Canadian home buyers to enjoy enhanced search platform

Late last week, the Canadian Real Estate Association and real estate information portal Local Logic have announced a new partnership which will see the latter provide property-specific neighborhood data for over 300,000 advertised listings.

Local Logic will buttress Canada’s largest real-estate website, REALTOR.ca, with crucial information such as proximity to transportation hubs and vital services, along with CREA’s precise data on neighborhood discovery and noise levels, nearby facilities like shops and schools, and many others.

“We are very excited to be collaborating with one of the top brands in real estate,” Local Logic CEO Vincent-Charles Hodder stated. “This partnership is further evidence that the real estate industry in Canada acknowledges the importance of neighborhood and lifestyle data for home buyers.”

“Through a pilot on REALTOR.ca, we saw a significant increase in the number of consumers who connected with REALTORS® from listings with this hyper-localized neighbourhood information so it’s clearly influential in the home buying journey,” CREA Interim Vice-President of Marketing and IT Patrick Pichette said.
