Commonfloor.com, a pioneering online portal that combines property search with apartment management software, today announced the addition of a new map based search feature for property buying and renting. Integrated with Google Maps, map based search enables users to view properties available for sale or rent across the country, providing them a quicker and faster way to search for properties online.

Compared to the traditional key word or list based search mechanisms, map based search provides a single, comprehensive view of the area or locality that a user is scanning to buy or rent property. It reduces the number of searches one may need to initiate based on key words. The feature directly addresses the need to identify properties in areas / geographies that one cannot visit. When a buyer is searching for property in another city or region which he or she may not know well, the map based search helps in locating the right kind of property given his or her requirements, without having to call people / agents or travel to the region. Through this feature, buyers also get to know the proximity of key establishments like airports, railway stations, hospitals, schools etc, which aids easier decision making on the choice of property.

According to Sumit Jain, Co-founder and CEO, CommonFloor, “At CommonFloor, we have always been committed to providing the best user experience to our customers, not only in terms of comprehensive realty listings and information, but also through ease of use and better design. The map based search feature will aid our users in a faster and more defined search for properties across India and we are confident that customers will find this extremely useful.”

CommonFloor currently has 20,000properties listed on the map-based search, across 120cities and will continue to add to this.  Here is the map based property search on CommonFloor.
