Nextdoor is a social media network designed to help neighbors communicate, and now, browse homes for sale in their neighborhood.
Earlier this year, REcolorado announced the launch of Nextdoor as the newest syndication channel available through the MLS.
What is Syndication?
This means that the listing agent can choose to have information about the home for sale shared and visible on the Nextdoor app. Syndication provides added visibility for home sellers by having the home for sale included on multiple platforms.
All homes for sale listed in REcolorado’s MLS, or multiple listing service, are always visible on REcolorado.com – Colorado’s favorite home search site. This ensures accurate, up-to-date information for Colorado home buyers.
Home sellers can work with their real estate agent to determine if syndication is right for their listing and which syndication channels to include. For more information, connect with an experienced REALTOR or real estate agent.
What is Nextdoor?
Nextdoor is a social media platform for neighbors. As a private social network, users must verify their address in order to view content related to their neighborhood. Learn more about Nextdoor here.
Users can use Nextdoor to communicate with their neighbors in a variety of ways. They can ask for local recommendations, organize a watch group, post updates about a lost dog, and even find the best neighborhoods to trick-or-treat. And now, users can see homes for sale in their neighborhood in the Nextdoor app or website.
Find Homes for Sale on Nextdoor
If you haven’t already, you’ll need to sign up for a Nextdoor account. Because the social platform is based on neighborhoods, Nextdoor requires users to verify your address to join. You’ll receive a postcard in the mail to prove you actually live in the neighborhood.
After you’ve joined, you’ll be able to browse Nextdoor online or with the app (Android or iPhone). To see homes for sale, tap or click on the navigation menu and select “Real Estate.” You’ll see a new page with nearby listings from local agents. Scroll to browse homes for sale in your neighborhood.
Flip through photos, read the description of the home, and contact the listing agent. Listings syndicated to Nextdoor through REcolorado will always include the listing broker as the primary contact. The listing broker is the most accurate source of information about the home for sale. Click the link to the “listing website” to see full details about the home for sale on REcolorado.com.
