About Us and the Reports

NeighborhoodScout Reports is the premier neighborhood report product available today. Don’t make the largest purchase of your life without NeighborhoodScout Reports.

NeighborhoodScout Reports is built from the largest database of neighborhood statistics available today. Each report contains nearly 300 must-see statistics and provides revealing insights before you write that check for a house, or sign a year-long lease for an apartment. Exclusive crime risk data, patented nationally comparable school quality ratings, exclusive neighborhood home value trends, lifestyle, demographics and living conditions, even housing stock information is available for every neighborhood in America, all packed into each report.

Much of our data is patented, patent-pending, exclusive or proprietary. How can that be? Because we build the data ourselves! We are passionate about accuracy, and we see ourselves as being on your side – the consumer – so that you can make good decisions that reduce your risk, and help you and your family live better.

Whether you are shopping for a house, apartment, investment real estate, or making a site selection for a facility or retail operation for your company, our reports give you fast access to data available no where else, and at a price that cannot be beat.

Data for Businesses

We also provide enterprise access to our reports for businesses that need mission-critical access to hundreds or thousands of reports each month. Just contact us at or at 1-888-250-3200 to discuss your needs.

We also license raw data via API for select internal uses, such as for fraud detection, loss prevention, and insurance or mortgage underwriting purposes. Custom solutions are always available, so let us know how we can help you reduce risk, and save time and money while increasing revenues.
