StreetEasy has launched Out East, a Hamptons real estate site replacing Hamptons Real Estate Online (HREO.com), as well as StreetEasy’s Hamptons site, the Zillow Group company recently announced. Zillow Group acquired Hamptons Real Estate Online in January 2017.
“With almost 40 percent of HREO’s visits in 2017 coming from New York City users, it’s clear these two real estate markets are intrinsically linked, but very different,” says Matt Daimler, general manager of Out East. “Channeling the same nuanced, hyper-local approach we take with our other New York brands, Out East is designed to provide renters and buyers with an exceptional and uniquely Hamptons real estate experience that can’t be found anywhere else. We’re excited to continue evolving and investing in Out East, and to make it even easier for people to find their dream home in the Hamptons.”
Out East provides expansive listings covering for-sale homes, short- and long-term rentals and land for sale, as well as locally-penned town guides and a hyper-customized shopping experience to help buyers and renters discover their Hamptons dream home.
On Out East, buyers and renters will see a completely reimagined search experience that captures the beauty of the Hamptons and provides market-specific features and filters. The experience provides home shoppers with the ability to search by town, rental period, and waterfront location or water views. Large photos are the focal point of each listing page and are accompanied by neighborhood information and a map of the home’s proximity to beaches, farmers markets, transportation options and other local points of interest.
Out East also provides buyers and renters with the ability to save custom searches and favorite listings, and to receive instant emails if a listing status changes or if new listings that meet their criteria hit the market. Because Out East is the only platform directly connected to RealNet™, Out East is the first to know about new listings and listing updates. It provides access to the most up-to-date and comprehensive for-sale, for-rent and vacant land listings across the Hamptons, the North Fork and Shelter Island. Designed as a mobile-web friendly platform, it’s easy to search and save listings from any mobile device, as well.
For real estate professionals, Out East offers a truly local home shopping experience and a powerful tool dedicated to the market in which they specialize. Built upon RealNet data, Out East is a modern, premium platform for agents to market their Hamptons listings and connect with potential buyers, sellers and renters. RealNet, which Zillow Group acquired as part of the HREO acquisition, will continue to operate with a fee for agents.
