New Real Estate technologies and sites often come up for the public . Some new site offer new ways to search and find properties specific to the buyers needs and other technologies help sell home quicker or get more exposure for listed properties.
Here are some new Technologies/Sites... and what we have rated them.
Description...Vancouver-based BestHomesBC.com is launching the unique property search service that utilizes Google’s Street View to locate homes currently for sale throughout British Columbia.
Users simply click on the house symbol within Street View to instantly reveal property details with a link to the full-page listing. This includes comprehensive property information including a YouTube video, Walk Score and a link to the listing realtor’s contact information. If users see another house symbol up the road in Street View, they can move further up and compare property details.
The way that this differs from the regular Google Street View format that is found on many realtors' web sites is that they show just one property at any given time. The Google Street View search function that has been designed and incorporated into BestHomesBC.com allows the user to see all the properties for sale in a street at the same time.
In the same way as if a user was physically walking down the street and saw all the realtors' signs up.
BestHomesBC.com can be translated into 52 different languages with the touch of a button, giving access to home buyers both within and outside Canada.
Review... This sounds great, except for the fact there are only 17 listings on the entire site for all of Vancouver. No buyer can truly compare unless they have a full range of products and inventory to view. The Street View option is finicky and the site is slow. Overall, GREAT IDEA! but needs a lot of work and inventory.
