Using iPods To Sell Homes: New Podcast Service for Real Estate Agents Launches
NewHomePodcast.com makes reaching the iPod nation a snap for Realtors™ and real estate agents, and provides a one-stop shop for relocation and home buying information for buyers, all via the power of podcasting.
(PRWEB) November 15, 2005 -- David Lawrence, award winning network broadcaster and podcasting personality, unveiled a revolutionary podcasting "service bureau" for real estate agents today.
Speaking at the Podcast and Portable Media Expo, in a session entitled Creating the Commercial Connection: Speaking to Vendors, Customers, and Consumers via Podcasting, Lawrence took the wraps off of http://NewHomePodcast.com, a powerful and elegant way for real estate professionals to reach home buyers via the power of podcasting.
"An agent can simply pick up the phone, talk with me for 10 minutes, and speak to potential clients about local real estate news, demystifying sometimes scary home buying terms and concepts, and walking us through their spotlight addresses," Lawrence explained. "It all gets packaged in an easy to listen to, highly produced podcast that I host and that the real estate agent stars in." The podcast appears on both the NewHomePodcast site and the agent's own home page.
Within minutes of the recording session, the podcast is available to MP3 player-toting buyers, all hungry for any information on available homes in their desired area. "Those home buyers will also find a treasure trove of information at NewHomePodcast.com that will help them find the home of their dreams, and buy it with confidence," said Lawrence.
Agents reserve zip codes on a yearly basis, and air at least one podcast per month. Lawrence noted, "Podcasting has changed the way people get information and entertainment in a very short time. When looking for a home in this highly competitive seller's market, any advantage a home buyer has can mean the difference between getting just the right home and months of further searching. For real estate agents, many of whom embraced the Web very early on, podcasting represents yet another way to communicate with savvy buyers and to increase their profile in the real estate community."
http://NewHomePodcast is officially open for business, and has already has over 200 zip codes reserved by real estate professionals. Their first client, Javiera Garcia, said "I listen to David's radio show here in the [San Francisco] Bay area, and was thrilled that he said yes to helping me out with my podcast." Lawrence noted that three listeners called within 24 hours wanting his services producing podcasts, and NewHomePodcast.com was born.
