Neighborhood Matchmaker Offers New Approach to Buying a Home

RISMEDIA, June 25, 2008-The team behind eppraisal.com announced the beta launch of hoodeoTM. According to the company, Hoodeo answers the question: where are my best places to live? Hoodeo allows consumers to start their home search by first knowing where to look. Whether consumers are relocating within an existing city or state, or moving to an entirely new area, hoodeo helps them determine which neighborhoods fit them best.

Eppraisal.com President Damian Scott says, “Hoodeo is a new approach to finding and buying the home of your dreams. Rather than searching for a home and ending up in a neighborhood, hoodeo allows you to find a great neighborhood first and end up in the perfect home.” Hoodeo goes one step beyond traditional “best places to live” lists by understanding its users’ preferences first before matching them with their personalized best places.

Dubbed “The Neighborhood Matchmaker,” hoodeo learns about its users through a series of questions about their lifestyle, desired property type and price range. That information is used to match them with potential neighborhoods that best meet their criteria. Matches are ranked from one to 10, with No. 1 being the best match.

For each match, users can then search available properties for sale. The property listings are provided by real estate search site Trulia® through a hoodeo-branded Trulia Publisher Platform site. Additional features include the ability to share matches with a friend and get an eppraisal – an automated value range from eppraisal.com – for each property listing.

Upcoming features include the ability to save matches, connect with real estate professionals as well as other users who have similar profiles, and contribute to neighborhood and community information.

“With lenders easing mortgage restrictions and home prices continuing to drop, now may be the time to scoop up the home you’ve always wanted,” says Scott. “Start your search on hoodeo to ensure you find a neighborhood that fits your lifestyle and meets your needs.”
