Lake and City Homes adds area demographicsPosted by Jolenta Averill, Broker on Wednesday, October 14th, 2009 at 8:20am.
Lake and City Homes Realty is proud to announce the addition of demographics to its flagship Madison WI real estate website! Three new batches of neighborhood-specific information now appears under a new tab, "Get Local", conveniently located on all our Property Details pages. As a result, we think our Madison real estate site truely qualifies as a one-stop shopping destination for those interested in buying Madison area real estate!
As you can see in the screenshot to the right, our new Get Local tab has three distinct information groupings:
- Nearby Amenities
- Nearby Schools
- Neighborhood Information
Under the Nearby Amenities tab, the names of businesses are shown along with the relevant business category and approximate distances from the subject property. In addition, the businesses are conveniently mapped above. And if you click on a business name it appears labelled on the map. You can also see the company's street address and phone number.
Under the Nearby Schools tab the names of all nearby schools, colleges, and universities are listed, along with their street addresses and phone numbers. In the screenshot here I show how easily you can find a school on the map (in this example, Edgewood College) just by clicking on its name. For instance, here I clicked on "Edgewood Campus School" to allow the corresponding label to be displayed on the map (you can subsequently make that label box disappear by closing it). You can also access any school's website (most schools do have a web presence) by clicking on the link labelled School Website.
Finally, click on the Neighborhood Information tab to get information in the following categories:
- community characteristics for that property's zip code
- population statistics
- financial statistics
- crime rate information
- weather & climate
- nearby locations
So please, click on the View button for any of the featured properties on our home page (or feel free to run your own search) and then click our new Get Local tab to give it a whirl! We'd love to hear how you like our new demographics module. And please, don't be shy. Log your comments and share your thoughts! We're always keen to hear your feedback.
