Transaction histories now visible by neighborhood on HomeLight
Google Ventures-backed agent matching site HomeLight now allows users to search for real estate agents by neighborhood through a partnership with data firm Maponics Inc., the site announced today.
With a new mapping feature powered by Maponics neighborhood data, HomeLight users can select a neighborhood from a map view on the site and see a list of agents with HomeLight profiles who have done deals in the area.
The new feature “makes it even easier for homebuyers and sellers to find real estate experts by specific neighborhood in over 1,500 U.S. cities,” the company said in a statement.
The new search functionality also allows consumers to explore agents’ profiles on the site to see details about the homes for which they’ve represented buyers and sellers by neighborhood, said HomeLight CEO and founder Drew Uher.
Once the site has served up a list of agents, users can click on an agent profile and filter the transactions seen on the profile map by neighborhood, area served, transaction type, property type, and year.
