Homes.com Now Offered as Syndication Channel

We are excited to announce our partnership with Homes.com, a leading provider of real estate marketing in the U.S., visited by more than 13 million consumers each month.

Currently, Homes.com receives REcolorado listings from ListHub. In a few weeks, Homes.com will switch to receiving listings from the REcolorado Syndication portal. Between now and then, you can update your new and existing listings to opt in to Homes.com as a syndication channel. We will notify you as soon as Homes.com has made the switch from ListHub to the REcolorado Syndication portal.

Read our special announcement to learn more about selecting Homes.com as a syndication channel.

Our goal in adding more channels to the REcolorado Syndication Program is to protect our members’ data, preserve data accuracy, include fair display rules, keep the listing broker prominent, and limit derivative products.

Stay informed with the latest information on the REcolorado Syndication Program. For tips, How To’s, and resources, visit the Syndication page on REcolorado.com.

New Home Plans and Communities Live on REcolorado.com

Do you have clients that are interested in new construction? Consumers are now able to search for new home plans and new home communities on REcolorado.com. Two new tabs have been added to the top navigation bar on REcolorado.com – New Home Plans and New Home Communities. Click these tabs to search new construction properties just as you would any other.

If you’d like more information on how to enter new construction listings in Matrix, please read our How To document.

Why don’t I see Homes.com as a syndication channel?

Managing Brokers have control over which syndication channels are available to their offices. The Managing Broker’s selected syndication channels will appear for listing brokers in the Matrix Internet Display Tab. If your Managing Broker has not selected Homes.com as a channel for your office, please contact them for further information.

You can still input the listing if your Managing Broker has not made Homes.com an option for your office. Choose from the available syndication channels, submit the listing, and return later to add Homes.com if your Managing Broker has made it available.

For more information on syndication, visit our Syndication page on REcolorado.com.
