Pat Starnes Snippets: September 2010

Easy to Use Zip Code Tool...Why Didn't I Think of That Before?

Sometimes, when researching properties to show a client, we need to know the zip code of a particular area, especially in larger municipalities. Most MLS's provide the capability to search by zip code and it helps to know the exact boundaries the zip code encompasses.

Today while searching for comparables, I found this easy-to-use zip code tool -- ZipMap.net. You can enter a known zip code and see a google map with the zip code overlay, or enter the address and find the zip code.

I was so impressed with this simple site that I've added in to my website. Try ZipMap.net. You'll wonder why you didn't think of it before.
