I am constantly amazed by how much information there is out there! Here are a few websites (and apps) that can be helpful when you are buying or selling a home or just want to know a little more about your neighborhood or the city you live in:
Walc is an app. If you want to take a leisurely stroll in a neighborhood you can check it out before you step out your front door.
Walkscore: this site gives you not only your home’s walk score but your bike and transit score as well. I use it all the time!
Greatschools.org: you have a chance to read school report cards with reviews from teachers, parents and students.
Mylocalcrime.com: Pull up any recent local crimes from vandalism to car break ins.
Gravy is an app that gives you the rundown on events from rock concerts to church suppers.
Last but not least – Portlandmaps.com: If you’ve never been to this site you just have to go. You will find specific information about permits, crime, taxes and more for the City of Portland!
