Bouncepad Launches Free Text Message Service for Realtors

INDIANAPOLIS, IN--(Marketwire - July 11, 2007) - Bouncepad, a leading mobile marketing service for the real estate industry, is announcing the launch of a new service which offers realtors, brokers, and associations the benefit of using Bouncepad for free.

Bouncepad offers a unique property marketing service that uses text messaging and mobile-friendly websites that allow any potential buyer with a cell phone to get the info they want, when they want it. Listing agents nationwide can track visitors and activity, respond to requests, and more. The newest version, which includes a number of new features and benefits, offers Realtors and Brokers the opportunity to use a basic version of Bouncepad for free. In addition to the free version Bouncepad will continue to offer a full-features 'Pro' version for a low monthly rate.

Regardless of the version being used, Bouncepad provides text messaging access and a mobile friendly website to deliver property info, pricing, contact details, property photos, and more. Listing agents can track activity and print reports gaining vital statistics. In addition, Pro customers have access to advanced features and can respond to leads immediately.

"There are more than 230 million wireless subscribers in the US," said co-founder Brian Luerssen. "Now every agent in the country can list their properties and gain access to this growing population of potential buyers, for free." In fact, more individuals own a mobile phone than a personal computer, making mobile device access highly relevant for buyers and sellers in the real estate industry.

Potential buyers can view info on a specific home or property by sending a text message or by visiting a website optimized for their mobile phone. Displayed information includes a quick summary, property details, seller/agent contact info, photos, and more. Potential buyers can even request a property showing or more details via email. Bouncepad is free to use, but standard data or sms rates may apply, depending upon the individual's wireless service plan.

In addition, Bouncepad continues to offer the ability for Brokers and Realtor/MLS associations to expand their reach into the mobile arena and integrate the technology into existing systems while maintaining their current brands and websites.
