What so many visits?
Consumer confidence is at the highest level in over a decade. Job creation, easing of credit loans and consumer confidence in the economy has led to a resurged interest in housing. Interest rates are still low, making purchasing a home even more appealing. Since housing values are starting to rise in most areas, buyers feel confident in purchasing a home once again.

Another reason for a record-setting number of views is also the fact that Sibcy Cline’s web site is the dominant real estate site for the region. It pulls in substantially more web traffic than any other local real estate broker.
The site offers buyers an easy-to-use and accurate place for researching homes. Viewers can easily see large photos of homes along with many details including house specs, community information and an interactive location map.
Advanced searches for homes on the web site can include: new listings, price changes, open houses as well as new construction filters. Buyers can preview homes by city/suburb, school district or county. There are even more filters for home search including price and home type.
The web site makes home search easy.
