Here at The MLS, we’re constantly striving to improve the technology we provide to our members. As a result of these efforts, we have a lot of exciting new features in development, nearly ready for our users to enjoy. Here’s a preview of what we have in store…
The new radius search feature will give users the ability to search for listings within a designated distance from their desired location. This can be utilized in a number of ways:
- My Location – This is a fast and easy way to use the radius search tool. All the user
has to do is click the “My Location” button, which will drop a pin on the map. Then, the user can click the pin and enter the distance desired in the radius search field. This will generate a circle, which users can click and drag, adjusting to their liking.
- Address Bar – This one’s very similar to the “My Location” option! The user will input the desired address in the address bar, which will drop a pin at the specified location. From there, the user can set the boundaries of the radius.
- Parcel – We’ve also added the radius search to the Parcel Identifier. This gives users the ability to interact with the map while researching parcel information! Once the user selects a parcel, they will be able to enter the desired radius distance, enabling them to search even more specifically than ever before.
The addition of a check box on our map pins will offer users a convenient way to save time and easily keep track of interesting listings they spot in their search. With this new addition, users will be able to add any listing to their results without leaving map view. Clickingthe new checkbox will automatically add the listing to the compiled results–so easy!
We will also be making multi-pin checkboxes available. Users will be able to flip through listings at the same property, checking whichever ones they find interesting without cluttering their results with the properties they don’t want.
