ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, FLORIDA (PRWEB) AUGUST 09, 2022 - Stellar MLS is proud to collaborate with Lundy, Inc. to bring search by voice and enhanced data accessibility to our customers, their prospects, homebuyers, and sellers who are searching for homes in the Stellar MLS coverage area! Now, with Lundy's comprehensive voice-activated property search engine via Amazon's Alexa app, blind and visually impaired individuals will be immersed in the home buying experience.
"This partnership with Stellar MLS signals a remarkable shift in the responsibility MLSs are taking to solve these complex, fair housing and accessibility issues. Stellar is facing these issues head-on without fear, and it is an honor to be a part of the team. With the help of our MLS partners, our technology will revolutionize the ADA accessibility of data while addressing consumer search trends, like accessing information by voice while multi-tasking or driving. As a result, this tool has a much larger application to the general public than our core mission. It is exciting to be a part of such important work," said Justin Lundy, Co-Founder and CEO of Lundy, Inc.
Lundy takes key data on residential listings and delivers listing information in small but informative sentences. On top of that, users can search by property address or set a search by asking Alexa about property characteristics like price range or number of bedrooms.
"Stellar MLS is committed to accessibility, inclusivity, and equal access to data in the Real Estate arena. We will continue to seek out and provide access to products such as voice-activated search to align with our philosophy of inclusivity,” commented Merri Jo Cowen, CEO of Stellar MLS.
The partnership between Stellar MLS and Lundy follows Stellar’s recent efforts to enhance accessibility for their subscribers by updating their various web properties to an AA rating per the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG).
Lundy, Inc. is also partnered with MetroList® MLS, Park City MLS, and West Arizona Data Exchange (WARDEX) to provide Finding Homes search by voice to those markets.
