As prices at the fuel pump remain high and people’s concerns about their impact on the environment rise, where we live in relation to what we do takes on greater significance.  Enter Optimal Home Location, a real estate tool that lets users input the addresses of the most frequently visited places in their daily lives, such as schools and workplaces, into a database that aggregates the information and determines a central area to begin their housing hunt from.  The service also allows you to compare your commute from various locations as well as take into account community demographics like property taxes and local attractions. Although not a perfect application – the website includes a disclaimer stating that the searches do not take into account the feasibility of the area for living – it does provide an excellent jumping off point for eco-friendly and convenience conscious potential home buyers alike.
