How it Works

EstateBlock.com – New Real Estate Search Engine that helps homebuyers in their search and with getting the best deal during negotiation

 

User friendly and innovative Real Estate Search Engine with listings' database in the Lower Mainland. Bigger than Realtor.ca (All MLS® listings from all brokerages + New Construction).

 

Know everything about the listing. 

What really separates us from the rest is the tremendous amount of information visualised on our maps. We include crime and demographic map layers, schools, daycares, transit, climate, ALR layers, floodplain information, noise data, comparable listings, and more.

 

 

Save search and get new listings before other buyers.

All new listings that match your search will be sent to your email at the same time as all the REALTORS® in the Lower Mainland receive them. Realtor.ca, as an example, sends new listings to their users only after 2-3 days, which is deadly for buyers who are looking for hot deals that are usually sold in 1-2 days.

 

 

Looking for hot deals? 

We’ve created a special algorithm that shows listings that are much cheaper than comparable listings in the same neighbourhood. Feel free to use this tool to find listings that are 20-30% cheaper than their value.

 

 

We speak your language. 

We are working as a team with the most experienced local Mandarin, Cantonese, French, Punjabi, Tagalog, Urdu, and Russian speaking REALTORS®, as well as many other languages, to ensure that you receive the best experience when buying or selling Real Estate!

 
 
 

 

SCHOOLS

Only on EstateBlock can you find 655 Lower Mainland school service (catchment) areas with a rating system similar to the Fraser Institute. You can clearly see which listings are serviced by which schools on the map, and filter listings that are only serviced by the best schools:

 

 

 

SEARCH BY SCHOOL NAME

Search for properties by desired school catchment area by choosing the school layer and clicking on the school icon:

 

 

 

SHOW ONLY LISTINGS WITH GOOD SCHOOLS CLOSE BY

You can use a School filter to show listings that are serviced only by good schools using the rating slider in the Schools layer. You can also combine the rating slider with the distance slider and only show listings that are serviced by highly rated schools that are also very close to a selected school (250m, 500m, 750m, etc). 

 

 

 

CRIME

Based on fresh data from BC RCMP and Statistics Canada, we created Crime maps so users can, in a second, determine the crime and drug situation in the area compared to other cities:

 

 

 

DEMOGRAPHICS

Based on data from Statistics Canada, we created Demographics maps so users are able to see interesting demographic information on the neighbourhood.  The information includes Education level, Income Levels, Unemployment Rate, % of Singles, % of Immigrants, etc. As an example, please see the Heat map below with the Education level layer applied:

 

 

 

TRANSIT

We Implemented information about Transit stations on the map as a layer, so you can now use a Transit filter to show only listings that, for example, are in a radius of less than 250m or 500m from a Skytrain station. This gives you the ability to only view listings that are located within walking distance from the Skytrain station, and hide all other listings from the search result:

 

 

 

NOISE, EMF POLLUTION, CEMETERIES

How often do you spend precious time searching properties, only to find out that the listing you liked is butting up against a very noisy road, or sitting right under high voltage power lines? No more! Use our exclusive, one of a kind noise and EMF pollution filter to hide all listings that you don’t want to see. Click on the “More Options” button in the menu to use this filter.

Hint: Combine “Noise” filter with “Transit” filters and see listings that are within walking distance of the Skytrain, but are still far enough away so that you won’t get any noise from it. 

 

 

 

LOOKING FOR HOT DEALS? 

We created a special algorithm that shows listings that are much cheaper than comparable listings in the same neighbourhood. Feel free to use it to find listings that 20-30% cheaper than their value. Act fast on these listings; they are usually gone within the hour after appearing on the website. 

 

 

 

ALR AND FLOOD MAPS

Use both ALR and Flood layers on map view to see if the listing is inside an ALR or Flood area. You can also use Filters in the “More Options” menu to hide listings that might be affected by ALR or Flood.

 

 

 

COMBINE FILTERS, SAVE AND GET NEW LISTINGS ASAP

Now, the best part of these filters, options, and functions is that you can combine them in order to focus on only your perfect listings. Create your perfect search, save it, and set a new listings email alert on “ASAP” to receive new listings at the same time as all REALTORS® do.
