If you’re looking for the latest real estate innovation on the web, then you’d do well to visit HomeLight. Of course, if you are a homeowner looking to find a good agent to help you sell your house or on the lookout for great properties, HomeLight will be just as useful to you.
Backed by Google Ventures and Crosslink Capital, HomeLight is basically a real estate realtor search engine. The site boasts of over 2 million agents, all of whom purportedly have not paid to be listed on HomeLight. The good thing about HomeLight though is that it narrows down the agents for you to find your best match based on your city, whether you are buying or selling a home, the kind of property, price range, and other preferences. It is also really easy to use and will actually give you the agent’s statistics to help you choose your realtor better.
The only downside perhaps is that it only lists US realtors so those buying or selling a house in Osaka, Japan or some other country are left in the cold.
