Use our special Map to compare rental properties in the same neighborhood quickly. Each page of property listings on GoSection8.com contains a Map of available area properties. The Map displays the location of all the properties listed on the property page. The Map also features:
- Green Houses – When you roll your cursor over one of our GoSection8.com Green Houses on the Map, the cursor changes from an open hand to a pointed finger. Each Green House represents a GoSection8.com listing. Clicking the pointer on a Green House brings a pop-up screen with details about the selected property. Click the blue details link in the pop-up screen to access the entire property listing.
- Orange Person Symbol – Place your cursor over the Orange Person symbol in the upper left of the Map. Click your right mouse button, and the Orange Person will move where you drag it. Release the right mouse button, and the Map displays the Google street view of the Orange Person’s location. Works best if you minimize the Map first.
- Plus (+) and Minus (-) – The Plus and Minus symbols allow you to expand or reduce the Map area you’re exploring. Clicking the Plus sign lets you zoom in, clicking the Minus sign lets you zoom out. Best use: Zoom in on a house you like. Then hold down the right mouse button and move the mouse. The Map shifts to the area to which you moved the mouse. Great for identifying multiple available rentals in a neighborhood you like.
- Map Styles – In addition to the regular Map, you can view your neighborhood or area using a Satellite view. This view only adds value if you zoom in (+ sign) on your chosen property. The zoomed-in Satellite view gives you a good idea of the surrounding landmarks, such as roads and buildings. For a cleaner Satellite view, eliminate the check in the Labels box. Another choice: Terrain. You must be zoomed-out (- sign) to use this function in Map view. Clicking the Terrain box gives you an idea of the natural features of the neighborhood, such as hills and creeks.
To use the Map to see more properties in the area, scroll down to the bottom of the page and hit Next. The Map will change (along with the properties listed) to show the locations of the next page of GoSection8.com listings in the immediate area. Wait until you see how great the Map works on our mobile-phone product!
