Are Your Relocation Resources Lacking the WOW Factor? Create a Personalized Map!

If you've never relocated, understanding how difficult it is to rebuild your life in a new city can be tough. The friends you played disc golf with on Saturdays are gone, the park you barbecued at on long weekends isn't an option anymore, and even basic errands require a map. However, there are things you can do to make it a bit easier for your relocation buyers to turn a strange, new city into home.

Google's My Maps makes it easy to create and share personalized maps highlighting your area's best attractions and restaurants. You can even attach notes, pictures, and videos to locations to explain why the places you've marked are local favorites. Share copies of the map personalized with your relocation buyer's workplace, homes they're considering, schools their kids would be zoned for, etc.

About the Neighborhood

My Maps lets you add layers to your map to differentiate between location types. Create a map layer that identifies popular neighborhoods and subdivisions in your area. Use the "Draw a Line" tool to block off individual subdivisions, then add a paragraph describing each area. At the end of your description, include links to active properties in the subdivision and to your website's area page.
