Costa Mesa, CA (PRWEB) April 22, 2009
Today, Hanley Wood Market Intelligence, in partnership with DataSphere, launched http://www.NewHomeListings.com, a consumer focused website that will connect potential new home buyers to builders by featuring the most comprehensive database of new home community information available online. The NewHomeListings.com approach offers several distinct advantages over other national and regional web sites with new home listings:
1) The site will be more compelling to consumers because of its unique and comprehensive content. With approximately 14,000 communities, NewHomeListings.com has twice as many communities as its competitors, covering national, regional and local builders.
2) Listings and leads are free. NewHomeListings.com does not charge builders for basic listings or to receive leads. This is a significant advancement from today's business model for this service. Eventually builders will have the opportunity to upgrade their services levels for a fee.
3) The NewHomeListings.com platform will deliver greater traffic and actionable leads through its robust syndication network. This network was customized to maximize lead volume and lead quality from other online sites, including sites that currently have no new home content.
"By becoming a marketing partner with our builder clientele we hope to strengthen all of our product offerings throughout the homebuilder community" said Andrew Reid, President. "NewHomeListings.com will help new home builders sell homes and benefit the homebuilding industry as a whole."
"With a tremendous depth of rich information for each property, NewHomeListings.com provides the best way for consumers to get a real sense of which new homes are best suited to their needs" stated Satbir Khanuja, CEO, DataSphere. "We are very pleased that Hanley Wood has chosen to use TotalSite™ by DataSphere to power the world class Web site experience on this valuable new resource for builders and consumers alike."
