Coldwell Banker launches lifestyle search

Company also announces affordability tool

Realogy subsidiary Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC has added new search tools to its website, the company has announced.

A lifestyle search tool allows users to rate elements of a neighborhood that matter (or don’t matter) to them and then finds neighborhoods that match their criteria in a given geographic area.

Criteria can include whether the neighborhood is rich in shops and services, public transit, nightlife, art and music venues, good schools, and/or golf courses; whether it’s in a rural or urban area; and whether it matches their price range.

"We recognize that a home’s value is more than its bedrooms and bathrooms," said Helen Galasso, the company’s vice president of platform development and e-business, in a statement.
