Neighborhoods & Schools

Knowing the details and selling points of a given neighborhood are key to being a well-informed agent. The Neighborhood section of RPR lets you drill down to stats and characteristics about the properties themselves, owner demographics, owner economic indicators, plus quality of life factors such as commute times, water quality, walkability and more. One of the top priorities for parents searching for a new home is “quality of schools.” RPR’s focus on schools let’s you conduct up-to-date research on school ratings and test scores, locate up to 20 nearby home listings to a particular school, and almost instantly create high quality property reports for your clients. RPR enables you to search for schools within 5 miles of a location; by city/state, school, or district name; and even by type of school (elementary, middle, high school, and private schools).

You can use aerial, road, and overhead views, to searching by schools, points of interest (POIs) and heat maps.
