EveryBlock Atlanta

Jon Real Estate Leave a Comment

I am officially obsessed with EveryBlock Atlanta, an online news aggregator that pulls together all the information that you could ask for about what’s happening in your ‘hood. Well- not everything- it’s still in it’s nascent stages- but EveryBlock Atlanta can pinpoint the following info for every Atlanta neighborhood:

– Business Reviews (via Yelp)
– Real Estate Listings (via Trulia)
– Crime Statistics (via police reports)
– “”Deals”” (via ValPak)
– News (via several sources)
– Building Permits (via municipal reports)
The potential of EveryBlock Atlantahttp://atlanta.everyblock.com/ is unlimited- just take a look out how far they’ve tricked out EveryBlock Chicago, their hometown. Additional features include:
– Photos
– Business Licenses
– Street Closures
– Foreclosure Auction Results
– Restaurant Inspections
– Filmings
– Liquor License Applications
– City Press Releases
When you think about it, sites like this are a long time coming. In the past, you’d have to dig through a bunch of poorly designed, archaic municipal websites just to scratch the surface on this type of information. Now, it’s married with updated news and business reviews and set in a modern, attractive interface.
The AisForAtlanta seal of approval- the equivalent of Four Michelin Stars and the prestigious Daytime Emmy– hath been granted.
