KELOWNA, BC, Feb. 7, 2018 /CNW/ - RE/MAX of Western Canada has launched an industry-leading initiative, in partnership with Landcor Data Corporation, which allows remax.ca visitors to discover estimated values of homes throughout the province of British Columbia.
Consumers can find out the value of their home—or any home they're interested in—in less than 10 seconds by visiting remax.ca, typing in any British Columbia address (that isn't already listed by a real estate agent), and then selecting the desired address from the drop-down menu. The home value estimate will appear at the top of the searched property page.
"RE/MAX understands today's consumers want as much access to information as possible. The remax.ca Home Value Estimate Tool gives accurate, up-to-date estimated values of properties within seconds," says Elton Ash, Regional Executive Vice President, RE/MAX of Western Canada.
"Anecdotally, we've already received a lot of positive feedback regarding the usefulness of this tool during our pilot project in Kelowna. Eventually, we hope to provide free home estimates for communities throughout the entire country."
Rudy Nielsen, Landcor President & Founder added, "I have been involved in real estate since 1961—both as an agent and a multi-office owner—and have admired the innovative leadership the RE/MAX brand has represented within the industry. My team is very pleased to work with RE/MAX of Western Canada, and we are very excited to be part of yet another leap forward."
RE/MAX Kelowna Sales Associates have already begun to spread the word about this innovative new capability to their clients following a successful pilot program.
"The RE/MAX Home Value Estimate Tool gives our Sales Associates a huge competitive advantage. To our knowledge, there is no other real estate organization in Canada that provides this type of information on their website," says RE/MAX Kelowna Owner/Managing Broker, Peter Kirk.
"We also see the incredible value of empowering our clients by giving them as much information about the local market as possible."
RE/MAX has made the tool available on all British Columbian Sales Associates' remax.ca agent detail pages. To test out the RE/MAX Home Value Estimate Tool, visit remax.ca.
