RISMEDIA, August 4, 2009-FrontDoor.com, the online real estate information service of cable network leader HGTV, announced it will serve as a national real estate listing partner for a collection of more than 250 newspaper websites nationwide. The partnership will be offered as a component of the real estate platform solution by Gabriels Technology of New York.
FrontDoor kicks off the new partnerships in San Francisco. Launching with media partners such as Cox Newspapers, Freedom Newspapers, Journal Register Company, and Southern Newspaper Group among others, FrontDoor’s 4 million listings will be available through premier newspaper sites such as The Boston Globe, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, The Minneapolis Star Tribune and The Denver Post, to name a few. Future phases of the partnership will include the addition of even more expert real estate information in the form of articles and videos.
“As real estate is an inherently local business, FrontDoor understands the importance of starting with a familiar, trusted source such as one’s local media in exploring the particulars of home buying and selling,” said Vikki Neil, general manager of home brands for Scripps Networks Digital. “With all the tough issues facing the housing market today, consumers also need the expertise of an industry-endorsed and credible source like HGTV’s FrontDoor.”
