Realtors can also increase listing volume by specializing in trading real estate as an additional service and attract this emerging niche of home swappers.

Mortgage brokers can be "swap-friendly" and specialize in generating mortgages for both parties in a trade.

Our agent services range from representing an entire metropolitan area to subscribing and receiving leads.

FAQs

As a Metro Page host, do I receive all fees for listings submitted in my metro area?
Unfortunately not. As mentioned earlier Metro Page by itself will not produce any revenue, unless you offer services, promote them, and collect fees. We are, however, working on the system that will be able to track which Metro Page generated a new paid listing, and once implemented we will be able to share the commission with the Metro Page hosts.
So then how do I exactly benefit from having the Metro Page?
  • 1. If you are a real estate professional then the Metro Page will serve as an excellent billboard for you to advertise your own specialized property trading services. We suggest advertising to list properties in the MLS as "for sale or trade" and offer your clients various marketing packages, i.e.:

    Full service brokerage where you place a listing in MLS and our website (remember you will have free unlimited listings)

    Hand-held marketing plan: perhaps you can charge to submit to our site and try finding a match for the client. Keep in mind that many people are computer illiterate, so you can charge a flat fee to advertise and search for their property match.

    Doc. Preparation Plan: you help the client to facilitate a swap by overseeing the contracts, mortgage process, and closings.

    You will have a short URL (e.g. www.goswap.org/yourcity) to which you will direct potential clients. Your listings (if any) will be linked as well. Having the Metro Page will add credibility and show all visitors that house trading is your niche.

    Differentiate yourself from the rest of the realtors

  • 2. If you are not a real estate professional, you can attract other real estate professionals to advertise their services on your page. You can charge them on monthly or yearly basis and we will help you to insert PayPal buttons. Please review ideas on how to profit from the page by clicking on "Not a real estate pro?" tab above.
Is the Metro Page exclusive?
Yes, we will not create any other page for the sane metro. You will be the host for as long as you pay the lease fees or prepay in advance. We give you 7 day notice prior to the listing expiration.
What if I don't have any listings for trade of my own?
You may still represent the area. We pre-fill the map with all current listings in your specified city. Any new listings will automatically appear on the map. In addition, your own listings will be linked to your profile and can be accessible under View My Listings.
Can I represent several metros or cities?
Yes. Each Metro Page comes with an approximate 25 mile radius. We offer $50 discount on each additional metro reservation, if prepaid for 6 months or more. This fee will be refunded after you register your 2nd metro.
