How Community and Demographic Data Can Make Your Real Estate Listing Platform a Go-To Resource for House Hunters

In a sea of glossy graphics, triple-digit property listings, and intuitive interfaces, it can be difficult to make your real estate listing platform stand out to prospective buyers.

From aerial maps, to a host of search filters.

It seems that any tactic you dream up to generate a steady influx of new leads and conversions has already been done by your competitors a hundred times over.

While most platforms look to hit the high-points of Google with aesthetics and functionality alone, some up-and-coming industry leaders are now turning to data to differentiate them from the scores of other real estate listing platforms on the market.

From to Zillow to Realtor, the leading real estate property listing platforms provide home buyers with basic property data. Typically covering: property size, square feet, home type, and year built.

While the majority of real estate portals provide basic neighborhood level data, such as population statistics and data on the local schools – few include expansive information on the demographic features and neighborhood characteristics that give local communities their character.

While data on the local population size and schools may help buyers gain a sense of a neighborhoods value, nuanced characteristics – encompassing elements such as the weather, employment, education levels, and the local languages spoken bring color to buyer’s perceptions of a community. 

Real Estate Portals

Real estate portals that offer information on a variety of demographic features help home buyers develop an experiential snapshot of what living in a certain property may be like.

Demographic data can also help users to personalize their home search and choose properties based on granular features that appeal to their values and interests. Some property portals can also allow users to filter properties in neighborhoods on the basis of ‘personality’ attributes – such as “safe and sound”.

As such, including detailed data on local neighborhoods enables your property portal to stand-out in a sea of substandard choices. Your portal becomes a go-to resource for buyers looking to gain a deeper insight into the communities that they may one day make their home.
