Last night around midnight, John L. Scott launched it's new online toy for Home Buyers to make searches easier with the Neighborhood Wizard search tool. The Neighborhood Wizard allows searches to be customized by "drawing a boundary line" with the mouse around the area that the Home Buyer is interested in. This allows a narrower search area than could be done before, and helps to make sure a Home Buyer does not miss a home that the Listing Agent may have entered under a different neighborhood name, or perhaps the Home Buyer is unaware of.
So just after midnight I was playing around with this cool new tool and did several searches to get a feel for how it works. The last one I did was a complicated boundary outline around Alki which was fairly easy to do once you got the hang of "clicking" at each point before changing direction.
Bravo to John L. Scott (Okay confession...JLS is my broker so I am a little biased, but this is a really cool tool for Home Buyers!) for continuing to be a major leader with Real Estate innovation!
