How to: Find the right property for you
When you’re looking for properties online, how do you do it?
If you receive your search results in a list, then you’re not alone. Around 95% of those looking to buy on realestate.com.au do the same.* But there’s another way to view properties on realestate.com.au – on a map.
Searching for properties on a map view allows you to index your property results around the amenities that are important to you, including schools, transport and shopping centres.
It means you don’t have to limit your property search to a particular suburb or set of suburbs.
You can search for properties that are available in any map bounds. This could be a particular council area, neighbourhood, street or a certain number of kilometres from your workplace.
Because it’s such an important tool for property seekers, realestate.com.au have made the map search even easier to use.
The map is now available in full screen view, so you can get more listings (viewed as pins on the map) in your viewport.
If you’re a keen investor, or just a curious property geek, the map search for sold properties now allows you to filter your results by date range.
This makes the process a lot more useful, as you can now select any map bounds and find the properties that have sold there in the last week, month or extended time period.
It’s a unique feature to provide you with a snapshot of any market on the grid at any given time.
