By: The Austin Board of REALTORS®
Aug. 15, 2012 - PRLog -- The Austin Board of REALTORS® (ABoR) today announced the launch of its revamped consumer property search website, Updates to the design and functionality of the website were integrated using input from ABoR REALTOR® members and prospective homebuyers. Upon visiting the restructured website, users will discover an overall improvement in website navigation, search functionality and real estate tools.

“As trusted resources for accurate and timely Austin area real estate market information, the members of the Austin Board of REALTORS® are pleased to offer a public website that will more effectively meet the needs of those who are contemplating steps to buy or lease property,” said Angela Brutsché, ABoR Director of Marketing and Communications. “Visitors will enjoy identifying REALTORS® and properties that match a multitude of preferences using the available AustinHomeSearch advanced search features.”

“Rather than competing with member websites, this portal ensures that consumer traffic goes back to the brokers and agents,” said John Hensley, Chief Product and Technology Officer with Real Estate Digital, the company providing AustinHomeSearch’s property search platform. “Recent research shows that consumers who are allowed independent access to listings are better informed and more loyal to the real estate professional that helps with their sale or purchase.”

The user-friendly website showcases more than 20,000 active listings in various property types and over 8,500 Central Texas REALTORS®. A new property search component allows users to easily search based on city, county, zip code, area, subdivision and region without dropdown menus. Improved mapping capabilities have also been added, allowing visitors an aerial view of available properties. Additionally, the website contains detailed neighborhood information, consumer tools including a mortgage calculator and enhanced REALTOR® profiles.
