Its Real Estate Jim, but not as we know it

August 17th, 2011

In the old days, 90% of buyers would come into a real estate office and ask, or in more recent times search, for a desired property starting with / based on the number of bedrooms they wanted.

Times, they are, a changin’……

Get ready for the age of the retiring baby boomer. Get ready for the professional couple without children for who, the number of bedrooms isn’t quite as relevant as it was 15 – 20 years ago.

What they are looking for is a lifestyle location, within a lifestyle destination, and then comes the number of bedrooms and those other things……..

Today’s standard real estate search doesn’t appear to cater directly to that.

Enter the “lifestyle search”, in the instantly very easy to read “heatmap” format.

After over 2 years in development, their USA site has gone live in a Beta way.

But trying to explain it rather than just using it….its a bit like trying to tell you about a picture in 1,000 words. So no, in this case, its definitely best to testdrive the real McCoy for yourself.

Head on over to Spatialmatch’s (beta) website here….and see exactly what I mean. You’ll spot a bit of Walkscore in there too, but there is so much more. The future looks bright.
