RISMEDIA, March 17, 2008-”Being on the front end is the only place to be. At [the Realtor Association of Greater Miami and Beaches] RAMB, we check out many new programs as they become available, searching for anything that will assist the real estate professional,” says Chief Administrative Officer Robert Sadler. Sadler believes that Cyberhomes-the brainchild of Fidelity National Real Estate Solutions (FNRES)-gives his company an advantage over others in his marketplace.
“I saw the demonstration for Cyberhomes and was interested in what it was able to do,” says Sadler. “It brought a lot of information to the forefront for the public that they would need to know about a property or neighborhood before they went to look at a house.”
Cyberhomes offers visitors an opportunity to view much of the same information that real estate professionals use to evaluate homes, in addition to property facts, value estimates and important indicators of local and national changes in the housing market. What’s more, the Cyberhomes database includes more than 100 million property, ownership, sales, and mortgage records, covering more than 85% of the U.S. population. The Cyberhomes database updates more than 575,000 new ownership records each month, verified from the original source, and this data is also enhanced with more than 10 years of proprietary information from the company’s own divisions.
The site was designed to benefit brokers and their associates by benefiting consumers, giving them total transparency to property data in over 85% of U.S. communities, adds Sadler. “With Cyberhomes, all the information that a potential buyer needs is at their disposal. Information about the neighborhood, the house itself, schools in the area and even photos are all available through Cyberhomes.com.
“Cyberhomes creates a win-win situation for both the agent and the potential client,” he continues. “The biggest benefit that Cyberhomes provides for our agents and brokers is that all the needed information is in one central location.”
“We make Cyberhomes.com available to all of our members and teach them how to use it,” Sadler adds. “Our members can then turn around and inform their potential clients on how to properly use the site to find the information they are looking for-this allows the agent to become the neighborhood expert. Keeping our agents informed puts them one step ahead of our competition and gives us the advantage in the end. The more information the public can get on their own, the easier it is for an agent to perform a cleaner, more specific job for their client.
“Cyberhomes will become another mainstay,” Sadler concludes. “It will be one more piece of the strategy, along with holding open houses and putting out yard signs. Eventually, these will all be components of a successful real estate business.”
