Search Help

Search

  • Start a New Search
    At any time, you want to start a new search and clear all search options back to the 'default' search options, click RESET SEARCH OPTIONS under the REFINE SEARCH buttons - either top or bottom. Default search options are:
    Search Option Default Settings
    Geography All Areas, Entire MLS
    Property Type All Residential
    Listing Status Active Listings only (does not include properties in escrow)
    Sale Type All Sale Types
  • Selecting Search Options
    Quickly review the click actions below to open/close search options, expand/collapse option 'trees', and check/uncheck all or individual search options:
  • Modify/Refine a Search

    To modify the search results, change any options on the right search panel. After changing options, click the green REFINE SEARCH button (top or bottom) to see the revised search results.

  • Geography Options (City, School, Zip, Address)
    You can narrow search results by a range of geography options including City/MLS Area, Zip Code, Street Address, and School Districts. For best results, use only one of these categories at a time: for example, searching for homes in Lake Tahoe and Reno will show resulting listings in Lake Tahoe and listings in Reno. When searching by Address, you can use any part of the street name to find listings that match. For example, "sierra" would produce matches on "Sierra View", "High Sierra" and "Sierra" streets.
  • Property Type Options
    The default property type is all residential. You can choose sub property types for Residential and Residential SOLD (single family, condo, and manufactured). You can only choose one property type at a time so if you wanted to search for a home and vacant land, you would need to do two separate searches to see results. SOLD listings contain less information but do show the date and sale price for the property. SOLD listings are displayed for the last 180 days. Ask your CalNeva Realty agent if you need to find a sold property that sold more than 180 days ago.
  • Status Options
    The default is "All Active Listings" which allows you to primarily see only those properties that are for sale and not "under contract" or "in escrow". You can choose a smaller sample within All Active Listings by opening up the tree so show additional options such as New, Price Reduced, etc. To see an explanation of the status options, click the link "Listing Status Definitions" on the search panel.
  • Sale Type Options
    The default is "All Sale Types". You can choose to narrow or exclude specific sale types by expaning the tree. For example, you can limit your search to ONLY Bank Owned listings or to a combination of Bank Owned and Short Sale listings.
  • Features Options
    We offer a wide range of features to choose from. By default, none are selected. You can select feature options on the main panel (Price Range down to Days on Website) as well as under Property Features and Property Features (Additional). Choosing features within one category will expand listins and show all matches within the category; example: selecting Views - Mountain and City will show homes with either a Mountain or a City View. Choosing features 'across' different categories will restrict listings; example: selecting Views - Mountain and Property Adjoins - BLM will show ONLY those listings that have a Mountain View AND area adjoining BLM land.
  • Searching by Map
    The map search is interactive and very flexible. Afer panning or zooming to an area of interest, you can select listings by either drawing a radius from a center point OR drawing a polygon of your needed shape. After specifying the area, click REFINE SEARCH to see the matching results. Note that the polygon and radius can be modified if needed by clicking "EDIT RADIUS" or "EDIT POLYGON". Map Searches can be saved for Email Alerts by clicking EMAIL ALERT once your criteria is chosen. To return to the standard (right panel) search, click ADVANCED SEARCH at the top of the right side list under SEARCH TOOLS.

Quick Search

  • Home Page
    You can perform a quick search from the home page that can include a price range and minimum bedrooms/bathrooms. Keep in mind that all quick search results will show ACTIVE and PENDING listings. You can eliminate the PENDING LISTINGS by clicking the SHOW ACTIVE LISTINGS ONLY check box above the listings. When entering text in a Quick Search box, the search is broad and will include a broad match of listings. The search is not 'case sensitive', so "Reno" is the same as "reno". For best results, use a full or partial address, MLS Area, MLS Number, or zip code. See the table below for tips and examples:
    Search Text Likely Results
    reno All listings with the term "reno" contained in the city, MLS area, or street address.
    cold springs All listings with the term "cold springs" contained in the city, MLS area, or street address.
    150004246 All listings with the term "15004246" contained in MLS number, zip code, or street number. Likely a single property with that MLS number.
    1500 Magogany A listing at 1500 Mahogany street
    Mahogany All listings with the term "Mahogany" contained in the city, MLS area, or street address.
    89509 Would likely return listings in zip code 89509 but would also include any MLS number or street number containing 89509.
  • Left Navigation
    There is a Quick Search option at the top of the left side navigation on all pages except the home page, advanced search results, and selected pages with no left navigation (like this one!). Use this to quickly find a listing by the search categories. Note: search results will be ACTIVE and PENDING. See the table below for sample ways to use this Quick Search:
    Search Text Likely Results
    reno All listings with the term "reno" contained in the city, MLS area, or street address.
    cold springs All listings with the term "cold springs" contained in the city, MLS area, or street address.

    1500 Magogany A listing at 1500 Mahogany street
    Mahogany All listings with the term "Mahogany" contained in the city, MLS area, or street address.
