They have a ways to go, it's true. The crowds don't form until the thing has gone live, to show what it really has to offer.

UpTurn Inc. (UPTR.PK): Social Networking and the Real Estate Market

The UpTurn Inc. is developing an innovative online real estate matchmaking exchange and social networking site where real estate market participants are matched with each other, based on their individual profiles and intended roles in the market. The company’s site serves would-be buyers and sellers, real estate professionals, and others.

The UpTurn was started by M.I.T. Sloan Business School graduate Jeff Eckman. Mr. Eckman founded Blue Green Ventures in 2008 after 15 years of experience in the technology, media, and healthcare industries. This groundbreaking venture – The UpTurn – has established a Web 2.0 real estate business model. The company is moving to become a key player in this rapidly growing industry, which has been in part fueled by the housing crisis.

The UpTurn does face competition in this rapidly-growing sector. However, the company’s competitors do not offer the match component of social networking that TheUpTurn.com has. The UpTurn will match buyers and sellers, renters and landlords, etc. through profiles based on every criteria imaginable: number of bedrooms, bathrooms, square footage, shopping locations, school preference, cultural activities, etc.

The UpTurn anticipates completing future partnership deals with the following: the National Association of Realtors, TheMLS.com, Flickr, YouTube, MySpace, Facebook, and LinkedIn. Hoping to become as successful as other social networking sites such as Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn, the company has its aim set on generating substantial revenues while intelligently bringing the real estate community closer together.

True. Any time a technology comes along that makes an industry run smoother, it ultimately helps the economy and jobs, even though some job adjustments are inevitable on the front end.

Well, they're still in development. But there certainly is a need, and it looks like they are headed in the right direction.

The UpTurn, Inc. (UPTR.PK) Chooses Thoughtbot to Accelerate Development

The UpTurn, Inc. announced last month that it has engaged Thoughtbot, a technology consulting firm that provides web application development and design services, to help with UpTurn’s real estate site matching platform. The UpTurn, Inc. is a Massachusetts startup currently in the process of putting together a revolutionary online real estate marketplace and social networking site, designed to more effectively match people with effective real estate solutions, based upon individual profiles, needs, and offerings.

The UpTurn plans to serve all primary residential real estate stakeholders, including buyers, sellers, renters, owners, and anyone with an interest in real estate, along with professionals such as agents and brokers. In addition, the company will directly or indirectly serve the home improvement industry, the mortgage industry, banks, legal, inspectors, contractors, and other real estate-dependent economies.

Thoughtbot is known for creating dynamic content management systems and consumer driven applications, and will help develop the underlying software for UpTurn using a Ruby on Rails platform.

Jeff Eckman, CEO of The UpTurn, explained the reason for choosing Thoughtbot, “We engaged Thoughtbot, in part, due to their rapid development methodology, which will enable us not only to develop and get to market rapidly, but also allow for rapid changes as our customers demand them. Traditional web development processes don’t necessarily allow for that level of responsiveness. Thoughtbot shares our mission to create a compelling, powerful, online real estate experience and to add value for our consumer and professional customers.”

The fact that The UpTurn has chosen a Ruby on Rails base for its offering says a lot about the company’s intentions and potential success. Ruby on Rails is considered one of the best platforms for social networking environments, and should provide The UpTurn with a far different face than most real estate sites. In fact, the non-technical community may know Ruby on Rails best for someone else that used the platform: Twitter.

Thoughtbot knows web 2.0, which should give UpTurn a unique edge in online real estate.

The UpTurn, Inc. (UPTR.PK) Continues To Gain Attention As It Builds Innovative Site

The UpTurn, Inc., founded by Jeff Eckman, a graduate of MIT’s Sloane Business School, has gained attention for its mission to become the preeminent online real estate exchange, bringing together real estate buyers, sellers, renters, and various professionals and businesses, in a way not currently available on the Web. The company is being capitalized with investments from a number of sources, including private funding and capital markets, as well as resources provided by Blue Green Ventures.

The site itself, TheUpTurn.com, is currently under development, available only in a private Beta release. TheUpTurn.com will be designed to match people and properties in a much more flexible and Web 2.0 oriented way than today’s standard real estate sites, which all look and function pretty much the same. Participants will be able to create a unique profile, based on a series of questions, allowing them to join and benefit from the community in the most effective way.

The system will even be able to send query results via email, Facebook, and LinkedIn to provide active users with timely information. In addition, Flickr and YouTube will be integrated to the site for easy posting of photos and videos. The first element of the system, a separate blog site, www.RealityOnRealty.com, was recently opened, and the company has hired the technology consulting firm Thoughtbot to help make the rest of the vision a reality.

Jeff Eckman, UpTurn’s CEO, commented on the company’s stock listing and continued development. “As we enter this period of growth and increased awareness of our company, we wish to see our shareholders benefit as well. I’m confident that our efforts to meet the unmet needs of the real estate community will help us gain recognition among investors and help increase our shareholder base.”

Anytime you have a question/problem (on real estate or anything else), there is someone out there with the answer. The Web has provided us a basic platform for bringing the question and the answer together. But we still don't have adequate front-end software to make it doable. Perhaps this will be a needed step in that direction.
