How about having the small home details popup come up when the cursor just hovers over a marker. Now you have to click, then click outside it to turn it off, then click on another one.

Thanks for the feedback. We had originally designed the map to work like you describe, but found that when there were clusters of many homes for sale the automatic pop-up would be distracting because homes would "pop up" even when you didn't want to see the detailed information. We will do some more experimenting with it, however.

That's how Movato works and I think it's easier to navigate.
