    So I’ve got a question:

    Does the Homesdatabase system send the listing office data on exactly what the buyer is looking for?

    Our new map based system does and if I was a buyer I wouldn’t want that information to get into the hands of someone representing the seller in a negotiation.

    As and example we helped a family buy a home this summer and they really wanted a 5 bedroom for their four young boys. There are only a few five bedroom homes in their area that come on the market each year. I wouldn’t wanted the seller to have known that during the negotiation.

    I guess I think buyers should be told that information is being collected, just like buyers need to be told about agency relationships.

    Congratulations on the new system and thanks for the post!

    Jon

    So far I hate this new homesdatabase.
    Very hard to follow and use, didn’t bring up listing in zip that I entered, I entered 20180 Lovettsville VA for search criteria, and listings came up from Louisa County. Very strange.
    The original homesdatabase is much better.

    I just wrote about this myself. I never tried the old one but I find this very easy to use.

    Jeff,
    I just tried a zip code search 20180 and the area came right up.

      Jim, what don’t you like about it? I’d love to send recommendations back to them to let them know why users are complaining…

    I don’t like this new version because it makes it difficult to search for specific neighborhoods in DC. For example, with the previous version, I could select to search for homes in Brookland, Shaw, American Univ., etc. Now, if you don’t know the zip code to these neighborhoods, it’s kind of difficult to do that.
    Also, before, you could leave condos out of your search. I have no interest in condos, but now it seems like I’m forced to acknowledge them, which may be the ultimate intention.
    If there is a way around the things I complained about and I wasn’t bright enough to figure it out, I apologize.
    But, the layout is nice, and it’s nice to have the map built in. It’s also nice to be able to search based on heating/cooling preferences (this probably was an option before, but I forget). I was actually initially quite pleased, until I saw that the way I had searched was a bit hampered. It’s a mixed bag for me.

    The new site is inferior to the former site…which I used frequently.
    I much prefer the former site because of ease of use and the shoices you could make. Some changes are a step backwards and discourage usage. Please return to the former layout.

    I HATE this website. Bring back the old one. You put in a city and zip code and it brings up houses in another state. I never look up houses anymore because the new website is soooooo bad.
