What Happened to COhomefinder?

question

COhomefinder.com, the long-popular real estate site operated by 8z Real Estate, has been shut down in favor of the company’s new search and display real estate site, 8z.com. Similar to COhomefinder.com, 8z.com allows users to search for homes and land in Colorado (and the Bay Area of CA) and have full access to property information that is updated daily, direct from the MLS. 8z.com allows users to save searches, save their favorite properties, and subscribe to email notifications for properties within their search criteria, as they were able to do on COhomefinder.com. In addition, the new website is supported by a full-time client care team 7 days a week.

“While COhomefinder.com has been very popular, it has become a ‘dinosaur’ so to speak, built on dated technology. By redirecting COhomefinder.com to 8z.com our clients can have access to the best real estate search technology, and we can increase our tech team’s bandwidth to provide the greatest technology resources for our clients and Realtors,” explained Jeremy Sullivan, the Technical Operations manager at 8z.

Doug Gieck, the 8z Client Care team managers advises COhomefinder.com users, “If you have any saved searches on COhomefinder.com, these will not transfer over to 8z.com. Go ahead and explore 8z.com and set up new searches to continue receiving those alerts.”

The Client Care team is glad to assist users with their real estate questions, and questions about using 8z.com. They can be reached 7 days a week at 800.231.9153 or clientcare@8z.com.

    I am sorry you now have an agreement policy. I will find other websites to use.

      Hi Alice. We’re sorry to hear that. There are many real estate sites out there, but not all have accurate data, search features, and a customer service team 7 days/week like we do. Best of luck!

    Is there a way to narrow the search on the new site to include only ranch homes? This was a great feature of cohomefinder that I can’t seem to find on the new site.

    Nothing can compare to the old coho. So easy to navigate and bought many homes thanks to the “dinosaur” 8z and other sites are a nightmare

    The old cohomefinder was superior and user friendly for buyers and sellers. This 8z site is designed to maximize the realtors interest in meeting buyers and sellers.
