&As. You can even offer trackable phone numbers, allowing sellers to monitor the effectiveness of their campaigns with easy-to-understand reports.
Custom seller storefronts
For brokers without websites, or those wishing to expand their web presence, business pages can be outfitted with custom branding (another upsell!), including headers, colors and navigation. Combine with calendar events, coupons, classifieds and blogs posts for an instant mini-site.
Many ways to populate
Load your BLOX Real Estate site with feeds from MLS, IDX, RETS and more.** Accept feeds from real estate brokers and management companies, or single "for sale by owner" classifieds from private parties. Sellers manage their inventory via an intuitive web-based dashboard.
Integrated with BLOX CMS
BLOX Real Estate is built on BLOX CMS, one of the most advanced content management platforms in the business. It's easy to display BLOX Real Estate widgets next to calendar events, articles, videos, coupons and classifieds, giving advertisers maximum visibility and ROI.
