LandHub, (https://www.landhub.com), a real estate marketing company, has launched its new land listing website. LandHub is a land listing and marketing platform that was launched in 2016 with the mission of efficiently connecting buyers and sellers in the dynamic real estate market. “We’re excited to re-launch a website that makes searching for land easier and less time-consuming. Buyers can set up free profiles and get alerts of new properties, and sellers can feed their listings directly to our portal where we’ll help market them on social media.
You keep hearing the buzz words CREtech (commercial real estate technology), REtech (real estate technology), PropTech or Proptology (property technology) and about all the venture capital flowing into these spaces. Many brokers feel that the Co-Star Group has created a monopoly with the purchase of most of the other land listing sites and our goal is to offer a more cost-effective platform with no long-term commitments,” said Kevin May, President, and CEO of LandHub.
