Emeryville, CA - APRIL 30, 2008 - HomeGain, a leading provider of online marketing solutions that connect real estate agents and brokers with home buyers and sellers, today announced that it is offering Agent Blogs to its Source4Sellers™ agents.

"By linking hundreds of individual agent blogs from all over the country with the HomeGain Blog (Google page rank 7), HomeGain establishes an Agent Blogging Network," said Louis Cammarosano, General Manager of HomeGain. "The new Agent Blog feature signals a further move away from an emphasis on form leads and another step towards providing HomeGain's Source4Sellers agents with a total HomeGain Marketing System."

Potential homebuyers and sellers can access the HomeGain Agent Blogging Network directly from the HomeGain Blog, HomeGain.com or by requesting a free home valuation from HomeGain's instant home valuation tool.

Source4Sellers agents' profiles and blogs are featured on the instant home valuation results page prominently and exclusively in an advertising-free environment.

"The free consumer-facing blog feature is designed to provide yet another connectivity point between HomeGain.com visitors and Source4Sellers agents," said Shawn Cannon, Product Manager at HomeGain.

HomeGain intends to provide syndicated content and other blog features in the coming months as they build out the HomeGain Agent Blog Network.
