In our last blog we covered how you can perform a search in the NEW GeoWarehouse with ease.

Once you have performed your search and have a match for the property in question, there will be a link below the search result called “Property Report”. You will need to click this link.

Alternately, you can click the push pin on the map which will open the dialogue window where you can click the Property Report link.

The Property Report will appear on screen and each section can be easily viewed by selecting the category:  Product Overview, Property Details, Site & Structure, Valuation & Sales, Plans & Surveys and Demographics.
