Quick answer, HomeZilla is a one-stop shop for neighourhood information for Canadian home buyers. We offer lists of schools, the distance to restaurants, parks and much more. It can be accessed for free and with just a single click.
Longer answer, HomeZilla's main goal is make it faster for home buyers in Canada to choose a place to live. We aggregate tons of data so home buyers can have a one-stop shop for all the information they need to decide where to live. The first set of data we collected was public schools. Schools are a big reason many people choose a neighbourhood but there was no easy way to find all the schools in a particular neighbourhood. Our goal is to continually collect data and make it easy to access so home buyers can find this information quickly.
You will also find business listings so you can research the coffee shops, pubs, restaurants or any other business in your neighbourhood. Researching an area online also needs a visual touch so we offer access to Flickr photo-sharing service so you can find local photos of the area you are researching.
