SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Trulia®, a leading destination for homebuyers and renters, announced a partnership with celebrity real estate agents James Harris and David Parnes, stars of "Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles." During the month of December (Dec. 1-12), Trulia and the real estate agents will provide helpful advice and content to make the home searching process easy and enjoyable – from tips for searching for a new home to highlights of the must-have home features for holiday entertaining.
During the holiday campaign, James and David will help a very unique friend and client find a home – a gingerbread man who is moving from the city to the suburbs as he and his gingerbread wife are expecting a gingerbread baby. The gingerbread family's journey will be chronicled with realistically humorous photos depicting the various emotions consumers feel when finding their home. Consumers can follow the gingerbread family's journey at www.trulia.com/gingerbread and on Instagram.
"This playful campaign is all about underscoring our promise to make it easy and enjoyable to find a home, even during the bustle of the holiday season," said Micky Onvural, Trulia vice president of consumer marketing. "James and David are the ideal real estate experts to guide any home seeker – like our gingerbread family – with insider knowledge about the holiday real estate landscape."
The Daily Dough - $2K a Day Giveaway!
To help home shoppers sweeten their very own digs – whether they are upgrading their furniture or saving for a down payment – Trulia is giving away $2,000 a day for 12 consecutive days starting on Dec. 1. Consumers can visit the dedicated campaign website for the chance to win by simply entering their email address.
"We are very excited to partner with Trulia to help our friend, the gingerbread man, find a new home for his growing family," said James Harris, real estate agent at The Agency. "As a father of two myself, I know it is an exciting and emotional time when you find out you are expecting a child. Your priorities shift and you may want to move from your city apartment to a home in a safe neighborhood and with great schools. We cannot wait to help this gingerbread family find their new home."
"The holiday season can be a surprisingly good time of year to buy or sell a home," said David Parnes, real estate agent at The Agency. "Both sides face less competition. For sellers, the dip in inventory means fewer homes to compete with for offers, as most sellers wait until after the holidays to list. With fewer buyers out shopping around, serious buyers are more likely to find an unexpected deal during the holiday and winter season."
