Home Search Update ‘ Now with Schools

Buying a house is all about location, and proximity to good schools is one of the big factors in choosing where to live. Today we launched nationwide schools search on Yahoo! Real Estate. Users can search and browse local schools via an interactive map interface, and refine and sort their search by school district, distance, grade level, or school type (e.g. public, private, charter).

We partnered with leading non-profit, GreatSchools.net, for detailed school information, statistics, parent reviews, and links to test scores and related content.

Each school detail page also features a neighborhood map that leverages the Yahoo! Local API to plot nearby grocery stores, parks, restaurants and other local businesses with user ratings and reviews to help users get a better feel for the neighborhood.

Please let us know what you think by leaving a comment below.

Thanks!
Brian Rothenberg, Yahoo! Real Estate
