RISMEDIA, August 18, 2008-Roost, Inc., a comprehensive search engine for finding your dream home, announced the launch of its service in the New England area, extending its coverage to New Hampshire, Vermont, Western Maine and Northern Massachusetts. The company says the addition of these new listings gives local home buyers accurate and up-to-date homes for sale listings of single-family homes, new construction and for sale by owner properties on the Web and provides real estate agents with a streamlined and effective new way to connect with home seekers. Roost has initially teamed up with Prudential Verani Realty, one of New Hampshire’s largest real estate companies, in promoting the launch.

The addition of New England expands Roost’s network to more than 6,000 popular U.S. cities and market areas, according to the company. To develop the best, most accurate listings, Roost forms partnerships with local Multiple Listing Service (MLS) boards one community at a time. By contrast, other real estate search sites largely depend on broker feeds and other third party sources which are often unreliable and outdated. Roost’s listings are always current because they are tied directly to the MLS. In this competitive real estate market, outdated information can quickly lead to frustration if a listed property has been sold or taken off the market.

Roost’s services in New England are available within the New England MLS board boundaries, which covers all off New Hampshire and Vermont, the western part of Maine and Northern Massachusetts.

“Our team at Roost takes great care to roll out new markets, and we’re confident that these new market listings will live up to the best-in-class user experience that home seekers count on,” said Alex Chang, CEO of Roost. “Even though the New England market may have been hibernating of late, there is a lot of desirable inventory available. By using Roost, we know users will be better armed to make smart decisions in their home buying quest.”

“Roost is a fantastic service for home buyers, home sellers and agents in New England,” said Stephen McGuire, vice president of Prudential Verani Realty. “Information is critical when searching for a home – it’s the one resource that will make the difference between success and frustration. Roost gives home buyers a real advantage in a difficult market and brings them closer than other online search engines to finding their dream home. The combination of Roost.com and www.Verani.com is a win-win solution for both buyers and sellers.”

Roost recently announced the launch of its service in San Francisco and Seattle.
