ATTOM’s Neighborhood and Residential Subdivisions for Hyperlocal Search
ATTOM’s Neighborhood and Residential Subdivisions Boundaries data provides a nationwide, hierarchical set of boundaries and names that best reflect the consensus opinion of local residents.
Neighborhood and Residential Subdivisions are small geographic areas comprised of social communities with their own identities, while also having names and boundaries that are familiar to local residents. This makes them the pinnacle of hyperlocal search and superior to zip codes or cities for most use cases. Research has shown that consumers strongly prefer hyperlocal search capabilities. Savvy search portal operators incorporate these boundaries datasets into their platforms.
Meticulously Researched and Digitized
Created specifically for real estate search, our research includes official city and county maps, local tourism and media websites, community master plans, MLS & Realtor websites, HOA websites, developer site plans, assessor legal subdivision data, and satellite imagery. Our GIS Analysts also virtually drive through entire cities in Google Street View to review subdivision and condo signage. Feedback is also provided by local experts from our nationwide network of real estate professionals.
Our GIS Analysts hand-digitize these neighborhood and residential subdivision boundaries, tracing reference layers such as streets, parcel boundaries, and hydrography.
Nationwide coverage is available in the U.S. and Canada and includes hundreds of thousands of boundaries in over 600 metro areas and 10,000 cities and towns.
Neighborhood Hierarchy Supports Many Use Cases
Together, the Neighborhood (levels 1-3) and Residential Subdivision (level 4) datasets provide a hierarchy of unambiguous, non-overlapping boundaries.
- Level 1: Macro-neighborhoods
- Level 2: Neighborhoods
- Level 3: Sub-Neighborhoods
- Level 4: Residential Subdivisions
Level 1: Macro-neighborhoods
Macro-Neighborhoods are the largest neighborhood type by size and depict regions, major sections of a city, or large master-planned communities.
Level 2: Neighborhoods
This level represents the common definition of a city-level neighborhood, typically comprised of a colloquial grouping of streets and commonly referenced by local residents. Level 2 Neighborhoods usually form a complete fabric covering the entire area of an incorporated city.
Level 3: Sub-Neighborhoods
Sub-Neighborhoods are smaller, named areas usually found in the core of a city within a larger Level 2 Neighborhood. They are often business, entertainment, arts, or historic districts.
Level 4: Residential Subdivisions
The Residential Subdivisions Product is comprised of boundaries for subdivisions, condominiums, townhome communities, apartment complexes, retirement communities, and other residential housing tracts.
