Patent a Process

Wanted to Patent a process of finding homes for sale through the use of a single word or term to search. 

The word we are wanting to use is "Paruse", Paruse by Istockhomes Marketing Ltd.  

In the process of using the word Paruse we are wanting to set up a process where persons looking for homes for sale in a specific geographic location can just Google the word "Paruse+ their desired location" 

The result is that someone can go to google search "Paruse + their location and then click on the images button of google and come up with  all images of homes for sale in the desired area that are tagged with the trademarked word "Paruse" 

The process that we are wanting to protect is the use of a single word or term to search for homes for sale, houses for sale, property for sale, for sale by owner, house hunt, house hunting, sale house, real estate, properties, land, land for sale, etc. 

I'm wanting a price to set forth patent pending on this process if possible. Please do not go ahead with the process prior to Paul and I giving a go ahead. For now, we are just wanting a price to proceed. 

Pursue Commercial

The scene comfortable living room evening scene, fire burning. One fairly attractive mid 40ish  female lounging on a couch with feet up on the couch, she is comfortable and relaxed not showing much if any cleavage. Feet are covered with a throw or blanket. The room is dimly lit. Has a glass of wine and is obviously drinking it while relaxing while surfing on an iPad. 

In a separate room is a male, mid 40ish fully dressed with messy hair from having his head resting on his hands obviously stressed. He is sitting at what appears to be a kitchen or dining room table the lighting is bright fluorescent. In front of him is a laptop computer and as the camera pans into the monitor the screen shows nothing but a list of listings there are no images showing on his monitor. 

While the camera is focussed on the screen all of a sudden one hears the sound on the chair being forced out from under the table as the male quickly rises to his feet. The camera then follows the male out of his brightly lit room through second darkened room or hallway the camera can then see in the distance the fire burning as the male enters the room where the female is. As he enters he turns on the main lights of the room and totally destroys the ambience of the room. 

He then looks at the female as the camera focuses on him. He says.

I thought we were supposed to be house hunting and looking for a place to move into as we very little time to find a place. 

What are you doing? 

Female: Parusing. 

Male: What is Parusing? 

Female: Parusing is a new way of looking for homes online. All you do is look through images only after entering your detailed search terms including the word "paruse" the even in a google search just click on images.

What happens is google pulls up all images that have been tagged with the word "Paruse" it could be a house, home, property, a listing, a condo. 

To Paruse takes all of the hunt and stress out of looking for a house online. Here I'll show you.

The female then gets up from the couch leaving the wine and blanket behind and signals the male to join her on the floor in front of the fire. The two of them then start casually perusing through images and listings on the floor as the light somehow gets dimmed as the camera goes from a full shot of the two laying full body's on the floor side by side and the camera moves into just finally a close up of her hand scrolling up on the images and the two of them pointing out images that they like. come check it out and forget the stress of hunting.
