8 Great Real Estate Websites you Should Know in 2016!
According to experts in the real estate industry, 2016 is shaping up to be a good year for real estate investment. Referring to the US, Realtomag.com said that 2015 may have marked the best year for housing since 2007, “but the market will likely get even rosier in 2016…” That trend is true globally as well. According to realtytoday.com, in terms of the investment market, “it is expected that this year will belong to the real estate industry.”
This is all great news for anyone who has been following the real estate market or who is now interested in entering this market. More good news is that there are plenty of great online sites out there to help you invest.
Most people, even if they’re not avid followers of the real estate market, have heard of sites like Zillow, Trulia (M&A last year), Yahoo! Homes, and Redfin, which list homes and properties for sale in the US along with other data about purchasing homes, or Loopnet which lists commercial real estate, or Biggerpockets, an online real estate networking and information resource platform. Or perhaps you follow popular real estate blogs like GeekEstate.
One of the newest kids on the block, Estateya, is a real estate investment platform with a twist. Estateya not only has the marketplace to find properties, but we also make it possible to create or join syndicated investment projects, and we have the analytical tools to help you make the smart investment decisions. But that’s not all; Estateya is also a social site! You can follow properties and agents, comment on the feed, ask for advice, give advice, find services and deals, learn about real estate investing from our blog, and promote your projects and properties. In addition, Estateya is not limited to one marketplace. It’s global, so Estateya members can find or post deals from around the world. That means you can both find those deals in the hottest markets like Sydney, or New York, or London, and you can reach a wider market of investors who are searching for real estate investments.
While there are a number of factors that are pointing to a good year for real estate investment in 2016 such as stable economic conditions and low interest rates in core markets, there’s no doubt that all the online real estate platforms are also helping to fuel this trend. Sites like Estateya make real estate investment more open and understandable to an increasingly receptive and larger audience.
