Polygonally Search for Real Estate

John L. Scott does it again. JLS has rolled out their “neighborhood wizard” to help users more precisely locate a home on their consumer web site. JLS was the first to roll out a residential real estate site that featured auto-refreshing, draggable maps. Now you can still have that same functionality, but specify a polygonal shape on the map and only results based on your selected ammenity types will appear on the map. Since I’m in the market now, I found this extremely useful since I didn’t want to live east of a particular road I was able to specify the area west of that road and no results appeared on the east side – simply fantastic! You can read about it in detail in the press release or try it yourself on their site.
