↑Finding a Property
Enter a city, address, ZIP code or the MLS number in the Search Bar.
The Search bar uses "starts with" technology, so enter as much of address as you know.
For example, entering 1123 will find all properties for sale that have that number,
(1123 Main, 1123 Grand, 1123 Maple, etc.) while entering "1123 Robert" will find 1123 Roberts
and 1123 Robertson. When using city names, try to be complete; spelling matters but
capitalization doesn't. By the way, if you have already viewed a property or if you enter its
MLS number, the property will be displayed immediately -- No click required!
If you are using a phone or tablet with location services (GPS), you can find the properties for sale
nearest you. Use the "Near Me" button on the homepage or from any other page, place your cursor
in the Search Bar and a menu appears with the "Search near me..." option. With just a click,
the properties for sale nearest your location will display.
Want to fine tune your search? From the homepage click the "Advanced" button or from any other page,
click the little lip directly under the Search Bar. You'll find more search criteria as well as
options for sorting results, changing the number of properties shown per page, and you can even save
your criteria for your next visit.
