General Search Tips

  • All fields are optional.  The more options you choose the narrower you search will be.
     

  • If searching for land, do not fill in fields that do not pertain to land, such as year built, square footage, or style.
     

  • If you are having a problem, or if you think the there make be a programming mistake, please contact Robert Young.

 

Street

   Type in the street name, but not the house number.  (i.e. Burton or Burton St SE)

MLS#

   Type in the 6 digit MLS# starting with the letter "g".  (i.e. G123456)

Price

   Type in the exact list price.  (i.e. 119900)


 

Property Type

   Select one or more of the following

  •      Homes: For single family residential
  •      Condos: For single family condominiums
  •      Multi-Unit: For two or more family income properties
  •      Land: For Vacant Land
  •    Tip: Do not use non applicable fields when searching for land (i.e. ranch)

 

Location

   Select one or more locations

  • Tip: Remember that you can also use school district and/or zip codes to refine the location of your search.  However, if the items you choose do not overlap, your search will not return any search results.  For instance, you can not choose Grand Rapids City for location while choosing Rockford for Schools (they do not overlap).  Although you could choose Ada for location and Forest Hills for Schools as they do overlap.  This is a good way to select a more specific area within an area.



Bedroom Range

   Select a minimum and maximum number of bedrooms that would be acceptable
 

Bathroom Minimum

   Select the minimum amount of bathrooms that would be acceptable



Price Range

   Select an acceptable price range



Minimum Square Footage

   Select the minimum amount of above grade square footage that would be acceptable



School District

   Select one or more acceptable school districts

  • Tip: Remember that you can also use location and/or zip codes to refine the location of your search.  However, if the items you choose do not overlap, your search will not return any results.  For instance, you can not choose Rockford for schools, Grand Rapids for city, and a Wayland zip code (they do not overlap).  Although you could choose Ada for location and Forest Hills for Schools as they do overlap.  This is a good way to select a more specific area within an area.

 



Age of Home

  • Select all acceptable age ranges


Style

  • Ranch: Is a single above ground level home (and possibly a basement).
     
  • 1.5 Story: Is a home with a full above ground level and an additional above ground    partial level (and possibly a basement).  Typically one staircase connects both above ground levels.
     
  • 2 Story: Is a home with two full above ground levels (and possibly a basement).  Typically one staircase connects both above ground levels.
     
  • Bi-Level: Is a two level home consisting of an upper level and basement, where the basement level is only partially underground.  Bi-Levels typically have daylight and/or walkout basements.  Often when entering a Bi-Level from the front door, you have to walk up or down a set of stairs to get to the two different levels.
     
  • Multi-Level: Is similar to a Bi-Level, but has three or more levels instead of only two.  Often there are several different sets of shorter staircases to bring you to the different levels.
