The People tab gets to the heart of who lives in the neighborhood and whether those demographics are a good fit for your client. Here you will find a side-by-side comparison chart that measures population counts, densities and changes; median age, gender, and education levels.

Quality of Life

This tab is particularly helpful when working with relocations. Looks to Quality of Life for weather, commute times, transportation options, and water quality. It even includes the number of Superfund and Brownfield sites. Again, all in a side-by-side, neighborhood/county/state/country comparison.

What is the RPR Neighborhood Report?

The report also includes median list and sales prices, listing and sales volumes, and per square foot pricing on sold homes.
