StreetAdvisor will today launch a range of new upgrades that will give homeowners, renters, and buyers a more complete picture of where they could live.
The new StreetAdvisor provides a real-life “insider” view that provides users the ability to learn and share vital details about where they live, including noise levels, traffic, neighbors, entertainment, and public services in a similar way to travel review sites. Recommendations and negative experiences about local businesses, entertainment and services will also be supported.
StreetAdvisor’s street based reviews have been expanded to include cities, states, and countries.
Upgraded guidebooks now include four broad categories with the ability to create additional topics in a similar fashion to a Wiki.
Other new features include a member recognition system, “local expert program” and StreetAdvisor Billboards, a service that offers the ability to secure exclusive “run-of-street” advertising opportunities on a per city basis.
The site is currently in public beta and offers coverage for the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia.
