RISMEDIA, June 4, 2009-RealtyTracTM, a leading online marketplace for foreclosure properties, has announced the launch of its new comprehensive Home Resource Center developed specifically for homeowners and others who want to learn about any type of home improvement-from small do-it-yourself projects to major renovations that require assistance from professional contractors.
Thanks to content from partners such as Lowe’s, the second largest home improvement retailer in the world, RealtyTrac’s new Home Resource Center will contain hundreds of how-to articles and featured videos on all aspects of residential home repair, home improvement, remodeling and renovation projects.
According to the company, users can find tips, advice, step-by-step information and how-to articles to help them maintain and improve the value of their homes. Do-it-yourselfers will find money-saving information on house painting, carpentry, energy-saving home insulation, electrical, plumbing, air conditioning and heating, flooring, masonry, gardening, wood decks, interior decorating, how to install a flat screen television and more. Users can also sign up for free “Tip of the Week” e-mails.
“Because foreclosures often require some level of rehab, adding educational content and home improvement information was a natural fit for our website,” said Jim Saccacio, CEO of RealtyTrac. “We are always looking for new and creative ways to improve the RealtyTrac customer experience and the Home Resource Center is a resource that will benefit our customers and hopefully save them time and money on home improvement and remodeling projects.”
