Win-Win Relationships for Everyone

House Hunters, REALTORS(R) and Lenders Join Forces to Forge Win-Win Relationships at MyHomeThing.com

SUGARLAND, Texas, Aug. 10, 2006 – Three is the magic number when it comes to buying a house.

Home buyers, REALTORS and mortgage lenders all need each other and, generally, none of the three parties can be successful without the others.

At http://www.MyHomeThing.com, the online marketplace for home buyers and real estate professionals, all three players in the home-buying process help each other accomplish their respective goals.

For home buyers, the site offers a real estate quote service that matches consumers with up to four local REALTORS and mortgage lenders who can help them find and purchase their dream homes.

“I completed a short app. and within minutes I got a few calls and within four weeks I had closed on my first home,” said Dave McCarthy, a MyHomeThing.com customer from Merced, Calif.

Home buyers who visit MyHomeThing.com and submit contact information and a description of their home-buying parameters will be contacted by one to four companies that have been pre-screened by the site. Home buyers are then able to consider their options and negotiate directly with agents and lenders.

MyHomeThing.com has partnerships with more than 1,000 real estate companies and mortgage firms that pay the site to receive sales leads.

“Visiting our site is really a risk-free proposition for homebuyers -- we don’t ask for any sensitive personal information, and they can walk away from the process at any time,” said Mehran Tabatabayee, CEO of Myhomething, LLC. “Basically, visiting our site is a quick and easy way for homebuyers to find serious professionals who want to earn their business – after all, they’re paying us for the lead.”

Tabatabayee added that the site calls back agents and lenders who request to be added to the site’s vendor database to verify their service offerings and explain how MyHomeThing.com works.

“Homebuyers who visit our site can essentially let agents and lenders come to them instead of going out to track them down,” Tabatabayee said.

For REALTORS and lenders, MyHomeThing.com acts as a cost-effective source of qualified local leads.

“We were first skeptical to register with MyHomeThing, but we eventually did and purchased 11 leads in June and since then have closed on five -- exceptional bargain,” said Daniel Walker, a MyHomeThing.com vendor from Houston.

REALTORS and lenders can essentially use MyHomeThing.com to grow their client bases efficiently, expand their vital professional networks and close new business.

“We give all them all the details they need to contact and pitch people who are very warm leads – in other words, people actively looking for a new house,” Tabatabayee said. “For real estate professionals, the site is basically a pool of hot prospects waiting to be called by someone.”
