Subscription-based news website newsday.com has relaunched its real estate section.
The relaunched real estate section is powered by newsday.com parent company Cablevision's Optimum Homes service. The Optimum Homes property search is also accessible through the iO Digital Cable TV channel.
Subscriptions for unlimited access to newsday.com articles start at US$5 per week, however access to the real estate section is free for property seekers. Listings are subscription based, ranging from $99 for a 30-day online ad to $235 for a package including print ads in the Newsday newspaper.
paidcontent.org reports that despite a still-sluggish real estate market, Cablevision's strong presence in New York and Long Island could make this latest real estate classifieds venture profitable.
