For Dwellicious users this might seems a bit, how should I say….”been there done that”?

Of course you could have the best of both worlds by just creating a Dwellicious bookmark that links back to Trulia!

MetroList Services adds Dwellicious to its popular MetroListMLS.com listings site.
New functionality allows site visitors to easily share properties with others.

Boca Raton, FL—(April 27th, 2009) W&R Studios announced today that MetroList Services, one of the largest MLS providers in California, added Dwellicious integration to it’s popular consumer portal, MetroListMLS.com. MetroListMLS.com currently receives over 300,000 visitors per month.

Dwellicious is a social bookmarking service that acts as a “shopping cart” for consumers as they search for properties online. With Dwellicious, consumers can easily share and discuss their bookmarked properties with friends, family, or real estate professionals. Dwellicious “smart” bookmarks will update users with any changes made to the property such as price, new photos, or whether the property has gone off the market. Bookmarked properties can also be monitored via an RSS feed.

Dwellicious.com is free service to consumers and was launched in January of 2009.

“We are thrilled to work with MetroList®,” began Greg Robertson, co-founder of W&R Studios. “We worked closely with MetroList®’s team to make this the best implementation yet of Dwellicious on a listings portal,” stated Mr. Robertson.

Visitors to MetroListMLS.com will see a Dwellicious “chiclet” on every property. By clicking on the Dwellicious “chiclet”, registered Dwellicious users create a bookmark that is stored on their personal Dwellicious bookmarks page. Bookmarks from other real estate sites can also be stored. Having all their favorite properties in one place makes it easy for users to share and discuss their home search with others.

“Social Media is an interesting new aspect of real estate,” stated Tom Beede, President and CEO of MetroList®. “We are committed to providing new tools that benefit our customers and their clients. Dwellicious is a step in that direction.”

2 new Dwellicious screencasts!

I wanted to announce 2 new Dwellicious screencasts.

The first one is a quick tutorial on how to install the “Add to Dwellicious” bookmarklet to Internet Explorer. Unlike Firefox, Safari, or Chrome where you simply drag the bookmarklet up to your toolbar, Microsoft makes it a bit tricky. I’ve updated the instructions and thought this screencast would be a good complement.

But, the second screencast I’m really excited about! This was done by Maureen McDonald of Demo Girl! She also wrote a great post about the site.

As I written about before I’m am not a big fan of the sound of my recorded voice, most of the time I feel like I’m talking with rocks in my mouth. Not Demo Girl!! She does an excellent job of showing the highlights of the site in a really clear way with good examples.

Thanks Demo Girl!
