Traditionally, real estate agents would publish their listing in home buyer publications, on television, and in monthly newsletters that may distribute throughout the area that they represent.
Now real estate agents can easily post their listings online to attract a more global audience. Having an online real estate website can benefit you in two ways : (1) increased exposure for your real estate listing, and (2) increased exposure for your services.
There are two ways that you can approach this type of business.
As a real estate agent you cannot possibly represent the interest of homebuyers on a national level, but you can provide other real estate agents with the opportunity to publish their real estate listings on your site. You can then earn commission from each sale made resulting from a referral from your site.
This is an easy way to earn additional income from your real estate business.
