There is one easy way to add a lot of extra value to your real estate investing business for the future that many are overlooking and which could cost them dearly later on.
Anyone who has gotten into the real estate investing business in the last 10 years, and especially those who have jumped into the game more recently have no doubt found that trying to reserve a great Internet domain name can be difficult. Your web domain name is obviously extremely important and not only helps you to build a better brand but can go a long way towards helping you get found on the web and attract the best prospects.
Just finding a half decent domain name with the words ‘real estate’ or ‘homes’ in it today can be a tough mission. Obviously if you have enquired about buying a real estate investing related domain name from someone else you will have already discovered that in many cases they are asking thousands of dollars and in some instances tens or hundreds or thousands of dollars or even more. Many domains go for millions of dollars. Though some lucky winner was able to pick up RealEstate.mobi at an auction for just $85,000.
Obviously those who have purchased real estate investing related domain names for resale have made a killing, while those who have reserved them for their own use have built up a lot of value for their businesses which can be cashed in for big bucks in the future.
Of course this is an old game now. However where the opportunity lays for real estate investing companies now is in social media URLs. Of course there is only one facebook.com/ your custom URL. There is only one @Properties for Twitter, etc. Just think how valuable these custom URLs will be in a few years from now. Those who get them will not just attract a lot more traffic but be adding huge value to their real estate investing companies.
