Farm FAQs

Step 1: Create an Area to Farm

      1. From the Home Screen of the application select More…
      2. Select Neighborhood Farm
      3. Select Find a Farm Area
      4. Map Options allow you to choose how you wish to view the map: Standard, Satellite, or Hybrid
      5. Locate an area on the map you wish to farm
        Drag your finger on the map to move the map, pinch in/out to zoom in/out
        Or, search by city/state/zip using the search bar at the top of the screen
      6. Select the Draw Icon (polygon) in the lower-left

        Tap to drop connecting points on the map around your farm area
        Close your shape by clicking on the first point
        Select Apply in the upper-left
      7. To apply filter criteria, select the Filter Icon
      8. Select Get Report Count from the bottom navigation
        You will receive the property count, and turnover rate
        The turnover rate is calculated based on full transfers over the past 12 months in the area you defined. Turnover rate does not take into account any filters you may have applied.
        The maximum report size is 500 properties. If you area contains more properties, refine using filters, or create a new shape.
      9. Select Get Report
        Selecting Get Report will use your farm credits and compile the report.
      10. Type a name for your report and select OK

Step 2: Designate a Walk Order

      1. From the report options screen, select Walking Farm
      2. Select the Map Icon in the upper-right corner
      3. Default view is Owner Occupied status, or toggle between Lead Status
      4. Select Draw Walk Order
      5. Drag your finger on the map across the pins to draw the order you wish to walk the neighborhood
        • TIP: Draw your line ON the house pins for best results 
           If your farm is missing properties when you sort, it is possible that the line you drew missed some of the properties.  This is common when a user is trying to sort a very large farm (a hundred to several hundred properties) – the line does need to be drawn quite close to the map pins, and in a very crowded map this can be difficult to do.  A “best use case” for walking farm is to sort a list of properties you plan to walk that day.  This allows you to “zoom in” on the map to a smaller area, and draw a more concise line.
        • Select Done to apply the walk order
        • Select the first pin in your order, and tap the address flag to begin walking
        • Or, tap the Back button on your device to return to the list view, and select the first property
