Our condo map tools allow users to build on their existing knowledge of the Boston condo market, enabling them to gain a full awareness of what is available, when its available, and where its available
Boston, Massachusetts (PRWEB) January 29, 2007
The Boston condo market is currently undergoing a defining period of development and growth. Alongside this change, the resources available to navigate the market are also maturing into much more sophisticated tools. These innovations in resources are due to the emergence of Web 2.0, the idea that the Internet has evolved into one large computing platform where users are now able to interact with both websites and other users, thereby continuously adding value. Boston Condo Group is proud to announce the development and integration of Web 2.0 dynamics into its website, http://www.bostoncondogroup.com, giving buyers and sellers an improved arena of tools and possibilities that will change the way they search, navigate, and gain knowledge of the condo market.
Up until now, most real estate websites have only offered brochureware, meaning they display properties and buildings with information equivalent to a simple paper brochure. To offer visitors an interactive experience, Boston Condo Group has taken the simple idea of displaying a map for a specific condo building and integrated Google maps and API technology. When a visitor views a building's page on bostoncondogroup.com, they will be able to see the building pinpointed on a Google map, and then they will have the opportunity to "Display Nearby Buildings". Using this function activates the interactive elements, and all condo developments in the area will pop up in the form of red pushpins. The user has the ability to click on each of the pushpins, bringing up the name and picture of each building. Beyond physical locations, the user is presented with a full index of information and pictures for each development.
Mike Scolamiero, President of Boston Condo Group, states "Our condo map tools allow users to build on their existing knowledge of the Boston condo market, enabling them to gain a full awareness of what is available, when its available, and where its available".
Boston Condo Group also makes it easy for their content to be tagged and shared among larger networks. Web 2.0 has flourished social networking communities, meaning that Internet users now have the ability to bookmark pages on a network much bigger then just their individual computers. They can now tag them in online social communities where pages can be evaluated by other users, shared with millions of people, commented and discussed, and retrieved from any plugged in location. Bostoncondogroup.com makes it easy for site visitors to participate in social networks by integrating simple "add to" buttons on their pages. With just the click of the mouse a visitor can streamline one of our pages into their online virtual world.
Matthew Powers, Lead Site Developer, states "The term Web 2.0 does not have a boundary, only a growing set of resources to build off of. By providing tools and services that will redefine the users' approach to searching for real estate, we have developed and embraced the technology of tomorrow's Internet, today."
Matthew Winterle, Co-Founder and Chief Real Estate Consultant, states "after one of the toughest years for the real estate market in nearly a decade, we feel as though we are bringing Boston Condo Group to the forefront at a perfect time. Some of our main goals for bostoncondogroup.com are to offer consumers a helpful resource that is second-to-none. We will accomplish this with our user-friendly website, constantly updated condo market news, ever-growing database of preconstruction, new, and resale luxury condo developments, and constant real estate consultation."
