All Members of MAREI receive a Real Estate Investor Website with their membership where they can market their properties for sale. After activating the website members can then post their properties for sale and once posted the MAREI system will market the property for you by posting it on our website and it will go out on our Property Leads email and in our bi-weekly e-Update. Properties also get posted to the national RealEstatePromo.com page.
Because we have been seeing some really weird things coming through of late, we wanted to give you some pointers.
Be sure to use an address with the property listing
If you do not put an address in the system, it might come out on the websites without the proper information and it may not show up in our emails. Quite often listings without addresses get flagged as a fake listing and get removed. Be sure to use the correct address so the map feature will pull up the property correctly. Double check you picked the right state.
Be sure you have property rights to market
If you are a Realtor, you can market any property you have a valid listing on. If you own the property you can market the house. Where we get into problems is with our wholesale properties. We often see that one wholesaler owns the property but 3 other bird dogs are trying to find a buyer and all 3 posts it on our website. That causes problems and we will remove all listings. If you don’t own it but have it under contract, technically you can’t market the property you can, however, market the Contract on the property. (Contract on 123 Main Street)
Photos of the Property
We see many coming out with no photos or sideways photos. Those lacking photos did not take the extra step to upload the photos. Once property details are posted, the option is given to load photos, some miss that step. We suggest using landscape or the short wide photo. If you use a portrait or a tall thin photo, the system will turn it sideways and make your listing look weird.
Fill Out All the Boxes
As you put in the listing, make sure all the boxes are filled out and take note of how much text you can put in the box. If you look at the photo at the top, you will see that some people put in more information than others.
As you fill out the largest box of text, we suggest including your name and phone number OR if you have a different website that you put a lot of time and money into you might include it in the Headline Box so your website goes out on posts of the property.
The system will also post your property to the following national sites:
