What Does Nearby Places Provide Subscribers With?

Nearby Places allows you to explore sites near a designated location that you’ve chosen. There are a variety of options to choose from including schools, businesses, transport, emergency services, service stations & fast food resultants. On Mapview, the Nearby Places tool looks like this:


How can Listing Nearby Places to a Site Benefit a Subscriber & Their Business? 

One of the benefits of having businesses listed in Nearby Places is that it helps determine how developed that area is. This helps the user decide if they want to do business or live in an urbanised region.

Nearby schools & hospitals, for example, located in school catchment areas may add 10-15% more real estate value and revenue to the property. Following this logic, when you add your clinic or hospital to Nearby Places, it further provides opportunities for people who are looking for jobs. In highly urbanised regions, these people can expect high wages and other amenities that can increase real estate value. 

Nearby transport—with the expense of a car and traffic—allows people to choose to use public transport to travel around. Homes near transport routes make it easier for residents to check the distance between their homes and offices or other places of interest, easily move throughout the area, and determine how long each commute will be.
