AUTOPROP is a great tool to firstly isolate a specific zone in a municipality, then select properties within that zone. You can also load data on the properties so you can reference specific lot sizes or assessment values.
In Vancouver this is made very easy by the fact that you can load the width and depth of the lot (for square lots). 

Isolate the zoned properties 

  1. Navigate to the municipality you want to search in

  2. Hit the Zone Search button at the bottom left of the map. 

  3. Choose the municipality and zone you wish to isolate 

  4. Choose a bright colour that will stand out easily on the map (pink, yellow and green work well). 

  5. Click Add

You can then use the selection tools beside the address locator to select the properties within your desired zone. 

  1. Select properties within the isolated color for a specific database. 

  2. If a strata selector pops up you can just click cancel for an un-stratified database of single PID parcels (these are easier to assemble as they'll have no strata board and single or few owners). 

Once you've selected your properties you can view them and load data by clicking the view properties button in the bottom left corner then the "Load Data" button. 

You can then select the data you want to load on all the properties at once. I would suggest "Lot Size, Sales History, Year Constructed and the Assessment Values". Once it's all loaded, you can then click the Action Menu and "Export to Excel" --> then "GO". 

Your results will be exported to an excel spreadsheet where you can filter them and find specific properties for a client when asked.
