REALTOR.ca Rolls Out New Neighbourhood Information For Customers

 

 

Everyone has heard the saying “real estate is local” and for buyers looking for their dream property, knowing the details on a neighbourhood is key.

That is why REALTOR.ca has updated the property listing pages to include a more user-friendly experience along with local content REALTORS® can use to identify the features and highlights of potential neighbourhoods.

Adding more local context to REALTOR.ca listings
The updated REALTOR.ca property listing pages now include a “Neighbourhood” tab. This tab is the new home for the popular demographic information, Walk Score® and Transit Score (when available).

This tab also includes a new map which indicates the defined area for that listing’s demographic data.

Lifestyle pilot
Also included in this update is a new pilot project using REALTOR.ca and neighbourhood data mining experts, HoodQ.com. As a trial run, this project has rolled out in Vancouver and Halifax.

The pilot project will include a new “Lifestyle” tab in both cities where REALTORS® and consumers with a REALTOR.ca account can access a detailed report on various features and benefits of that listing’s area. This includes information such as schools, parks, transit, proximity to amenities and more.

If you have any questions regarding this release, please contact boardsupport@crea.ca.
