Airbnb and Realtor.com team up to let homebuyers ‘live like a local’
Have you ever needed to move to a new area and wanted to know what your new neighborhood might be like? Sure you could research it online or even get a hotel for a few days to get a feel for it, but even in a hotel you never get the true local feel. But what if you could test drive your neighborhood and get a true feel of your new surroundings before you move? Now you can.
On Wednesday, Airbnb and Realtor.com teamed up to create a new function on their websites that lets you rent a house in your prospective neighborhood and test-drive the area.
“This collaboration with Airbnb reinforces our commitment to giving consumers unparalleled insight to make informed real estate decisions,” said Ryan O’Hara, chief executive officer of Move.
This partnership allows potential buyers to fully immerse themselves into their new environment and lets them discover the area or neighborhood that is right for them.
