Most housing searches typically start on Google. Home shoppers want to get a quick snapshot of the best tools to make their house hunting easier. This week, Google rolled out "+1", a new way to let your friends know which sites have earned your stamp of approval. As TechCrunch describes it, "when your Google connections search for content or a site, they will see your +1’s in their search results."
We think this is a great way to make the search faster and to get directly to the sites your friends have already tried and think are useful. That's why we decided to be one of the first real estate websites to add "+1" to our homepage. If you think HotPads is a good place to start the housing search, please take a second and send a +1 our way. Your friends will appreciate it!
