Real estate board launches home listings website
The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) has created a new home listing website on its Realtylink.org platform.
The new site provides a more modern online experience with enhanced search and filtering capabilities. Visitors can create a profile, save their searches and favourite listings. Search results can be organized in a map, gallery, or list-based view.
The new Realtylink was created in partnership with Centris, a Quebec-based company that operates Centris.ca – the most visited real estate listing website in Quebec and the third most frequented in Canada.
Realtylink.org showcases MLS® listings for homes in the Lower Mainland, Vancouver Island, and northern regions of B.C.
“We designed the new Realtylink to help make home buyers more knowledgeable about the homes available for sale around our province,” says Brad Scott, REBGV CEO. “It’s a powerful tool based on proven technology. We’ll continue to work with our Centris partner to add features and data to improve and grow the site over time.”
The site also allows users to explore a home’s location through embedded Google Maps options and assess a home’s proximity to amenities through the Walk Score® rating feature.
“As a real estate association–owned company, Centris is proud to partner with REBGV to provide a world-class online experience for BC home buyers and sellers,” says Éric Charbonneau, president of Centris.
Listing information on the site is updated every 20 minutes, pulling the most up-to-date data from the MLS® systems operated by the Greater Vancouver, Fraser Valley, Chilliwack, BC Northern, and Vancouver Island real estate boards.
Beyond home listings, the site also contains the latest real estate news and statistics to help inform home buyers and sellers.
Visitors to www.realtylink.org today have the option to use the existing website or the new version. We’ll make the full transition to the new site in early April.
