Using Group Buy Sites For Real Estate

I came across an article on Inmannews that piqued my interest. It was discussing gaining new clients by using “Group Buy” sites (Groupon, Living Social, Etc.) that would offer deals such as $1,000 cash back at closing. Apparently these site are hesitant to allows such deals, and I’m not sure I blame them. While it sounds awesome from a marketing stand point (I use Groupon frequently and I have definitely seen the effects on business it has when I go to spend them) I’m not sure how receptive people would be to use a coupon on their purchase of a home. With more involved purchases consumers want more information and, with the limited time given to decide on buying a Groupon, I don’t think it’s enough time for buyers to find everything they need to make a well-informed decision.

Whether or not you think the world is ready for real estate coupons, you can check out the full article on Inmannews.

Real Estate is Going Green

It seems like green technology is all over these days; real estate is no exception. Buyer’s want to save money and the environment with energy-saving features such as solar panels, tankless water heaters, energy-saving appliances, extra insulation, drought-resistant landscape, heat exchangers for fireplaces, whole-house fans, even ceiling fans, and reflective tinting on windows. According to Realty Times, many new construction builders are turning their focus on making homes with solar panels and other utility-saving technology to entice as many buyers as possible. There is even a specialty FHA loan, the “Energy Efficient Mortgage Program”, that allows all energy-efficient improvements to be financed into the mortgage. And CNN says, “Sustainable construction is one of the fastest-growing segments of the already-red-hot commercial-building industry.” So whatever segment of the market you are in, going green can make an important impact.
