NewHomesDirectory.com (NHD) is proud to announce new strategies and partnerships with popular U.S. real estate and classified networks that are significantly benefiting all U.S. new home builders and developers that have listings on the NHD website. For the past 3 months, we've been beta testing these networks with a small group of builders, both national and local. The results have been exceptional.
NHD has increased staffing and is now posting builder and developer communities to Trulia, Zillow, CraigsList, Backpage, and the Oodle Network to name a few.
Trulia and Zillow have become powerhouses in the real estate space with 5.5 million and 8.9 million monthly visitors respectively. Our beta group is kicking off with Trulia beginning Nov. 1, 2009, and with Zillow on Dec. 1, 2009.
With the real estate downturn, more and more consumers are searching classified websites like CraigsList (50.4m), Backpage (2m), and the Oodle Network* (950k), looking for real estate bargains. We've had a BETA group of builders we've been working with and classified sites has proven to be extremely beneficial.
* The Ooodle network powers classified ads for sites such as Walmart.com, FOX, Local.com, Cox Communications, Comcast, AOL, Yellow Pages, Lycos, Military.com and a myriad of local newspaper and TV sites.
Our goal is to drive qualified traffic to the builders on NHD. I know builders are struggling with a smaller amount of resources than in times past - fewer personnel and fewer dollars. We want to make it easy for marketers to get their community listings in as many qualified places as possible. These new partnerships meets that goal.
So now, not only will builders and developers have strong listing positions on Google, Yahoo!, and Bing, through NHD, but now they will have strong listing positions in many of the other new homes and real estate websites where consumers are shopping for homes.
