Looking for the best of the best neighborhoods to buy a home in? TheHomeSites has analyzed nearly 27,000 zip codes across more than 3,000 counties in the country and now it is releasing the list of zip codes with highest premium scores in the top 20 counties
Oakbrook Terrace, IL -- (ReleaseWire) -- 06/22/2015 --A homeowner's search for the perfect home mostly begins with the search for the right neighborhood. "Many home buyers tell me that if they are new to a city, it is extremely difficult to decide on the right neighborhood or zip code to buy a house in. In fact, even if they know the city, every zip code and every block within a zip code could be very different. How do they evaluate the right area to buy a house?" said Rahul Uppal, founder of TheHomeSites.com. To solve this problem, TheHomeSites analyzed home values and other data across most cities in the US. Based on that analytics, it has now computed premium scores of nearly 27,000 zip codes across more than 3,000 counties. Neighborhoods with higher premium scores tend to have better perceived neighborhood value and benefits, homeowners tend to pay a premium to buy a house there, and households generally have higher income.
"The user feedback on the Premiumness Map has been extremely positive" said Rahul. "We have now taken the premium score analytics to the house level and are now offering premium scores for most US houses as well", he added.
Users can search premiumness of any zip code by going to TheHomeSites.com/premiumness and compare scores relative to the surrounding neighborhoods on the premiumness map.
Users can check the premiumness of any house, by typing in the address at http://www.thehomesites.com and see if a house is priced right for its premiumness and long-term value. TheHomeSites analytics on home prices is unique as it answers the "so-what" of the home price. If a house is listed for $300,000, TheHomeSites analytics answers if $300,000 is good, pricey, or in-line with the premiumness and long-term value of the home.
