FrontDoor.com - A New Site by HGTV

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with RealSupport Inc.

Ok, so I am an avid HGTV watcher. I watch it every weekend, and have for the past 3 years or so. I watched before I bought my first home, during the purchase of my first home, and still watch now, two years into owning my home. I only tell you that so you get an idea of the range of demographics they have watching the channel.

All that said, I have noticed they are heavily promoting their new website, www.FrontDoor.com. They are still in beta (in the web world, that means testing). The site is live, but only brokers with over 100 listings can submit their listings through a feed. The option for brokers with less than 100 and individual agents will be given within a year.

Once this site is completely up and running, I think it will be a great place to advertise your listings, promote yourself through advertising packages, and have further enhanced listings. HGTV is doing a lot of promoting to drive traffic to the site, so I'm excited for them to be out of beta so we can see what kind of results this site will produce.

Another note - Several big sites are already syndicating to this site:

www.VisualTour.com
www.Postlets.com
www.Point2Agent.com

(Just to name a few that we use and have noticed)

These major companies have seen the value - so if you use any of these sites, check out www.FrontDoor.com  - your listings may already be there!

FrontDoor.com has been around awhile. I got on their mailing list months ago. It seems like everybody wants to own the buyer's and homeowner's eyeballs!

That's for sure. My website actually is syndicated with them and have received two leads in two months, pretty cool.

Thank you for the input. We haven't added a direct link there yet, but are keeping our eye on it. Here's a good site to give people a comparison of the different sites they may be considering.  Alexa.com

I will keep my eyes and ears open for this one to become available for the smaller independent brokerages.  Michael, thanks for the input on alexa.com.  I have not heard of this, but think it can be useful.
