You know about The Unlisted, and Facebook Friends, the private real estate social networks we have told you about here on CandysDirt.com… and will continue to tell you about. We think there is such a presence and need for off-market listings that essentially a whole second market is being created. Most of these properties are selling at the highest end of the market, where sellers are more concerned with knowing who is touring the property than getting the largest number of buyers through the door — what MLS has traditionally done. Because of low housing inventory, these sellers are not shortchanging their pricing, either. It’s a matter of speed: agents want to get the word out quickly, and guess what can do that? Technology!
Today a new site launches called HipPocket, the brain child of Dallas broker extraordinaire Clay Stapp and James Bohan-Pitt. How cool is this: the company was just featured in Tech.co. and scored as the hottest local startup. Fourteen startups strutted their stuff at The Dallas Entrepreneurial Center to more than 100 people — HipPocket & HedgeChatter snagged the titles of Hottest Startups in Dallas! Hip Pocket is so easy to use — when I played with it I had my home listed in about 30 seconds. Plus the software allows for commentary on the property, sharing, and instantaneous agent contact.
