Search By Map

Each week we will be featuring a new tip to help you take full advantage of the tools Homekeys has to offer. This week's tip is "Search By Map." If you have any suggestions about tips you'd like to see, feel free to Contact Us.

Zoom into the map by either clicking on the map or using the map controls. You can also use the  button to crop a box and specify an area for the zoom.

If you change the map look at the  button at the top, left of the map. This button will retrieve the number of listings the system found on the map view.

Once you zoom into the map, you can use the  button. This will allow you to draw an area box on the map and the system will tell you how many listings can be found in that area. Draw multiple boxes and when your ready use the Retrieve Listings button to retrieve the listings.

The system will retrieve 100 listings at a time. Use the paging function at the bottom of the listings result to page through all the listings that are available.

If you want to change the sort then use the drop down boxes above the listings result.
