ListingsInWilliamsburgVA.com gives consumers mobile-friendly access to real estate listings in Williamsburg, Va.

SAN DIEGO (Sept. 24, 2014) – The Williamsburg Area Association of REALTORS® (WAAR) launched ListingsInWilliamsburgVA.com earlier this week. The new website is a consumer real estate search portal that is powered by Point2. ListingsInWilliamsburgVA.com is designed to offer consumers who are interested in real estate in Williamsburg, Va., a mobile-friendly way to search for properties, locate a local real estate agent, learn about upcoming open houses and access area information.

Website visitors can filter homes for sale, apartments for rent and new listings in Williamsburg based on a variety of user-friendly criteria. Property information originates from the local multiple listings service (MLS), and listings are displayed alongside the listing agent’s contact information. The Point2 MLS and Association Consumer Portal presents neighborhood demographics and detailed parcel maps for each listing as available.

“The Williamsburg Area Association of REALTORS® is thrilled to be providing a powerful online consumer search tool to draw exposure to our membership,” said Linda R. Kinsman, chief executive officer at WAAR. “With timely updates and accurate data sourced directly from our MLS, Point2 has helped us create the most comprehensive real estate search site in our market.”

A tool at the top of every page, called “Find a REALTOR®,” helps buyers and sellers connect with knowledgeable WAAR agents and brokers. Quick links accessible from the main page provide additional resources for consumers, including a mortgage calculator, local news channels and a historical guide to colonial Williamsburg.

“We congratulate the leadership of the Williamsburg Association of REALTORS® for taking this step on behalf of their brokers, agents and consumers,” said Linda Moola, director of sales, syndication and MLS and association services for Point2. “There is no better information on the availability of properties than the data that originates from the MLS, and I am certain this will become a popular destination site for those interested in homes in the Williamsburg area.”
