San Francisco – April 19, 2010. StreetAdvisor (www.streetadvisor.com), the world’s first online community for “real-life” street, neighborhood and city reviews today launched its “What The Locals Think” location reviews platform enabling real estate portals, hyperlocal news and government websites to integrate StreetAdvisor’s patented scoring, reviews and ratings within their own applications.
The “What The Locals Think” platform enables real estate portals to offer reviews for any street, neighborhood, town or city within the USA, alongside a detailed rating and rank for over 22 “quality of life” factors including neighborly spirit, noise, crime, schools, parks, shopping and medical facilities. Reviews can be integrated within property listings and search results pages.
The platform has recently been adopted by realestate.com.au, one of the world’s largest real estate portals (6 million unique visitors Feb 2010) in conjunction with a custom white-label website. The rebranded “Local Voices” portal provides home buyers, owners, renters and real estate agents with place to create, share and find local information about streets and neighborhoods throughout Australia.

StreetAdvisor.com Co-Founder, Jason Spencer says “Location based content is incredibly valuable to the real estate selection process and to date, neighborhood information has been limited to demographic statistics, what we bring is the human element, reviews and ratings written by locals”.
The “What The Locals Think” platform provides various integration options ranging from data syndication via an API to stand alone custom white-labeling and widgets.
“It’s all about giving buyers and renters the best tools to help find the perfect place to call home”, said StreetAdvisor.com Co-Founder, Adam Spencer. “
“And with ratings and reviews so important to showing off the neighborhood, our location reviews platform provides the fastest way to get street, neighborhood and city reviews onto your real estate site.”
