NYC's StreetEasy®, a leading real estate marketplace in the city, has announced a new platform to simplify the management of their listings. Listing Tools is replacing the current listing entry system for agents. There will be a free version and a premium version offering more perks. The premium version, which was created in collaboration with Douglas Elliman, will be released to agents first. The updated free version will follow shortly after. Both will include a new website interface and a agent-centric mobile app.
The new feature is for agents who manually enter listings properties directly onto StreetEasy. This takes up about 50% of the listings on the platform that are manually entered and managed by these agents. Listing Tools uses input from the agent community to reflect the fields and features that agents use most when entering and managing their listings. The new platform gives agents a more simplified way to enter data and market their listings.
Listing Tools offers the following benefits to agents:
"The NYC real estate market is unlike any other market in the country. We spent the last year focused on better understanding the challenges local agents faced and how we could improve their day-to-day with technology," said Matt Daimler, GM of StreetEasy. "As a result, we built something that marries the importance of data accuracy with convenience, and ultimately a platform that empowers agents to focus on what they do best: advising buyers, sellers and renters on their real estate decisions. We're proud to work with forward-thinking brokerages and agents to usher this next phase of tech into the NYC real estate market."
Over the next few months, StreetEasy will slowly release the phases of its new platform, starting with the mobile app this spring.
StreetEasy's announcement of Listing Tools continues the company's expansion of its marketing and business services in New York City, helping agents in the area to maximize business opportunities and connect them with thousands of buyers, sellers, and renters in NYC. Listing Tools is just another new feature offered by StreetEasy, alongside Premier Agent, Building Experts, StreetEasy PRO, and the Featured Listings programs.
