Metro Special Report: First Time Homebuyer: The latest innovations to help you find property
Tech Tools help in quest for new digs
Toronto-based Hometrics is looking to be a disruptor in the real estate space by rating, ranking and analyzing every home.
Specifically, hometrics.ca provides information on a neighbourhood not easily found elsewhere, be it crime statistics on the street, number of residential complaints, building permit information, quality of local schools, and more.
Starting at $5, Hometrics says it breaks down multiple variables into easy-to-read reports. Most users opt for the full $99 report, which includes all seven segments for neighbourhood, street and property intelligence.
David Silverberg, Hometrics co-founder, says this proprietary "big data" technology can analyze and rank more than 500,000 residences in Toronto in just a few clicks.
