Seattle (PRWEB) February 18, 2010
Windermere Real Estate has unveiled a beta version of its redesigned website, which is available via a link at http://www.windermere.com. The new site incorporates feedback from extensive customer research and usability studies to make searching for homes faster and more targeted.
Key improvements integrate a streamlined design with even greater options for consumers to set their customized search immediately from the home page. In addition to price and size, the “More options” search function allows users to choose criteria that includes new construction, views and single-story homes.
New "Buy a home” and “Sell a home” sections provide consumer information about the real estate process. A blog, which will debut with the official launch of the site, will include current news about the real estate market, tips for buyers and sellers, and articles about home improvement, remodeling and home maintenance. Popular features of the Windermere.com site have been carried forward, including automatic flagging of all properties that are holding open houses.
The beta site also offers consumers the opportunity to provide Windermere with additional feedback for improvements. Users can click the "Feedback" button on the beta site home page to offer ideas, ask questions or identify problems. All comments will be reviewed by the Windermere technology staff and the feedback will be incorporated into ongoing improvements to the new site, which will officially launch this spring.
