How Zameen’s Plot Finder differs from Google Maps
Let us introduce you to an exciting new development to emerge from within the fold of Pakistan’s largest property portal; a change that took center-stage only last weekend:
Zameen.com debuted its breakthrough ‘Plot Finder’ website feature that allows users to navigate through highly detailed maps of 2,500 housing schemes located in 38 Pakistani cities.
Starting with these ambitious initial figures, the company aims to map the full range of residential developments across the country; making the tool the go-to resource for plot searchers looking to score the best plot options with a simple click – and in minutes!
The firm has stayed true to its commitment to improve the country’s real estate industry and bring it on par with international standards. The launch of digitized residential society maps via Plot Finder is directed at helping individuals to closely examine their property of choice, and its demarcation within a housing society — without having to go through the hassle of visiting the site in person.
What exactly is Plot Finder?
Plot Finder is a website feature available at Zameen.com that will enable its users to view geo-coded maps of properties so that they no longer need to venture out in the field themselves in order to locate a plot or house that may interest them.
People can easily navigate through a wide array of property options from the comfort of their homes. With this feature, users can swipe through the on-site locations of more than two million plots and houses in the multitude of housing projects dotted across the country. As an added benefit, this web-based application has been designed to have a user-friendly interface, making it easy to use for people of all backgrounds. And this is just the start, with plenty more updates and improvements to be expected in the future.
What is the difference between Plot Finder and Google Maps?
Now, it is understandable that some people might wonder why they need Plot Finder when they could use Google Maps instead to get access to the same features. However, what they don’t realize is that the two entities are not exactly interchangeable as many believe.
Google Maps was launched back in 2005 and it has come a long way since. In its 14-year history, the service has utilized local experts in order to improve its accuracy and functions. Now, it is the go-to resource for people around the world that are in need of a map or require directions to a specific location. However, at times, even Google Maps seems to mix-up the streets and tightly-knit, haphazard neighborhoods commonly found in cities around Pakistan. It is not entirely accurate, especially in some of the remote areas of the country and this can be a huge problem for people trying to navigate their way through unfamiliar territory.
On the other hand, Plot Finder is a real estate-oriented website feature that has been developed exclusively to assist property enthusiasts in Pakistan, who can use this feature to properly visualize their plot or house of choice, without having to visit the location themselves.
The feature offers the following advantages:
- Accurate details on registered property addresses, plot numbers, locations, boundaries, and plot areas
- Satellite map variants to give users detailed visuals of the areas surrounding their selected property locations
- A novel ‘Collections’ feature that allows real estate agents to manage their available plot inventories smoothly – and to make personalized property collections based on their clients’ requirements (which can subsequently be shared with them via their own digital platforms).
As you can tell, even though both Google Maps and Plot Finder are map-oriented digital solutions, their specific benefits to an individual can only be determined based on that person’s requirements. For people interested in receiving up-to-date information and visuals of a plot, house or residential society, Plot Finder is the perfect solution.
In the near future, the developers aim to increase its functionality to the extent that it would even be able to suggest the nearest restaurant or gas station – based on a selected property’s location.
Further, the feature offers details of plot demarcations and society segmentations and is a convenient tool to shop for properties across Pakistan.
On a parting note…
Plot finder is only the beginning! Zameen.com is working on several projects that are designed to reinvent the real estate industry of Pakistan in a way that benefits the country’s economy and facilitates its citizens. After the initial positive response received on Plot Finder, the company plans to keep improving the feature by refining its accuracy even further and developing additional features for the convenience of its users. It seems that the real estate industry of Pakistan is in desperate need of technological uplift, and the country’s trusted and leading property portal, Zameen.com, is willing to go the extra mile in order to play its part in this tech-evolution.
