Finally… an innovative Lifestyle Search system where you can visually see the relationships between things important to you in deciding where to live! Looking to live within a 1/2 mile of a coffee shop, 2 miles from a grocery store, 1/4 from a high school and within 5 miles of work? This interactive map tool can help you find your 'sweet spot'! 

Where to live

Now that we can search the MLS for homes by neighborhood, it can be hard to figure out just which neighborhoods are right for you. With over 100 layers of information, you can not only visually see where the neighborhoods are located and what is in each neighborhood, you can also get demographic and statistical data on the neighborhood.

Spatial match-neighborhood

This Lifestyle Search is in continuing development, with layers still to be added including current and historic home values, parks, trails (!!), and homes for sale… to be available within the next few months.

In the meantime, there is already a wealth of information delivered in a format that helps you visually define where to search for your home… not just find out what is around a specific property.

Check out this awesome Lifestyle Search!! Click on Lifestyle for things like schools, dining, shopping, entertainment, etc… click on Areas for neighborhoods and school districts, etc… and don't miss the great video tutorials by clicking on the HELP button!
