Some really exciting changes are happening at Roost

Expanded Data for Your “Real Estate” Tab

“Roost now provides data from Zillow as an improvement to the previous “Active Listing” data.  This set of aggregate charts provides average square foot & dollar amount per listing, median home value, home value distribution, year built, and commute time.  These changes will allow you to be a greater resource for your potential clients and give you expanded market coverage.  (And your visitors will never be prompted to go to another tab or site.)

If you’d like to turn this data source off, visit the “Facebook Tab” area in the Roost Social Media Toolkit and uncheck the “Zillow” option on the “Local Data” page.  This week the “Active Listing” area on your tab will migrate to this fresh and frequently-updated Market Data.

Premium Features
You’ve asked, and we’ve built!  In the coming weeks, you’ll be able to upgrade to Roost Premium and use following features:

  • Multiple Locations:  Provide tab visitors local data for up to six markets
  • Homesearch Module:  Drive tab visitors to the homesearch/IDX solution on your website
  • Unlimited Featured Listings:  Feature, promote, and manage all your listings

This information was provided to the Real Estate community via an email announcement which we felt was important to share with our readers here at RETechWorld.  Though this information is NOT OUR original content, we feel our friends on the Roost Team will appreciate us spreading the word!  A special thanks and “Shout Out” to for their efforts and diligence in providing value added tools and information to their fan base.

This is a really interesting concept, one I’m sure we’ll see unfolding sooner than later.  Would love to hear your thoughts, both good and bad, as to why this will or won’t work in the future of on-line banking?
