Hand-Drawn Housing Search
Instead of relying on macro search criteria like zip codes and having to browse thousands of listings, users can now create their own local search experience (by literally drawing it). This Hand-Drawn Housing Search allows you to exactly define your search boundaries and see only properties that fall within your desired area.
Creating Your Own Search Parameters
Creating your own search areas is easy. Just click on the "lasso" icon to switch your mouse to a drawing tool:
Then, click on the map and draw a line around the area that you would like to be included in your search. You can create as many areas as you would like and only the homes that fall within those areas will be shown.
Share Your Lasso
One of the great benefits of the lasso search is being able to share your customized search with your friends and family. Sharing is simple. Either send the URL directly or click on "share" in the lasso. Clicking "share" will generate a short URL that's easy to send via email and all social media channels.
Ways to Use the Lasso Search
- Living Near Public Transportation
- Living In a Particular Neighborhood (or zip code, or school zone, or county)
- Living Near Work or School (or any other point of interest)
