The Local Media Consortium, a nationwide alliance of leading local media outlets, has partnered with HomeFinder.com to provide consumers nationwide with local access to more than four million real estate listings on HomeFinder.com.
The Local Media Consortium (LMC) represents more than 55 local media companies in top markets across the United States and Puerto Rico covering more than 1,200 individual publications. LMC has an audience footprint of more than 470 monthly million unique visitors (aggregate), and LMC member companies serve more than four billion page views monthly.
HomeFinder.com powers the real estate search for leading media companies including The McClatchy Company, Tribune Company, Gannett Company Inc. and GateHouse Media. HomeFinder.com’s partnership with the Local Media Consortium will expand this media reach, so consumers both in and outside these markets can experience the same real estate search experience.
“Providing consumers with easy access to accurate real estate listings is a great service our local media outlets will now add to a solid lineup of digital products and services,” says Christian A. Hendricks, chair of the Local Media Consortium’s Executive Committee and vice president of Interactive Media for The McClatchy Company. “HomeFinder.com’s experience delivering superior real estate products to consumers and real estate agents, as well as its dedication to working with local media companies, will benefit our members, customers and consumers for years to come.”
HomeFinder.com provides its visitors with an easy-to-navigate home search experience via desktop and mobile. Its long-standing relationships with MLS’s and real estate brokerages nationwide ensure the integrity and selection of digital real estate listing content.
“We’re excited to provide an exponentially larger consumer audience access to HomeFinder.com’s real estate listings,” says Doug Breaker, president and CEO of HomeFinder.com. “Our partnership also provides us with the potential to increase our broker and data relationships, to only continue improving the listing content quality we can offer consumers.”
The LMC goes through an extensive, months-long process to choose partner companies, including polling media members about their needs and priorities, and vetting only the highest-quality service providers who have expressed interest in working with the Consortium. LMC members are not bound to work exclusively with specific service providers, but the benefit to both members and the service providers is significant.
