Announcing the Official Roll-Out of the “Sarasota Real Estate Resource Guide”!!!

I wanted to notify the world that I am officially launching my new full-service real estate website, the “Sarasota Real Estate Resource Guide” or as well as

My website is geared toward people who are considering buying or selling property on the Suncoast of Florida.  I am a licensed Realtor in the state of Florida, and possess a Master’s degree in Finance.  I have been working very hard at creating this new website.  It is my first endeavor into the coding world.  I hope that you will try it out and find some value in its applications.

As I said, the site is geared toward buyers and sellers of Suncoast real estate.  There are a variety of pages in the site that discuss the different areas and neighborhoods and schools of our wonderful coastal cities.  But the search features are sure to be the most used on the website.  I therefore feel that I should take a moment to explain the different ways one can explore properties for sale on the site.

The first way one can search is via the home page’s QUICK SEARCH.  Here you can choose among a limited number of search parameter fields.  Once a user has input their parameter(s), the FIND HOMES button is clicked.  The user will then see the results of their search below.  Whenever a search result is shown, either the VIEW DETAILS button can be clicked or the picture of the property itself.  This will open up a new page containing more detailed information on that particular property.  On this details page there are typically virtual tour links that a user can click to get even further pictorial details.

Next to the FIND HOMES button is another button called ADVANCED SEARCH.  By clicking here, the user opens up many more search parameters from which to choose.  Details are shown similarly to the QUICK SEARCH.  But perhaps the coolest search is the one that is used by clicking the INTERACTIVE MAP button on the left sidebar of the homepage.  Once there, a banner instructs users to “CLICK ME”.  This opens another abbreviated search parameter overlay with SEARCH button.  The resulting properties will then show up as blue dot icons on the map allowing users to see exactly where the prospective properties are located.  The user can pan and zoom the map with the mouse or manual controls on the left of screen.  The blue icons representing properties can also be clicked to bring up a mini-picture of the property.  If this picture of the property is then clicked, the associated detailed property page will come up in a new window giving the user access to the same data as they could have found on the ADVANCED SEARCH page.

The map also allows users to switch between the typical map view or to a satellite image view, a la Google Maps.  Finally, there is also a little yellow man icon on the map controls on the left side of screen.  Users can click and drag this little yellow man and pull him on to the map and drop him next to one of the blue icons, representing houses.  The website will then take the user to a street-view which allows the user to see the neighborhood up close.  Users can even walk down the street and turn around.  The website allows users to VIEW FAVORITES, however, they must register on the website and save the property as a favorite before this will work.

I expect that the site will continue to grow and modify fairly consistently going forward.  I am already creating some new targeted linked searches on the Longboat Key page.  I expect to continue expanding along these lines.  If you have any suggestions, comments or concerns, please drop me a line.  My contact info is all over the site…lol
