StreetAdvisor Gives People Insight on What It's Really Like to Live Somewhere

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - December 18, 2007) - is asking homeowners and renters, "Does your street pass or fail?" People want to know what the best streets to live on are and also what streets they should avoid. Now they have a resource.

What is to travel, is to products, and is to restaurant reviews, StreetAdvisor is to streets. It's a free, entirely new kind of online real estate community where people provide a real-life "insider" view, making StreetAdvisor the essential residential guidebook through user-generated summaries, stories, pictures, videos, and invaluable insight.

StreetAdvisor is an online community where homeowners, renters, and home buyers can share and learn about quality of life on specific streets, along with the neighborhood, local services and related details known only by those who have lived there.

Each person can rank the streets where they live, lived or visited, contributing to the overall StreetScore ranking displayed for each street. If a review doesn't yet exist for their street, they can be the first to add it in less than 30 seconds.

Consumers can share and discover vital details including noise levels, traffic, neighbors, entertainment, and public services, etc. in a way that wasn't previously available on the Web. It also allows for firsthand recommendations and negative experiences about local businesses, entertainment, services, lifestyle, and back road gems unbeknownst to outsiders.

In addition to street reviews, people can contribute and read content for cities, states, and countries. This extends the community for people to communicate with each other and encourages conversations specific at every level.

The community provides information for residents of the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia. Just within the first day of the site being public, received over 60,000 streets visited. As the word spreads, the site continues to grow.


Founded in 2007 by Jason Spencer and Adam Spencer, helps people learn more about their communities while helping others make better decisions about where they choose to live. The site will evolve to include additional services to facilitate online conversations at the street level, while creating a forum where professionals and consumers can participate in bringing their street and neighborhoods online, in a public forum.
