Homesnap New Search Feature Jan2021


Homesnap is excited to announce a new feature that will further improve the property search experience for agents and consumers in your market: Multi-Area Search!

You can now search multiple areas at once in Homesnap, rather than having to jump back and forth between different searches. Saved Search Alerts also support Multi-Area Search, allowing users to receive alerts for multiple areas at once. This feature is available nationwide on all platforms (Android, iOS, desktop).

 

How does it work?

 

Step 1: Pick your first search area. (In this example, we’re searching in Riverside.)

 

 

Step 2: Tap in the search bar at the top of the screen where it says, “Add another area.” Add your second (or third, or fourth, or fifth!) search area. (In this example, we’re adding Moreno Valley.)

Note: the “+1” in the bubble at the top of the screen indicating how many areas are already selected for your search.

 

 

Once you have selected your additional area, the map will zoom out to encompass the areas you’ve selected.

 

 

FAQs:

How many areas can I search at once?

Up to 5 areas at a time.

 

What types of searches are supported by multi-area searches?

Schools, Neighborhoods, City, Town, Zip Code, and Street Name.

 

What types of searches are not supported by multi-area search?

Specific addresses, self-drawn polygons, areas that are 60+ miles apart.

 

What happens to my multi-area search if I move the map?

If you move the map far enough that none of your current search areas are within the map view, the app automatically clears the search.
