The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) recently created a new home listing website on its Realtylink.org platform.
The board says the site “provides a more modern online experience with enhanced search and filtering capabilities. Visitors can create a profile and save their searches and favourite listings. Search results can be organized in a map, gallery or list-based view.”
The new Realtylink was created in partnership with Centris, a Quebec-based company that operates Centris.ca. It is the most visited real estate listing website in Quebec and the third most frequented in Canada.
Realtylink.org showcases MLS listings for homes in the Lower Mainland, Vancouver Island and northern region of B.C.
“We designed the new Realtylink to enhance the public’s knowledge about the homes available for sale around our province,” says Brad Scott, REBGV CEO. “It’s a powerful tool based on proven technology. We’ll continue to work with our Centris partner to add features and data to improve and grow the site over time.”
The site also allows users to explore a home’s location through embedded Google Maps options and assess a home’s proximity to amenities through the Walk Score rating feature.
Listing information on the site is updated every 20 minutes, pulling the most up-to-date data from the MLS systems operated by the Greater Vancouver, Fraser Valley, Chilliwack, B.C. Northern, and Vancouver Island real estate boards.
The site also has real estate news and statistics.
