Frequently Asked Questions
At neighborhoods.com, we put the neighborhood at the center of your home search, making it easy for you to compare dozens of neighborhoods from across the country, all in one place. You can explore detailed neighborhood profiles, view property listings and photo galleries, read resident reviews, and evaluate school information. We’re also a licensed brokerage, which means you have a team of neighborhood real estate experts in your corner. We’ll be your best advocate until you find the neighborhood and home that’s right for you.
We've worked hard to find the best real estate agents who know the neighborhoods they serve. Unlike other real estate websites, neighborhoods.com real estate experts are hand selected based on their knowledge of the neighborhoods they represent, so you can feel confident moving forward with the home buying or home selling process. Contact us to get started.
Since we’re a licensed real estate brokerage, we get up-to-date listing information from local multiple listing services (MLSs)—so when you see a home listing, you can ensure that it’s accurate. For information on neighborhoods, we pull data from public records, information from Yelp, scores from services like WalkScore and GreatSchools, insight from our local neighborhood real estate experts, and reviews from real residents.
You can find your perfect neighborhood by using our advanced search tool. Answer a few questions and we’ll provide you with neighborhood recommendations based on your personal preferences.
