Do you actually check the listings on your website? The first one I clicked on in your Live Offer Listing was for a $20K property in Detroit which stood on a 5000 acre lot. That's approximately 7.8 square miles.

Many of the properties featured don't even have any photographs to accompany them. Forgive me for sounding cynical but your website looks like a scammers paradise to me.

I notice your Domain Registration has used a privacy protection service.

What I can't understand is where you are making your money from if it's free to buy and sell on your website. What's the catch?

Thanks!

I'm really not a bit sure how a user of our site making a mistake on the difference of square footage as opposed to acrage would in any way make the site "unsafe" which is the point of the review but either way it seems there is some confusion on what our site is. To simplify it, the site is like eBay but for real estate. This means WE DO NOT OWN THE PROPERTIES POSTED AND WE DO NOT POST THE PROPERTIES AND WE MAKE NO COMMISSIONS ON THE PROPERTIES POSTED JUST LIKE EBAY DOES IT ALL PROPERTIES ARE POSTED BY THE USER AND THE ACCURACY OR BASICS POSTED ARE UP TO THEM. We make our money off of creating a free site that real estate investors and professionals can use and enjoy which gives us traffic which allows us to work with real estate service providers to advertise, this is the same model as Google and Facebook, create something free that the user wants and then by creating that targeted traffic you generate ad revenue. Our advertisers include industry giants including Quicken Loans, and Foreclosure.com. Hopefully that makes a bit more sense and I would ask anyone rating the site on here to use common sense and remember the point of mywot is not weather you think a site is "cooL' or like the design, but rather if you think it is safe. So far we at ListedBy are blown away by even the notion that our site could be considered unsafe and one of our tens of thousands of members accidentally posting the wrong lot size on THEIR listing certainly does nothing to make the site seem unsafe.

First start is to get a Privacy Policy page up on the site (I couldn't find it), put a link in the footer on every page, probably under company info would be a good idea.
Much of the site is great I'm sure, but without it, many of the guys here will be overly harsh with their ratings purely for that alone.

Outside of that, I wish you good luck and can talk to those to who have given you a bad comment and rating politely to change it once you feel you have fixed the issue they have given you for.

I'll rate your site once I see your reply.

Thanks Kathos!

That is really a logical reply and post on your part and we sincerely appreciate the open direct feedback. So far you are literally the only person to post a direct comment explaining potentially why their would be a low rating and your suggestion is one we WILL implement. We do have a privacy policy HERE: http://listedby.com/Home/Terms - however I agree when I personally went to find the link for it the process took even me a few minutes of searching so we really need to make that more prominent. Beyond that since we are a free site we find it confusing anyone would consider us unsafe and we cant understand any harm our site could cause so if you see anything else specifically please do let me know as we want to be a happy fun safe place for all our users.

No problem, next up is terms and conditions and privacy policy are best as two different pages. Of course they will often reference each other. You really only have a terms and conditions to your site, not a privacy policy. Even if you feel you have a privacy policy section in the terms, it's hidden among the lawyer talk and gibberish, it's better to make them separate pages and have them both links easy to find, in the footer per my previous comment.

A quick Google search will help you out, but while I can't vouch for it's guidance, it's not far off what I would suggest to a client if they asked me what they needed to do. It will give you some good hints in the right direction:
