The Ellis Team is introducing nationwide local neighborhood updates. It is free and it offers some features you will not find anywhere else. We will talk about some of the features and how it works here.
One of the features is a neighborhood trends report. People like to see what is going on in their neighborhood. We have included a snapshot of basic summary statistics for Reflection Lakes in Fort Myers. Users can click to explore the neighborhood and more features open.
Some of the added features include local transit times to places of interest the user chooses. Let’s say a couple is searching for a home. The husband works one place, and the wife works in another. They can add both locations so they can see how far each commute is from that neighborhood.
Other features included a list of nearby schools as well as an interactive map that shows places of interest. Users could select highlights, nightlife, shopping, fitness, arts and entertainment, groceries, etc. When you select your interests, the interactive map displays those things you have selected and placed them on the map.
Let’s say you selected groceries. The map will show all the grocery stores relative to the neighborhood you have selected. The same is true with any category.
I particularly like the nearby neighborhoods information and the available homes for sale. Others will like the local reviews of each place. The neighborhood report does an excellent job of compiling compelling data and displaying it in a useful way for consumers.
The best part is this website http://ellisteam.kw.com works anywhere in the country. Users can select multiple neighborhoods. For instance, a user may own a home in SW Florida and one up North. It is easy to add both neighborhoods, and once selected each neighborhood has their own tab and data, all in one place.
We can email this information out every two weeks, or monthly. This is particularly helpful, so you do not have to remember the website. Just click on the link and it will take you to the report when it is updated.
The Ellis Team is working extremely hard to bring consumers tools that are useful, and work anywhere. We have strong partners in other states that can assist with your real estate needs wherever they are. Providing useful information that works anywhere benefits customers from out of our area. This benefits local sellers because we can now provide nationwide local neighborhood updates. Out of state buyers are more likely to use us, and when they do their interest in SW Florida rises.
We have some customers that are selling here in SW Florida and moving back to family or a job relocation. These tools provide tremendous data in separate locations. Providing this data makes the Ellis Team a one-stop shop no matter where a buyer is buying or selling. We will not be their agents out of state. That takes a separate license. What we can be is their guide to selecting the best agent no matter where their interest is, as well as great neighborhood data.
The Ellis Team still has our local websites, like our home valuation tool www.SWFLhomevalues.com and our local property search www.LeeCountyOnline.com Nothing is going away. We are bringing more tools and more value to consumers. When we meet in person or via Zoom we can show you powerful data. This data will help you make better decisions, and it’s fun too!
We look forward to helping you with your real estate needs. If you have a home to sell, please call Brett or Sande Ellis 239-489-4042 Ext 4. We are easy to talk to and we can help you with your needs, both in SW Florida and anywhere in the country.
