Real estate search site Zoocasa recently launched Zoopraisal, which allows Canadians, for the first time, to get online home price estimates online, and at no charge.
“The launch of Zoopraisals addresses one of our most requested features,” says Butch Langlois, president of Zoocasa. “Knowing the current price of your home is the kick-off point for many Canadians as they consider making their next move.”
The service is provided through a licensing agreement with Centract Settlement Services. “Centract possesses one of the largest national databases of residential real estate prices and information in Canada,” says Rob Soja, vice-president of business development at Centract. “We’re really excited to be working with Zoocasa to provide home price estimates to Canadian consumers nationally.”
The Zoopraisal report includes an indication of a home’s price that is powered by Centract and based on like properties in their neighbourhood. It also provides additional content from the Zoocasa database and its content partnerships, including detailed neighbourhood demographics.
Langlois says: “Consumers are spending an average of 11 months in their home search process, predominantly online, and Zoocasa wants to support these consumers and allow them to conveniently connect with real estate professionals across the entire process including Realtors, mortgage lenders or other such experts.”
