Redfin Collections Let You Collect Real Estate Photos
Seattle-based Redfin said Wednesday that it has launched a new feature called Redfin Collections, which lets users share listing photos with their friends, real estate agents, and real estate aficianados. The new feature--which looks to be inspired by the popularity of photo-centric sites like Pinterest--allows users to collect their own collection of different photos, whether because of architecture, gardens, ktichens, or even just quirky photos from listings. Redfin said its service does include some real-estate specific privacy tools, including allowing owners to remove photos once the house is no longer for sale, and the ability to give listing agents attribution for those photos. Collection currently includes such things as photos of fancy cars found in listings; celebrity homes; and artwork found in homes for sale.
