RISMEDIA, June 12, 2009-Today RealEstate.com rolls out its all-new website, offering what the company says is even faster, easier access to nearly three million homes for sale, as well as current home values, local resources and advice for homebuyers and sellers. At the heart of the website is Town SquareSM, a real estate social network that creates an open dialogue between homebuyers, sellers and real estate professionals through blogs, forums, wikis, groups and more.
Driven by consumer feedback, the all-new RealEstate.com offers more direct access to the information homebuyers and sellers want, whether they are searching for a home or looking for advice. This includes a tighter integration between the website’s search feature and hundreds of useful tips, tools, community guides and other information. Simply enter a phrase like “moving” and get a checklist on “choosing the right moving company,” an article about “how to avoid moving scams” and more. As always, the website is seamlessly connected with RealEstate.com, REALTORS®, the company’s full-service real estate brokerage, and its broker partners – so consumers can also get immediate live feedback from real-world professionals on specific listings.
Accessible at http://ts.realestate.com or via the RealEstate.com home page, Town Square SM brings the worlds of online and in-person real estate together in an interactive social community. By visiting Town Square SM, consumers can access expert insight from agents, share their experiences, learn about emerging real estate trends and search an A-to-Z encyclopedia about all-things-real estate. For real estate professionals, Town Square SM offers an opportunity to connect with interested homebuyers and sellers, network with other agents, share tips and best practices and blog about the latest real estate news and happenings in their area.
“Our mission has always been to immerse consumers in the data they need to make smart, well-informed real estate decisions, while also delivering expert guidance and personal support through our local brokers and agents,” said Rick Finch, Vice President of Marketing, Product, and Operations. “The combination of our website, brokerage network and now Town Square SM offers a complete suite of resources for consumers to do this, creating a content-rich, highly intuitive experience for their individual buying and selling needs.”
