10 Facebook Dos and Don’ts
Search for a neighborhood, and you’ll see tabs with data covering such topics as the number of households with children, presidential voting patterns, and even the weather. It’s free, and only for REALTORS®.
Here’s an overview of the tabs and the information you can pull into neighborhood reports.
- “Summary” shows you average home values over time and local populations broken down by age group.
- “Housing” provides in-depth information on changing home prices, the sizes of homes sold, and prices per square foot for the neighborhood.
- “People” shows demographics including median ages, male-to-female ratios, and the percentages of college graduates.
- “Economy” includes median income and the unemployment rate.
- “Quality of Life” notes factors affecting day-to-day life (and the decision to move) such as average commuting times, annual snowfall, and water-quality violations.
