I’m looking for a new home and I’m not sure if the sun exposure across the year is as promised by the realtor.

Intuitively view the sun path over the property in 3D. Go to your location on the map and use the time or date slider to get accurate insights into the sun exposure of the listing.

I’m planning to have a garden and I want to find the best spot for my pool and awnings.

Plan your home extensions with the sun. Sunlight is crucial for the prospering of your green darlings, as is shade for a cool summer barbecue.

It gets quite dark where I live and I want my new home to be as bright as possible in winter.
