In this article, we will give you a step by step tutorial on how to create custom searches using your AgentFire IDX.
In order to create a custom search, make sure that you're logged into your site's backend:
Step 1: Go to your site's /properties/ page.
a. You can search by county, city, address, or zip code on the main bar.
b. On the filter section you can filter your listings search by Sale, Rent or Sold:
c. Search by price range (using the bar or manually inputting the values on the boxes), by number of bedrooms and bathrooms and/or searching a specific keyword found in the listings' description box as shown below:
d. You can also filter your search by listing type, property type, and listing status (note: as shown below you can select a single type or status or multiple)
e. Lastly, you can filter by any necessary property details such as square feet, lot size, year built or days on the market as well as only reflecting open houses listings:
Once your search filters are ready click on Apply.
If you only selected a county, city, address or zip code click on the search button in the search bar:
Additionally you can also sort your search results by Newest, Lowest or Highest price range.
Step 2: When saving your search, you can also toggle on Automatically Create a Search Page:
This will create a search page that is linked to the search that you just made.
For more information on our Search Pages tool please visit this article.
Step 3: Viewing your custom search and Search Page (if created).
a. To view your custom searches, on your Dashboard, go the IDX section and click on Saved Searched:
b. Saved searches will be ordered by the most recent ones first.
c. On the left you have the search page Id which can be used to populate listings on our templates, which will be discussed on another article.
d. You can also delete a search by clicking on the gray Delete button on the far left.
Note: You can open up the search page by clicking on the blue box icon next to the search's name. If you make changes on that search, it will not "update" the search, but rather you'll end up creating a new search.
And that's it, that's how you create a custom search! If you have any more questions about this, you're welcome to contact our Support staff by sending an email to email@example.com.
