HomeStar.co.uk Set to Launch in December; Opening the Doors to Local Resident Reviews, Ratings, Insights, and Opinions on What it’s Like to Live in Any Neighbourhood in the UK.
Resident-Generated Content Makes it Possible to Get an Inside Look at any Neighbourhood in the UK for the First Time.
Buying a home is perhaps the biggest financial and emotional decision most people will ever make. Location is an important concern for people when moving home yet most area guides are untrustworthy as they’re frequently biased, outdated, or irrelevant. No easy way exists to get reviews, ratings, and insights from people that know best about a neighbourhood: local residents.
A new website is launching later this year that is addressing these challenges head on. HomeStar.co.uk is a property and neighbourhood community where anyone can go to find and anonymously share real-time reviews, ratings, opinions, and advice about specific postcodes in specific neighbourhoods – all for free.
“Finding our perfect home matters a great deal to us in our daily lives, yet detailed information about what it’s like to live in certain areas and neighbourhoods is still very hard to find. We’ve built HomeStar to make it easier for anyone to peek behind the curtain of residents living in a neighbourhood – or even their next door neighbour – to get information that will help home movers feel more informed and lead to more people finding a place where they’ll love living” said Mark Pacitti, co-founder and chief executive officer at HomeStar.co.uk.
HomeStar is the only site that offers free access to real-time ratings and reviews of any neighbourhood in the UK alongside in-depth resident opinions on the pros and cons of living there as well as advice for people moving to the area.
“HomeStar is transforming the way people think about buying and/or renting properties,” said Mark Pacitti, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of HomeStar. “Moving home is probably one of the biggest financial and emotional decisions we’ll ever make in our lives yet still there is very little impartial and up-to-date information available about what it’s like to live in a new area.”
