  1. I did get the zip codes to show up… and I think it has a few sweat features.

    Here’s how it worked for me.

    1) Click on one of the “R” icons… (I think it stands for “region”)
    2) Click on one of the “C” icons… (I think it stands for “city/county”). On the pop-up bubble, click on the link that says “Zoom in for Zip details”
    3) Click on one of the “Z” icons… (I think it stands for “zip”).

    When mousing-over the “z” icon, the boundary of the zip code shows up… I really like the implementation.

  2. Hey thanks for the mention guys! Galen – we pushed some bug fixes so I think that was the difference for you. Gotta implement an IE hack for the google maps API. surprise surprise.

  3. I have been tracking the northwest real estate market since 1995. The one thing I have found not just in the NW but all around the country is that the market is different in every neighborhood. Some are very popular while others are in transitions this is true in buyers markets and sellers markets. We have recently broken the NW down to neighborhoods and have started tracking statistics by neighborhood. It has proven to be a very interesting task.

    Here are some examples:

  4. Dustin,

    Thanks for looking and the feedback.

    We track community data to the block group level as well as census tract. We also track all 100,000 + public and private schools in the country like Bellevue High School. I find it amazing that 95% of the websites don’t offer this data. Our clients are surprised with the amount of time their customers spend looking at school information and community information vs listing data.

  5. I do agree with Galen – It was a little hard to figure out that I had to click on the “Zoom in for zip details” link, rather than just zooming in. Perhaps that can be fixed so that if you zoom in, the zip stuff just shows up?

    Neat tool. I do like all this web 2.0 real estate data, but it’s quickly becoming info overload. I still think most people are going to shop by neighborhood/school district and basic house features (bedroom/bath/sq.ft). But, after that, when comparing 2 or 3 homes, it’s nice to have additional data (sq.ft. cost of neighborhood, zoning law changes, school info, etc.).

    Can probably eliminate 80% of the homes you wouldn’t want to see on that stuff alone.
