The Dreams Featured in a New Development Map Illustration

Real estate developers aren’t just selling properties. They are selling dreams. The dreams which can be featured in a development illustrated map.

A young professional buying her first home wants more than just a xeroxed page of features. She wants a shiny brochure showing the features of the development.

A father moving his family into a new neighborhood wants to not just hear about the excellent parks and walking trails of the new suburb – he wants to see them.

A couple buying their first home wants to see just how far their money will stretch. Can they afford the two-story? Or perhaps the house with the large back yard they have been dreaming off?

A map illustration makes this possible

A neighborhood is about more than just plopping houses beside each other. Instead, it’s about winding streets and open green spaces. Additionally, it’s about the size of the backyards. It’s about the playgrounds for the children. How close are the neighborhood schools? Also, what sort of hike and bike trails are there to explore?

Real-estate map illustration shows all of this and more.

First, to create a real-estate map illustration, the artist studies the critical features of the area. Then, she examines building heights and the size of the green spaces. Additionally, she takes those measurements and dimensions. Eventually, she creates an illustration that shows these key features. But, she shows them with an illustrated perspective.


That means the areas that the developer wants to highlight are easily showcased. The less exciting areas are recessed. For example, a standard sidewalk or a place for drainage isn’t featured. New homeowners can see what they are looking for. Also, they can see it about everything else.


With a new development map illustration, new home buyers can see exactly what they want to see. The dream they are hoping to buy.
