Where Real Estate Gets Its Dirt

Redfin Buys Walk Score.

Looks like Kelman couldn’t let 2014 go by without doing some acquiring of his own.

Redfin Buys Walk Score

“The acquisition is Redfin’s first and the reason for it is simple: We want to give folks a complete portrait of what it would be like to live somewhere new, within the house and in the surrounding neighborhood.”

I’ve been a bug fan of Walk Score for a long time. It was one of the first APIs we integrated in to Cloud CMA. Over the years when giving demos I would ask the audience if they have heard about Walk Score, at first I would explain it. But now they have done such a great job or working with MLS that I usually just get a lot of heads nodding.

Huge congrats to Matt Lerner and the rest of the Walk Score team.

  1. We used Walk Score on our sites as a widget for a while. I would like to see a fresh script where someone has plugged it in. Consumers do benefit from the info and acquisitions usually spawn fresh ideas.
