Yahoo revamps real-estate site
Yahoo was set to unveil on Tuesday a revamped Yahoo Real Estate site that offers interactive maps, access to millions of home valuations, mortgage tools and access to specific information about neighborhoods from Yahoo Local. Yahoo Real Estate will also offer market snapshots that include average home prices, historical price trends, local mortgage interest rates and links to specific neighborhood information on Yahoo Answers.
In addition, Yahoo Search will have shortcuts to listings, mortgage rates and house valuations. Through an agreement Yahoo has with the Prudential, home buyers will be able to search Prudential Real Estate for information on property they see offline.
