Zaggers.com was originally designed to be a virtual tour site for agents and even though we excel at that I soon realized that the site had become much more. As a real estate agent in Florida I was constantly battling those mega-sites for top search positions in my own market. I knew other agents across the country were facing the same delima. How could I, a local agent with just a few thousand listings in my MLS compete with sites like Zillow and Trulia that had access to millions of listings. These sites would knock me off the front page of the search results simply because of the volume of listings they had even though I would have been a better resource for the clients. Don't get me wrong, I actually had much better than average results but still it was frustrating.
My wife's company wanted her to relocate to California and I saw this as an opportunity to put my knowledge to work and help other agents with a way to get more business. I have created two opportunities for agents and trust me you will greatly benefit from these regardless of the level of service you choose to use. Many agents will choose to use just the standard membership and simply add their own listings and create virtual tours. I have a list of the benefits for this below. You can definitely set yourself apart and get more listings using this service. Sellers want to work with an agent that is doing more to market their home and virtual tours are a great way to do this.
The real benefit of Zaggers will come to those agents that choose to use what I am going to call the Gold Membership. With the Gold Membership you will be able to include all the listings from your MLS. Don't worry I will take care of setting everything up for you and we will only be required to sign a couple of forms that your MLS provider will need. Once those listings are on Zaggers.com they will be updated throughtout the day so that the information will always be up to date. When a customer searching for a home on Zaggers.com pulls up the listings in your area your contact information will be included on every one of the listings that we downloaded from your MLS. Instead of having your information on a few listings on those other mega-sites you can be getting leads from thousands of listings that have been provided by agents all throughout your area. When you start combining that with agents across the nation that have also signed up we will form our own site that will be able to compete with even the biggest mega-site out there. This will be a major benefit in getting both buyers and sellers. I will even work with you to develop a local page providing information about yourself and your area.
You can sign up right now for free for either service Standard or Gold. If you choose the Gold Memembership your MLS provider will have some forms that we will be required to sign to authorize the IDX information but I will be happy to assist you in getting anything you need.
