The San Francisco Association of REALTORS®, a leader in the San Francisco real estate market since 1905, has announced the launch of its new consumer-facing, home property search website, www.SFRealtors.com. The rebranded site provides in real-time, the most accurate, MLS-certified property listings in San Francisco. The site is compatible with all mobile and tablet platforms.
“San Francisco is one of the hottest real estate markets in the country,” Association President Christine Dwiggins said. “SFRealtors.com fills a much-needed niche in the market by providing home seekers MLS-certified listings in real time and in one place. Along with property listings, visitors will find a wealth of open house, neighborhood, demographic and rental property information.”
Property information is included for all properties in San Francisco, not just those being currently offered for sale, making it a great reference site for consumers, even if they are not in the market for real estate right now.
SFRealtors.com is the only residential property search website for San Francisco powered directly by the San Francisco MLS and returning MLS-certified listings. That means property listings are updated in real-time and shown within minutes, as opposed to syndicated sites that receive their listing content through feeds, which can take days and sometimes even weeks to update.
An independent study by the WAV Group found that national consumer property search sites don’t adequately reflect the active for sale home inventory because they often include inactive listings that have already been sold or are no longer available. The study further concluded that local real estate sites, similar to SFRealtors.com, show new listings as many as nine days before national consumer portal sites.
When home seekers click on a for sale property listing on SFRelators.com, in addition to pulling up details on the residence, the search will return an abundance of tax and neighborhood data including:
- Recent sales information
- Price-per-square foot
- User-friendly maps with customizable overlays showing: Crime statistics, Tax-per-square foot, Hazards and environmental data, Neighborhood amenities.
In August, SFRelators.com will also feature an enhanced San Francisco Neighborhoods section with photos and video tours of each of San Francisco’s diverse neighborhoods. The new website is the ideal resource for both REALTORS® and consumers who want the inside look at the San Francisco real estate market.
