6 Online Property Search Filters You Could Be Using.

Number of bedrooms, price, location. It’s been done before. What about filtering in a way that’s more out of the box? Here’s a few suggestions that step away from the norm. Add your suggestions below.

Public transport friendly: there’s a lot of people that require parking space in a garage or driveway and it’s covered in filters by many estate agents. What about turning it on its head? Rank properties according to their access to local bus, tube and rail networks.estateagentuk2

Commute time: research suggests that people commuting over 35 minutes are at a higher risk of burnout, cynicism and exhaustion. It’s also proven to convert more hunters than miles radius. Keep commute times under wraps by ranking by minutes not miles using the TravelTime platform.

Travel cost: because it builds up! Many people in commuter towns will have to weigh up the cost getting back into the city. Combining travel and living costs give a more accurate picture of how they new residents will live.

The congestion buster: filter properties by the level of traffic in the area. It means that house hunters wanting to escape the gridlock can do just that. The Department for Transport provides data that can be inserted into property information.

Best of both: keep everyone happy by seeing where’s suitable for multiple points of interest. Perfect to help families keep close to the school whilst living where they’d like to. It means that house hunters could see where the two location results are overlapped and select that way! Speak to iGeolise for more details.

Walkability: companies like Walkonomics give ratings that help residents understand how safe it is to walk in the local area. Filters include road safety, ease of crossing, pavements, hills, crime and how the area looks.
