Home Sale Maximizer™ Integrates With AgentView

Emeryville, California (EastBayDaily) — HomeGain, a leading provider of online marketing solutions that connect real estate agents and brokers with homebuyers and sellers, today announced the integration of Home Sale Maximizer™ with AgentView.

Home Sale Maximizer is an online resource that helps homeowners identify key repairs for getting their homes ready for sale, and that can result in a higher sale price for their homes. A checklist of easy improvements that can be made to each area of the house is available as a web tool as well as in a printable brochure. Home Sale Maximizer contains the configured results of HomeGain’s recent survey of over 2,000 real estate agents nationwide and combines a list of the top 10 moderately priced do-it-yourself home improvements that will benefit homeowners most when they sell their homes.

The integration presents consumers with an additional tool that they can use in conjunction with other AgentView real estate content. AgentView, HomeGain’s latest product, showcases real estate agents’ listings, profiles and blogs. AgentView also features local information and HomeGain’s home valuation tool where consumers can also get an instant home valuation estimate. Consumers can easily toggle among the AgentView content tabs while maintaining contact with the featured real estate agent.

“Home Sale Maximizer is an ideal companion for agents who want to provide more value to their clients,” said Louis Cammarosano, HomeGain’s General Manager. “In a challenging market in which homes may not sell for months, it is important to take extra steps to prepare your home for sale. Home Sale Maximizer, which uses information pulled from HomeGain’s survey of more than 2000 real estate agents, provides potential home sellers with suggested home improvements that will best increase their resale value.”
