Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) December 01, 2015
Two by Fore and RE/MAX of Western Canada are pleased to announce a partnership that will dramatically expand the amount of online, professional-quality real estate information available to home buyers, sellers and owners.
Recent data by Agent Ace/Nielsen revealed that the number one criteria people look for when choosing or hiring a real estate agent is ‘expertise in their field.’ Prior to Two by Fore, it was nearly impossible for consumers to find specialized expertise in real estate, let alone those professionals who command that expertise.
Two by Fore brings real estate expertise together on nearly every topic of buying, selling, and maintaining a home. As a user-generated content site, all the questions and answers on Two by Fore are informed by a community of experts. Quality is assessed through likes, which allow the best answers to rise to the top, as well as professionals who have demonstrated the strongest expertise to rise on leaderboards.
"Anyone who has worked with a highly qualified real estate agent knows that they offer a wealth of knowledge that provides exponential value to buyers and sellers. However, we knew from research that most consumers weren’t benefitting from professional knowledge early in the process to make decisions about homes, neighbourhoods, prices or even their agents, said Adam Lerner, Two by Fore Co-Founder & CEO.
The Internet continues to change the face of real estate. According to 2014 data from the National Association of REALTORS®, 81 per cent of buyers frequently use the Internet to search for homes. As a result of Internet home search, 30 per cent found their agent, 24 per cent requested more information, and 13 per cent looked for general buyer tips and mortgage information. And while real estate information is currently scattered across traditional and social media and listings sites, Two by Fore brings knowledge together in one place backed by the expertise of professionals.
“Our partnership with Two by Fore will allow our Sales Associates to be further recognized as experts on various aspects of the home buying and selling process. This, along with RE/MAX of Western Canada’s goal of being on the forefront of technology and innovation, makes our partnership with Two by Fore a natural fit,” said Elton Ash, Regional Executive Vice President, RE/MAX of Western Canada.
