For immediate release
Toronto, ON – July 8, 2009 – BuzzBuzzHome has launched a new website (www.buzzbuzzhome.com) providing real estate agents and the public with accurate listing information on almost every new development in Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver. BuzzBuzzHome is Canada’s first service offering complete project data for all new residential developments within these cities. The information on BuzzBuzzHome is provided in a user-friendly, interactive and map based format. It is free and open to everyone.
Prior to the arrival of BuzzBuzzHome, real estate agents and consumers had no centralized source for information on new developments. Although Canada’s Multiple Listing Service (MLS) does a thorough job of indexing ‘resale’ commercial and residential properties, it does not include all ‘new construction projects’ such as condos, homes and town-homes. As a result, purchasers and their sales representatives have had to rely on scattered and sometimes unreliable sources. Matthew Slutsky, president of BuzzBuzzHome says, “The launch of BuzzBuzzHome.com marks a transition from the old method of scouring the web or driving around neighbourhoods scouting A-frames and presentation galleries to the new method of checking one centralized online source that has all the data.”
In contrast to MLS and other online listing services, BuzzBuzzHome employs a team of full time researchers to rapidly integrate planned new developments into its existing database of all current developments. “Buyers can now rely on one source – BuzzBuzzHome – to give them the data they need to make an informed buying decision” says Clifford Peskin, Co-Founder of BuzzBuzzHome.
Slutsky notes that the service is in line with the public’s growing proactive approach to searching and researching real-estate, “Having access to this information empowers consumers and makes them better informed about the overall market and better equipped to make the choice that’s right for them. The service is also important to the industry as it increases, enhances and publicises (for everyone) all the information that’s available.”
BuzzBuzzHome researchers verify the information for each listing at least once every two weeks. As a complimentary feature, BuzzBuzzHome allows some developers to upload information about their project(s) directly to the site.
The BuzzBuzzHome Team works relentlessly to ensure the most accurate information is available in the most user friendly format. Matthew Slutsky oversees the daily operations, and expansion, of BuzzBuzzHome. Prior to founding BuzzBuzzHome, Slutsky worked as Vice President of Development for a major Toronto land development firm specializing in luxury condominiums. Slutsky also founded The Slutsky Group, a specialized land development consulting firm. He holds an M.Sc. from the University of Edinburgh, and an Hon. B.A. from the University of Toronto; both in land development related fields. Clifford Peskin, B.A. is engaged in all aspects of strategic planning and operations at BuzzBuzzHome. Prior to founding BuzzBuzzHome Corp, Peskin founded the successful gourmet diet delivery service, Nutrition in Motion Ltd, which operates in Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal. More recently he founded the real estate acquisition corporation, C M Peskin Property Management Ltd. Slutsky, Peskin, their technical developers, marketing/advertising firm and researchers are passionate about their work. They are certain that in future years buyers of new homes will not be able to imagine a time that such a centralized and comprehensive listing service was not readily available to the public.
