New design & interface
When start writing in the search box additional parameters are displayed.
As marketed before, one is now able to search multiple cities or streets in one search.
The list of results is cleaner.
The new object information page.
For more details, the user is redirected to the brokers main page for the listing.
As far as I am concerned Hemnet has added following new functionality.
Search multiple addresses
Direct in the search box, see above.
Displays the number of days on the market
Total cost of ownership
For apartments (Co-ops) a total cost, including a potential financing set up, is displayed.
For sure a more modern feeling using the service and it's more user friendly. However, I was hoping for more features, especially after been looking at the earlier mock-ups. Hopefully, there is more to come.
There is soo much more that could be done to making the process of home searching more efficient. More on that topic in a later post.
On the other hand, I'm a bit impressed that Hemnet, having the biggest agent associations as largest owners, has started to display the number of days a listing has been on the market. I guess there were some discussions regaring that... (It's has been done for some while by http://www.booli.se/)
