Trulia unveils interactive map & more

Boot Camp feature for Tuesday, April 12, 2016

Trulia adds features to help you find your next home.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    It’s that time of year when lots of folks are on the move.   If you are thinking of buying, renting or selling…there are plenty of resources available online.   One of the most relied on is Trulia,  which has added some new features.   Chief Economist Ralph McLaughlin say they include what Trulia calls Live Well Maps…

“What do we mean by live well?  It’s a combination of three factors.  First is neighborhoods that have a high share of quiet streets.  Second is neighborhoods that actually have a high number of places that are great to play in.  So things like trails and parks.  And third is neighborhoods that have a high share of amenities that we’re calling care and essentials.” 

Places like hospitals and other medical facilities that are nearby.  You can find more at Trulia.com.  You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
