Real estate agents, homeowners and property managers are users of the 55+ home listings.
(PRWEB) October 10, 2016
55CommunityGuide.com is known for its extensive listings of over 55 communities. Now this site has expanded its scope with the addition of listings of 55+ homes for sale or rent.
These new listings are for homes located in age restricted communities or have features that would be attractive to persons 50+ or as a retirement home. Each home listing has options for each age qualified group 50+, 55+, 62+ or none.
There are category types for houses and homes, condos and townhouses, apartments, duplexes, lofts and modular homes. These home listings are separate from the community listings. Each new home section has its own tab on the top of the home page. It is not required that the listing be in an age qualified community but must have features that would be attractive to persons 50+.
Each listing gets its own separate html page which is very SEO friendly. Home listings allow many details including a summary description and a large area for a detailed description. Each listing features a photo at the top plus a photo gallery which allows many photos to be uploaded and viewed as a slide show. Full contact information and an email form is included. A direct link to the ad owners website is included.
The Homes for Sale listings were suggested by real estate agents who had placed community listings and wanted to add their individual home for sale listings. Real estate agents are expected to place the most listings in this section followed by home owners and property managers. This section serves the 55+ home resale market as well as new home sales.
Homes for Rent listings will be attractive to those approaching retirement and want to try out living in a 55+ community with all the amenities without purchasing or those who are unsure about where they want to live. 55+ rentals are reportedly becoming more popular because they are more affordable, offer less risk and less responsibility than home ownership and there is no property taxes or high maintenance expenses to pay.
These 55+ home listings were a natural fit for 55CommunityGuide.com because visitors to the site already have an interest in homes in 55+ communities and other retirement communities. Now rather than looking only at new homes they can consider homes on the resale market also or renting a home.
Home listings are free to place just like the community listings and can be placed from the Advertise With Us tab at the top of the home page. 55CommunityGuide.com can offer free listings because the advertising network generates the income, not those who place listings nor the prospects who can view everything for free without registering.
The site is established with high rankings in the organic search results of the major search engines so home listings will received the same high traffic as the community listings receive. Each listing in the 55+ Homes section will be promoted on the company's extensive social media accounts at Twitter and Facebook which have thousands of followers.
