Norfolk, Virginia (October 16, 2014) – Homes.com®, leading online real estate resource and top provider of real estate marketing solutions, has announced its newest partnership in listing data. New Home Feed, a leading marketing tool for home builders to distribute and manage new home listings, will add its high-quality new home listings to Homes.com. This will provide a positive user experience for consumers and give builders access to the more than 12 million active home shoppers who come to the Homes.com website each month.
“Partnering with New Home Feed adds another layer of quality listings and information to the website, reinforcing Homes.com’s position as a leader in the online real estate space,” said Dave Mele, president of Homes.com. “This is a win for everyone. Homes.com will now have a stronger connection to home builders, builders will have a new outlet to reach consumers, and consumers seeking new construction will benefit from more informative listings.”
The partnership will provide the following for new home builders:
Builder listings from New Home Feed will now be displayed on Homes.com search pages.
Easier access for adding new home listings on Homes.com through the New Home Feed management platform.
Inquiries and leads from serious potential buyers will be delivered directly to New Home Feed builders.
Additionally, this partnership will provide home shoppers with more listing photos and videos, as New Home Feed makes it easy for builders to add the content potential buyers want to see when searching for a new home.
“Homes.com and New Home Feed have the common goal of attracting quality home prospects and converting them to leads,” said Rick Phillips, chief executive officer of New Home Feed. “We both share the belief that home builders are best served when shoppers are able to access builder’s directly for more information. Homes.com achieves this by providing robust, clean listing content like home photography and video tours via New Home Feed and by displaying a prominent link to the builder’s website.”
Both Mele and Phillips foresee greater future success for their clients through this partnership.
