Latest REsearch Enhancements

Satellite Imagery in REsearch Maps


Satellite-Imagery-Settings-ZoomWe have added “Satellite” imagery as a base layer to the REsearch map. This provides another option in addition to “Aerial” imagery. Both options will remain available, allowing you to select which best suits your needs!

To select which imagery option you’d like displayed in REsearch, click the “Show Layers and Legends” icon in the upper right of the map display.

  • The “Satellite” base layer:
    Provides complete statewide coverage, which supports wider (zoomed out) views that show more of the island.
    Provides more recently captured imagery, more frequently updated directly by our map provider.
    Can be more easily combined with optional map layers, which will be placed above or in front of the satellite base layer.

The “Aerial” base layer:

  • Provides greater detail, supporting deeper (zoomed in) views.
    Provides better alignment with parcel, street, and other boundary lines.

Better and more powerful mapping tools are a top priority for our development team. Please stay tuned for more enhancements to REsearch maps in the coming year!

Open Larger Map in the MLS Mid Format


MLS-Mid-Map-TallWe’ve also improved the functionality of the main, MLS Mid format. Now, when the format displays two photos and a map, you can click on the map to open a larger map window!

Now, you can more easily visualize where a property is located, working with a larger and interactive map. In addition to adjusting the zoom level, you will have access to many of the other map tools in REsearch, including the ability to display different map layers.

Of course, if you would prefer three photos (and no map) in the MLS Mid format instead, you can change its display under the “Settings” menu in REsearch. You can even hide all images.

Easy-to-Find Helpful Links


\While we strive to ensure that REsearch puts all of the information that you need at your fingertips, we know that you often access other services and tools in your work.

To help you access some of the most commonly referenced websites and resources, we’ve added a new ” Links” page to the main sidebar of REsearch.

Now, whether you want to check out REALTORS® Property Resource (RPR), find the link for zipForm, or visit the website of your local association, those sites are just a couple of clicks away. As an added bonus, we’ve also provided links to local Homebuyer Assistance Programs.

If you have suggestions for other websites that are especially helpful to real estate professionals, just drop us a line!

These are only the latest REsearch enhancements delivered this year, and there are more improvements to come! If you have comments on these additions, or have a suggestion to make REsearch work better for you, please don’t hesitate to get in touch !
