REALTY EXECUTIVES IDX Tutorial - Lesson 8 - Structure Size


Take me to the next lesson

      The subject of this lesson will be the "Structure" criteria.  This will be very similiar to the lesson "Year Built".  In this lesson we are starting the search for a residential property using the "Area" criteria.  We are again searching across municipalities by searching North Bethlehem and Bethlehem Township.  After we have selected the required criteria to get results we will click on "Preview Count" to see how many listings are available.

      The "Search Results" show that we have well exceeded the maximum listing counts with a total of 133 listing.  We click on "Revise Criteria" to take us back to the "Property Search" screen.

      In this search, we have decided that the size of the home is the an important criteria.  We only want to look at properties that are under 2000 square feet of living space.  In "Structure" cirteria, we enter 2000 in the "Thru" criteria.  By leaving the "From" open the range will be every property up to and including 2000 square feet.  One important note - this will not show properties where the listing agent did not enter square footage.  To include properties without a square footage entry you must check "Include 0 SqFt". This criteria functions similiar to the "Price" and "Year Built" criteria.  It allows you to be very specific with the "Structure" allowing you to enter starting and ending size to provide an extremely specific search results.

      Click on "Preview Count" to see exactly how many properties are available with a "Structure" less than 2000 square feet.

      We have exceeded the allowable results page with 91 listings found.  We click on "Revise Criteria" and return to the "Property Search" page.

      We now change our "Structure" criteria to "From" of 1500 to "Thru" of 2000.  Click on the "Preview Count".

      Our "Search Results" now show 39 listings.  The "Structure" criteria can be an extremely effect tool in defining your own individual property search.  Remember, many of the criteria may be combined to narrow your search results. As we mentioned in our last lesson, another option is to sign up for my eSearch Home Search and allow my eSearch to do the work for you 24/7.   

      If you are having any problems, just remember that I am just a phone call or email away.  Our next lesson will cover the "Bedroom and Baths" search criteria.
