Nextdoor App Rolls Out Real Estate Listings

Nextdoor, the social media platform for neighborhoods, is planning to roll out a real estate listing feature, which will showcase homes for sale in local communities.

The idea is to formalize behavior that’s been happening organically, suggests CEO Nirav Tolia. “These real estate conversations are already happening,” he said.

The feature is not only designed for homebuyers. It also aims to help users uncover changing real estate prices in their respective communities so they can evaluate price changes over time.

It is expected to bring in revenue for the company with real estate agents sponsoring the section. Tolia referred to it as Nextdoor’s second major monetization effort, increasing the company’s revenue streams beyond in-feed advertising.

While Tolia is reluctant to share user numbers, he expects at least 50 percent of the households in the San Francisco Bay Area will be using the platform by the end of 2017. He says the app’s demographic is 50 percent female, with $100,000 or more in household income.

Tolia expects Nextdoor to be in 85 percent of U.S. neighborhoods by the year’s end. The app is also available in Germany and Nextdoor wants to expand into India, Japan, and Brazil.
