ad-shopping_300Wallyhood is pleased to welcome a new sponsor, local real estate start-up Rebls:

Rebls lets Wallingford homeowners instantly see who’s shopping for their home just by entering their address. As a homeowner, it’s hard to ever really know if there’s interest for your home unless you put it up for sale. Rebls changes that by giving homeowners the power to track demand and see potential buyers for their home without going on the market, showing their address, or talking to a professional before they’re ready.

If you’re thinking about buying, you can enter a search term like “Wallingford” on Rebls and automatically see a list of PreMarket homes in the area that aren’t available anywhere else. Rebls also gives buyers and homeowners the power to connect directly through a free profile if they choose. If a potential deal arises, you can work with one of the many agents Rebls partners with who will charge you a reduced commission since you’ve already made steps toward finding your own home or buyer.
