Realtor.com's 2018 Housing Insights Showcase Opportunities for Builders at The NAHB International Builders' Show
Economic projections available at Builders Digital Experience booth ORLANDO, Fla., Jan. 9, 2018 -- Realtor.com® partnered with Builders Digital Experience (BDX) to deliver its unique housing economic insights to the builder community, releasing a special edition of its 2018 Housing Forecast today at The NAHB International Builders' Show®. Realtor.com® 's 2018 housing forecast highlights a growing economy and positive demographic trends, creating opportunities in the housing market despite the affordability challenges buyers will face from rising prices and mortgage rates. Key takeaways for builders in 2018 include: Entry-level home construction a huge opportunity – Entry-level homes will continue to see price gains due to the larger number of buyers who can afford them and more limited homes available for sale in this price range. Millennials anticipated to gain market share in all home price segments – With the largest cohort of millennials expected to turn 30 in 2020, their homeownership market share is expected to increase. As they age into peak family forming years, their top housing priorities will shift from proximity to urban life to more space and quality schools. Southern markets predicted to lead in sales growth – Strong economies and healthy building levels will help drive Southern markets to beat the national average home sales growth. Builders who can adapt to regulatory hurdles in more challenging Western markets will find that prices still outperform national average growth in this region. The tax bill is a game changer – With the passing of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, the wealth and income effect of tax cuts will likely stimulate demand and increased production in the short term, but could lead to fewer sales and impact prices negatively over time in markets with higher prices and property taxes. Be wary of economic capacity constraints as inflation will kick in and the Fed will more aggressively increment interest rate increases. "Our collaboration with BDX over the last eight years has enabled builders throughout the country to connect with millions of realtor.com® users," said Tricia Smith, senior vice president of channel sales and operations at realtor.com®. "We are proud to deliver our housing insights to the builder community at a time when many opportunities exist for the new construction industry." "Our relationship with realtor.com® gives our builders a significant advantage as they are marketing their homes," said Tim Costello, CEO of BDX. "From new home community listings to multiple advertising options, we are excited to give our clients the opportunity to connect to this qualified and active group of shoppers." A copy of the full realtor.com® 2018 Housing Forecast, is available at the BDX booth, West Hall W5071, from Jan. 9 - 11.

The Sky's the Limit as Realtors Gather in Chicago
CHICAGO (November 2, 2017) – The National Association of Realtors® kicks off its annual conference in Chicago today with a focus on education and opportunity. More than 20,000 Realtors® and guests from around the world are expected to attend the 2017 REALTORS® Conference & Expo, which runs through November 6 at McCormick Place convention center. Chicago hosted NAR's first ever annual conference in 1908, and this year marks the first time since 2001 that Realtors® will convene in the city for the meetings. The conference, themed "The Sky's The Limit," will feature more than 300 speakers at 100-plus conference sessions on a broad range of real estate issues, including brokerage management, innovation and business technology, affordability issues from inventory constraints, commercial markets, international real estate transactions, and tax reform's potential impact on real estate. "The conference provides a great opportunity to learn from and connect with other Realtors®, industry leaders and vendors from around the globe and to seek out information to better serve clients and grow their businesses," said NAR President William E. Brown, a Realtor® from Alamo, California and founder of Investment Properties. "Realtors ® will also be preparing themselves for the next industry opportunities and challenges, especially as Congress looks to tackle tax reform; while Realtors® support tax reform, it cannot happen by hiking taxes on millions of homeowners." During the week, conference attendees will hear from industry and political thought leaders, including Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist, who will share the latest outlook for residential and commercial real estate markets; National Association of Home Builders Chief Economist Robert Dietz, Federal Housing Finance Agency Senior Economist William Doerner, U.C. Berkeley Hass Real Estate Group Chair Ken Rosen, MSNBC political analyst Steve Schmidt, and JLL Chief Economist Ryan Severino. On Wednesday and Thursday, conference attendees will roll up their sleeves to lend a hand to Habitat for Humanity Chicago. Attendees will also have the opportunity to network with colleagues from 60 countries around the world and attend 15-minute presentations from country representatives and other experts about doing business across borders at the Global Real Estate Pavilion in the expo hall. The expo opens Friday, Nov. 3 at 3 p.m. and will feature more than 400 industry-leading companies showcasing the latest products and services from real estate software to home protection and warranties. The conference will also include several celebrity guest appearances. On Saturday, Nov. 5, attendees will have the chance to meet 23-time Olympic Gold medalist Michael Phelps at the NAR booth in the trade expo and later that evening hear from him at the conference's general session. Rock legend John Fogerty, leader of Creedence Clearwater Revival, will perform at a special attendee concert on Sunday, Nov. 5.

VoicePad to launch TeamPhone at Inman Real Estate Connect NYC
Louisville, KY – January 14, 2015 – VoicePad, a leading provider of lead-generating mobile and Telecom technology to the real estate industry, will debut its latest product, TeamPhone™, in Manhattan at Inman Real Estate Connect NYC January 27-30, 2015. TeamPhone is the first cloud-based, automated phone solution for real estate teams that leverages the power of the MLS to generate "leads at the curb," while also intelligently routing those leads and inbound calls to team members. Attendees at the industry's leading technology conference will be able to visit the VoicePad kiosk for hands-on product demos and to meet with VoicePad representatives, including CEO and VoicePad founder Randall Standard. "We built this exclusive technology with this goal in mind — to help the growing number of real estate teams be more productive and more responsive to consumers' needs," said Standard. "Agents gravitate toward teams to get to the next level in their careers," added Standard. "But in order to be profitable, they need to be centralized, automated, and always available. Using an MLS-driven phone system as a hub allows real estate teams to establish themselves as an autonomous, highly-responsive and efficient group. And it allows agent teams to reach consumers when they are most ready to talk – at the curb in front of a For Sale sign – routing that ready and willing consumer directly to a team member for immediate engagement." TeamPhone provides the industry's only virtual mobile assistant designed exclusively for real estate teams. The system, which is integrated with local listing data, delivers automated property information, generates leads, and automatically routes calls to team members using simultaneous ring. Its features – a phone tree with team directory, branded payment calculator, voicemail, and fax delivery — provide options for customization. TeamPhone also features a branded mobile site for the real estate teams, giving consumers the ability to perform interactive GPS searches, access IDX property information, listen to auto-narrated property tours, create an account to save favorite properties, plus call or text teams directly. TeamPhone works with all mobile devices: No hardware requirements or software to install. "Announcing this product at Inman Connect is the perfect place to showcase TeamPhone as it has become the birthplace for exciting and innovative real estate technologies," said Standard. "If you are a member of a real estate team coming to Inman Connect, or a smaller brokerage that could also benefit from this service, we want to see TeamPhone for yourselves," Standard said. "We'll demonstrate how this innovation will not only boosts your team's efficiency and leads, but how it also changes the quality of the follow-up protocol. Tracking web leads by phone number and name means you'll never look at your web marketing strategy the same again." VoicePad representatives will be available onsite at Inman Real Estate Connect NYC in kiosk D-19. For more about TeamPhone, please visit http://voicepad.com/IntroducingTeamPhone. About VoicePad VoicePad is the real estate industry's premier source for lead-generating mobile and Telecom technology.

Visit Homes.com at Inman Connect & Succeed in 2013!
If you're going to be at Inman Connect New York this week, make sure to stop by the Homes.com booth to connect with our tech expert Joe Sesso to learn how to grow your real estate business in 2013 by partnering with us and allowing us to analyze your social media presence. Joe Sesso will be speaking at the beginning of two agent focused sessions on Thursday – don't miss "Turning Data into Business" from 2:55-3:40 pm and "Video, Photos, and Words: How to Master the Medium That's Right for You" from 3:45 – 4:30 pm. Right after Joe's intro, catch our very own Andy Woolley on an informative panel, "Overcoming the MLS Hurdle: How to Get the Data and Get to Market." Did you know that in a recent report by RealTrends, Homes.com ranked number one above all other competing real estate sites for delivering monthly referrals? Furthermore, 91% of all those who visit Homes.com in search of their next home purchase do not currently have a relationship with a real estate professional. This means that, as a partner with Homes.com, you'll be exposed to extensive opportunities to capture leads and cultivate new business. Joe will be able to talk with you on a personal level in order to help you succeed with Homes.com in light of these encouraging findings. Another way Homes.com and Joe Sesso can help you grow your business this year is by helping you get a handle on your social media presence with Social Impact. This new and innovative program, built and supported by the talented Homes.com team, is the first real estate centered online reputation management system. To get the skinny on Homes.com and Social Impact, don't forget to swing by the Homes.com booth at Inman Connect. You could also win a prize! If you can't attend, don't worry – we'll be live tweeting the entire event! Be sure to follow us on Twitter at @HomesPro.
