New online resource for home shoppers around Victoria

vicnews.com offers another service for busy web readers

Real estate hunters have another tool to check out listings of homes on the web.

Black Press, weekly publisher of the News and Real Estate Victoria‘s print publication, has added an online feature to its real estate offerings.

Flyerboard, which can be found along the righthand column at vicnews.com, is a bulletin board-style graphic listing on which Real Estate Victoria property ads are available to view online.

“We see it as another way to connect readers with realtors,” Black Press sales director Oliver Sommer said of the new feature. “Homes are a big part of everybody’s lives and this serves it up in a unique way.”

Viewers can click on individual listings to see photos, a map to find the property, and contact information of various kinds for the listing realtor, including a link to their web page.

A “view all” tab allows the web reader to see all of the properties listed in that week’s Real Estate Victoria.

“And the information is social media friendly,” said Real Estate Victoria managing supervisor Val Mackie. “You can share it, make a comment or respond to the realtor directly from the ad.”

Having the listings online increases the potential viewership of the ads in a big way, she added, especially since Black Press Greater Victoria’s community newspapers offer all their news, sports, business and entertainment offerings on a single website at vicnews.com.
