Homesnap for Consumers!
We are proud to announce that the consumer version of Homesnap, Powered by the Broker Public Portal, is now available to buyers and sellers who are now going to national real estate portals.
The Broker Public Portal (BPP) initiative grew out of a movement among brokers across the country to develop an industry-controlled real estate search experience for consumers. The idea was to leverage the relationship between brokers and their agents with the MLS where they list and sell property so that agents could deliver the highest quality listing information directly to buyers and sellers. NorthstarMLS was at the forefront of this national collaboration between brokers and MLS’s.
Homesnap is the business and technology partner chosen by the Broker Public Portal Board of Managers to realize its goal of providing agents with an alternative to the big portals. It is a Mobile-first solution that has already achieved extraordinary adoption on a national basis both by agents who can engage with their clients and prospects using Homesnap Pro and directly by consumers who have made Homesnap the #1 rated real estate app in the App store.
You won’t find any advertising on the app, nor will you be sold premium placement or zip codes. This is a “your listing – your lead” service that is provided to you as a benefit from your MLS. Buyers and sellers will see all the homes for sale from every real estate company in our market updated at the same frequency as IDX and with the same levels of quality and accuracy that are the hallmarks of MLS.
The Broker Public Portal (powered by Homesnap), continues to attract more and more consumers. It is now the second largest MLS consumer website, according to Hitwise, the nation’s leading source for measuring real estate web traffic across the entire industry.
Broker Public Portal with Homesnap has delivered over one million free leads to participating real estate agents nationally and the growth trend line is rapidly ascending thanks to agents across the country introducing Homesnap to their contacts.
Just since March, NorthstarMLS agents received over 20,000 free leads. These are from Homesnap users on the consumer version, who are not already linked to an agent. Those leads went directly to the List Agents (or to the Selling Agents for Solds), the best source of the information about the properties.
We believe that Homesnap, Powered by Broker Public Portal, will be especially appreciated by consumers for its superior content and direct connection to you, the real estate professional best able to help them with their buying and selling needs.
