Many times when a buyer moves to a new town, they are challenged with picking the best location.
That experience is doubly difficult if youngsters are involved, then it needs to take into account bus routes, distance to schools, distance to after school sports and activities, etc, etc.
I’ve talked before about Walkscore and how relevant their info is.
In fact I see NZ real estate companies are now incorporating this info in their data set, and publishing it along with other details of a property.
And although they do a good job, from the the “if its not broke, don’t fix it” stage left pops up a new comer … Isoscope.
And their view takes a slightly more visual approach all around. You’ll note there is also a time line there to tell the program what time you would like to set off on a journey of discovery, and presumably….background data will depict traffic situations around that time and offer up yet another way to view data.
Both are worth a look if you are looking to visit a new place, or even look to buy a property there.
