Take a virtual ride through dozens of neighborhoods with community experts
Who’s our client? This is a neighborhood expert who helps you find the community the best suite for you and your family’s needs. They offer a unique approach to learning about your neighborhood via sound experiences.
House hunting is a time-consuming process. Imagine being able to narrow down the communities and neighborhoods you’re interested in without having to get in the car.
So the aim of this project is to help realtors and home buyers get the necessary information in order to choose the perfect neighborhood/area. It allows anyone to place audio onto specific geolocation on a map. And then be able to connect those audio pins to make tours as in a museum but this will be outdoors. The goal is to have the maps API provide turn-by-turn navigation to each audio pin. Each pin/geolocation will be associated with an auto-play sound recording that lasts on average 20-30 seconds.
Hothoods mobile application allows a realtor to create guided driving/walking tours to educate home buyers on the various neighborhoods in a city. These drives will be narrated by realtors’ voice - further selling their brand in that area.
The mission of HotHoods is to simplify the process of house hunting and to give customers an opportunity to do an independent investigation in order to determine if it’s worth it to pursue a meeting with a realtor in that location.
What issues HotHoods had:
Real Estate search takes 80% of time and efforts of buying process
Lack of existing services, that provide information not only about real estate units, but also about surrounding infrastructure
Realtor is forced to repeat the same intro about each real estate unit to each client
Lack of automation team, who can provide full cycle development of the tech solution
