New real estate search engine, Zoocasa, launches


    TORONTO, Sept. 11 /CNW/ - Zoocasa is a new free Canadian real estate
search engine that is designed to let consumers search homes for sale and also
help them decide on the right one to buy.
    Zoocasa understands that choosing a home is a personal and complex
decision. In addition to evaluating the house itself, consumers care about the
location - such as the neighbourhood's attributes, local schools, the commute
to work, or nearby amenities. Zoocasa enriches property listings available on
the Internet by integrating customizable maps, the latest web 2.0
technologies, contextual information, and neighbourhood guides to support
personal criteria considerations in the house hunter's search and
    Zoocasa's powerful search engine and intuitive user experience offer an
easy way to navigate listings of homes for sale across Canada - by either
clicking on a map or typing into a search box. Consumers can search and
research properties for sale making Zoocasa a smarter way to find the perfect
home online.

    Some of the key features that will help to make Zoocasa an indispensable
tool for house hunters include:

    -  A large, interactive map showing listings in their full context
       including points of interest such as schools, local retail, hospitals
       and more
    -  The ability to narrow, widen or change a search by easily navigating
       on the map
    -  Efficient time-saving features such as the ability to search only new
       listings since a last visit to the site
    -  Ability to filter searches with words such as "fixer uppers",
       "finished basements", "in ground pools" "state-of-the-art kitchens"
       and other terms that people use to describe their homes
    -  Familiar neighbourhood names with detailed descriptions and aggregated
       links to more information on other sites
    -  Ability to track listing activity in a certain area by saving a search
       parameter and receiving alerts when new listings matching a user's
       search criteria are added
    -  Ability to track listing activity for a particular property by saving
       a listing and monitoring changes to its details or status

    The Zoocasa search engine connects potential purchasers with real estate
brokers or agents by indexing and presenting summary detail for listings on
the Internet and directing the house hunter to the original listing broker or
agent web site for more information.
