What every agent should know about this unique mapping feature.

Today’s topic is the Court Retrieval System, a nifty tool that you should check out. Don’t just use it for tax record information, although that’s great too. What I love about it is its mapping feature.

To access the Court Retrieval System, log in to MLS and click on the CRC link beside the tax link. You can also access it from the main page. Once you’re in, you’ll see all the tax information, but the real gem is the interactive map on the right-hand side.

“This tool can give you tons of useful information. ”

Clicking “View Larger Image” on the map opens up a set of tools on the left-hand side. You can get school information, labels, property address, personal ID listing, flood zones, use gas, topography, zip codes, and much more. I find it particularly helpful for checking flood maps and topographic maps for sloping and identifying adjacent landowners.

You can hover over a parcel ID to see who owns it and answer your own questions without making calls or sending snips to your clients. You can also search for owner information on nearby properties.

The mapping feature is customizable and interactive, making it a fantastic tool for your business. If you ever have any questions, send us an email or give us a call. I look forward to hearing from you.
