Revaluate Celebrates Its First Month Of Livability In New York City!
If we were writing a press release (which, I mean, we could … nothing’s really stopping us), it’d probably go something like this:
REVALUATE LAUNCHES DATA-HARNESSING REAL ESTATE SITE.
CONSUMERS DISCOVER WHAT IT’S LIKE TO LIVE SOMEWHERE, PLANETS ARE ALIGNED, WORLD PEACE IS ACHIEVED.
NEW YORK, October 14, 2014. Revaluate, the only real estate site that lets you know what it’s really like to live somewhere, announced today that its entire staff is, pretty much, a torrent of emotion and overcome by rivulets of glee after the company’s first month in business in New York City.
After launching its beta in The Big Apple at the beginning of September, consumers who were once downtrodden and hamstrung by a lack of data about housing in the city were finally able to break free, come into the light of comprehensive information, and find peace in the soothing embrace of Livability.
“Wow,” said Chris Drayer, Revaluate’s co-founder, “I guess when you make it there, you really can make it anywhere.”
“They like us. They really, really like us,” said Max Galka, the company’s data geek-in-chief. “I’m gonna have to take a moment. Talk amongst yourselves.”
OK, fine. The two didn’t really say those things, but we’re just trying to capture the spirit of the thing. The whole Revaluate team is just, in all sincerity, feeling all warm and fuzzy inside (where it counts) after the reception its fledgling search tool has received.
Revaluate, which compares addresses in New York City to one another and assesses each on environment, quality of life, safety, and expenses, and then generates a “Livability Score” based on the information found, is giving consumers a whole new lease (pun totally intended there) on real estate and making it possible for them to find out, without actually having to move, what it’s really like to live someplace.
“It’s like a dream,” said Drayer (as far as you know) in response to Revaluate’s reception in NYC. “I feel like Julie Andrews in The Sound of Music. You know, when she gets to the top of that flower-strewn mountain, twirls around and sings ‘the hills are alive’? Except I’m not wearing a dress. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.”
To mark its first month online, Revaluate is upping its game and throwing out a little “virtual confetti.” To make their Livability Reports even easier to read & digest, they’ve added snackable badges to make choosing a new apartment as easy as pie. With just one glance, you’ll know what’s up at your new place. There’s also a dead sexy new feature that lets you compare all the properties you’re looking at. It’s rad.
“Man. Real, quantifiable information, made easy to understand. When we set out to create this company, we said, ‘that’s so crazy, it just might work’,” said a bemused Tim Seagraves, the team’s co-founder and web developer. “And it did.”
Revaluate, founded and launched in 2014, is a new breed of real estate search that tells consumers what it’s really like to live somewhere. Revaluate and Know More.
