Your local housing market defined by you!
The "My Areas" option brings you to a mapping interface where you can draw your own areas for customized statistics.
Pick a predefined area on the left or type a location (address, city, landmark, ZIP code, etc.).
Use the polygon or circle tools to draw custom shapes on the map. Connect first and last points to finish a shape. Restart, save and trash areas with ease.
To delete shapes you are working on and start over, select the crossed-out circle to receive a Delete Shapes message box.
If you are happy with the shape(s) you have created, select the green Save button. You'll get a message that asks you to choose to create a new area or replace an existing area.
Once you have saved your shape, a green box will tell you the amount of square miles and the amount of listings that the area contains. You can choose to See Stats or go Back to the Map.
Area shapes are accessible on the drop-down list at the top-right of the map toolbar. Shapes not visited for an extended period will still exist on the list but will go from Active Areas to Archived Areas.
Delete saved shapes by clicking the red trash can.
After shapes are made and saved, a blue Stats button will exist in place of the green Save button. This will bring you to the stats in the main viewing area of InfoSparks. A My Areas filter will now appear alongside other Area filters.
Inactive/Archived Items in My Areas
A custom-designed area is listed under Archived Areas if it is not accessed for 60 days. To reactivate an area, select it from beneath the Archived Areas within the drop-down list. With the area selected, simply choose Save to reactivate it.
