Start a New Search
You can enter any basic search criteria to begin a new search using the Quick Launch Bar. Remember, the Quick Launch Bar is only intended as a shortcut to begin a new search. You can manage any additional filters you require after running the search for results.
Search by Address
To begin a new search by address, type the street number, the street name (no prefix or suffix), and the location in the Quick Launch Bar (e.g., “136 Lewis Ventura”). Your results will provide ALL listings with that address, sorted by most recent. You will see the status of each listing in parentheses.
Search by MLS Number (Listing ID)
To begin a new search by MLS Number (Listing ID), type the exact MLS number (with hyphens if applicable) in the Quick Launch Bar, e.g., “V1-8497.”
Search by Location
To begin a new search by location, type the name of the location in the Quick Launch Bar.
Note: Commas are required when using multiples of the same filter. For example, to search multiple locations (such as Venture, Mendocino, and Pasadena) in the location filter, you would type “Ventura, Mendocino, Pasadena.”
Search by Status
To add or begin a new search by status, type the status in the Quick Launch Bar, e.g. “Ventura Active.”
Note: When you are applying different types of filters, commas are not required.
Search by Price
To add or begin a new search by price, type the dollar symbol ($) followed by the price in the Quick Launch Bar, e.g., “Ventura Active $950k+.”
Note: You can use abbreviations to simplify the search, such as the letter “K” for thousands or the letter “M” for millions. Also, use the plus symbol (+) for “greater than” or the minus symbol (-) for “less than.”
Search by Bedrooms and Bathrooms
To add or begin a search by number of bedrooms and bathrooms, type “# Beds” and/or “# Baths” in the Quick Launch Bar, e.g., “Ventura Active $950k+ 3-4 beds 2+ baths.”
Note: Use the hyphen (-) between two values for range searching. Otherwise, Flexmls will read it as “minus/less than.”
