New SHARE feature for property listings

When you now display the details for a property, you’ll see a “Share” option in the buttons to the right of the photo (see graphic below). If you click on the Share button, it will bring up a window of over 45 places you can share this listing. Email it to your spouse at work, post it on Facebook for your family to see, Twitter it, post it on you Blog or many other social networking sites.

We think this is a great tool to let others see properties you are looking at (or see your own home that you have listed). If you do have a property listed, the more exposure you can give it, the better!

It also allows you to save listings to a personal Sharebox you can get when registering on ShareThis.com. You have always been able to save your listings on MLS Search tool itself but this requires you to register on our site. We are fully aware that other real estate sites use the “save properties” and “email new listings” features as a way to get you to supply your contact info for a high-pressure real estate agent to hound you. Any of you that have used this feature on our site know we don’t contact you when you register and only when you contact us to ask a question or for more assistance. But, we know some people have been burned by registering on other real estate sites and may want to stay anonymous until they are ready to contact a professional Realtor (like us!). This new Share option allows you to save listings that interest you but remain anonymous by saving them on the ShareThis.com site.
