The BEST Website is Now Better!
Published: June 24 2011
At the beginning of 2011, we set out to understand how you use CBSHOME.com and what features of CBSHOME.com are most popular. Many of the website enhancements we are introducing today came as a result of a thorough study of the latest trends and most user-friendly real estate websites. We then worked on new design concepts with our own web design team and David Day & Associates. In the end, the new home page and additional changes have resulted in the BEST local real estate website!
Today, we are proud to announce that CBSHOME.com has a new home page focused on getting users to the information they are seeking quickly!
Here are the highlights of the site’s enhancements:
Redesigned Home Page: Our new home page is focused on an easy Quick Search. In the Location field, you can type a street name, house number, city, zip code or subdivision to see search results. This search also allows you to narrow your results with bedrooms, bathrooms and a price range.
New to Market: We automatically rotate through CBSHOME listings that have been listed within the past seven days. Clicking on the photo will bring you to more property details and an agent’s contact information.
My CBSHOME Page: Allows you to easily sign-in to your existing Saved Search/Saved Property site, or create a new Saved Search. If you are already registered with an agent, once you sign-in, you will see your saved searches and saved properties. This is prominent on the home page and ALL interior pages of the site.
News and Noteworthy: This section is easily updated with current news and announcements from CBSHOME.
Enhanced Navigation for Additional Services: While property searches are the most popular item on our website, there are additional services that you may be interested in. On the right side of the page, we have new tabs labelled “Our Services,” “Open Houses,” “Our Community,” “CBSHOME Mobile,” and “CBSHOME Careers.” All of which contain additional information for those areas of our business.
And last, but not least, our interior Search Pages are bigger and easier to use! We removed the left navigation bar to give more room to the Map Search. This means its an easier search to use with less scrolling for a consumer!
