RISMEDIA, April 16, 2007- Move.comTM, operated by Move, Inc. has launched a series of "How-to" Guides to help consumers navigate the often daunting waters of first time home buying, remodeling and more. Help is just a mouse click away for those in the market for their first home but aren't sure where to start or those with a 1970's living room in desperate need of a makeover but first want some advice.

Consumers visiting the Move.com Web site, http://www.move.com/guide, will be able to access four new How-to Guides, including the most requested areas of: How to Buy Your First Home, How to Remodel, How to Find a Rental, and How to Find Senior Housing. Move has tapped into its vast library of information to assemble the most informative articles, tools and advice from experts.

The new How-to Guides take the consumer step-by-step through the process with several examples and articles fit for the individual's needs. For instance, each How-to Guide has five different tabs (DECIDE, LEARN, CHOOSE, DETAILS, MOVE) and within each tab are different steps to learn specifically more about the topic at hand.

"These new tools harness the breadth and depth of content we provide on Move.com, covering every aspect of the moving process," said Eric Thorkilsen, president of Move-Related Services division of Move, Inc. "The moving or upgrading process can be overwhelming and these Guides break everything down into manageable, user-friendly steps that are specifically detailed for the consumer's needs."

Users will know they are not alone. Each How-to Guide features an interactive blog where they can ask questions, get moral support or just share their personal experiences. Move has helped create this dialogue between professionals and consumers to share stories about the pain or success they have personally faced, with photos and encouragement from fellow users.

"Along with the professional advice that the new How-to Guides offer, the companion blogs connect people going through similar life events and offer an opportunity for them to network throughout the process," said Lisa Farris, chief marketing officer of Move, Inc. "The blogs are a platform for our audience to discuss key topics and we're able to learn more about their needs along the way," continued Farris.

The four Move How-to Guides are just the beginning. In the coming months, Move will add several new topics to grow this new Web site resource, including Moving Up – Selling and Buying, Building Your Home, and Buying a Second Home.
