Why Growth Maps and local real estate forecasts matter a lot. Growth Maps started in 2010, where we started looking for good current information (data and trends) that could be applied against local areas to find the best potential properties to purchase. This involves both GIS mapping software, access to the most current monthly updated social-economic data, and local real estate forecasts.
All mapping software required programming to accomplish his goals, and was not available online in an interactive UI. Further, the information, updated daily, was just not available.
Most demographic and economic data was based on the 10 year Census, and other Government statistics that were released annually. We set out to solve this dilemma. Realizing how expensive was the software and the data he knew this was well out of reach of all but the wealthiest investors.
The need was great and the opportunity was greater and local housing market predictions were and are needed. We began testing mapping systems and data accuracies and reliability of data suppliers.
For many years we struggled, and investing over $400,000 in data, mapping systems. Data we have tested include: ESRI, EASI, MapInfo, Haver Analytics, Geolytics, and various government agencies and universities. And purchased and tested mapping software from: Geoserver, Mapserver, MapInfo, ESTI, SpatialKey, Push Pin, and others, just to find that no off-the-shelf software offers a solution that helps individuals or businesses leverage current local geospatial information.
After many years of struggles, and after developing over 8 prototypes, we finally found a good solution, which delivers current local data information, with a custom programmed reliable mapping system, so everyone can be informed as to the latest local trends, real estate forecasts, and the latest real estate ;information.
With better local real estate technology and housing market predictions, the investment in real estate, is a click away. If you have not done so already, please fill out the box on the right and
