Walkability? Where are you walking to?

dining 300x162 Hyperlocal lifestyle real estate search is finally here  SpatialMatchLiving in a city like Austin, for example, you know something like this has to be coming because the demand for lifestyles is ultra high. Since the erection of the first high rise condo development in downtown Austin, walkability has become a really big deal- most areas in and around Austin rank highly in this factor, but what are people walking to?

Showing you all of the “home sweet home spots”

SpatialMatch answers that question before you buy or lease by allowing you to see everything of personal interest within close proximity so that you can target exactly what makes you feel at home, and you are shown the available homes within your designated areas.

Amazing UI plus data equals SpatialMatch

SpatialMatch is truly a beautiful interface (see video), well laid out (customizable), stimulating, and jam packed with information like home values, all of which are whitelabled for MLSs, Brokers, and even Agent IDX. We expect to see it becoming very common place in tandem with traditional search, as demand in modern urban areas is high for this type of product. Suburban areas will also benefit as schools, stores and even parks are searchable. SpatialMatch features 60 million properties, 12.5 million businesses, 134k schools and universities, local information and amenities, and even weather.

Summary?

I can see this type of search being blended with ratings from sites like Yelp, or geo location utilities to learn “who’s around” details like Gowalla, being used to gain your social user names to check where your friends are and learning what your friends think of these same locations and seeing if any of your friends have checked in at the same homes or businesses you’re looking at- the verticals are limitless utilizing geo and social tech to expand this into the super-personal realm also giving agents a contact point who they friend in social spaces- “friend”- a new word and spaces for contact forms within search that has hardly been explored or utilized.

The thing I like about SpatialMatch is that it’s not designed nor will it compete with Agents or Brokers, in fact, it’s an enhancement designed for Agents and Brokers to fully display area knowledge and resources that move the buyer forward while providing listing agents another layer of value to listing consumers looking for new and exciting ways to bring home buyers to the table.

Making real estate search more personal is the next logical step in search evolution, and connecting personally via tools like SpatialMatch will fuel the demand for more development in how we display and visualize data. I cannot imagine that Zillow or Trulia are far behind in the geo trend but this is the first time in a long time I’ve seen the traditional space actually move in front in the race for eyeballs, I guess the question now is, where is Realtor.com (Move) in the race?

    Do you ever walkscore??? We use walkscore.com in all of our listings as well as a tool on our website to let our client base know what they can hop, skip and jump to. Sounds like SpatialMatch is very similar. We’ll have to check it out!
