NeighborhoodScout unveils 'micro-neighborhood' home price forecasts and crime ratings

Bolstered neighborhood discovery platform also includes hyperlocal crime ratings
  • Real estate agents can use NeighborhoodScout's new subscription product to view three-year price forecasts (plus much more information) down to geographic areas covering 600 to 3,000 people.
  • The neighborhood information site has also unveiled a range of laser-sharp crime ratings as part of the offering.
  • NeighborhoodScout appears to have stopped feeding referrals to brokers in exchange for fees.

Due to fair housing laws, real estate agents can skate on thin ice if they discuss sensitive neighborhood information with homebuyers, such as demographic makeup, school quality and crime levels.
