The Wall Street Journal‘s guide to property, RealEstateJournal.com, has teamed up with Builder Homesite, a consortium of 36 of the nation’s largest home builders, to create a new-home listings section, Builder Homesite said today.

The “New Construction” area on RealEstateJournal.com contains hundreds of thousands of searchable new-home listings containing descriptions, photos, maps, plans and more, the companies said.

RealEstateJournal.com’s New Construction section is powered by Builder Homesite’s flagship product, New Home Source. New Home Source provides prospective home buyers with comprehensive information and selection of new homes available online. The search engine was designed by builders specifically to address the way that consumers search for new homes, the company said.

RealEstateJournal.com is an online guide to buying, selling and maintaining a home. Content comes from The Wall Street Journal, WSJ.com, both published by Dow Jones & Co., and alliances with real-estate information providers.

“We’re excited to work with The Wall Street Journal’s RealEstateJournal.com to deliver our powerful search engine to their site and provide added value for our builders,” said Tim Costello, president and CEO of Builder Homesite, in a statement.

“New Home Source recently celebrated five years of helping consumers find the perfect new home online and we’re proud to bring this expertise to RealEstateJournal.com,” Costello said.

“The addition of Builder Homesite’s new-home listings gives RealEstateJournal.com visitors the ability to search new-home listings from the nation’s largest home builders,” said Tony Lee, publisher of RealEstateJournal.com.

“We are pleased to incorporate an online marketplace focused specifically on the new-home market into our residential offerings,” Lee said.

Builder Homesite Inc. and its subsidiary, New Home Technologies, were founded with the mission to bring home-building industry leaders together to develop world-class technology solutions. Builder Homesite is a consortium of 36 of the nation’s largest home builders, and its flagship product is NewHomeSource.com, a consumer Web site offering information and selection of new homes.
