Searching by Place

Each week we will be featuring a new tip to help you take full advantage of the tools Homekeys has to offer. This week's tip is "Searching by Place." If you have any suggestions about tips you'd like to see, feel free to Contact Us.

If you want to move close to a particular venue you can find listings nearby using our built in Find Places search. Above the left sidebar are three tabs. Click the one on the right that says Find Places. If you need help at anytime, there are instructions and tips just below the search area. Type in the place that you want to live near and then click Search.

The system will return the first eight search results. If you click Map Results, the map will zoom in as close as it can while still keeping the search results on the page. Select any place from the list to find it on the map.

Once you’ve located the place you are trying to live near, you can zoom into the surrounding area or, if you don’t have a preference, you can leave the map as it is. Click the Search Listings tab to filter the listing results. If you click Map Search the system will populate the map and thumbnail list with listings that meet your search criteria, while still displaying the locations of the “Place(s)” you originally searched for. Until you click the <Clear Search> button under the Find Places tab the system will continue to locate your specified point or points of interest with every map change.

You can also use the Search Map Area(s) tool, located in the top right corner of the map, to help you find listings in the neighborhoods surrounding the hospitals. For more on how to use the Search Map Area(s) tool see the video How to Search Using the Map.

Searching by Place could be used by older couples who want to live close to a hospital, families and college students who want to live close to a certain school, or people looking to move closer to where they work or go to church.
