Great news for home buyers! Now you can view the snapshot of a city you’re interested in by selecting the city from the LystHouse homepage. Complimenting our Google Street View integration, the City Snapshot allows our users to see photos and stats of the cities they are interested in in.
Features of City Snapshot include:
Walkability Score – this measures the walkability and pedestrian friendliness of neighborhoods based on the analysis of population density, road metrics, intersection density, block length, and hundreds of walking routes to local amenities. Amenities located within a quarter mile or 5 minute walk are given maximum points. Points decrease the longer the walk and the farther the amenities. After a walk exceeds 30 minutes, no points are given.
Transit Score – this measures how well a city provides access to public transportation. Transit score is based on analysis of data provided by public transit agencies.
Photos – Photos of the city are pulled from Google
Snapshots of home for sale – Every 5 minutes we pull the newest homes for sale within a city so you get the latest status updates on homes for sale in the cities you care about.
Properties for Rent – Every 5 minutes we pull all the newest properties for rent within a city so you get the latest status updates on homes for rent in the cities you care about.

We added this feature to further delight our users and make their real estate search experience more informed and efficient. We know that the city and neighborhood where you buy your home is just as, if not more important than the home itself. Google Street View and now the City Snapshot allow users to get to know more about their city by providing this precious information.
