Today we are excited to announce an improved experience regarding map area selection on PropertyShark.com thanks to our new Polygon Draw Tool. Several improvements have been deployed to the new tool which is now faster to work with and easier to use compared to our previous version. The goal was to offer our users a better tool they can use to refine their selection on Comparables and the Mailing/Data Lists services.
Whether you want to compare home prices or to generate property data lists in a specific area, you can use the Polygon Draw Tool to define the exact area you want, down to the street level.
How to Use the Polygon Draw Tool to Create Mailing Lists
Let’s say you want to create a mailing list with homeowners’ names and addresses living on a certain block. With the new Polygon Draw Tool you can do so by clicking on the Polygon tab and selecting a specific block by defining the points of the polygon, as shown in the picture below.
Your polygon can have as many points as you want (at least 3), according to the search area of your interest.
Other important product updates: you can now browse foreclosure listings on your smartphone or tablet more easily, as we’ve added a series of new features to improve the mobile web experience for all PropertyShark users. More good news on the mobile front: we’ll be releasing a PropertyShark iOS and Android app later this year!
