Norfolk, Va (PRWEB) July 22, 2009
Homes.com (http://www.homes.com), a division of Dominion Enterprises, has made customizing a home search on its real estate portal even easier for home buyers. New tabs on the redesigned property detail pages allow visitors to customize their search experience by choosing photo views, street views, or interactive map views with a simple click of a button.
"In today's market, active home buyers, and people thinking of buying or selling a home, demand more than just property information," said Jason Doyle, Homes.com vice president and general manager. "The home is just the beginning. People want the flexibility to see what nearby homes and streets look like, where they can shop, what schools and recreation are in the area, and more. Our new tools help visitors conduct research and quickly find homes that meet their needs."
The photo view includes school information, nearby homes for sale, recently sold homes, local points of interest, driving directions and more. The interactive map provides full-screen views including: neighborhood boundaries, hospitals, restaurants, shopping centers and driving directions. Street view mapping, powered by Google, enables Homes.com visitors to view the neighborhood surrounding a home as if they were walking on local streets.
In addition to existing homes for sale, Homes.com features new homes, apartment rental communities and foreclosure properties.
Home buyers continue to make Homes.com their destination for finding their next home. According to Hitwise, Homes.com was among the Top 10 Real Estate Websites for the week of July 4, 2009.
