Homesnap Update Worthy of a Read

Homesnap has announced a new feature that further improves the property search experience for agents and consumers in your market: Multi-Area Search!

You can now search multiple areas at once in Homesnap rather than having to jump back and forth between different searches. Additionally, Multi-Area Search is supported by our recently released Saved Search Alerts to allow users to receive alerts for multiple areas. The feature is available nationwide on all platforms (Android, iOS, desktop).

How does it work?

Step 1: Pick your first search area.

Step 2: Tap into the search bar at the top of the screen where it says, "add another area" and add your second (or third, or fourth, or fifth!) search area. Note: the "+1" in the bubble at the top of the screen indicates how many areas are already selected for your search.

Once you have selected your additional area(s), the map will zoom out to encompass the area's you've selected.
