Yahoo! Real Estate, one of the Web’s leading online real estate resources, has collaborated with NewHomeSource.com, the most complete new home marketplace, to provide consumers the ability to search new construction homes listings from across the country. NewHomeSource.com is the flagship product of Builder Homesite (BHI), the leading homebuilding organization with over 9,700 communities listed throughout the United States. By joining forces with BHI, Yahoo! Real Estate provides users access to one of the most accurate, up-to-date, and comprehensive new homes data available online.

Real Estate’s user interface and reach, we are providing consumers with an easy and effective method to find the new home of their dreams,” said Tim Costello, CEO of Builder Homesite.
