Real Estate Tools: Florida Zip Code Map 101

Jun 8, 2008
As a Floridian real estate agent, a Florida zip code map can wind of being your best friend. Even with the internet and all the advances in navigation technology, there's something to be said for having a physical representation of your area in front of you. It helps you get a visual of the area you service and how large an area you can reasonably service.

Since agents spend a lot of their time driving around prospecting and holding open houses, high gas prices have a huge affect on your bottom line. Florida zip code map helps you get an idea of just how big your area is and what kind of square mileage you're constantly traveling. By mapping out your area, you can decide how many miles it makes sense to work.

Any Florida zip code map you get should be available either as a whole state, or on a county by county level and clearly map out main roads and landmarks. It will also color code zip code boundaries as well. There are plenty of map sites online where you can purchase a zip code map or download one for free. Of course, you get what you pay for, so the free ones are usually low quality and not as detailed.

Once you buy your map you should be able to download and print it immediately. You'll be able to print out as many copies as you want, whenever you want. For each buyer you take out to look for homes, print out a Florida zip code map and plot your course to take the shortest routes possible. This'll help you save time and gas.

School district is often an important deciding factor for buyers. You can also use your Florida zip code map to impress them ahead of time. Find out which school districts are the best, what zip codes they include, and than map it out to show your buyer. The more tools and visuals you have and the more you anticipate their needs, the more impressed most clients are.

A Florida zip code map can come in handy for organizational purposes as well. You can use it to map out new areas you'll be prospecting each week. Prospecting is as essential as follow up to an agent, so it's important to spend several hours each week looking for new clients or leads. You can even have some fun - hang the map up, throw a dart and make a promise to yourself that you'll prospect wherever it lands.

Also keep in mind that an up to date Florida zip code map will often mark little landmarks and locations of interest that free maps don't recognize. Impress your clients by showing them al the little hot spots in and around the neighborhood they're interested in. Whether you choose to use it electronically, or as a print out, use you zip code map to your advantage to make things as easy as possible on your clients.
