aboutPLACE Makes it Easy to Evaluate and Compare Cities Before You Move
Choose from 110 lifestyle preferences to narrow down your perfect home
Moving to a new city is a daunting prospect for most, especially when you consider all the variables that can contribute to success and failure. aboutPLACE is a new location-smart solution that lets you discover, evaluate, and compare cities, towns, and neighborhoods before you move. With more than 110 lifestyle preferences to choose from, you’re given an exact snapshot of how well an area suits you.
The beta version of aboutPLACE will launch in three markets: Austin, Boston and Miami – with plans to roll out into future metro areas in the coming months. What makes the service special is that it goes beyond geographic boundaries by introducing a new way to consider location. “PLACES” are created by the existence and abundance of the user’s selected criteria, instead of just sticking to state borders, city boundaries, and other universal place markers.
