Fast Property Search Map - Zoocasa [in Beta]

Fast Property Search Map - Zoocasa [in Beta]

Zoocasa Property Map Beta
Extremely fast and smooth mapping tool for searching property in Canada

"Zoocasa.com is a new, innovative way to search for homes in Canada. Combining listing information and mapping technology provided by Google Maps, Zoocasa.com allows users to personalize their search experience and discover community, demographic and lifestyle information to help them choose the right home."

Highlights - The interactive google map is linked to the interactive sidebar when a property icon is clicked on the map - the sidebar moves to show the user more information. Beyond the summary is an even more detailed on the specific property.

More going on behind the scenes
The map can display more than just property for sale - schools, book stores, department stores, post offices, bakeries, gas stations etc. to name a few - (the list goes on).

Searching can be done by specific location or number of rooms, highest/low price or even the number of days a property has been on sale for.

Though it is the smoothness and speed that impresses most - there is large amount of information that is getting processed behind the scenes, but the data on the map never seems to be overloaded - this is difficult to achieve but Zoocasa has done a fine effort. Well done

Also look out for the Research Tool if not familiar to the area - very helpful
average housing prices in a variety of ways .... neighbourhood specific information including demographic and lifestyle details"

There is also a fully documented FAQ (good to see in beta) for users benefit and highlights ways to get the more out of the site.
And to top it all if you do find a bug you can report it (this feature is missed on many sites!)
