MLS PARTNERS WITH BUILDERS UPDATE
Multiple Listing Service of Hilton Head Island has partnered with Builders Update to provide data about new construction to the listing service’s members. The Builders Update tools on hhimls.com will inform members about offerings at new communities in the Lowcountry. Bill Gaul, chief executive officer of Builders Update, said the website was built “by agents for agents” in collaboration with developers. According to the National Association of Realtors, 65% of new home construction is sold through the help of a real estate agent. With few homes for sale in many local communities, agents representing buyers told HHIMLS that they needed to explore new construction opportunities. HHIMLS facilitated more than $4 billion in real estate transactions last year for properties in South Carolina and Georgia.
