Tips for Using the Web

Buying and Selling Real Estate Online

By Clay Hathorn

Aiming to appeal to a metropolitan New York clientele, Donna White figured that a two-line
newspaper ad to sell her suburban house that basically said "3-bdr in Aberdeen, New Jersey"
seemed a little flat. So she dressed up her marketing a bit, listing the house in an online
service with a Web-site ad that begins this way: "Pristine custom contemporary with water
views: Lounge as sailboats pass this custom ranch with professional landscaping, diagonal
tongue-and-groove cedar siding."

Even if you're unclear about the "diagonal tongue-and-groove" (a way of fitting the siding
together), the place sounds pretty swanky, huh? "That's what's great about marketing on the
Internet," says White, who lives in Deerfield, Florida. "You're not limited in what you can
say. You can write up the character of the house. Show a picture. Where else could you put an
ad like that and have exposure to anyone, anywhere? It would cost a fortune."

Prospective buyers worldwide can view Donna White's three-bedroom house, for sale on the WWW.




White is one of the growing number of people turning to the World Wide Web to help them buy
or sell a house. The reasons to try the Web are numerous: Sellers can provide many more
enticing details ("lounge as sailboats pass") at a much lower cost than in newspaper ads and
can reach people anywhere; buyers can explore real estate options at their convenience on
their own computer.

But don't get the wrong idea: Although the Internet offers many options for real estate, it's
probably not wise for a seller to rely solely an Internet listing or for a buyer only to
peruse the Web for homes. Not only is the Internet still a secondary source for most buyers
and sellers, but the Web lacks the emotional wallop needed to bring about a home sale.
"Nobody buys a house from a brochure," says Jody Lane, who runs the Realty Locator site, an
online listing of homes for sale. "It's the same thing on the Internet."

Yet as a supplement to marketing or a great way to find homes, the Web is proving to be a
valuable medium. "It's a good tool to use with other advertising," says White. "Not everyone
in the whole world is computer literate. But on the Web you're open to the whole wide world."

Selling

So for home sellers who are willing to try the Web, what's next? Well, you have two broad
options: enlisting an agent or selling the home yourself. The Web is making more attractive
the "for-sale-by-owner" option, known as FSBO (or, as those with the lingo say, "fizzbo").
Traditionally, roughly 15 to 20 percent of home sellers go this route, mostly to avoid the
6-percent commissions of real estate brokers. The trade-off is that FSBOs have had to market
their property without access to the local multiple listing service (MLS), which is
proprietary to real estate agents (although this is beginning to change). FSBOs have
traditionally relied on newspaper ads and lawn signs to get the word out.

But the Web's capability to reach people has opened new marketing avenues for FSBOs. Probably
the most comprehensive FSBO site is the Abele Owners' Network site, which "looks good enough
to give agents a run for their money," says Kiplinger's Personal Finance Magazine. FSBOs can
list their homes on the site under several plans: high-cost is $105, the low-cost is free. By
comparison, listing your property with a broker will typically cost 3 percent of the selling
price -- several thousand dollars on the average home. To list property on the Owners'
Network site, sellers write a description of the property in a text file -- no knowledge of
HTML is required, but a flair for the descriptive is encouraged ("pristine custom
contemporary . . ."). Sellers can also submit a photograph of the property, either a
digitized image by e-mail or regular picture by post.

In addition, the Owners' Network provides resources for FSBOs, including links to brokers,
agents, and others who help handle many aspects of the whole real estate ordeal -- from
hosting open houses to coordinating the closing -- for a flat fee. "It's a great way to take
advantage of the marketplace," says White, who listed her New Jersey home in the Owners'
Network and received an offer from a person who discovered the property online (she didn't
sell). "It gives people an opportunity to dial up and see a picture of the house," she says.

If you sign an agreement with a broker, chances are that the agreement will be exclusive,
meaning you can't market the property the FSBO way. Your agent will list the house in the
local multiple listing service (MLS), which is computerized but not necessarily on the
Internet. But that doesn't mean you can't have a nifty Web site to help sell your home. Many
companies, agents, and local MLSs have a presence on the Web. The biggest broker-run sites
(discussed below) have tens of thousands of listings.

However, these sites are not comprehensive, and many homes won't automatically be listed. If
that's the case, you could encourage your agent to get access to the Web. Or you could list
your property with a site that takes such listings. HomeScout, one of the Web's largest real
estate sites, has a service called Home on the Web that allows a seller to submit information
on their property, including how to contact the broker.

A Buyer's Market

For those of you looking to buy real estate, the Web offers many choices and timesaving
features. You can search for homes across town or across the hemisphere. Several sites offer
thousands of detailed listings, plus photographs and even information on communities and
schools nearby. The sites mentioned in this article all feature searchable indexes -- just
plug in the city, the size of the house, and the price range, and the search engines will
divulge which homes meet those criteria.

With Realty Locator, for example, you can call up one of 21 U.S. metropolitan areas to obtain
a wealth of real estate information, including such related information as a profile of local
schools. Additionally, the site has more than 100,000 real estate links in 10,000 U.S. cities
and towns. HomeScout, compiled by the Cobalt Group, a multimedia company in Seattle,
Washington (U.S.A.), has gathered information from 260 databases to provide users with
information on more than 500,000 homes.

CyberHomes, which has agreements with multiple listing agencies in cities and counties across
the country, places thousands of listings; the National Association of Realtors takes the
multiple listings from realtor associations nationwide to offer thousands of home listings;
and the Owners' Network is the best place to search the FSBO market for homes that even an
agent might not be aware of. And who knows? Some of them may even have water views.

Wait . . . I just remembered, I dreamt about Devin's blog last night. I went to his website and Geno had
redesigned it with a prison motif (?!?). It was very dark and rustic with a chain link fence background. And I
was a little annoyed because all of Erin's entries were replaced by some guy named Neil.

Watched Lord of the Rings last night. Have definitely changed my original opinion. Film appreciation for me is,
really, just all about mood. Am I sitting in a comfortable chair? Do I have a heating pad readily available for
any physical ailments? Is my girlfriend sitting next to me cracking bad jokes? I watched it (mostly) by myself
while C. was out and found it actually to be a pretty good movie.

By the way, C. did come home and watched it for a little while too and also (somewhat) changed her mind about it
too. It seems she just dislikes the whole fantasy movie thing altogether ( I refuse, REFUSE to say genre today).
Reason? Too unrealistic.

Is it just me, or is that really funny?

On another note, boycott is over and so is pity party. Sorry for the interruption.

From joe-rabie@well.com
Sat Nov 23 '02 (16:57)

Here is the result of some six months of labour, that is "officially"
going online tonight:

INAUGURATION

Today is the inauguration of the "Over My Dead Body" project. You are
cordially invited to participate - if, of course, you identify yourself
with the project's goals.

The "Over My Dead Body" project is an online, virtual demonstration,
politicising the major themes of globalisation and the economy, the
environment, etc. The federating platform is the promotion of "the
politics of generosity" to unblock the stranglehold of corporate and
nationalist self-interest upon the world's destiny.

People are invited to participate, and are represented symbolically in
the demonstration by their name, place of residence, and if they so
wish, photo, and virtual placard. Thus people from the four corners of
the globe may fraternise and march together.

The site also contains a section called "The State of Things", which
presents an evolving portrait of the world today. The "About" section
contains the project Manifesto, and other information.

If you agree with what the project represents - come join the demo
with us! And please forward this message to your family, your friends,
your colleagues. The presence of each person is important: a trickle
becomes a torrent that becomes a tidal wave, rolling for change.

http://www.mailinater.com/mailinator/index.jsp

ave you ever gone to a website that asks for your email address? (haven't we
all). You know that the moment you type it in, it is streaming across the
net on its way to every spam database in the world. You simply can't be that
careless with your personal email address.

What if there was a website that any and every email address you can think
of already exists. And you use any one you like, anytime you like - just by
thinking one up.

Welcome to Mailinator. It's like super-instant, always-ready, any-email-
you-want email. Right now. It's your personal disposable email account. Here
is how it works: You are on the web, at a party, or talking to your favorite
insurance salesman. Wherever you are, someone (or some webpage) asks for
your email. You know if you give it, you're gambling with your privacy. On
the other hand, you do want at least one message from that person. The
answer is to give them a mailinator address. You don't need to sign-up. You
just make it up on the spot. Pick schminky@mailinator.com or
funwump123@mailinator.com pick anything you want.

Later, come to this site and check that account. Its that easy. Mailinator
accounts are created when mail arrives for them. No signup, no personal
information, and when you're done you can walk away an instant solution
to one way spammers get your address. It's an anti-spam solution for
everyone. Your temporary email account will be automatically deleted for you
after a few hours.

Let'em spam.
