Only real estate related
sites, primarily those directed toward consumers, though we do make
exceptions. There must be an "about" or "contact" page that gives
the name, email address, postal address, and phone numbers of the
principals behind the site.
What we are looking for...
We favor sites with on-site
informative content and a willingness to link to outside
sources of information. Although we value
newsletters, we want your site to have some additional
content besides the newsletter.
Our negative biases...
Sites with music, required
log-in for information, pop-under windows, lack of
original content, sites that are more interested in
'selling' than informing, sites that 'disguise' their
purpose, anonymous sites...
We either provide no award,
the "Award Winner" or the "Gold Award" -- they are not automatically
Shows an interest in informing
real estate consumers, but most of the information comes
from links to external sources of information that may or
may not appear in a "viewing" frame -- but are not
actually part of the site.
A step above "Award Winner"
and includes some original "on-site" content in addition
to the criteria required for Award Winner.
Gold Award Winning
We've identified four web
designers whose sites always seem to win the Gold Award --
Advanced Access, Number 1 Experts, Homes.com, and
iHouse2000 (if the music is turned off).
