Zillow's new tool powers home searches in up to five areas at once, letting shoppers move as fast as the market
Company to add new filters and features, including the ability for users to hide homes they've already considered
SEATTLE, July 21, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Zillow today announced a new app feature that lets home shoppers and renters search more quickly for properties across different neighborhoods, ZIP codes, cities, counties, states and more — pulling them all together into a single list. It's one of several new and upcoming search features empowering Zillow users to move faster and shop with confidence for exactly the types of homes they want in the exact locations they'd like to live.
Today's real estate market is one of the most competitive ever, with inventory near record lows and homes still selling at a pace much faster than historical norms. Affordability is increasingly becoming a challenge as interest rates and prices continue to rise. To increase options, many shoppers are expanding their house hunt farther afield, to more-distant neighborhoods, cities and even states.
"In today's fast-paced market, home shoppers need to see as many options as possible with the fewest clicks," said Jenny Arden, Zillow chief design officer. "This new Zillow feature allows users to refine their search and gives them confidence that all their options are in front of them. Whether they're looking for apartments in only the hippest neighborhoods of Austin, Nashville or Raleigh, or focused on three-bedroom homes in a short list of Los Angeles suburbs, multi-location search will save home seekers time."
How it works
Now available on the Zillow app, the multi-location search feature makes the home shopping exerience faster, simpler and easier by allowing shoppers to find available homes in up to five different areas at once; it also gives users the option to easily sift through the listings on the map or all in the same results feed. In addition, users can save their multi-location searches and opt to receive email and push notifications with results and recommendations.
Zillow's new and upcoming search features
The multi-location search feature is another step toward Zillow's all-in-one platform, through which users can search, buy, sell, finance and rent properties. Zillow continues to develop new features and tools to help people more easily search for and get into the home of their dreams.
These upcoming and recently launched Zillow features help house shoppers to move faster during their search and zero in on only those homes that fit their needs:
"Zillow designers and engineers are working every day to create new tools that help save our customers time and effort, and make shopping for a home on Zillow faster and easier," Arden said.
