Arizona MLS – Geographic Drawing Tool
Today we are going to explore the geographic drawing tool for the Arizona Regional MLS. This drawing tool is a very powerful feature that you can use to find your next home.
There are 3 different drawing tools that you can use with our MLS search tool:
These 3 tools can be very useful to you when you have decided on what geographic areas that you like the best and have specific boundaries that you would like to stay in.
Clicking on one of these tools and drawing the shape on the map will define that area as one of your search criteria. Once you have it drawn out, the Arizona MLS search tool will bring up every home that is available in that area, as long as it fits within your other search criteria.
Here are some screenshots of the tool in action:
The most basic drawing tool, great for drawing out areas of interest that have specific boundaries, such as streets. For example, a home buyer may think “I would like to find a home between Power Road and Higley Road (east and west) and between Queen Creek Road and Riggs Road (north and south). This is the perfect tool for that!
This is the circle tool, which we use very frequently to define a specific radius for your search. Many people start their home search, thinking that they would like to live within a certain number of miles from their current job, family member, etc… Just click on the circle tool, start at the center point, and draw it out…. You’re in business!
The polygon drawing tool for the Arizona Regional MLS is perfect, when you have varying boundaries that you would like to find a home in. As you can see above, we’ve followed along the south 202, to the 101 and have gone up to the 60. Double click to complete your polygon!
