Zillow, a real estate Web site has added several new community features to their site. The most notable are individual neighborhood pages in over 130 U.S. cities and 6,500 neighborhoods.

The pages have local demographics and real estate information and are designed for communities and neighbors to personalize. Users in a community can add photos, local news, and communicate with one another about neighborhood real estate.

"Adding the ability for neighbors to meet, share information and learn about their local neighborhood is a natural next step for Zillow. We started with individual Web pages and Home Q&A for more than 70 million homes, and today we’re bringing the conversation out to the neighborhood level," said Lloyd Frink, Zillow president.

"In the offline world, conversations happen all the time around homes, neighborhoods and communities. With these additions, we’re adding the data, tools and a platform for these conversations to thrive online — and help people become smarter about real estate, for free, in the process."

Along with neighborhood pages, Zillow has added a forum type feature called Zillow Discussions where users can talk about real estate topics on a national level. This is an area to discuss broader topics such as real estate investing, hiring an agent and the best way to show a home.

Zillow has also added a polls feature that allows users to create a survey and post it at the national or local level by ZIP code. The polls appear on neighborhood pages, city pages and all discussion pages on the site.
