Other Search Types - What Are They?

The Other Search Types found in realtracs.net include an MLS Number Search, Cross-Class Search, and an Archive Search. The information gathered from performing any of these Searches can be viewed in a variety of different formats, used for statistical analysis, or shared with clients. The MLS Number and Archive Searches are available for all property classes (Residential, Land-Lot-Farm, Multi-Family, Commercial, and Rental), and the Cross Class Search will search in any or all of the property classes selected.


Where are They Found?

Select a particular Search type by moving your mouse pointer over Property Search on the Navigation Menu at the top of the screen, and then selecting which property search type is desired.

2. After selecting the MLS #, Cross-Class, or Archive search, a variety of options will display that pertain to the type of search being selected.

  • MLS# Search - When this search is selected, the search panel will only accept the entry of an MLS number. Multiple MLS numbers be searched for by simple separating each with a comma, space, and/or semicolon. The MLS # search searches across all property classes and statuses.
  • Cross Class - The Cross Class Search provides a way to enter specified search criteria and locate all properties, regardless of property class (Residential, Land-Lot-Farm, etc.) that meet the search selections. Because all search fields must be common to all property classes, those provided are restricted to the ones available to all property classes. This means that fewer search fields are available for use (fig. 2). Just like a normal property search, the selection of a Status is required

Once the desired criteria is entered, and the search is executed, results will appear on the map panel. Click the display option tabs at the top for a List, Thumbnail, or Full view. By selecting the list view, users can view a detailed history of Status and Price changes (fig. 3).
