PLEASANTON, Calif., April 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- RentalRoost, the pioneers in lifestyle-based home and apartment finding, have launched a home valuation tool that uses various data points to accurately predict the current value of your home. This tool is available for all properties nationwide, and users can contact a RentalRoost Real Estate Pro to have an expert explain the valuation results. Experts can also discuss home buying versus renting.
On RentalRoost, users can search for neighborhoods and properties using lifestyle-based criteria, including school quality, kid-friendliness, transit, dining, shopping, arts and culture and pet-friendliness, alongside traditional criteria like bedrooms, baths and price. For each neighborhood, users can also view detailed demographics such as pie chart of marital status, household income, occupations, academic achievement and more.
The accurate home valuation tool helps users decide whether renting or buying is a better option for their current situation. The RentalRoost Real Estate Pros also work with the users to help them understand the pros and cons of each option.
"Both renting and buying real estate is often confusing and time-consuming," said Nitin Shingate, co-founder and CEO of RentalRoost. "We hope to make this process easier, more transparent, and even fun."
RentalRoost also provides Facebook IQ, which uses social media data from users' Facebook account to make personalized housing recommendations for homes and apartments, while providing a match score to show how compatible the user's lifestyle would be with that property. This can help users find longer-term rentals and homes that are perfect for them.
