Every real estate agent will tell you there is truth to the old adage that says when it comes to buying and selling properties, the three most important factors are location, location and location. There are many levels of location to consider—region, state, city, neighborhood and finally, subdivision. And all of them can be important to choosing the right home as they affect taxes, job opportunities, school choice, and quality of life. But it is often the immediate area around a home—the subdivision—that has the biggest impact on daily life and as a result, the long-term resale value of a home.
That is why we created Maponics Subdivision Boundaries TM, a geographic dataset that provides real estate consumers and professionals a clear and consistent way to identify and map the areas that define housing developments. Until now, data about subdivisions were only available through local governments or as attributes within property listings—neither of which can be used for systematic filtering, display, analysis and online mapping across large geographic areas throughout the U.S. Subdivision Boundaries is a unique dataset that includes names, locations and boundaries for more than 702,000 real estate subdivisions across 1,019 counties in 47 states. Contact us for more details on coverage.
Subdivision Boundaries are created using patent-pending technology that transforms a blend of GIS and public records into accurate polygons that represent the perimeters around housing subdivisions. Like all Maponics products, quality is central to our process for creating and updating subdivision data. We’ve defined more than fifty quality metrics that our GIS professionals analyze to ensure data within the product meet our rigorous standards.
