List of all MLS® Real Estate Listings: Houses, Condos, Apartments and Land for sale in Greater Vancouver, Canada.

Online PR News – 19-January-2014 – Vancouver, BC – New real estate website was just launched that will give homebuyers and investors much more information about their potential new neighbourhood and listing than ever before. This Real Estate Search Engine has a listings database in Lower Mainland bigger than Realtor.ca (All MLS listings from all brokerages + New Construction)

The new website, www.estateblock.com not only has a listings database in Lower Mainland bigger than Realtor.ca (All MLS listings + All New Developments) but also differs from most other sites, because it includes comprehensive information that is not available on competitor sites. Many home buyers are looking for not just listing information, but also want to know which schools are in the area and how they are ranked, the crime rates in their desired neighbourhood, demographics data, nearby shops, daycares, groceries, banks and transportation information.

Website is also providing advanced search possibilities. Homebuyers now can search using “price per sq.ft” filter, find listings for example in 200, 500 or 1000m radius from Skytrain station, schools or daycares. Website is automatically comparing prices for similar homes in the area and showing lowest mortgage rates available in BC. Users can create “alarms” and receive new listings that match specific criteria as soon as they are listed in MLS.

The team behind the new website saw an urgent need for this type of information to be given to the community in Lower Mainland, especially new immigrants who don’t know the area, or the province.

The website goal is to give people peace of mind by informing them of important demographic issues. The heat map features gives coloured maps that show the quality-of-life subjects that are most important to new home buyers, like Education level, Unemployment Rate, Nationalities, Languages, Income Level, etc. As an example, please see the Heat map below with the % of Mandarin language speakers in Lower Mainland:

Everyone has heard stories of people who buy homes in what they think is a safe neighbourhood, only to find out there are serious problems, such as drugs, high crime rates and schools that are less than desirable for their children. Worried about moving next door to a drug house? With the latest data from Stats Can and the BC RCMP, homebuyers will know the crime rates in any neighbourhood, as it relates to drugs, break-ins, and more.

The website works to eliminate those problems. Now, people can see exactly what is going on in their desired neighbourhood.

One very big concern for parents is schools. They may find their dream home in a particular neighbourhood but if the school within the catchment is not desirable, this could deter parents from buying. Only on EstateBlock you can find 655 Lower Mainland public schools with service (catchment) areas PLUS all private schools. The website has a very comprehensive rating system using same source data as Fraser Institute so parents can rest assured that they are getting the most accurate data possible. Homebuyers now can search for properties by desired school catchment area. People just need to click on the heat map and find everything they need to know about the school that their children would potentially go to.

Daycares information can also be found, with ratings and recent inspection data from Fraser Health . A list of licensed daycare facilities is available for all neighbourhoods in the lower mainland area.

The website also gives detailed information about public transit lines, in relation to specific neighbourhoods, including prices, schedules and different transit options, including distance to the nearest skytrain station. Homebuyers now can search for listings for example in 200, 500 or 1000m radius from Skytrain station
