Online PR News – 18-October-2016 – FRAMINGHAM, MA – Location Certified has unveiled its powerful nationwide listing-enhancement system for real estate agents, available at locationcertified.com. Location CertifiedTM works by calling attention to homes in low-traffic, low-crime neighborhoods with high-performing schools. Determined by an automated analysis system, addresses that meet or exceed all tests on traffic, school performance, and crime rates are eligible to have their agent use the Location CertifiedTM logo and other services to help attract buyers.

Designation as "A Location CertifiedTM Home" indicates that a property is in a low-traffic neighborhood with low crime and high-performing schools. Certification involves the use of a proprietary algorithm, is strictly based on location attributes and is independent of the building or structure that is on the property.

The concept for Location CertifiedTM was based on the desire by agents to promote the neighborhood attributes of their listings in an objective and inclusive manner so as to provide the best service to their listing clients. The service helps all buyers - regardless of race, national origin, religion, sex, disability, or presence of children - find the best house for their needs, wants, and budget. Eligibility for certification is not based on the physical condition of the property, price, size, or any factors beyond proximity to busy roads, performance of the schools serving the property, and local crime rates. As a result, very expensive mansions may not qualify, while the most modest homes may. The reverse situation is equally likely.

Addresses can be tested for free and then placed on reserve which gives the reserving agent exclusivity for the service while they attempt to get the listing. Agents then use the Location CertifiedTM certificate and other marketing services to stand apart and help attract buyers by calling attention to the qualities of its location. For addresses that qualify, agents are given service options that range from $15 to $30 (one time, non-recurring). Yard signs are also available to help in marketing the Location CertifiedTM home. All leads generated by the certification go directly to the listing agent, with no referral fees.

“Sellers are frustrated when their home is not promoted for its strongest selling points and buyers are burdened with visiting properties, sorting through satellite images and digging into school and crime data for each listing that fits their budget,” said David Hitrys, Co-Founder of the company. “Now, agents can test addresses and include Location Certified in their marketing plan and since sellers prefer to list with agents who show the strongest plan, it came as no surprise during our tests that agents using it secured more listings.”
