The patent application (Publication Number: US20240037680A1) describes a computer-implemented method for generating and displaying an overall home score for a property. The method involves retrieving various attributes of the property, such as fire hazard, safety, weather hazard, and property feature attributes. Based on these attributes, the method determines home score factors including fire hazard score, safety score, weather hazard score, and property feature hazard score. The overall home score is then generated and displayed by the computer processors. Additionally, the method includes displaying a map with color-coded indications of home scores for other properties, allowing users to compare and select properties based on their overall home scores and individual hazard scores.

Furthermore, the patent application details the ability of the method to calculate a neighborhood score by averaging the overall home scores of nearby properties. It also outlines the process of determining specific hazard scores based on attributes like distance from water or a fire station for fire hazard, burglary likelihood for safety, and various weather grades for weather hazard. The method can retrieve property attributes from external databases or mobile devices associated with the property. Overall, the computer system described in the patent application aims to provide a comprehensive evaluation of a property's safety and hazard risks through a systematic scoring system, enabling users to make informed decisions when selecting a property based on its overall home score and neighborhood score.
