You may already know that Flexmls offers pre-configured MLS map overlays (available in the Overlays drop down menu found in the top right corner of any Quick Search).

But did you know that you can also create and save custom map overlays?

Why Create Custom Map Overlays

Custom overlays enhance your search results and save you time, which equals faster, higher quality service for your clients.

Let’s say you have a client who really wants to buy in Arcadia. Searching for listings in that area isn’t simple because Arcadia isn’t a city. It’s a loosely defined area of the Valley. No problem! You can draw the boundaries once, save the shape as a custom overlay and re-use it with your other clients.

How to Create a Custom Map Overlay

Draw a polygon of the area using the map drawing tools, click Save and select Save Polygons as My Map Overlay.
