How Search by Radius Works

The search by radius feature is straightforward and user-friendly. Here's how it works:

  • Activate Search by Radius: Select the search by radius option within the “More” filters section. A visible circle, representing the radius boundary, will drop onto the map.
  • Define Center Point: The system will automatically set the middle of your current map view as the center point of your search.
  • View Results: The map will display all parcels or sales within the specified radius, highlighting the search area.
  • Adjust Radius or Center Point: You can change the radius distance or move the center point to refine your search. If you need to change the radius, edit the radius value. If you need to set a new center point, move your map, then select the “Place New Point” button. To apply your changes and re-run the search, select the "Redo Search" button. The results will update to reflect the new center point and radius distance.
