Forbes has an article with the identical title posted a few days ago comparing different US markets and what one gets for a million bucks.
I'd like to start a project here on ActiveRain calling all of you who have a property at this price point ($1 million +- 5%) to post it on RealBird for free. Let's enhance the article with real, for sale listings, maybe Forbes will give us (all of us) some link love for our efforts. Once we have 1,000 such listings in our database, we - at RealBird - will create a mashup and also a widget for all of us to share.
Who is in?
If you are, than do the following:
- Register at RealBird (for free) or log into your existing account
- Enter your $1M residential listing and publish it (needless to say, make sure you have the right to do so, as we syndicate them all over the web)
- Leave a comment below with your RealBird link embedded to show that you are participating (and to get some more SEO juice) and to encourage others to participate as well
- Once we reached the 1,000 property mark ($1M +-5% residential) , we'll make the mashup and the widget public so that you can co-market each others listing
This is a research endevour but with real listing data, so please post valid listings. Added benefit for you of course is that you market your property in the process. You may even win new listings by sharing this project with your friends and prospects. Also, share with your real estate network as well.
(Of course, RealBird is available for marketing all other type of listings. It's free. Go check it out)
