LUXEMBOURG, Sept. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Altisource™ (Nasdaq: ASPS)
announced the launch of Hubzu™, an online residential real estate marketplace.
Hubzu improves the online home buying and selling experience by making it
easier, more efficient and transparent from start to finish. Hubzu puts the
entire experience online – from searching and bidding to financing and
closing. Effective today, Hubzu replaces GoHoming, Altisource's current online
marketplace for real estate. Hubzu is live at Hubzu.com and includes all real
estate inventory that was previously on GoHoming.com, along with an enhanced
user experience and expanded functionality. The launch capitalizes on
Altisource's position as a global leader in high-value, technology-enabled
residential real estate solutions.

"We've had a lot of success with GoHoming, facilitating nearly 60,000 home
sales to date," commented Scott Wielar, General Manager of Hubzu. "However, to
stay at the forefront of the market, our brand experience and scope of
services needed to evolve. We listened to our customers and redesigned the
user experience to make the entire real estate transaction process easier for
home buyers and sellers. With the new features and functionality, we are
further extending our efficiency and transparency in facilitating the home
buying and selling process," continued Wielar.
Buyers can search for homes, bid to buy homes via auction or the traditional
offer process, or use the "Own It Now" feature to edge out competing bidders
and win an auction immediately. The website then guides buyers through the
contracting and financing process in one centralized online location. For
sellers, Hubzu offers faster, easier sales through increased marketing
visibility and the ability to track bids and respond to offers online. In 2012
and early 2013, Hubzu plans to roll out functionality enhancements, new
features and additional inventory for sale.
