Yes, Gen. Lee is right on about Homeseekers and Homes. They are completely seperated from the Realtor.com distribution.
Realtor.com pulls from just about every major mls board in the country. We do not place the listing on the Realtor.com website, we host and/or distribute VT links to the respective listing.
You can list on Yahoo for $50 and they will add it to their real estate section of their website. (a basic classified ad) but their primary real estate content comes from Prudential Real Estate.
I would not call Realtor.com a monopoly, it is just a "must have" if you are serious about being a VT provider in the U.S.. I would say that almost all real estate agents will not even bother with your services with out the distribution of Realtor.com
But lets get past Realtor.com, we are in the works of adding at least 5 more real estate portals to our distribution. Which means "ADDING THE ENTIRE LISTING, plus the VT link", the business is changing and we are trying to stay ahead of the game. Once we have implemented the sites into our website, we will give Easypano a formal announcement.
This will hopefully give our VT providers a step up from the competition while still remaining low in pricing.
