Using the Research Parcel

Each week we will be featuring a new tip to help you take full advantage of the tools Homekeys has to offer. This week's tip is "Using the Research Parcel." If you have any suggestions about tips you'd like to see, feel free to Contact Us.

The Research Parcel is a very useful tool when you want to know information on properties surrounding the one you are interested in. This is a great feature because you can go through the neighborhood of the property you’re looking at and get an idea of what other homes in the area are worth and what they sold for in the past.

Click the Homekeys' Search button to activate the tool and then click on the center of a property. A window will pop up with the property’s address and estimated value. You have the option to view details, which will give you the county record information on the property. In addition, you can choose from aerial view, comparables, or estimated value.

When you close the pop-up window a yellow box with the estimated value will be placed on top of the property. You can do this for as many properties as you like.

The Research Parcel works a little different when it comes to condos. When you click on a condo building you will get a list of the units inside. From there you can select a unit and get all the same information you would get from any other property. When you close the pop up window, now the yellow box displays the number of units in that building.
