Coming next week, we are adjusting how property locations are determined on Matrix map searches. Currently, the location of the property (noted with the pushpin icon) is placed at the street level, often at the bottom of a driveway. In an effort to avoid confusion and improve map accuracy, we are moving the location of the property to the center of the property, and away from street level.
Moving the location of the property to the center of the lot will:
- Improve Matrix map search accuracy
- Ensure a more accurate identification of the listing’s location
- Avoid confusion
Just check out the map below of a bird’s eye view of the MRIS building here in Rockville, MD. Notice the purple pushpin at the street level? That is the current way properties are identified, even though our building is further back. The blue pushpin represents the improvements coming next week, and correctly marks the location of MRIS at center of our property, avoiding any confusion on which building is actually ours. So in bird’s eye, aerial, or road view, your listing location will always be clear. Stay tuned for more information next week!
As a listing agent, if you disagree with the location of the pushpin, you always have the ability to reposition it to what you believe is a more accurate location.
