Keyword Search

Adding keywords to your searches allows you to quickly find or eliminate listings from your search results based on keywords that a listing agent may have used to describe a property in the Public Remarks or Private Remarks fields.

Keyword Inclusion

Use the wildcard symbol (*) to search for keywords that a listing agent may have used in the Public Remarks or Agent Remarks field to describe a property. For example, to search for listings that contain the word TLC, type *TLC* in the Public Remarks or Private Remarks fields.
Note: To search for multiple keywords, separate each keyword with commas (,). For example, to include the keyword fixer and exclude the keyword short sale, type *fixer*, !*short sale* in the Public Remarks or Private Remarks fields. The search results will return all listings that contain “fixer” but do not contain “short sale”. 

Keyword Exclusion

Use an exclamation mark (!) before a keyword to exclude listings that contain specific keywords that a listing agent may have used in the Public Remarks or Private Remarks field to describe a property. For example, to exclude listings with the words “short sale”, type !*short sale* in the Public Remarks or Private Remarks fields.
Note: To search for multiple keywords, separate each keyword with commas (,). For example, to include the keyword fixer and exclude the keyword short sale, type *fixer*, !*short sale* in the Public Remarks or Private Remarks fields. The search results will return all listings that contain fixer but do not contain the short sale.
