The geographical areas search option actively enhances your kvCORE website with the ability to pull information based on the listings' geolocation as added by the listing agent instead of MLS areas.

The tool narrows down the search results by using each listings' latitude and longitude to provide a more exact picture of the listings available for the area being searched.

If you have the Web & IDX setting enabled in your kvCORE account, all search alerts that you set up within the app and any listing searches you perform under the Listings tab in the app will automatically narrow the results down to listings that match the latitude and longitude of the area searched.

If you do not have the setting enabled, but would like to toggle on the geographical areas option for individual searches you can easily do so within the kvCORE mobile app.
