SUNNYVALE, Calif., Nov. 11, 2015 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — MLSListings today became the first multiple listing service in California to offer New Homes Navigator – a first of its kind service that connects real estate professionals with new construction inventory for their clients’ home search.

In this time of extremely limited inventory in California, MLSListings brokers and agents can better help clients realize their dreams of homeownership beyond existing homes. Real estate professionals will be able to provide buyers with a comprehensive new home construction search tool, as well as an exciting mobile and interactive buying experience.

“Data indicates that nearly 20 percent of home buyers are only looking for newly-built homes. Couple that with the 88 percent of shoppers who use a REALTOR to assist with their home purchase and it’s a win-win situation – both for our subscribers and for consumers who rely on all of us for timely and accurate real estate information,” said James Harrison, president and CEO, MLSListings. “MLSListings is proud to join New Homes Navigator to launch this market-forward solution to confront our current market challenges.”

“According to a recent California Association of REALTORS survey, the number one item buyers would change about working with an agent would be that they have better knowledge of the markets,” said Jonathan Wilhelm, director, New Homes Navigator. New Homes Navigator gives agents and their buyers just that, with a comprehensive and easy to use new construction portal. “Since more than 50 percent of buyers are in the market for a new construction home, we’re putting a powerful tool into the hands of MLSListings brokers and agents.”

The New Homes Navigator database is continually updated with information on new home communities throughout California.
