Default Search - What is it?
A Default Search is a set of search parameters that load within a search automatically. A Default Search can be set within each property class: Residential, Land-Lot-Farm, Commercial, Multi-family and Rental.
Where is it Found?
The RealTracs Default Search has the Active, Coming Soon/Hold, and Under Contract- Showing statuses selected by default. To modify this Default Search, one would need to create a saved search and navigate to the Saved Searches section of the common criteria section in order to set it as a default.

2. Next, think about the criteria you would always like selected when you get to that search page. If Active and Under Contract - Showing is something you always check, select those. If you specialize in a certain County, City or Zip Code, fill that in as well. You can also add a mapped area and Additional Criteria to a default search if desired. Reference the Help Pages for Custom Saved Search for more information on how to do this. Once you have everything selected you need in your default search, click the Save button above and name this search (fig. 2).
