Manual Mode

1. Search for your desired location in the "Enter Address, Zip Code, or City" field and press Enter.

2. In Step 1 of the sidebar that appears, select Vacancy.

3. If you are in Manual Mode, the next step is Step 2 of the sidebar, and you will select the Data Type you want to view. For this tutorial, let's click Latest Data.

4. You can filter by the Type of Vacancy and Year you want to view. Let's select Renter and Current Data to see how current tenant turnover is performing in this market.

5. You can view the Data Boundary by Zip Code or City By Zip Code. Let's leave it set to view City By Zip Code and press Generate Map.

6. In Step 3 of the sidebar, the average renter vacancy in this market is displayed in green or red depending on how good or bad the vacancy rate is.

7. On a red to green scale, the map is colored so you can easily find the areas with the lowest vacancy rates (in green). Hover your mouse over the map and see their percentages.

Tip! Avoid areas in red with high vacancy rates so you will have less tenant turnover!

8. Add the map to your layers so you can stack this data and hide/unhide it.

9. That's it! You know how to use Vacancy Data! You can now click on "New Search" to continue your market research.
