  • Vintage of the parcel boundary data. This represents the currency, defined by the version date, of the property characteristics.
  • The Tax Roll date, which represents the county release date for the tax roll.
  • The most recent date of recorded property transactions for the county. This includes updated property records with new ownership, sales dates, and transaction details.
  • When property transactions updates from County Recorder offices were first captured into the Transaction History of properties in the County.
  • Our new Report data Issue command allows you to log a data issue with our support team without leaving the product.

Updated Results List Options

Results List Icons

You've asked for it and we're delivering. Prior to the implementation, the Results List had to be removed in order to see the properties that were covered by numbers. With this new implementation it can be done (while retaining the highlight) without removing the results list.
