Dublin, Ireland (PressExposure) July 08, 2007 -- The common desire of owning a house in the South of France or some other part of mainland Europe often fails to be realized, as language barriers make it impossible to gain an overall market overview. The recently inaugurated Internet search portal property-betterdeals.com solves this problem by presenting a range of European properties to its visitors.
Customized search masks help users to specify their needs regarding locations and characteristics of the desired property. The results are listed in tables that allow future property owners to compare the crucial traits as well as the listed properties' prices. And as English is the predetermined language on property-betterdeals.com, there should not be any problem of comprehension.
The initial idea for property-betterdeals.com came from William Meyers who had wanted to get information on the French property market while travelling through Northern France and Paris. Leaving England, he was still convinced that English as a worldwide means of communication would help him to obtain the desired details. Once he was in Paris, he realized that the French would not even be able to explain him the way to the next hotel in English. As a result, Myers had to accept the fact that it would be impossible for him alone to find the overview he had wished for.
Back in England, Myers searched on the Internet but faced the same barriers of understanding. Not even machine translations would be enough for him to understand the different property sites' offers. Frustrated by this experience, he called Michael Peterson, a software developing friend of him. Peterson immediately understood the situation and found that Myers had already discovered a solution, although Myers was not aware of it.
At the next meeting of his company's software developers, Peterson brought in the idea of a property site that helps consumers to overcome the European language chaos. After a following period of six months of planning and development, property-betterdeals.com went online in the beginning of 2007. First user feedbacks have already confirmed the makers' confidence in being able to open the European property market for people from English speaking countries that do not speak the foreign language in question.
