HomeSeekers.com Inc. said it entered into a marketing agreement with Homebuyers Guide, a publisher of new home publications with circulation in California and Nevada.

The joint marketing agreement was formed to establish HomeSeekers.com's newest offering, NewHomeSeekers.com. NewHomeSeekers.com will database New Home projects in various geographic areas. Financial arrangements were not disclosed.

"We are very excited with the prospect of building a feature rich 'New Home' Web site utilizing the talents of HomeSeekers.com," said Walter Crowell, president of Homebuyers Guide.

NewHomeSeekers.com will be made to offer floor plans, still image photography, 360-degree walk-throughs, mapping and a robust search engine, the firms said.
