    city snapshot lysthouse

    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.

    Local Schools – View local schools on the map

    Map and other Statistics – You’re going to love exploring the map on the City Snapshot to explore dining, entertainment, and many other local amenities!

     

    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.

  • Great Time for Veterans in Texas to Take Advantage of A VA Home Loan

    Hey all,

    6% commission assassin and your favorite real estate blogger, Jon, here. It is gorgeous outside today in Dallas, TX and I wanted to take the time to let y’all know what is going on in the real estate market here around our HQ here in the DFW metroplex. In case you missed my blog on the North TX Real Estate Market, let me catch you up to speed. Now is a great time for home sellers in North, TX. And if you are thinking about selling your home, seriously, give LystHouse a call. We are looking out for you and we know every penny counts when you’re moving. It can be a big headache. BUT, our team here is going to make it easy for you and take excellent care of you. That, I PROMISE.

    I just used a VA home loan to purchase my first home. I am so glad I had LystHouse walk me thru the entire process. I saved about $10,000.  Let me also tell you that my girlfriend is super happy too.

    You know at LystHouse about 1/4 of our employees, including myself, are Military Veterans or still serving in the Reserves or in some fashion. We run a tight ship and are really proud of our Military team that we use as a workforce multiplier going to fight for home sellers and home buyers every single day. If you need help with your veteran’s home loan or have questions, just ask to speak to any one of our Veteran’s on our staff here. They will set you straight.

    Going back to the DFW Real Estate Market, let me say one thing. The real estate industry here is losing their death grip on the MLS. Thankfully, LystHouse has the courage to fight against these ridiculously high 3% commissions by leveraging the power of technology. It makes things super easy for our real estate agents, but most importantly, it makes things easy for you, our customer. That is our priority and is at the forefront of our business model.

    You know, real estate agents that aren’t leveraging technology are way behind the times. They are gonna have to ditch the brochures, ditch their rolodex, and catch up and lower their commissions or else their business just will not survive. They are going to have to do the RIGHT thing. I’m proud I work for a company that is leading that fight not just professionally, but also morally, and ethically.

    Again, if you want to sell a home, buy a home, take advantage of a veterans home loan, or just talk to someone about what your real estate options are, give LystHouse a call. We are here to help answer your real estate questions. You’ll get as much professional real estate agent support as you need or want.

    Call us for immediate assistance. (855)866-8339
