REALTY EXECUTIVES IDX Tutorial - Lesson 9 - Beds & Baths


Take me to the next lesson

      Now that you have completed a quite a few lessons on the functionality of the LVAR IDX, we are going to take you directly to the Bedroom and Bathroom criteria while using the basic criteria that we have used in prior searches.  We are searching for a residential property in North Bethlehem and Bethlehem Township.

      In the criteria listed below, we are searching for any listing that has up to 4 bedrooms (1, 2, 3, or 4 bedrooms) and up to 2 full baths (1 or 2 full baths) and 1 half bath.  We have not made any entry in total baths.  We then click on "Preview Count".

      Our search results show 116 listings found.  Next, click on "Revise Criteria" to change our search criteria.

      In this case, we will change the "Area" criteria since we really want to keep the Bedroom and Bath criteria as wide as possible.  By changing the "Area" criteria, we will be able to perform more searches with less changes.  We will be able to search Bethlehem Township for results and then change just the "Area" and search North Bethlehem for results.  

      As you proceed through the tutorial, hopefully you will see the many ways to search for exactly the properties that fit you needs.  If you need help with the search, just give me a call or send and email.

      After we have reduced the area to just Bethlehem Township, we still are returning a result that is greater then the allowable number of listings.  Click on "Revise Criteria".

      We know that we are really not interested in any property with less than 4 Bedrooms so we change our Bedroom criteria to "From" of 4 and "Thru" of 4.  We are now only searching for 4 Bedroom/2.5 Bath home in Bethlehem Township.  We click on "Preview Count".

      This search as returned an acceptable number of listings so we can click on "View Results" to see the Summary Display of our search results.

      This completes the portion of the tutorial that covers the basic search criteria of the IDX system.  Our remaining lessons will cover "Property Address" search, "Listing Number" search, "Advanced Data Display", and "Schedule a Showing".  Just click "Take me to next lesson" to continue the tutorial or "I'm ready, take me to the IDX" if you are ready to start searching.
