The top menu has 5 search pages "ALL PROPERTIES", "RESIDENTIAL", "VACANT LAND" AND "ADULT COMMUNITY". Choose the search
page that matches the criteria of home your searching for. For example if your interested in retirement, gated or adult
communities your would choose the "ADULT COMMUNITY"
Set Your Price Range
Price range should be your first consideration. A smart buyer should already have a pre approved mortgage or letter
stating how much a mortgage company will approve to purchase property. This will allow you to make a more realistic and
focused search only on homes you can afford.
Choose A City Location
City Location should be your second consideration. Most buyers has a good idea of the city and area they want to live. The
choices under "Select a City" Lists Cities, Townships and towns and boroughs within a city. To the right of General Search
Criteria is a section that lists all Adult Communities within the city selected with the number of homes found between brackets.
Limit The Number Of Properties Found
Since it would be a waste of your valuable time to look through homes you would not be considering. It is a good idea to
eliminate the properties to only ones you would be interested in.
Once you set your location and price range you will see the number of properties found. You may see several thousand or
several hundred properties found. Not all of these properties meet your exact criteria. You can further reduce the search
results by setting Min and max ranges of bedrooms and bathrooms, Min year built and Max square footage of living area.
