Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) August 22, 2006
Movoto, the spot on the internet to find and buy a home in the San Francisco Bay Area, today announced expansion to San Francisco. Movoto’s dynamic Web 2.0 real estate search tools make it easy for home buyers to find a their next new home and now include up to date MLS listings from San Francisco. In addition to expanded online coverage, the company announced it has added a group of experienced, San Francisco based real estate agents to its network.
Movoto’s website, http://www.movoto.com, was launched to an enthusiastic reception from home buyers in San Mateo and Santa Clara counties in December 2005. Henry Shao, CEO of Movoto comments: “We’re excited to launch in San Francisco because we believe Movoto is the first company to offer San Francisco real estate buyers the a complete set of internet tools and expert agents they need to be successful at finding and buying a house using the web. We plan to bring Movoto’s unique web tools and client friendly agents to more Bay Area home buyers as we expand into even more areas this summer.”
The San Francisco real estate market is complex with many types of properties and possible ownership structures. Movoto’s site makes it easy to find and view the details of MLS listings of single family homes, condos, lofts and tenant-in-common (TIC) properties for sale in San Francisco. Interactive maps give an overview of homes across all of San Francisco or zoom to a specific neighborhood in just moments. With one-click on a mapped home a buyer can view a detailed summary of house features. Links to free virtual tours and high resolution aerial views of the home using Microsoft’s new Bird’s Eye View technology show enough detail a buyer might be tempted to skip the Open House.
Home buyers can also quickly compare neighborhoods with Movoto. The site provides performance reports on nearby schools so families with children can find and buy a home near good schools. Movoto’s neighborhood tools also show demographics, housing stock information and crime statistics. If you like to shop and dine out, Movoto conveniently lists nearby grocery stores, restaurants and coffee shops. When a home buyer is ready to make an offer, Movoto’s site offers comparisons with recently sold homes and in-depth market statistics to help the buyer choose a good offer price.
Unlike most Web 2.0 real estate companies, Movoto is a full-service real estate broker with expert San Francisco real estate agents. Highly experienced Movoto agents provide personalized local knowledge to help a buyer compare San Francisco’s widely varying neighborhoods and properties and find the right match. Agents with expertise in the San Francisco market can make the difference in helping a home buyer successfully purchase the home they’re seeking – especially when a sale involves multiple offers, contingencies and a complex ownership structure.
