One of the most popular new features is the Saved List, which allows account holders to save their favorite communities and even individual home listings. By favoriting communities and homes, users can see all of their most desired neighborhoods in one place.
The Saved List feature also sends users notifications of any changes and new listings in their favorite communities. Users can even share communities on social media or contact a 55places.com Partner Agent to take a closer look.
