How Homebuilders Can Leverage the NAR Settlement to Enhance Online Presence and Realtor Engagement

Posted 4.23.2024

The recent settlement involving the National Association of Realtors (NAR) marks a significant shift in the real estate industry. While it primarily spotlights realtors and compensation structures, these changes herald a new scope of opportunities for homebuilders.

For homebuyers and sellers, this settlement significantly enhances transparency and modifies the handling of real estate transactions. However, these changes present a strategic opening for homebuilders to attract realtors to their properties through streamlined and effective online accommodations.

Optimizing Websites for a New Era in Real Estate

With changes taking effect in June 2024, now is the ideal time for home builders to revisit and enhance their online platforms, ensuring they are attractive and functional for realtors. A key feature to consider is the integration of a realtor portal. This dedicated space on your website should offer all the tools and information realtors need to access home listings, incentives and commission details quickly. Such enhancements streamline the process for realtors and make your properties more appealing to them.

Creating a user-friendly realtor portal provides a clear, direct path for realtors to connect with your properties. Realtor Portals increase the likelihood of developing partnerships and sales and position your site as a go-to resource in an increasingly competitive digital marketplace.

Ranking Through Relevant Content on the NAR Settlement

With changes stemming from the NAR settlement, prospective homebuyers and realtors are seeking clarity and understanding of what these changes mean. This is where Rhoads Creative’s approach to blog writing comes into play—by focusing on high-volume search queries related to the NAR settlement, we can craft content that addresses these pressing questions, all while generating leads for your business online.

Our strategy involves identifying what people are asking online and creating content that is optimized to be found on search engines while providing valuable information by answering these questions. This approach builds your site’s authority and ensures that it ranks well for questions related to the NAR settlement. When interest is peaking, engaging with this topic now sets the foundation for increased visibility and engagement on your website.

Introducing Realtor Portals to Enhance Engagement

Introducing realtor portals on your website is more than just a feature—it’s a transformative tool for engaging with realtors more effectively. In the past, providing an online space with detailed information that a realtor needs to sell a home was not necessarily considered by the homebuilder, but today, the ability to directly connect and communicate with realtors through such portals is invaluable.

What Should A Realtor Portal Include?

A well-designed realtor portal should include functionality that allows realtors to register, access exclusive homes and view potential incentives. A portal facilitates a smoother collaboration and enhances the likelihood of attracting serious buyers through professional real estate agents. Additionally, incorporating real-time updates, notifications, and personalized dashboards can significantly boost realtor engagement and satisfaction.
