A New, Dynamic Portland Real Estate Map

Ever feel like you’re searching for a needle in a haystack while sorting through real estate listings? You know what you want. You know what you don’t want. But how do you find exactly what you’re looking for with so many options and when the market shifts and changes daily, sometimes hourly?

We have the answer: our new dynamic Portland real estate map.

In this article, we’ll show you what it does and what you can expect from it. But before we get to that, let’s first understand how VestorFilter™ has helped us create this amazing new and easy-to-use Portland real estate map.

Here’s the most exciting part of the real estate map:

Icons change size based on actual sq. ft. of the home.
Icons change basic color based on property type.
Icons change shade (gets darker) the more expensive a property gets.
All of this happens virtually in real-time as properties are updated direct from the local MLS.

What is VestorFilter™?

VestorFilter™ is a modern search platform that direct connects to our local RMLS system. It uses patent-pending smart maps and analytics you won’t find anywhere else.

Their groundbreaking real estate map technology puts all the complexities on the backend to make it easier for you on the front end. And that’s why we’re so excited about it! We want to do everything we can to make your search for your next home straightforward and successful.

A Search Bar More Powerful than any other Real Estate Website

Take a look:

Yes, like most sites you can search by address, city, school, MLS#, and more. But unlike all major real estate sites you can search by neighborhood and every single word written about every property in the MLS is index and searchable. Let me show you how it works:

We just went from 1578 properties for sale in Portland, down to 61 with a pool. Pool, however, is just one of a limitless number of examples. Type in any word you can think of, right in the search bar, that might be written about any property for sale, and suddenly you’ll get what you’re looking for.

Powerful, Unique Filters on Top of a One-of-a-Kind Real Estate Map

The new dynamic Portland real estate map has built-in and refined yet easy-to-use power filters. All it takes is one click to see, for example, homes with additional living quarters. Looking for a fixer as an investment property? One click for that, too. How about best price per acre of land or per multi-family unit? Once click for those, as well. Because the system direct connects with the local MLS, it can read and sort through every checkbox and it can also combine any keywords written about the property into smart lists.

Let’s take a look:

Endless Map Search Options

Once inside, you’ll also find a filter drop down menu on the upper right with a myriad of additional options to help you find the perfect home.

No Forced Registration

Because we want your home search experience to be enjoyable, we won’t force you to register for anything, and we won’t be tracking you down to have a premature conversation. All you need to do when you’re ready is respond to the convenient chatbot that pops up in the lower right-hand corner of your screen. No pressure. No hard sell. You’re in charge.

Easy Log-in

Of course, if you want to save a home or search criteria, you’ll need to have an account to save it to. We know you already have many usernames and passwords to remember and protect, so we’ve made logging in easy, too. You can one click to login with your Google, Facebook, or LinkedIn account and you’ll be set. Everything you save will stick.

Save Homes with Your Friends or Family Members on the Same Public Page

After you created an account and save some homes and search criteria (instant MLS alerts on new property meeting your criteria) you can invite any friend or family member to save homes on your dash. They will all show up together – the homes you’ve saved and a separate spot for your loved one’s favorites. Easy!

Looking for a Home in Oregon or Washington?

Visit our site, take your time, and have some fun with the new search tools. After they’ve led you to your top picks, get in touch, through the chatbot or by phone. Our top 1% buyers agents and 1% sellers agents have years of experience, and we’d love to help you on your exciting journey to find your next perfect home.
