Posted by: RET Staff
In evaluating the real estate industry and the Lifestyle Search solutions available, there are four notable companies to consider.
Onboard Informatics – Lifestyle Search Engine
Onboard Informatics, is offering the first true lifestyle search that allows a consumer to find neighborhoods and properties using lifestyle criteria instead of simply the usual search based on bedrooms, baths and price.
In order for lifestyle search to work effectively the underpinnings of the data need to be comprehensive, relevant and recent. The data from Onboard Informatics, for example, includes data from the 50 states plus Puerto Rico. It includes 940 metro areas, over 3,000 counties, more than 25,000 cities and more than 75,000 neighborhoods.
Their system provides 1.6 million points of interest, including over 100,000 schools with test scores, ratings and reviews as well as population demographics, housing trends, local points of interest, school ratings and many more. The system uses this data to identify places based on subjective score, objective values, projections, estimates and even hyper local ratings and reviews.
