ListHub, the leading distributor of property listings in the U.S., announced a new agreement with ListGlobally, the largest network of real estate portals around the world, making ListGlobally the newest international advertising opportunity in the ListHub Global offering for brokers and agents in the U.S. The agreement now provides ListHub Global customers a network of 49 portals in 30 countries including new locations in Asia, Russia, Western Europe and South America.
ListHub, operated by Move, Inc., (NASDAQ: MOVE), launched ListHub Global in July 2013. With a network of more than 450 MLSs and 50,000 broker subscribers, ListHub allows brokers to swiftly and safely advertise their listings on the most visited real estate websites across the nation, and now around the globe.
“The ListGlobally network is a significant addition to our current offering, both in volume and in geographic coverage for international syndication,” said Luke Glass, general manager of ListHub. “International buyers are an ever-increasing presence in the U.S. market – not just in the major cities but also university towns and retirement destinations. Seen as a safe investment for foreigners, listing agents and brokers are now realizing that in order to have a truly complete marketing service for their sellers, they now must include international listing exposure.”
In addition to bringing international exposure to U.S. listings, the new agreement also provides ListGlobally portal network members around the world the opportunity to market an increasing number of active and accurate U.S. real estate listings to their local users interested in investing in U.S. real estate.
The ListGlobally service provides an international search tab on global real estate portals in a framed search experience, which also protects the listing broker’s data.
“ListHub is an invaluable resource for agents and brokers to market their listings on leading real estate search sites across the nation and now around the world. We are proud to become an integral part of their global offering and to assist U.S. agents in marketing their local listings to a global audience,” says Chris Vulovic, CEO of ListGlobally.
