Hello everyone - We're getting close to turning on a new details page for New York!
It's a pretty major re-design of the page, based on extensive user feedback and requests over the years, some necessary engineering work, and a whole lotta love from the Redfin team. It has all of the same information as before (in some cases re-organized), and we'll hope you love it as much as we do.
In addition, we're adding Redfin Activity Stats (in a new "Activity Section"), so you can get a sense for how many people have viewed, favorited, x'd out and toured with us for this listing, and all time.
Once it goes live, we'd love to hear from you: What do you love? What do you dislike? What else would you like to see? We're going to be making improvements, and your input will help drive the process.
Well that explains the issue with the loss of information. My first impressions, sad to say, is that the new format is a problem. Hard to navigate, not a step forward. Also, the map view is much worse. I don't want to have to jump over to google to get a neighborhood look, the prior setup was better. I'm not sure what benefit there is to counting views, but I wish you had more information on the listings history. I've seen a number of houses go on and off market, and the "days" count gets reset to zero even though its been over a year. If you wanted to make a real improvement, try to fix the lost listing history issue so that buyers can get an accurate picture of the listing prices. Redfin had seemed more fair to buyers than your traditional broker webpages. It's nice to get all the info you need from Redfin rather than searching other sales history valuation sites. Other than those suggestions, Redfin has been the top site for me and my relatives. Keep it up!
