Do you want the most benefit when utilizing the Flexmls map? There are several different ways to view the map itself beyond using map tools such as shapes, overlays or the Nosy Neighbor option.

Satellite View

While the Map view is the default option, you can easily change to a Satellite view if preferred. This can be useful when identifying landmarks and specific features.

Street View

When using the Nosy Neighbor tool, locating a specific address via the pushpin or clicking any currently drawn shape, gives you access to the Street View option. This opens a new tab that allows you to navigate the streets and get a real-life feel of the area.

Bird’s Eye View

Similar to the Satellite view, the Bird’s Eye view provides a different perspective of the area. The Bird’s Eye view is taken at a 45-degree angle, which provides better details of structures and buildings in the area. This can be accessed via the Nosy Neighbor tool, the pushpin or by clicking a drawn shape.

Default Map

If you have a specific area you want to focus on each time you visit a Quick Search, you can set your desired location in the Default Map option. This will save you time and effort from zooming in or out of an area, as this option automatically opens to your preferred location.

Whether you’re looking for specific property features and assets, or just exploring a neighborhood, these tools can help you get a better sense of the surrounding location.
