Feature Update: Omnibox Search for myRealPage IDX
We’re happy to announce that we are rolling out the new and improved myRealPage IDX Omnibox search!
Our new “Omnibox” search function interprets user text input by offering a list of suggestions. It’s smart and can understand if you’re trying to type an address or city.
In the past, we’ve created several different types of search tools with different interfaces and we’re now combining the best of them all to deliver a more consistent experience.
Enough of the tech jargon! Let’s get into how users — and ultimately, you as a REALTOR® — can benefit from this new way of searching.
A user can now search by:
- Listing Area
- Listing Sub-Area
- Zip Codes or Postal Codes
- MLS® Numbers
- Communities, Neighbourhood Names, Zone, County… you name it!
- Listing addresses (excluding unit numbers)
For example, users can now search for all listings in a certain building simply by typing its street address. You can even run a search for buildings that are on the same street, and have them all appear in one search results page. With the Omnibox search, users can even refine their searches further with criteria such as “Downtown” or “East Side” for their searches.
In select markets where sold listings are available, you can also search for solds. This is useful if you wish to compare your current property search with, for example, properties that were sold over the last three months in the same area.
