A reader kindly forwarded us to a “new” website called, Neighborcity and we gotta say, aren’t Trulia, and Zillow enough?
We didn’t see anything on this site worth discussing that isn’t already found elsewhere. To us, this site is a complete waste of time. Focus your time on Trulia, Zillow (if you must to get a very, very, very rough estimate of your home’s value), and your local MLS. If you want community, go to Trulia, but beware the Realtor answers are usually loaded to bait you in.
Thanks for the tip to the site, best of luck to them. We are fans of technology in real estate and applaud all efforts, but we weren’t impressed. We look forward to be proven wrong.
[Editor's Note: Okay, we took another look at the site from the perspective of someone shopping for a home somewhere in the country. We're used to dealing with internet savvy buyers and sellers, so we're a bit jaded. We can see value in the site for those that are just beginning their home search and land on this site a la Google.]
