Sawbuck also partnered with a local brokerage in its last expansion to Phoenix, Ariz., in July. As with that partnership, Houston area buyers will be able to search for-sale homes and recent sales by property type, neighborhood, or address on Sawbuck’s website (in standard or mobile format) and then a Sawbuck adviser will connect the buyers with agents at the local brokerage to handle their transactions.
Sawbuck’s website also offers prospective buyers local market data, new-home listings, bank-owned and short-sale property listings, and information about contracts, price changes, and open houses. The Houston expansion adds more than 305,000 homes, including 42,000 active listings, to Sawbuck’s database.
Houston is the company’s 12th metropolitan coverage area. Sawbuck also operates in Baltimore, Md.; Boston; Chicago; Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas; the San Francisco Bay Area, Inland Empire, Los Angeles and San Diego markets in California; Providence, R.I.; and the Washington, D.C., metro area.
