Many real estate professionals rely on GeoWarehouse to generate sales comparables – even more so sometimes than using their MLS systems. For this reason, we made this a priority in the design of the NEW GeoWarehouse, making this process that much easier.

In the NEW GeoWarehouse you don’t have to select a property of interest to generate sales comparables – simply select the Search Comparables option to the right of the search window and LRO drop down.

Once you do this a secondary tool bar will appear that contains all the parameters you need to select comparable sales in the area of interest. Simply select your criteria from the options listed.

Finally, click Find Comparables and a list of properties that meet the search criteria will appear.

  • You can change the orientation of the comparable sales results section from horizontal to vertical by selecting split screen icon.
  • Scroll through the comparable sales and de-select any results by removing the checkmark beside the address.
  • Refine your search by selecting the arrow to right of the criteria, make the amendment and select Refine Results.
  • The map and comparable statistics chart will be updated automatically.
  • Adjust the comparable sales results window in horizontal view by selecting the header and moving up or down.
  • Adjust the comparable sales results window in vertical view by selecting the right side of the page and move right or left.
  • Select the printer icon to print the report.
  • PDF report option COMING SOON.

If you are trying to generate sales comparables and would like more detail on the different criteria or an explanation regarding results check out our complete user guide here which includes further detail and imagery. Training is also available through the contact our trainers link on http://www2.geowarehouse.ca/resources-contactourtrainers/.

Throughout 2016 you have received an abundance of communication from us concerning the New GeoWarehouse, beginning with our Collaboration initiative, moving forward to the Early Release (that was announced last month) as well as the planned full release of the product. Naturally this has triggered some frequently asked questions to which we dedicate this blog.

What is the “Early Release” version of the NEW GeoWarehouse?

The “Early Release” version of the NEW GeoWarehouse is a more complete version of our online solution, but is still “in-development”.

It is your sneak preview to access and start using the NEW GeoWarehouse today!!

Teranet has spent the last two years rebuilding and refining GeoWarehouse using your feedback.  With your help, we have been able to identify and develop a solution that will support your current workflow in a faster, easier and more efficient way.

What is the difference between GeoWarehouse Collaboration, the “Early Release” version of the NEW GeoWarehouse and the NEW GeoWarehouse?

The GeoWarehouse Collaboration was the NEW GeoWarehouse in the building & development phase, and features were released periodically. A select group of real estate sales professionals were granted access to this environment and provided constant feedback, participating in focus groups, and filled out surveys to make sure the solution would support the ideal workflow for property and land information search.

The “Early Release” version of the NEW GeoWarehouse is a more completed version of our online solution but is still “in-development”.  This version is available to all real estate board users.

How do I access the “Early Release” version of the NEW GeoWarehouse when logged into GeoWarehouse?

Once you have logged into your GeoWarehouse Classic solution (current solution), select “Go to NEW GeoWarehouse” in the top right corner of the screen.

How can I revert back to GeoWarehouse Classic?

If you are in the NEW GeoWarehouse, going back to GeoWarehouse is pretty easy – just select “GeoWarehouse Classic” in the top right corner of the screen.

The NEW GeoWarehouse brings NEW and enhanced features, such as:

  • Enhanced Mapping and Search capabilities. Province-wide search capabilities for Address, PIN and ARN in a single Omni bar. Auto-suggestions by Address, Municipality and Owner.

  • Improved Comparable Sales parameters. Comparable sales search from any location on the map. New radius circle features: re-size on the map, drag center to a new location and delete/re-draw the circle. Search by custom polygon with an adjustment option. Real-time statistics.
