More (better) neighborhood and city information
Isn’t there a word for something that’s both more and better? Mobetta? If so, we are today launching mobetta neighborhood and city information pages to give potential home buyers a real feel for the neighborhood and to give sellers marketing points they didn’t know existed. I’ll just jump to what’s both more and better:
Best and worst schools for every neighborhood and city in Washington. Check out the schools in West Seattle for instance. Also included in this release are detail pages for every school in Washington.
Once you find the school you absolutely must live near (lets say Ballard High School) you’re only one click away from seeing the properties for sale within walking distance.
We’ve boiled schools down to three simple things: where they are, what school district they are in, and the math and school scores for the student body. We hope to encourage conversation about the specifics of each school and district (like posts about which loony toons were elected to the board) sometime soon.
Just remember, school scores aren’t everything – they should be used as a starting point (Bellevue students are better at reading and they have the International Baccalaureate, for the record). We can recommend local Realtors who really know the local schools if you want to know more about your local schools.
We also added information about parks and places (restaurants, statues, anything of interest) for every neighborhood and city. Thanks to the Robots at Forty Three Places, you can see that Paseo is the best reason to live in Fremont. My recommendation: live two miles away so you can walk through Ross Playground and work off half of the meal.
We’re ironing out a couple of bugs as I type. Let us know if you have any questions or suggestions in the comments.
