With recent studies showing that 90% of home buyers now start their home search online, real estate searches on Google surged an astounding 253% over the past 4 years. An estimated 43% of buyers have said that web searches led them to their next home.
In the US, this triggered an explosion of online real estate listing services that drastically changed the way Americans look for homes. While the Canadian real estate market may not be as abundant in online search portals, home buyers here are not without options.
One of the top choices is real estate marketplace Point2 Homes. The website comes as a solution for the struggle that buyers often face: lengthy search processes that, in some cases, turn out empty.
The website empowers home buyers throughout Canada by rounding up all the features that make their search easier:
- A vast online database of listings aggregated from multiple sources, such as agent websites or direct MLS feeds, updated on a daily basis
- An intuitive map-based search tool
- A wide array of in-depth search filters: address, price, property type, number of bedrooms, square footage, year built, open houses, and many others
Moreover, the portal offers a dedicated iOS app designed for a superior user experience for iPad and iPhone users.
