Earlier today, we noted that Corcoran rolled out some new features on its website. Among those we didn't highlight, but forwarded to us from a friend inside the empire, is this: "And, we have completely overhauled our maps service; now powered by Google, now you can locate properties using both satellite and street map views complete with fully interactive dragging, zooming and panning."
Which is true--well, sort of. Near as we can tell, Corcoran lets you see a property on a map once you've landed on the listing. Which is mildly useful. But we can't find a way to use a map to navigate multiple property listings—a feature de rigeur to users of Trulia, StreetEasy, and, as of just recently, Elliman (top). (Are we just missing it? If so, someone, hit us with the link.)
For what it's worth, Elliman's maps functionality isn't exactly front and center on its website, either. Baby steps, friends. We'll all get there eventually.
