Ontario Cottager has launched a new website that makes it easier than ever to locate Ontario cottages for sale and rent in the province that is well-known for its vibrant "cottage country."
OntarioCottager.ca is a user-friendly new database of sales and rentals where property owners can list Ontario cottages for sale as well as Ontario cottage rentals. The site features extensive social media integration and an innovative "email alert" feature that allows buyers to have notifications of new Ontario Cottage listings emailed directly to their inbox.
"Our goal is to better connect renters, buyers and property owners," said OntarioCottager producer Michael Mason.
"A big part of that is to give buyers and renters more options for finding properties. With our email alerts and social media promotion, they don't have to come to use to find properties. We can bring the properties to them."
The site features companion pages on Facebook and the popular Twitter micro-blogging service. New listings filed to OntarioCottager.ca are also fed to these companion sites and to OntarioCottager's rss feeds.
Each listing page also contains links that make it easy for visitors to share listings among various social bookmarking sites.
"Pushing our listings across various platforms offers more options for property hunters, and in the end more value for our customers who list a cottage with us," Mason added. "We're not done either. There are a lot more features like this in the works."
Property owners list Ontario Cottages for sale or rent via a simple form on the website. They can include up to 11 images for each listing.
The form also features a simple interface that allows owners to plot the property on a Google Map. This method of mapping the property offers precise control over the depicted location, even if owners don't know the exact coordinates of the property.
Payment for the listings is made online using a credit card.
OntarioCottager.ca is a production of MediaV, a web design and development firm located in Ontario's Niagara Region.
