How Does Sterling Homes Identify Neighborhood Features?

At Sterling Homes, our mission is to provide a deeper understanding of what living in a home and neighborhood is really like.

With insights sourced straight from locals Sterling Homes helps prospective home buyers discover a place where they will love to live.

The Process

To find out what a neighborhood is really like, we ask our community to rate and review their neighborhood's features by answering questions that someone considering a move would want to know:

  • Do you plan to live in your neighborhood for five years or more?
  • Do you know any of your neighbors on a first-name basis?
  • Do you say Hi to your neighbors when you see them around?
  • Have you attended a community event in your neighborhood, like a block party or BBQ?

Neighborhood Features: Once we've gathered enough data around a specific feature, we report that the neighborhood either has—or doesn't have—that feature.
