Hoperty.com makes shopping for new real estate developments easier

Vancouver, B.C., Feb. 19, 2013
— House hunting just got easier with Hoperty.com, a free online resource that launched today to provide home-buyers with aggregate information about new real estate developments in Metro Vancouver. It’s the first map-based search engine of its kind that delivers the most extensive selection of new real estate development properties on one website.

How does it work? The user enters a price range, number of bedrooms and bathrooms, and instantly sees red pin maps with new condos and townhouses for sale that meet the search criteria in a given area

“Our goal is to make finding new real estate developments easier,” said Hoperty’s president Raveen Seran. “Hoperty is a one-stop resource dedicated to helping home buyers, realtors and developers find and share information about new real estate developments spanning Vancouver to Abbotsford.”hoperty1

The idea behind Hoperty came from Seran’s previous experience when he was a buyer and later worked as a realtor helping clients looking to purchase a new home. He was surprised by the amount of time and energy required to learn about new real estate projects.

New real estate projects are seldom listed on the Multiple Listing Service, which means that finding condo and townhome development information can be time-consuming.

“I invested a considerable amount of time conducting online research, scouring newspapers, commuting, and visiting presentation centres to obtain detailed property information and thought to myself, ‘there must be a better way’,” explained Seran.

“When consumers are considering one of life’s biggest financial transactions, easily accessible, detailed information about new real estate developments amalgamated on one site helps buyers make well-informed decisions.”

Hoperty simplifies the search process for homebuyers by delivering useful real estate development information from the comfort of your own computer. It provides easy access to new real estate projects with unique features for buyers, Realtors® and real estate developers so that they are always up-to-date.
