SecondSpace Introduces Premium Online Services for Resort Community Developers, Master Brokers and Second Home and Land Specialists

Custom Micro-Sites, Premium Listing Features and Buyer's Agent Subscriptions Now Available to More Than 100,000 ResortScape.com and LandWatch.com Business Customers

BELLEVUE, WA--(Marketwire - June 18, 2008) - SecondSpace, Inc., operator of the leading online marketplaces for second homes and recreational retreats, today announced a range of premium services for developers, brokers and real estate agents marketing lifestyle communities, vacation homes, homesites and land for sale on the company's flagship ResortScape.com and LandWatch.com Web sites. The new services include custom micro-sites for lifestyle property developers; priority and featured listing placement for second home and land specialists; and buyer's agent subscriptions that enable REALTORS® in a given market to promote themselves at a city, county, state, province or country level to an audience of more than 8 million Web visitors and readers across the SecondSpace™ Lifestyle Affinity Network.

"With more than 650,000 amenity communities, second homes and land parcels now listed on ResortScape.com and LandWatch.com, we are seeing tremendous demand from business partners who wish to further showcase their developments, properties and second-home-finding services to drive more business," said Anil H.P. Pereira, founder and CEO of SecondSpace. "Our new customized sites for developers and master brokers, as well as premium features for buyer and seller agents, further expand the range of online marketing solutions available to the more than 100,000 business customers already active in our network."

The new premium services, available today, include:

--  Multi-Media Micro-Sites that enable developers and master brokers of
    amenity communities to integrate the "best" of their own Web sites--logos,
    marketing copy, photos, lot plans, home plans, video and marketing
    brochures--into the ResortScape.com marketplace, making these communities
    accessible to a far broader audience of Web visitors than any standalone
    Web site. For an example of one of these sites, please visit
    http://www.resortscape.com/The-Club-at-Spanish-Peaks.
    
--  Premium Features for Selling Agents, including priority sorting at the
    top of a consumer's search results; agent photos; Web site links; and
    separate "showcase" property listings across city, county, state and
    lifestyle property search results pages on LandWatch.com and
    ResortScape.com. Agents subscribing to premium services are now generating
    more than three times the leads of agents whose properties are classified
    under Basic Listings.
    
--  Buyer's Agent Subscriptions, which enable a REALTOR® to exclusively
    market themselves to out-of-region buyers across a range of city, county,
    state and lifestyle property search results pages on ResortScape.com and
    LandWatch.com.
    

"Since our inception four years ago, The Club at Spanish Peaks has been a premier private club community where families come to share an unparalleled recreational lifestyle experience," said Dean Genge, COO, The Club at Spanish Peaks. "Now, by integrating Spanish-Peaks.com into ResortScape.com, we're giving our families and the next generation of families a unique opportunity to find the wealth of amenities offered by The Club at Spanish Peaks."

SecondSpace's new premium online marketing services are available immediately. Resort developers, master brokers, international luxury home specialists and second home and land REALTORS® who wish to feature their properties on ResortScape.com, LandWatch.com or any of SecondSpace's international or co-branded Web sites can contact Sales@ResortScape.com or Sales@LandWatch.com for details and pricing information.
