Denver, CO -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/13/2012 -- Metrolist® has officially re-launched www.REColorado.com, a consumer-facing real estate search engine that’s similar to search sites Trulia and Zillow but with more accurate and timely housing information, offering Colorado buyers, sellers and brokers an unrivalled ability to search for properties and open houses, find local real estate agents and coordinate home buying searches with a broker.
The new site offers simple, yet powerful home searching capabilities for Colorado homebuyers. The search engine incorporates a variety of tools to help in the home buying process, including an aerial-view map search with rooftop accuracy and parcel line overlays, custom searches tailored to regional and market specifics, and enhanced listing information with access to school and neighborhood data. Through the site or a smartphone application, home buyers will have easy access to:
Property Alerts - Property alerts notify you when potential properties become available.
Open Houses - Search for local open houses to tour properties first-hand with turn-by-turn directions.
Home Valuation - Check out your home's current estimated value.
Rentals - A searchable rentals database is coming in early 2012.
Realtors- Find an agent or office.
“For the first time, Colorado consumers and real estate agents have a real estate search website that truly does it all,” said Metrolist interim COO Kirby Slunaker. “Whether you’re a homeowner who wants to value your home or you’re a homebuyer looking for the perfect home buying experience, we offer the tools to get the job done.”
Metrolist selected Irvine, California-based Real Estate Digital, a provider of integrated technology, media, and data solutions to the real estate industry, to power its new site.
“Clearly, consumers with independent access to MLS data like listings and open houses are much better informed,” said John Hensley, Chief Product and Technology Officer for Real Estate Digital. “The new will give consumers just that kind of access through Metrolist’s individual brokers and agents. In the end, it’s all about maximizing the consumer experience.”
Metrolist supports the largest network of Realtors® in Colorado with the most comprehensive database of real property listings throughout the Front Range. Home sellers planning open houses are encouraged to have their real estate professional to schedule the event in the Denver-based MLS.
“Our new public website allows homebuyers to better coordinate with their local real estate professional using the most detailed and timely housing information, greatly improving on what’s currently available in the marketplace,” said James T. Wanzeck, chairperson of the Metrolist Board of Directors. “Providing the community the best real estate products and services available is why Metrolist has become the leading MLS in Colorado.”
