Toronto, ON, July 12, 2016 – For over 40 years, it’s been Tarion’s job to make sure your new home warranty is here for you. And today, we are introducing a new website to show how we are continuing to support new home buyers and builders every step of the way.
With so many online tools at a new home buyer’s fingertips, one of the most essential resources is information about the new home warranty. According to Howard Bogach, Tarion’s President and CEO, “Tarion has listened to home buyers and builders, and created the tools they asked us for. Our website is now easier to navigate and has more useful resources. Tarion has supported home buyers and builders for the past 40 years, and this is just another way we continue to evolve to ensure that the warranty meets their needs.”
The new Tarion.com provides buyers, builders and other professionals in the real estate industry with fundamental information when constructing, buying and living in a brand new home.
Tarion surveyed website users to find out how we can improve our site to meet their needs. By leveraging expertise from leading advisory firms in the technology, communications and research industries, the website was built to be optimized in design and succinct in information. “Using real user feedback, we re-designed our website to enhance the online experience. Some of the improvements include simpler navigation and better organization so you can find what you are looking for faster,” says Bogach.
Comments about Tarion’s old website were positive towards the quality and volume of information, but users felt it was hard to find the information they were looking for. The new Tarion.com has an improved design and upgraded navigation so the information is easily accessible. Tarion also expanded the resources for homeowners, buyers, builders and real estate agents to help provide support during the home buying process. Check out some of our resources here.
“Tarion is here to make sure the new home buying experience is working. We ensure there are standards in construction and customer service, and support home buyers and owners throughout the entire new home buying experience,” says Bogach. “Since buying a new home is one of the most significant and financially impactful decisions that someone can make in their lifetime, it’s important to have proper support and guidance throughout this process. Tarion.com should be seen as an essential resource for anyone looking to buy, build or sell a new home in Ontario.”
The new Tarion.com is just the beginning of Tarion’s upgraded services. Tarion’s online warranty portal – MyHome – is also in the midst of an update to better serve Ontario’s new home owners. Visit the new Tarion.com to see the changes to the website, and stay tuned for a new MyHome coming soon.
