Commuting time is a huge factor for many homebuyers, and mass transit is making strides for people who commute without cars. If you’ve had a hard time deciding on a home due to limited information about trains and buses, your home search just got easier.

The timing is perfect, too, as DART rail reaches from the suburbs to downtown and now to D/FW International Airport so now does Ebby.com deliver a new search feature that can show you great homes for sale that are close to light rail. It’s a popular feature in cities such as Washington, D.C., and Chicago.

“Whether it’s frequent trips to the airport, commuting to your job at the Medical Center, shopping at Mockingbird Station, or enjoying the occasional concert at the American Airlines Center in Victory Park, with ebby.com’s new Rail Station Proximity Home Search you’ll be the first to know about homes for sale – and for lease – near the rail station of your choice,” says Randall Graham, vice president and director of marketing for Ebby Halliday Realtors.

The new “Rail Station Proximity Home Search” helps you find homes by whittling down the listings not only by price and features, but by how close they are to your favorite DART rail station. Matching properties are displayed with full details, up to 25 photos, community information, a map, a mortgage calculator and nearby properties.

“At Ebby Halliday Realtors, we’re happy to witness the growth of mass-transit in North Texas and are equally happy to offer home buyers and sellers the benefits of Rail Station Proximity Home Search on ebby.com,” Graham says. “For many years Ebby Halliday has been at the forefront of the smart use of technology in residential real estate, and we’re proud to be the first in Dallas-Fort Worth to offer this forward-thinking home-search capability on our website.”
