    I have a long standing relationship with a real estate broker in Central Florida. Any leads in Tampa, Orlando and vicinity will be worked directly for 5-9% sales commissions, any leads outside of the area (Miami, Jacksonville, Naples, Sarasota, Tallahassee, Gainesville, etc) will be sent to Century 21 for a 75/25 split on the commissions.

    The site I've created focuses solely on new home builds. New home communities typically pay double to triple the commission of a standard MLS listing. The site I've created features homes from over 50 of Florida's top home builders. The properties span over 300 communities in over 60 Florida cities. We are focused entirely on the state of Florida.

    To get the new home data, I had to hire a data scraper to scrape over 30 builder and community websites. I also hired a developer to heavily customize the site so that it was ideal for SEO. The site has the following features:

    1) Directory of Florida home builders
    2) Directory of Florida cities
    3) Directory of Florida new home communities
    4) Directory of Florida zip codes
    5) Over 10,000 property listings in the DB, and a cron job which posts 1 new property every 5 minutes to the live site (site naturally growing for first 90 days)


    I have worked out a 50/50 revenue share with the broker. I have a notarized revenue share agreement/promissory letter defining the terms of our JV. I am looking to split my share 50/50 with an SEO expert who can get the site ranking for around 1000 keywords. The keywords we'd want to target are:

    Index page:
    florida new homes
    new homes in florida
    buy new home in florida
    buy new florida home
    florida new homes for sale

    Each City Page:
    $city new homes
    new homes in $city
    buy new home in $city
    $city new homes for sale

    Each Builder Page:
    $builder
    new homes by $builder
    $builder new homes
    $builder new florida homes
    $builder florida homes
    $builder homes for sale

    Each Community Page:
    $community
    $community new homes
    $community homes for sale
    $community for sale

    Each Zip Code Page:
    $Zipcode new homes
    new homes in $Zipcode
    homes for sale in $zipcode

    Then of course the goal would be to get each of the actual property listings ranking as well eventually as the link juice trickles down to the third layer.
    We can't churn and burn on this site, this is a long term venture that can make millions if done right.

    Example revenue share for a Lennar property in Tampa:

    Sale price: $650k.
    Broker's Sales Commission: 7% ($45,500)
    Our commission: $22,750

    If we do this right we can generate hot leads every day which will undoubtedly lead to 50+ sales a year. This is a golden opportunity.

    The site is ready and very minimal SEO work has been completed so far, just some relative guest blogging and such. I am not listing the site in this thread to protect the integrity of the site. If you're interested in working together let's talk!

    I'm not against it but I do think a long term strategy is smartest and safest for everyone involved... The longer this site ranks is the more money there is to be made...

    Interested but wouldn't the broker be splitting that 7% 50/50 with the buy side? So in reality, he's only getting 3.5% and you're getting 50% of that (1.75% - $11,375 vs. the $22,750 claimed). Still not bad but wanted clarification.
