Check Out the NAR Cool New Website For Consumers

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty 0575737

House Magnify GlassMost consumers are fairly familiar with for home search from the National Assn of Realtors. Now they have come up with another consumer site.


It is currently in Beta version, so take a peek. It is intended for homeowners to protect, maintain, and enhance the value of their homes PLUS provide business-building tools for Realtors. How about that? Something for consumers AND their Realtors.

The site will also allow homeowners to speak together with Realtors to federal legislators on public policy issues where homeowners and the real estate industry have a common interest.

Consumers will get the big push about this site come February but for now Realtors are encouraged to explore around and give your feedback.

Aren't you glad I gave you first dibs??

Bookmark it.

You get all my good stuff!

Gary, the first thing I went to was Make Your Case for a Property Tax Reduction. There have been a few homeowners who have asked various agents in our offices for some assistance in comparing taxes to comparable homes, and some were successful in getting a reduction. This one feature would be a huge boon to homeowners. Not sure what it will do for the counties in which they live. If the rest of the site is this well-written, it will become a shortcut on my screen and browser toolbar. Soooo much more fun to be a beta-viewer, rather than a critic.
