US based website theupturn.com will soon launch what it calls a “real estate matchmaking service”.
Members of theupturn.com are asked to fill out detailed profiles of their housing needs and desires, which are then used to find matching properties. Results are sent to members via email as well as websites such as Facebook and LinkedIn. If available, YouTube videos and Flickr images are also incorporated into matching listings.
The website is currently available in private beta, and parent company The UpTurn, Inc. has just begun trading its common stock on the over the counter markets.
In a statement, CEO Jeffrey M. Eckman outlined the motivation behind the website:
“The UpTurn, Inc. is a vigorous and progressive company that is positioned to thrive even during the current market conditions. With the real estate beginning to show signs of turning around and interest rates at record lows, we couldn’t have picked a better time to launch.”
