Portland, Oregon – PreservationDirectory.com, the leading online historic preservation resource, has announced the launch of their new partner-website HistoricForSale.com. The new website provides a vast directory of vintage homes and historic commercial properties for sale, real estate agents who specialize in historic houses for sale, and provides comprehensive historic preservation resources.
HistoricForSale.com works closely with PreservationDirectory.com's historic real estate directory to maximize exposure for these wonderful historic homes and commercial properties. Both websites share the same database, allowing HistoricForSale.com to tap into the vast network established over the last 10 years by PreservationDirectory.com. In addition, those seeking to list on either site will have the option of listing, for a small additional fee, on both websites.
According to Tim Cannan, President of PreservationDirectory.com, "Our website has grown over the years into one of the major resources for historic preservation online, and our historic real estate directory has always been one of the most popular components of the website. We are dedicated to providing the most exposure for the historic homes listed on our website, and as such it was a no-brainer to launch HistoricForSale.com. The new resource will greatly increase our reach and go a long way towards meeting the needs of the preservation community. We are confident that HistoricForSale.com will piggyback off the overwhelming success of PreservationDirectory.com.”
The internet has continued to be essential for those seeking to buy a home and HistoricForSale.com will be a key resource for those seeking vintage homes and historic commercial property. According to The 2008 National Association of Realtors® Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers, “87 percent [of buyers] used the Internet” and “buyers most commonly start their search process online and then contact a real estate agent.”
Features of HistoricForSale.com include:
- Listings allow up to 11 photos, complete seller contact information, and unlimited text that describes the property's physical description and history.
- Instant listings – upon submitting listings, they are added within seconds!
- Manage listings 24/7 with password protected members area.
- Upload your photos directly through the listing form (no need to email separately).
