Put a legend on the map so you can tell what the colors mean.1 voteupcoming feature · AdminProduct Management Team (Admin, Movoto Real Estate - Homes for Sale) responded
Hello! Thanks for taking the time to contact us. :) We are actually going to get rid of our current map pin style and go to one that is way simpler (with prices on the pins!). We’ve heard from a lot of users our current style is kind of confusing (and we agree).
In the meantime though, here’s a quick legend:
Red/Orange pin = Active home (not new)
Green pin = Active home, new to the site in the last 7 days
Blue pin = Sold or otherwise off the market home
Yellow pin = Pending home
“Open” = Open house
I’ll update you here when we release the better map pins for homes.
It has been helpful to see the crime reports for the area around a house for sale on other sites. Could Movoto add that as well.1 vote
Hello TeacherSL, thanks for the great suggestion! We’re adding it to our list of planned features for our property pages. Let us know if there’s anything else we can add to make home searching/buying easier!
I appreciate your website, i would like to sugest in the map to show area whrre gas station, grocery & bus stops are. It would help a lot.1 vote
Hey Marie, thanks so much for your awesome suggestion! We definitely want to include this in the future. Let us know if you have any other suggestions.
Hello! We had some technical issues with the local MLS and as such, couldn’t display any new homes in the Auburn area. We expect this to be resolved very soon. Sorry for any inconvenience this has caused!
It shows home on market 2 months. NOT correct. Listed and taken off Immed. due to county assessor correcting sq ft. from 1300 to 1900. How can we get this resolved......Actual date is Sept 22, 2014 on market. Please fix this....thank you in advance, owner 444 Richmond, CA1 vote
Hey David! Yes, we can certainly help you get your listing updated with the correct information. What probably happened is when it was relisted it was assigned a new MLS number that wasn’t caught in our system. What is the full address of your home so we can look it up in our system?
Nothing new than 12 days old all of a sudden. why?1 vote
Hello! Unfortunately we are experiencing data issues with the MLS for your area – as such we haven’t gotten any new homes listed on the market. We hope to have listings back by the end of the month but it could take longer. I’ll post back here when we get our listings back. In the meantime, you could browse Homes.com/Condos.com – I know they are still getting listings in the Sacramento area.
surely you can find more houses than this! I am very disappointed.1 voteupcoming feature · AdminProduct Management Team (Admin, Movoto Real Estate - Homes for Sale) responded
Hello, after investigating this issue it appears we do not work with a MLS that exclusively covers Columbus, so the houses we have come from MLSes in other areas – that’s why the number is so low. We are working to expand our coverage, but in the meantime, we recommend Houses.com for searching in Columbus. Let us know if there’s anything else we can help you with!
Thanks for bringing this to our attention! We are working on a patch to manually update the information (normally all our listings get automatically updated from the MLS when changes are made on their end).
Excluding "condos" will still show condos. Ugh.1 vote
Hey SmartChick, sorry to hear the condo filter doesn’t seem to be working. I’m having troubles reproducing the issue, so could you tell me the area(s) you were searching in and if possible give me an example of a condo that still showed up after you filtered them out? I’d really appreciate it! Thanks for pointing out these issues with our search!
The pop-up that appears over the map is no where NEAR the actual house. It's 5-10 miles NORTH of where it should actual point.
Doesn't anyone check this stuff????1 vote
Hi SmartChick, thanks for your feedback! We get all our plot points from the Google Map API, so we’ll check this out and see what’s going on. We’ll update the site with our findings. Thanks again!

I cannot update my movoto account as the area for infor is only half visible and cannot be completely seen. Needs to be centered by moving
to the right. I would like daily updates. Charleston/Summerville/North Charleston area1 vote
Hi Fran, thanks for contacting us and sorry my movoto is displaying incorrectly on your screen. We’re looking into this ASAP and I’ll let you know when we have an update on the situation.
On map view, once I scroll out of my initial area of search, the listings appear as the little red dot and have less "pop up" info on hover. Very frustrating. Map view needs a "search here" button.1 vote

Very buggy map. Useless to try to find anything.3 votes
Hi Jill, so sorry to hear you are experiencing problems with our map. Unfortunately, I have been unable to reproduce the problem here at our office. Could you by any chance send a screenshot of what you see to mradich(@)movoto.com (remove the ()s around @) so I can forward it to our engineers to fix?
Thank you so much for alerting this to us and I hope we can get it fixed for you quickly!
leaving property taxes out of the listing info and then offering mortgage calculators is laughable. how can you consider yourselves credible? perhaps i missed this info somehow ?!?2 votes
Thanks for your feedback! We are planning on getting public record data (including tax info) hopefully by the end of the year. We realize it’s a big missing component on our listings and we’re working on getting it as soon as we can. Thanks again for contacting us!

Hey Tyrone! Thanks for the suggestion! We are planning to get more types of listings in the future. What kind of listings would you like to see?
feedback: the map is so tiny on my laptop it's almost impossible to use. The huge ad bar at the top bites into the space.1 vote
Thanks for your feedback! I’ve forwarded this to our Product Dev team and the Marketing team. Thankfully, in a couple of months we will be releasing an improved map search that wont’ have the ad at the top. :)
