Realtor.com unveils agent-client discussion forum
SAN JOSE, Calif. – Feb. 9, 2016 – Realtor.com announced the launch of House Talk, a new online community created to help people who visit realtor.com get answers to their home-related questions.
Realtor.com – operated by News Corp subsidiary Move Inc. and owned by the National Association of Realtors® – says House Talk is "a resource for all things real estate … Whether you're buying or selling a home, want to share a home improvement tip, or have a question about a rental lease – House Talk is the place for you."
Rather than participate in a forum, users looking for fast answers can also search for key discussion topics to see if the issue has already been addressed.
Conversation topics currently trending include:
"House Talk was born from a desire to alleviate uncertainty and give homebuyers, sellers, renters and dreamers a forum to ask questions and share their own experiences," says Tapan Bhat, chief product officer for realtor.com. "When you have someone ready to help, suddenly things seem more manageable."
Anyone can join the conversation by creating a community account at community.realtor.com. Participants can then click the "start a discussion" button to ask a question or "reply" in an established thread. Users also have the option to "like" a discussion and upload photos or videos to their posts.© 2016 Florida Realtors®
