New site for home buyers and sellers
If you're searching online for a home, you've got a new option: Roost (roost.com) launched today with real estate search for 14 metro areas, including both Baltimore and Washington.
Why Roost and not, say, Realtor.com or Zillow or Trulia or Craigslist? You'll have to be the judge of that. Roost thinks people will want to search the site because it's partnering with local multiple-listing services to get the full raft of homes for sale through agents. (Search on "Baltimore" and you'll get 6,410 listings, or at least you would had you looked at 2:48 p.m. as I did.)
