SAN FRANCISCO, CA – March 24, 2011 – (RealEstateRama) — Homebuyers often have many homes to check out as they make the rounds searching for the one that’s just right. Zephyr has removed the hassle from that chore with its new Home Tour tool, which plots out multi-destination driving directions to create a customized home tour.
Here’s how it works. After reviewing available properties, click on the ones that are of interest, and then click the “Home Tour” link. Enter a starting address and, with an assist from Google technology, it will plot the most sensible route around all the selected properties. By emailing a link to yourself, the route can be easily accessed on a smartphone during the tour. Also, multiple tours can be saved (for example, one for Saturday and one for Sunday) and are easily available for future access.
Traversing about the city can often be a challenge, and Zephyr’s Home Tour tool will help keep that to a minimum. Zephyr’s website is the first to offer this convenient feature, saving home shoppers considerable time and effort.
“We continue to explore and provide opportunities to enhance the home buying experience,” stated Melody Foster-Brown, Zephyr’s Director of Marketing. “This new feature is available to all our registered users, and we anticipate more new benefits in the ongoing evolution of our website.”
Zephyr’s website, www.zephyrsf.com, offers in-depth coverage of the 89 neighborhoods of San Francisco, featuring market trends, profiles, videos, maps, homes available, open homes, demographics and school information. Visitors can register for a free MyZephyr account to search sold properties, save favorites, receive new listing email alerts and price change updates, and create customized home tours.
