We are pleased to announce a new neighborhood oriented social network website, culvercrest.nextdoor.com
NextDoor.com is a social network designed specifically for neighbors to keep in touch with each other. It is a great place to collect recommendations, find out about local happenings, ask your neighbors a question, or get the latest information on what’s going on within the neighborhood. The requirement to joining is that you live within the Culver Crest boundaries.
The new culvercrest.nextdoor.com is for the benefit of all neighbors living on the Crest. It is administered by NextDoor, not by the Culver Crest Neighborhood Association, and thus CCNA is neither responsible for nor has any jurisdiction over the contents therein. We suggest you read NextDoor’s Manifesto and their About page to make sure it’s right for you before joining.
You can join either via an email invitation from one of your neighbors, or by going to culvercrest.nextdoor.com and forming an account with your Culver Crest address.
We are introducing a new feature on the CCNA website: real estate postings. These postings are intended to be the digital age equivalent of the one-sheet that you typically find in the realtor boxes on properties that are up for sale. So rather than pulling over and grabbing a sheet of paper (assuming there are any left and they’re not all soaking wet), just click on the image in the post.
Here’s how we intend to add these real estate postings. When we hear about a new listing on the Crest (we subscribe to a realtor search-engine query that sends us information whenever there are new listings) we go grab the main picture from the MLS site, create a post here on this website, and link the picture to the original MLS (Multiple Listing Service) page. That’s it!
We would like to clarify what these real estate postings on culvercrestna.org will not be:
- An exhaustive list: Each posting is individually done by hand. The set of posts on culvercrestna.org are not the equivalent of a computer-generated search. If you’re using culvercrestna.org as your primary search tool for property availability in Culver Crest, may we suggest you’re in the wrong place!
- An indication of the property’s availability: When we find out that a place has come up for sale, we add a post. But once it’s on our website (which is basically a blog), there it remains, even if it has sold or been taken off the market. The only thing you can infer from a posting is that the property was put on the market once upon a time.
- Guaranteed to be timely: we may be out of town when your place goes on the market, so there is no guarantee that we’ll add it. But you’re more than welcome to let us know if we missed it, or to give us a heads-up that we should keep an eye out for it.
- An endorsement of any particular realtor: The MLS listing usually contains the selling realtor’s contact information. Should you desire to purchase, we highly recommend you enlist the services of a qualified realtor who is acting on your behalf as buyer. We have several really good ones in the Crest.
Finally, a large part of the reason for adding real estate posts on culvercrestna.org is to add pictures and keep the website fresh. Also, over time, we expect to have pictures of many of the houses here on the Crest. A visitor looking for more information about what our neighborhood looks like might see all the historical for-sale postings and get a better sense of the character of our neighborhood.
