TLC – True Lifestyle Cost – an exciting core service from NorthstarMLS, uses Big Data to help you show home buyers the true cost of homeownership.

TLC taps the most trusted and up-date data sources to provide a solid benchmark to show the true costs of all the expenses that comes with buying a home: Commuting expenses, energy bills, car insurance costs, local day care fees and more.

TLC then takes it one step further, allowing the data to be updated by you and your sellers, improving the data by including what your sellers really pay for home costs. This seller-sourced information makes the benchmark numbers that TLC provides even more accurate. That’s something you can’t get from a Zillow search.

Try TLC today!
When you’re signed into Matrix, click on “True Lifestyle Cost” in the External Links box.
