My lovely and talented wife hates it when I start raving about maps. “It’s unseemly”, she says, and besides, “hardly anybody loves maps like you do.”
So, here’s the compromise. I won’t rave about this map. Just go check it out.
I will say, not ranting or raving mind you, that looking for property on a map is much more useful than going over a printed lists. For one thing, you can start near where you or a friend lives and start scanning the neighborhoods you know. With a list, you just might miss a street or tiny cul de sac you aren’t familiar with. I love spreadsheets for doing investment analysis or running a database too, but there’s nothing as satisfying as cruising around a map online to see what real estate bargains are waiting for you.
