Foreclosure.Com Unveils Cutting-Edge Digital Image Technology to Enhance its Real Estate Listings

January 17, 2008

Foreclosure.com has selected to use Pictometry image technology on its Web site for preforeclosure and foreclosure listings, offering visitors access to high-resolution images of homes and neighborhoods throughout the United States.

Pictometry allows users to view landmarks, roads and complete municipalities from multiple directions (North, South, East and West) and angles with just a few mouse clicks. In fact, features such as a house, building, street light — even a fire hydrant — can be seen in their entirety thanks to the leading-edge innovation.

For example, with Pictometry, Foreclosure.com visitors can drill down and see front doors, backdoors, windows and other home features.

“As a real estate investor, one of the most important details when searching for a great deal is the exterior condition of the home,” said Foreclosure.com President and CEO, Brad Geisen. “Even if it’s just a shot of the outside, that one photo provides a potential buyer with a good sense of what is for sale. Pictometry ensures that our visitors get this all-important first look.”

Pictometry, according to Geisen, provides site visitors with amazing access to properties and real estate from all angles.

In addition, the aerial images provide a unique neighborhood perspective, which is uncommon for the traditional photos that brokers and Realtors® often upload to their listings. In short, Pictometry images are above and beyond traditional images on real estate listings.

“Foreclosure.com already provides visitors with educational materials, resources and contact information for each of our more than 1.2 million listings to help them make informed purchasing decisions,” said Geisen. “Thanks to this state-of-the-art technology we are able to enhance this important — and sometimes once-in-a-lifetime — experience that much more.”
