Savannah, GA (PRWEB) January 29, 2007 - ERA Adams-
Pevey Realty announces a new online tool that has recently been launched to assist people looking to buy real estate in the Savannah, Georgia and surrounding areas. The "Savannah Real Estate Marketplace", located at http://www.SavannahRealEstateMarketplace.com, is a local website that allows future Savannah homeowners to easily find their "dreamhome" with the simple click of a mouse. By implementing some of the latest options in online technology to the site, website visitors can now perform several tasks that were previously only available for Realtors.
One example is called "Housetrack". Housetrack allows website visitors to type in exactly what type of property they're looking for and then have daily emails sent to them whenever something new "hits" the market that matches their criteria. This allows website visitors to be notified of new properties the same time other Realtors are notified. The Housetrack service also sends email alerts when properties have been reduced.
When searching for property on the Savannah Real Estate Marketplace, the MLS search, provided by ERA Adams-Pevey, is now integrated with Google Maps. Simply type in the search criteria you're looking for and when the results page loads, it features a map with "thumbtacks" showing where the properties are located. By clicking on the "Satellite" link, the map changes from a drawn map to actual satelite images showing exactly where each property is located. By clicking and dragging your mouse inside of the image, you can pan around the image in realtime without have to reload the page.
While browsing through properties online, it's often cumbersome to keep up with all of the homes that interest you. On the Savannah Real Estate Marketplace website, by simply clicking a link labeled "Save Listing", you can place favorite homes into your own personal repository which can be accessed again during a later visit.
Have a relative or friend you'd like to show a property of interest to? Click on the "Send to a Friend" link and an email will automatically be sent to the named recipient which contains a link for them to view the property.
Planning to spend a day visiting homes of interest? Click on a link labeled "Printable Version" for each property you're interested in. This will load the properties you're interested in into a flyer view, suitable to be printed out.
Taking technology one step forward, the Savannah Real Estate Marketplace implemented a state-of-the-art toll-free number system for easy access to speak directly with a Savannah Realtor. When website visitors call the toll-free number, each real estate agent's cell phone rings at the same time. The first agent to "accept" the call is connected with the visitor. By alerting each real estate agent of a phone call, having to leave voicemail messages for callbacks is no longer an issue. When you call the toll-free number, you're really calling up to 10 real estate agents at the same time.
Not ready to speak over the phone with a real estate agent? No problem. The site also features a "live chat" option which gives visitors a way to communicate with a Savannah Realtor by typing messages back and forth directly through a console on the site.
But this site isn't just for buyers. Those looking to sell their home have yet another reason to hire the services of ERA Adams-Pevey Realty to sell their house. All sellers working with ERA Adams-Pevey have the option of having their home displayed as a "Featured Home" on the site. "Featured Homes" appear below the menu on every single page of the site. With the constant increasing daily traffic to the site, your home for sale is seen by thousands both locally and worldwide each month.
Technology has opened up such wonderful ways to help buyers find real estate in an online environment and the Savannah Real Estate Marketplace has taken several online tools and combined them into one site. With new articles being added to the site daily, one can see how this site will become one of the most popular sites for Savannah homeseekers. This is yet another way that ERA Adams-Pevey's commitment to service, technology and forward-thinking keeps them on top in the Real Estate industry.
