Tallahassee Real Estate Maps
I use these all the time to get a feel for lot sizes and topography, so I figured this might be some "good to know" information for anybody interested in building a home in Tallahassee in the next few years.
Top Tallahassee Real Estate Map Resource
The top resource for maps of sorts is the TLCGIS website (Tallahassee Leon County Graphical Information Systems). They provide a host of maps and data that can be useful in many ways. Here are some of the real estate maps that I use most often:
- Topographical Map - The natural features map at the TLCGIS website is awesome. It will take you a little time to get proficient, but once you do, it's like having a map of every nook and cranny in Leon County. You can see wetlands and high ground, and if you are thinking about building, you can literally use it to determine where to place the house on your lot.
- Property Appraiser Map - This real estate map shows you boundaries and property lines, and includes links for ownership information and aerial views. I find this very helpful when I'm comparing several different homes in the same neighborhood. The links are great because you can click on a parcel and instantly see who owns the home.
- Other Real Estate Maps - There are a total of 18 map links on the TLCGIS website, so I would encourage you to check it out and see what great features you can discover. If you want to know more about the Tallahassee housing market, a great real estate map is a super starting point.
Real Estate Topographical Map Example
In the Tallahassee real estate map displayed above, the topography suggests that a home would need to be built near the back third of the home site, as the front two-thirds appears to be lower ground and could have water issues. While you would not rely on this map alone to make a purchase decision, it certainly is helpful in eliminating certain types of lots that you do not want to consider.
I strongly recommend prospective land buyers get acquainted with these free maps because they can save you considerable time and effort in selecting the site that you want to buy. As you gain experience using these great tools, you will find information that most likely is not available anywhere else.
