Real estate experience
We have been investing in real estate since 2003 closing most types of transactions in single family houses – short sales, lease options, wholesaling, etc.
When we started investing in real estate, I looked for website companies so I could buy a website for my business. I was disappointed with all the investor websites I found on the market.
None of them provided an affordable, all in one solution that forms core to the success of any real estate investing business.
I therefore instructed my website developer to build one for my business, with laser targeted focus on core features that must be present in any good website.
We used this website in our real estate investing business until an investor friend saw it and was so amazed he asked if I could sell a copy to him. Other investors would love to have a product like this for their business!
This is how we started adapting it for sale to other investors and released the first version in February 2009, after being tested for 6 years.
In other words, our website business was an “accident” that has continued to wow a lot of investors, and build their businesses over the years.
So what qualities are important in a good website?
At the very least, I was looking for a website that offers the following qualities:
1) Lead generation
A good real estate investing website must be built from the ground up to actively attract leads from the internet. After all without leads, how do you make money?
A good website must bring you new business – PERIOD
It does not matter how beautiful your website is – if it does not bring more business for you and make you more money, then you are missing a vital piece of your success kit.
2) Direct response
A good website must also engage those leads to take action (sign up).
Once a visitor lands on your website, they are of no use if they click away within a few seconds, or if they do not either sign up or call you, or take an action that converts them to a client.
Once you get one of our websites, they come loaded with these features by default:
a) Capture instant attention
Each website is pre-loaded with a life-like, kind, friendly speaking model that commands instant attention without being aggressive.
A visitor feels comfortable and more at home with what you have to offer. These speaking models also serve to guide visitors to take action.
b) Present multiple opportunities for visitors to take action
Wherever the visitor happens to be on your website, you must always offer them the opportunity that serves their need.
These opportunities must offer compelling “baits” for them to sign up – such as the free Ebooks that come loaded on each website.
This means that they are just a simple click or phone call away from taking action at any time when they are on your website.
These calls to action must always be visible, easily accessible at all times and easy to take.
Of course in today’s market, all these features must be available on a regular computer, tablets and smart phones.
3) Automation and engagement
A good real estate website must have inbuilt features to nurture the people who sign up so they warm up enough to do business with you.
Our websites are built with unlimited follow-up autoresponders, and come loaded with friendly, carefully timed emails that are sent at pre-set intervals.
These emails provide useful content, as well as compel them to take action – in other words, to do business with you.
It has been proven over and over that it takes multiple exposures to and communication before someone warms up enough to do business with you.
Secondly, the websites are loaded with automated reminders that keep you well updated – every forgotten to do something crucial because of your busy schedule?
4) Easily Adaptable
When I started investing in real estate, I knew I would be making changes to my business constantly.
I needed a website that I could just adapt to my business model at any time.
That is why you receive a website that can be adapted with a few clicks to suit any real estate business model. When your business changes, you do not have to buy a new website, simply adapt the one you have.
Secondly our websites come with many customizable designs. You can have the exact look you need and still keep a website that works exactly as it is intended.
5) All in one real estate investing management solution
I was also looking for a website that is loaded with all the features I needed to run my entire business from my website.
Everything on our websites is controlled from a virtual back office, so simple you can run your entire business from your website even if you are new to computers.
There are so many features that it is almost impossible to list all of them.
Most likely if you can think of some feature you might need, it is already included.
The sustained excitement with which the websites were received on the market that continues every single day has made our resolve to remain on the cutting edge of technology providing the best websites for real estate investing on the market.
Some type of upgrade is always going on almost every day building new features and improving existing features to keep up with growing demand and changing internet and real estate trends.

Why would I need more than one real estate investor web site?
Obviously the needs of a motivated seller are very different from those of a person looking to buy a house.
A motivated seller is going through some real tough times and needs to get rid of their problem – their house. A successful web site for buying houses must do nothing short of providing targeted solutions for motivated sellers in a sensitive manner.
Winning the heart of a motivated seller so they can sell their house to you takes one key ingredient – they must be able to trust you. You must come out to them as someone who can solve their problems. Having a web site that specifically addresses just the solutions to their problems puts them in a position you must learn to love – they want only you to buy their house.
On the other hand, a house buyer is going through relatively better times than a motivated seller, sometimes looking for their dream home. These two people are worlds apart. Combining the buying and selling houses in the same web site would be killing the prospects of winning the hearts of the majority of potential sellers – and you will make less money as a result.
Similarly, how do you think a private money lender would like to land on the page where you solicit for motivated sellers?
Most likely they will click away
Some investors however prefer to combine buying houses, selling houses and seeking private money from the same web site.
This option is open if you choose to combine them.
Can I use third party autoresponders with my web site?
Yes, you can integrate ANY email autoresponder software solution with your website.
You can replace our default forms with code from your autoresponder service so your visitor is subscribed to your email list directly from your web site.
However, our websites come integrated with unlimited follow-up autoresponders. It is usually not necessary for you to pay for third party autoresponders, unless you already use one and decide to keep it..
Can I set automated autoresponder messages?
Yes, each website comes with in-built autoresponders, so you can set unlimited automated, timed messages for your sellers, Buyers List, Investors Buyers List and Cash Investors List.
You can also create your own custom forms and create you own autoresponders from the ground up.
Is the website compatible with Macintosh?
Yes, your website will be fully compatible with a Mac.
How do I make changes to my website?
Unlike other website companies, you do not have to keep requesting for help for most changes because our websites are so easy to run even if you are new to computers.
You can make almost any adaptational change you can think of and edit any content on the website. And if you are unable to do so, we can do it for you.
Our help section will also walk you through most of the things you need to do.
How many pictures can I upload with each listing?

Hosting And Domain Registration Questions
I already have a web site. Can I host it on my server?
Your website can be installed on your current hosting account as long as it meets system requirements. It is important to understand that even if your website can be successfully installed, server limitations imposed by your host may interfere with smooth operation of your website.
Lots of websites out there are simple informational websites that have little to no interactivity.
This is an interactive website that interacts with your visitors, with your prospects and buyers including sending emails, autoresponders and automated tasks, generating offers, PDFs, reports, etc. For this reason, it must be hosted on a server that does not impose restrictions. Unfortunately, you can only know of a server limitation once you stumble upon it, your hosting company website, profile or reviews will never cover this.
Please note that we have no control over your hosting account, and we cannot take resposibility for server related limitations that may hinder smooth operation of your website.
So, unless you understand HOSTING, do not order a hosting account from another company before you contact us
MySQL 5+ / PHP 5+, should support ioncube and have php configuration allow_url_fopen set to “on”.
It should also support script automation such as cron jobs for autoresponder automation.
Give us a call and we can show you an easy way to check if your current server is ready.
What do you charge for hosting?
Hosting fees are $19/month or $129/year. No long-term hosting commitments!
Current Hosting Special
$64.50 per year for unlimited hosting! Only applicable to yearly hosting.
This translates to just over $5/month.
Domain registration is not included in this discount.
Please add $15 for registering a domain – like MylocalHouseBuyer.com (if you don’t have one already)
This is a special unlimited web hosting package specifically for real estate investors web sites with all the resources you need to run your real estate investing business successfully without any worries.
I have a domain name. Can I use it for my website?
Yes, all you need is to point your domain to our servers if we host your website by changing “Domain Name Servers”. This is a simple process that takes a few minutes.
You do not have to transfer your domain; you simply point it where your website is hosted.
Of course, we will walk you through this. Our help section also covers this.
Do you register domain names?
Yes, once you place an order for your website, the second step is to order hosting. You can also register a new domain in this step.
We handle everything for you from domain registration, name servers, etc for your convenience.
Can I use multiple domains for my website?
You can even point each domain wherever you want.
Can I keep my current email address?
When you are hosted with us, you can create any number of email addresses for free.
If your domain is registered elsewhere (such as Godaddy), and you need to continue using the same domain name, we will need MX Records so that your email is still routed through your domain registrar even though we host your website.
How Secure is my data?
Unlike other real estate investing websites, each website is hosted in its own hosting account. As such, nobody has access to your website or data except you.
