Have you ever worked on titles for vacation properties? Boat access properties can pose a challenge since there’s no public road or standard civic address to search for. Isolated far north locations pose their own search hassles as well. Using only the limited information available in a real estate listing, VuMAP is the only tool that lets you locate the PIN for these difficult to search for properties using a map.
Because of the high resolution aerial imagery included in the application, you can see infrastructure on the ground like hydro corridors that can help you track down an isolated property, or see where on the property the structures are located. If the property is located within the shore road allowance, you’ll see it immediately. Isn’t that something you’d want to know before deciding to purchase a property? The added details you glean from using VuMAP let you work more efficiently and sets your title search service apart from the competition.
