Launching Today Nationwide: Internet’s largest Website, Listing Service and Networking Venue Focused Solely on Lots and Land for Homesites or Development More than 250,000 Listings Searchable for Free.
CHARLOTTE, N.C., June 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — LotNetwork.com, the first nationwide listing service focused solely on residential lots and land, launched today featuring more than 250,000 properties for sale across the country.
LotNetwork.com is designed to help provide buyers and sellers of land for homesites and residential development with a targeted, easy-to-use, and economical way to connect with each other, while addressing the unique challenges of marketing these types of properties.
As the effects of the Great Recession begin to ease, sustained recovery still hinges on the revitalization of the housing market and the residential construction and development industry. Recognizing the surplus of lots and land ready for development across the country, LotNetwork.com is a valuable new tool that connects landowners, developers and builders with potential homeowners and other targeted buyers, helping to move lots and spur home building.
“Anyone who works in buying and selling residential lots and land knows that it’s a unique process; it’s different from buying a home or commercial property, but existing listing sites just dump residential lots into a sea of other listings,” said Steve Sanders, LotNetwork.com co-founder and president. “Buyers don’t want to wade through hundreds of irrelevant commercial listings, hunting properties or homes for sale to find a single homesite or potential development property – and sellers don’t want their listing lost in all that clutter. LotNetwork.com is the solution to this problem – the one site for homesites.”
Targeted Listings, Targeted Results
Whether a user is looking to sell a handful of lots, market an entire development project or find a single lot on which to build a home, LotNetwork.com is the easiest, most comprehensive way to find and list homesites and developable property by land type, utilities and infrastructure available or needed, zoning requirements and other detailed parameters. Using LotNetwork.com’s industry-specific data fields, buyers can zero in on the exact property they want, and sellers can save time and money by reaching knowledgeable, motivated buyers.
LotNetwork.com’s Premium and Featured listings are designed to provide information specific to the homebuilding industry and allow unlimited attachments – such as building plans, site plans, engineering and environmental reports – to create robust and relevant listings.
Users will find LotNetwork.com ideal for:
- Searching for their “dream” home site
- Evaluating potential residential properties, projects and markets
- Connecting with other builders and developers, and identifying potential partners
- Marketing directly to homebuyers who can buy a lot and find a builder in one venue
Searching LotNetwork.com’s extensive database is free. Users can create saved searches that can be launched with a click of the mouse; new listing alerts to monitor the market; and saved favorites that send email alerts if there’s a change in price or status of the listings they are tracking.
Sellers pay an affordable, monthly subscription fee for either single listings or an unlimited listing plan. LotNetwork.com’s Featured and Premium listings put these properties at the top of search results and on the site’s front page.
Industry News, Tips and Networking
More than just a listing service, LotNetwork.com provides social marketing and networking tools. The site’s blog, Facebook page and Twitter feeds feature key listings, provide industry news and information and offer an interactive experience for users. In other features being developed, users will be able to build personal and business profiles to showcase their services while including full biographical, company and contact information. The profile page will include instant links to all the user’s listings and is designed to help create new connections, meet potential partners and connect with interested buyers. These features are just another way LotNetwork.com is different from traditional land and listing sites.
“Chances are, you know the main players in your local market – but in this economy, your usual network isn’t enough,” Sanders said. “You need a way to expand your reach and put your listing in front of targeted, active buyers, whether they’re across the street or across the country. LotNetwork.com helps you build new connections and market yourself with the digital tools that today’s savvy buyers and sellers expect.”
