Understanding the Map layers



To help draw the Neighborhood and/or Similar Market Areas, you can toggle ON/OFF map layers.  

To turn ON a map layer, tap the eye icon .  The map layers we currently have available are:

  • PRICE PER SQ FT: This shows the median GLA price per square foot for the block.  
    • Gray: + 5% of the subject property's block price per sq foot.
    • Orange: each level is +10% above the previous.
    • Blue: each level is -10% below the previous.
  • SCHOOLS: You can toggle between showing Elementary and High school boundaries.
    • Locations of the schools are plotted on the map to identify where the comps are in relation to a school.
    • School ratings are also displayed.  The ratings are from a national database based off of test scores.
    • Thicker transparent black lines are school boundaries.
    • The dotted black lines show that there are more than 5 schools for the boundary.  We didn't want to display all the lines otherwise the map may get out of control.
  • CENSUS TRACT

 To view more of the map, you can click HIDE on the legend.

 

Map Layers in the Addendum

In the addendum, the PRICE/SQ FT map layer with your Neighborhood/Similar Market Area boundary drawings are automatically included (you can always remove it).  See example linked below.

You can always use the PRICE/SQ FT map layer as a justification to your GLA adjustment in your Comp Grid.
