FT. LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwired - Apr 15, 2014) - Nestbuilder.com, the online real estate video channel of RealBiz Media Group (OTCQB: RBIZ), released its "new look" consumer website after completing a 90 day "Beta." The redesigned site allows consumers a simpler viewing experience and more functional search and with enhanced speed, improved video display, maps, blogs, real estate news, and consumer share and save features. Additionally, Nestbuilder will incorporate video advertising through its previously announced ad insertion program with Nativo. The site is now showcasing 2 million homes with the majority of listings being enhanced with video by RealBiz's patented video creation technology. This "new look" of the consumers' site boasts the largest video home listing content available on-line in North America.
The biggest winner in the "new look" is the real estate industry, which is now realizing Nestbuilder has an agent-only platform that includes a virtual office and a host of marketing tools designed to reach the consumer directly in order to boost their business. Unlike other real estate sites, Nestbuilder.com encompasses both consumer and real estate agent platforms.
Nestbuilder Agent has been pre-populated with over 350,000 agent pages ready to be claimed by real estate agents and brokers so that they can begin their personalized video marketing solution. Initially agents will receive a 45-day free trial of services and can then opt to use enhanced agent platforms ranging from $10 to $50 per month. The site provides enhanced services that include advanced social searches; video listings, agent mobile apps, and the Home and Away Club, all of which are all launching this quarter.
Nestbuilder Agent has been purposely designed to capture business from a segment of the real estate industry that is all but forgotten by other on-line platforms. Over 800,000 agents that do not have listings are expected to benefit by marketing themselves and their services on Nestbuilder Agent.
