Salt Lake City, UT, January 23, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- A new web site will help make buying and selling homes easier for Utahns. The site, http://www.zoomutah.com, includes more home listings in Utah than any other real estate site. ZoomUtah.com also offers its members access to a number of unique online real estate tools for buying and selling homes. Free membership on the site includes access to more listings, discounts, information, and resources not available on any other Utah real estate web site.
“We live in an era where the consumer demands information, and a lot of it. Giving the consumer information and presenting it as efficient and user-friendly as possible is what the web site is all about. So many local real estate web sites don’t have current information, or if they do, they are often very difficult to navigate,” says Kris Bowen, co-founder of ZoomUtah.com.
Creating the largest real estate directory in Utah, ZoomUtah.com utilizes home listings from the Wasatch Front MLS, but also allows members to add “For Sale by Owner” listings for free. The site currently lists nearly 11,000 homes for sale in Utah. Site visitors can compare multiple listings side-by-side, create and save search criteria for future reference and save and revisit their favorite listings.
ZoomUtah.com also combines current map and satellite imagery applications with local addresses to give users a better sense of location for each home for sale. The site will expand to include school and community information about each home.
“It’s very important that home buyers understand that they will live within ten minutes of a certain school, park, or whatever is important to them,” says co-founder, Cameron North. “The tools we provide make it possible for a home buyer to have a better sense of their surroundings.”
“We have become the leader in online real estate by providing the most useful and interesting information about real estate in Utah,” says Bowen. "By continuing to support our home buyers and sellers after the deal has closed, we will be a leading advocate for consumers in Utah. We realize in order for us to achieve our personal goals, we look to help others achieve theirs first.”
There is no cost to register and use the services on ZoomUtah.com. For more information, visit: http://www.zoomutah.com.
