Fizber.com has just released a new feature that allows real estate agents rate properties for sale based on the driving distance of businesses and civic destinations from a given address using Google Maps data.
Julia Foster comments on the new widget, "In addition to Drive Score, we provide the Drive Score Real Estate Widget, which is simple to integrate into online real estate listings or a website. If you're a real estate agent interested in showing off your properties' Drive Score, you can add the Drive Score widget to your site or blog."
With Drive Score, buyers can see how close establishments are by car. Drive Score shows a map of what establishments are in a property's neighborhood and calculates a Drive Score based on the number of places within a convenient driving distance. Drive Score Widget allows real estate professionals to embed elements of Drive Score functionality directly on their websites, social networking sites, or blogs by simply copying and pasting HTML code.
"I work in real estate and I know that buyers want it all within a convenient driving distance", says Kelly M., Agent. "It's simple to add the Drive Score widget to your real estate website, and home buyers can easily see a map of what's nearby."
Americans don't want to walk regardless of what public health experts urge. Three-quarters of short trips, a mile or less, are made by car, federal studies show. For decades, cities, towns and suburbs have been developed on the assumption that every trip will be made by car. That has all but eliminated walking from daily life for people in most parts of the country. Americans make fewer than 6% of their daily trips on foot, according to studies by the Federal Highway Administration.
The addition of a Drive Score Widget to real estate home listings will make it even easier for buyers to find the home they want in an area they like.
Fizber.com is a for-sale-by-owner website listing about 2 million homes for sale. Listings are available for homes all over the United States. Fizber.com puts the power of buying and selling at your fingertips.
