Text Search Guide


Fill in the blank: "I want a property with _______"

If your search isn't limited to a small area on the map, you can be confronted with thousands (or even tens of thousands!) of properties to choose from. Text search helps you get right to the properties you want.

How Does It Work?

Text search allows you to search through both agent comments and every other piece of information Estately has about a property. To start:

  1. Type in the word(s) you want limit your search to (like waterfront or fixer, owner financing).
  2. To avoid certain properties, put a minus sign in front of the word (like -townhouse or -carpets).
  3. When you stop typing, Estately updates your search to include only properties that include those words.
  4. Browse properties that match your search.
