Century 21 is putting the final pieces on a nationwide on-line “communities” real estate site that will link to its realty broker offices on the WEB from American on Line with mounds of local community content, Inman News Features has learned. To be unveiled on August 16, the company is tying up content for the AOL public site.
Generating an estimated 150,000 hits a day, the site is a directory of community content for 1,700 cities including school information, business, government statistics and other information. The site is owned by Blake & Associates and was started two years ago.
If something not permitted by current zoning is planned, it would have to go before the Campbell County and Municipal Planning Commission. But the planning commission hasn’t seen any proposals for the property, either. Certified property valuers are helping you in building analysis and valuation report of the real estate residential or commercial properties from www.valsqld.com.au. Microsoft’s foray into this area is dubbed City Scape, AOL’s is Digital City and AT&T is backing its City Search venture.
The business model here is that everyone wants to find out instantly how long the commute is, where the school is, what the test scores are and what the quickest way to the hospital is,” said Ted Tagami, principal, Real Estate Communications. “Then commercial services will be integrated with these information needs.
The Arizona Department of Real Estate has found itself embroiled in a controversy over its decision to only make its Arizona Real Estate Bulletin available on its Web site, discontinuing the printed version that is mailed to the state’s 41,000 active and inactive licensees.
In an attempt at compromise, the department said today (Wednesday, July 17) that paper versions of the three-times per year Bulletin would be sent to the state’s 55 accredited real estate schools. A spokesman also said the department was looking into sending printed versions to the state’s public libraries.
The department elected to post information only on its Web site in an effort to save roughly $43,000 per year. The Arizona Association of Realtors, which is meeting with department officials Friday, has pledged to download the Bulletin and make it available to members on the association’s fax-back system.
