Potential homebuyers who are searching for a new home are also looking for the right neighborhood that fits their needs. The neighborhood that the home is in can be just as important as the actual property. Because each town has several hundred if not thousands of neighborhoods, it can be a very time consuming process to research which particular neighborhood offers what homebuyers ae looking for. NeighborhoodScout®is a web based neighborhood search engine that can assist you in your search. It is a useful tool that uses neighborhood statistics to build neighborhood profiles to help them to instantly find the best neighborhoods that fit their criteria in any part of the United States.

NeighborhoodScout uses the largest database of neighborhood statistics and characteristics so that the user can choose exactly what they want in a neighborhood by selecting lifestyle searches and key words. Potential homebuyers can search for neighborhood profiles that are linked to the local information such as school information and crime statistics for each neighborhood.

NeighborhoodScout uses nearly 200 characteristics to build a neighborhood profile for each and every neighborhood (census tract) in America. These include: school quality, housing costs, crime rates, income levels, the age, size and style of homes, the density of buildings, rental areas versus owner occupied, the proportion of families with children, ethnic and racial makeup, and many other demographics.

NeighborhoodScout reduces the amount of time spent searching  by pinpointing the locations that best meet your specific criteria. This unique search engine also assists by eliminating misguided location searches and reducing financial risks and uncertainties associated with buying real estate.
