The new review site on the block
HoodPoints is a review and rating site for neighborhoods, streets, and avenues. It’s designed for those searching for the right neighborhood before buying or renting a home. It’s so people can find the neighborhoods with the least reported crimes, best schools, and the most inside information from those who already live there. While the consumer-based benefits are obvious, there are a few professional applications to this service that can give your business what it needs to reach that next level.
Realtors, for starters, can use this free service to ultimately help their clients. If there are areas that your clients prefer to shop for homes, you can refer them to the site for questions that you otherwise could not answer, lest you violate Fair Housing Laws. HoodPoints takes the guesswork out of finding the perfect neighborhood to search for purchasable homes, and pointing clients to the service along with your other reference points, you show your preparedness and depth of knowledge.
The next use for HoodPoints is for your own business. If you’re looking for a new and upgraded location for your office, HoodPoints can help you find the best location for your needs. Do you want something closer to residential areas? Are you looking for a location near a certain part of town, but you want to be sure that there is a limited amount of crime? You can find all that out on HoodPoints.
No matter if your client is looking for the perfect home or you’re looking for the best spot for your next office location, HoodPoints provides you with the information you need to make an informed decision. Your employees will thank you for it and so will your real estate clients. HoodPoints provides you with stats and relevant facts to make your decision easy.
The site is young, based in the UK with international expansion plans, and is still relatively unpopulated, so it will appear at first that it is not very useful, but just as Yelp grew to a large presence after a small number of reviews, HoodPoints has the potential to be a driving force in consumer generated reviews as well, but with a twist.
