home buyers in canada

Thanks to heavy television advertising, most of us have heard of the various dating sites that exist today.

There’s Match.com, PlentyofFish.com and eHarmony.com, among many others. Of course, the idea behind all of them is to try and bring together two people who have common interests.

Well, low and behold, let us introduce to you a free online tool called “Home Tribe Match” that’s being billed by its founder as the “eHarmony of real estate.”

First and foremost, let’s state right up front that this site is currently confined to Canada (the city of Edmonton, specifically), as indicated in a recent piece posted on CTVNews.com. Yet, this concept is still quite intriguing, to say the very least.

“Home Tribe Match” is an app which asks home buyers a series of questions before matching them up with what could be their perfect home. Users are asked numerous questions that go well beyond their budget and the number of bedrooms and bathrooms they are looking for.

Users are asked such questions like what their ideal commute would be, what locations they would like to be close to, how much they worry about crime and violence and if they would like to live in a neighborhood with residents of similar ethnicities.

Utilizing the answers provided, Home Tribe Match then recommends home options. In fact, one Edmonton resident said she ended up purchasing a home that was among the top 10 matches offered to her.

Will this app take off and spread around the world? To be honest, we don’t think anyone can predict that. But, it’s certainly worth monitoring.  Stay tuned!
