When you and your clients are looking to purchase a home or move to a new area one of the most important things that can’t be found anywhere officially is the personality of the community. Every place is different, and for most people– especially first time home buyers and those new to an area, finding a community with the right personality is invaluable.
Luckily there is one new website/app that is now attempting to help people get a real window into the personality of a city, neighborhood, or even street! CoEverywhere a Boston based web company lets users draw maps around areas they hang out or want to visit and pull data such as live tweets, deals, media (photos and videos pulled from users in that area), business updates, events and more. What better way to figure out if an area is right for you then by seeing what people are saying, showing and doing in that area?
If anything this is just one more tool that Realtors can use to help clients in their home buying search. CoEverywhere is especially great for agents who work with a lot of clients who are much younger. You telling a client that an area is hip and awesome is one thing but if you show them the tool to let them discover that on their own its even stronger. This is also a cool tool if you are an agent who includes city profiles/community pages on your website.
In a real estate landscape where professionals like Realtors are constantly looking for innovative ways to provide their clients with more value, free apps like CoEverywhere are a great resource.
