Why you should use Point2 Real Estate Service | Becoming an agent

Updated: Apr 6, 2021

We are proud to feature Point2Homes, the real estate listings portal of our sister company, Point2. Having undergone a transition to a new location (, it now offers both real estate listings and property data. And while we’re at it, we want to tell you a little bit about the company itself.

ACCORDING TO A recent study by the National Association of Realtors, 90% of home buyers search online and shoppers perform an average of 11 searches before taking action on a real estate site. In addition to sites like Zillow and Trulia, Point2 Homes is a site you should consider when doing your Mexico Home Search. It’s got some features that can have you staring at the computer late into the evening.

First of all, like other sites, Point2 Homes has a range of search tools for sales and rentals, but the one that really caught our eye was the parcel maps with overlays that provide lots of local information. In the Houston area, there are many overlays like a heat map (dollars per square foot), school filters, and year built. With new residential developments springing up all over Houston, it’s easy to get caught up in the hype. The parcel maps on Point2 Homes show you what’s underneath the surface, allowing you to visualize your new neighbourhood and even pinpoint the best blocks.

Another reason why you should use Point2 Homes is for the detailed Property Data Reports from their sister website Property Shark. With information like the floor area ratio and current and projected tax value, you’ll have a deeper understanding of what you’re getting yourself into before you decide to buy. In addition, historical sales information lets you track the property’s value over time, giving you more insight into a property’s value. Savvy homebuyers are increasingly doing their own comparisons and detailed property research. By creating a login on Point2 Homes, you can access Property Data Reports on up to four properties for free.

Also, if you are a real estate agent or brokerage, the Point2 Agent offering has many resources available to help you grow and manage your business, including agent websites, lead management, social media tools, and listing syndication.
