Outside.in has you covered.
They have just launched a new product called Outside.in for Publishers – what they’re calling “an out-of-the-box hyperlocal news section for your website”.
- Customized Neighborhood News Pages for every neighborhood in your market.
- Rich, interactive maps, headlines, and excerpts.
- Access to aggregated stories from all local blogs, news sites, and other sources—including Twitter!
- Tools to curate the stories, sources, and tags that will appear on your site.
The product is free but does come embedded ads from Outside.in. There is an ad-free version that can be licensed however.
I think this would be a great product to integrate with any online real estate research tool. A way to quickly mashup listings, neighborhoods with a real-time view of the events happening around you.
Combine this with the ratings from Walkscore, a proximity search filter like Estately’s, market data widgets from Altos Research and, of course, listings drawn hopefully from the MLS and you start to have a very compelling tool for consumers to dive in to.
