Map searching tool

You can always switch from the list view to the map view and vice versa using the option on the top right corner. Searching using the Map view is really useful when you’re looking to buy or rent in a specific area or to get a feel of how prices differ depending on your location.

The map view also offers a few specific search tools: by neighborhood, zip-code, radius and so forth...

Search by Neighborhoods

This method allows you to perform a search in a specific neighborhood or group of neighborhoods. The choices you have depend on which zoom level you are at:

  •  A lower zoom level - you can select a wider area (e.g. Manhattan, NYC; Hamptons, Suffolk County);
  •  An intermediate zoom level – a more detailed area, like clusters of neighborhoods (e.g. Midtown, Manhattan, NYC; Northampton, Suffolk County; West Side, LA);
  •  A higher zoom level – a specific neighborhood (e.g. Chelsea, NYC; Bel Air, LA).

After selecting one or more neighborhoods, click the "Search" button on the left to start the search.

You can remove a selected neighborhood from the search region by clicking it again on the map.

Search by Zip Codes

You can pick one or more zip codes to search in. You need to be at a higher zoom level in order to identify the targeted zip codes on the map.

After selecting one or more zip codes, click the "Search" button on the left to start the search.

You can remove a selected zip code from the search criteria by clicking it again (on the map) or by clicking the "X" icon after the zip code on the left.

Search on Current Map

Search for results within the current map view boundaries.

Search by Radius

The tool allows you to search within a circle defined by yourself. Click somewhere on the map and draw a circle around that point to define a custom area. Click "Done" to make it your search region, and press the "Search" button on the left to start the search.

You can refine the defined area at any point - expand it or contract it by dragging the highlighted spots on the circle.

Search by Polygon

You can draw a custom polygon on the map to search in. Click "Done" to make it your search region and press the "Search" button on the left to start the search.

You can refine the defined area at any point - expand it or contract it by dragging one or more of the polygon's highlighted points.
