Using Our Polygon Search Tool To Find Ottawa Real Estate

If you're searching for an Ottawa home or condo, then making use of our polygon search tool will allow you to easily customize your Ottawa real estate search within the boundaries you define on our interactive map search.

This is our favorite way to search as it allows you to see every home that is within the specific area that you want to live. In addition to setting your boundaries, you can also customize your search with the rest of the options available including property sub type, price range and more.

To make things even better, after you create your search you can save it so that you can easily go back to it without having to set your boundaries and search options again. Once saved, you can also opt to receive email alerts. If new properties come on the market that match your search criteria, we will automatically send you an email alert to notify you.

It's an extremely valuable feature. You can use it to search for all types of property for sale including homes, condos, commercial property or vacant land. If you're looking to rent, you can also set it up to search for rentals only.

How To Set Up a Polygon Search:

  • Visit our map search page
  • Click "Draw Polygon"
  • On the map, click to where you want your boundary to begin and continue clicking around the map until you return to where you start and have defined your boundary
  • Enter the rest of your search criteria on the right hand side
  • Click the "Refine Search" button

It's as simple as that. Once set, only homes in the area you specified that match the search settings you input will show on the map. You can then click the "Save Search" button to receive email alerts.
