Launching the New Landgrid Free - A Simplified Parcel Viewer

By Sahana Murthy on June 10, 2019

We heard you!

We get asked a bunch of things from our loyal customers and prospects. We get asked to add certain attributes to our data or we have had users asking for a simplified parcel viewer. Well, that’s what we did.

Our team has been working hard this past month to add more value to our solutions and we are excited to announce the launch of the New Landgrid Free subscription.

New Landgrid Free - Simplified Parcel Viewer

We have always had a very loaded free subscription which we often found to be overwhelming for many of our users who would have preferred a simpler viewer to look up parcels, uninterrupted for their many personal goals.

So that’s essentially what the new Landgrid Free would be able to provide to our customers moving forward.

This isn’t your average sandbox - with this account you can surf the site uninterrupted, look up parcels that you are interested in and color code the map to get deeper insights into your location.

With your free account, you can do a bunch of things to get started with:

- Uninterrupted nationwide parcel viewer - Look up parcels all over and get deeper insights into your neighborhood.

- Draw Focus Area - Draw a custom boundary on the map by drawing a focus area.

- Filter Maps - Drill down further by filtering the parcels by various attributes. With your free, you will not be able to save your filters.

- Style Maps - Color code the parcel map to highlight key attributes that you are interested in. With your free account, you can create up to 2 styling rules.

- Bookmark Parcels - Bookmark upto 10 parcels that you find interesting to come back to at a later time.

Report: new data gives insight into trends on Cleveland's east side

By Nick Downer on April 1, 2019



In summer 2018 Loveland partnered once more with longtime allies Western Reserve Land Conservancy to re-survey more than 78,000 parcels on Cleveland’s east side. Using a blended staff from Loveland, WRLC and local Cleveland surveyors, the survey data was gathered in just ten weeks, with a goal of generating data that could be compared to an earlier citywide survey conducted in 2015.

Cleveland's east side was hit hard by the foreclosure crisis, and many neighborhoods continue to struggle with blight and vacancy. Among other things, the report sheds valuable light on the effectiveness of demolition funding to address vacant and dilapidated housing. Thousands of vacant houses have been demolished, leading to an overall decrease in vacant structures (from 16% in 2015 to 12% in 2018) and a corresponding increase in occupancy for those structures that remain. It also provides interesting context when considered alongside data showing that median home sales value in these neighborhoods have increased - but remain far from pre-housing crisis levels.
