Neighborhood Profile Redirection

The LiveBy neighborhood finder provides automatic redirection to neighborhood profiles based on an address or lat/lon coordinate. This can be used to create links on property pages that direct homebuyers to neighborhood information for a property or listing.

Here's an example of a dynamic link to direct to the neighborhood profile for a lat/lon coordinate:

<a href="https://liveby.co/neighborhood?brokerage=woodsbros&lat=40.773201&lon=-96.644859" target="_blank">
  View Neighborhood Profile
</a>

Redirection URL

The base URL for the neighborhood redirector is:

https://liveby.co/neighborhood

Additional query parameters are used to direct the user to the correct neighborhood profile based on the brokerage, address, or lat/lon.

Required Parameters

brokerage

The brokerage parameter is required, and should be the the same as the last part of the neighborhood finder URL, like woodsbros.

Example:

https://liveby.co/neighborhood?brokerage=woodsbros

Note: If only the brokerage parameter is provide, the user will be directed to the brokerage's neighborhood finder page powered by LiveBy.

Optional Parameters

lat/lon

If the latitude and longitude coordinates for a location are known, they can be specified as the query parameters lat, and lon.

Example:

https://liveby.co/neighborhood?brokerage=woodsbros&lat=40.773201&lon=-96.644859

address

If the latitude and longitude are not known, a complete address can be specified using the address parameter. The address parameter must be a url-encoded/escaped string which includes the address, street, city, state, and zip.

Example:

https://liveby.co/neighborhood?brokerage=woodsbros&address=1987%20Sewell%20St%2C%20Lincoln%2C%20NE%2068502

Note that the address query parameter should be encoded/escaped using encodeURIComponent or something similar (like rawurlencode in PHP).

utm_source

The optional utm_source parameter identifies the referring source domain and is used for analytics purposes. It's usually a short string, like woodsbros.

Example:

https://liveby.co/neighborhood?brokerage=woodsbros&lat=40.773201&lon=-96.644859&utm_source=woodsbros

utm_medium

The optional utm_medium parameter identifies the location of the link on the referring page, and is used to track the success of the placement of a link in different locations or mediums.

Some possible values for utm_medium might be property_listing, banner, or sidebar. While this parameter is optional, it allows LiveBy to provide analytics about the success or popularity of neighborhood profile links in varying locations.

Example:

https://liveby.co/neighborhood?brokerage=woodsbros&lat=40.773201&lon=-96.644859&utm_source=woodsbros&utm_medium=property_listing
