The only issue I have with this method (I use it as well) is that not all listings always show up! Sometimes I am looking in an area and there are listings that I know of and they are not showing up until I zoom in on that particular place, below street level zoom. I understand they list certain ones higher th an others based on their algorithm but it does a disservice to not show all the listings in an area on the map view.
Fine if there are 20 listings in the same apartment building or something there will be a pile of 20 pins and only one can be on top I understand. That would require further zooming, understandably.
I just wish they wouldn’t exclude certain listings in map view.
