How do I create my own boundary for listings when doing a search?

As long as you are registered on our site, you’ll have access to our custom boundary tool. The custom boundary tool allows you to find listings within your own desired area. Here’s how you can use this tool:

First, click on “Advanced Options” and then click on the picture of a map labeled “Create a new boundary” to open the custom boundary window.

You can drag the corners of this rectangle to your desired shape, drag the shape using the circle in the middle, and create more corners by dragging the smaller squares found between two existing corners. Once you create your shape, give it a name at the bottom, then click ‘Add’ to continue your search with this boundary. Be sure to run the search after creating the boundary. If you don’t run the search, the custom boundary will not be saved. You can maintain your saved custom boundaries from your Settings page.

If you have any general questions, feel free to reach out to us at support@streeteasy.com.
