Which unit is on sale?

For a lot of condo listings, the map in redfin shows the entire condo complex. eg: http://www.redfin.com/MA/Shrewsbury/69-Lebeaux-Dr-01545/unit-69/home/16587031. I want to know which of those units is for sale. A lot of times some of the units may be close to a main road, across a cemetery, across the swimming pool, at the entrance or have some such characteristic undesirable to me. How can we see the exact unit on the map without having to go for a tour?

Re: Which unit is on sale?

Roger99,

Unfortunately in this instance we don't know which of these units is #69 as the street map does not seem to have the information as to which unit is which.  We could certainly reach out to the listing broker and find out easily enough and hopefully in the future Google maps will be able to find out which address is which in these types of complexes.  Perhaps some other mapping sites or programs might have that information but in general Google has a high level of address information and data.   

 

Good question and thanks for the post.

Re: Which unit is on sale?

Alex,

 

Every map on redfin shows a nice red border outlining the selected property. This line is not something seen on google, bing or any other map. So the redfin site must be drawing is based on some information it has, say from MLS.

 

For this specific property, can you contact the listing agent and find out the exact unit? On a related note, what is the best way for us to ask for more information about property before scheduling a tour?

 

Thanks,

Roger

Hi Roger99,

 

We get the red border from a third party data source, not the MLS... 

 

I'll let Alex handle your specific questions about this property :smileyhappy:

Roger,

I will have an agent reach out and track down that information so we can pass it along to you.  In general anytime you have a question reach out to the agent that covers the area you are searching and you are always welcome to reach out to me and I can put you bin touch with the best person to assist you in your search.

 

Thanks,

When you hit the "directions" link and plug in your home address, you can often narrow down the specific location when the results come up.

Roger I have placed multiple calls to the listing broker, but have not received a response.  I am still working on finding information on this unit in Shrewsury for you.
