RISMEDIA, August 8, 2008-Roost, a search engine for homes, announced that it is working with Maponics LLC to bring superior mapping technology to its local search content.”In real estate it really is all about location,” said Derek Overbey, senior director of Partnership Strategy. “That’s why Roost is committed to providing the most complete, up-to-date data for the local markets it serves. By using Maponics’ neighborhood data and mapping technology, Roost is able to deliver an easy and intuitive way for home buyers to zero in on areas of interest-even down to specific neighborhoods.”
According to the company, Roost partners with local Multiple Listing Services (MLSs) and local brokers to provide a search engine that gives home buyers access to all publicly available homes for sale data from a network of individual broker sites accessed via the Roost search engine. By doing this, Roost ensures consumers receive a single, consistent experience for searching comprehensive property listings. Roost also provides home buyers with access to For-Sale-by-Owner listings and New Construction listings, ensuring a comprehensive experience.
Maponics specializes in custom mapping services and GIS data for businesses. On Roost, the company says Maponics’ neighborhood data and mapping technology makes it easy for home buyers to select homes by city or town, or to narrow their search by neighborhood-they can even route travel between destinations.
“We’re thrilled to be a part of a service such as Roost that helps people find their dream home,” said Darrin Clement, CEO of Maponics. “Online real estate search is a great example of how our mapping technology can provide a richer real estate search experience.”
