Movoto Real Estate Mapsearch Over Time

We set out this year to improve our much loved Mapsearch feature. It was the foundation of our site when it fist launched in 2005. We were one of the first, if not the first, sites to offer a map based real estate search. However, we had not updated Mapsearch in the 5 years since its release, so we decided it needed an upgrade to web 2.0.

We rolled out a major UI overhaul at the beginning of the year and have been improving it ever since. Gone are the days of the brown and red Movoto; the new search epitomizes our new site experience. We gave Mapsearch two oft requested features: a list view and the ability to the move the map around at will. We also introduced more search criteria options and a better user interface.

We believe the end result is a much more user friendly experience. The map loads super, super fast and all the interactions are quick and seamless. We will constantly work to make small upgrades over time, but we are really happy with the current version. Let us know if you have any suggestions!

Happy house hunting.
