The Estately Blog is a resource designed to help you decide which city or state to call home. We conduct both formal and informal research on topics ranging from home prices in relation to public transit stops, to the likelihood of surviving a zombie apocalypse by state. Shopping for a home doesn’t have to be stressful. We aim to make your search simple, reliable and fun.

Estately’s research and analyses have been featured in the The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, CNET, The San Francisco Chronicle, Houston Chronicle, NBC News, GeekWire, TechCrunch, and hundreds more.
