REALTY EXECUTIVES IDX Tutorial - Lesson 1 - Property Type


Take me to the next lesson

      The first question that you need to answer when you are starting your search is what type of property you want.  The Property Type and Subtype are the subject of this lesson.  The property types available are Residential, Residential Lots, Residential Rental, Commercial, Commercial Land, Commercial Lease, Investment Property, and Farm.  

      When you start your search of the database you will need to identify a Property Type and you will probably also want to identify a Property Subtype.  Any time that you search by Property Type, the IDX also requires that you include at least one of the following criteria:

Area

Municipality

Price

      In order to select a Property Subtype, you only need to check one Property Type and it will reveal the Property Subtypes for that particular Property Type.  The balance of this lesson will cover each Property Type and the related Subtypes. 

Residential

      This graphic shows the Subtypes available when you select the Residential Property type.  This property type allows you to search for residential properties that are currently available for sale in the LVAR IDX.  In order to obtain the best results from your IDX search, it is best to select the Property Subtypes that reflect your desired property. 

Residential Lot

      This graphic shows the Residential Lot Property Type which does not have any Property Subtypes.  This property type allows you to search for residential lots that are currently available for sale in the LVAR IDX.  

Residential Rental

      Residential Rental Property Type has the same Subtypes as the Residential.  This property type allows you to search the IDX database for Residential Rentals.  If you a looking to rent and not purchase, this is the place to be.  If you are looking to purchase residential rental property for investment you should search Residential or Investment Property. 

Commercial

      This graphic show the Subtypes available when you select the Commercial Property type.  This property type allows you to search for commercial properties that are currently available for sale in the LVAR IDX.  In order to obtain the best results from your IDX search, it is best to select the Property Subtypes that reflect your desired property. 

Commercial Land

      This graphic shows the Commercial Land Property Type which does not have any Property Subtypes.  This property type allows you to search for commercial land that is currently available for sale in the LVAR IDX.  

Commercial Lease

      Commercial Lease Property Type has the same Subtypes as the Commercial.  This property type allows you to search the IDX database for commercial properties available for lease.  If you a looking to rent commercial space, this is the place to be.

Investment Property

      This graphic shows the Subtypes available when you select Investment Property.  This property type allows you to search for investment properties of various types that are currently available for sale in the LVAR IDX.  In order to obtain the best results from your IDX search, it is best to select the Property Subtypes that reflect your desired property. 

Farm

      This graphic shows the Subtypes available when you select Farm.  This property type allows you to search for farms of various types that are currently available for sale in the LVAR IDX.  In order to obtain the best results from your IDX search, it is best to select the Property Subtypes that reflect your desired property. 

Multiple Property Types

      In this graphic, I am illustrating what occurs when you select more than one property type.  The system will allow you to select multiple property types, however, when you select multiple property types it cannot show the subtypes available with each property type.  An additional limitation of this type of search is the inability of utilizing the additional criteria screens.  We will be covering the additional criteria screens in a later lesson.

      After you have selected the property type that you are going to search, you must select at least one additional criteria for your search in order to obtain any results.  The additional criteria available from the required list are:  Area or Municipality or Price.  The next 3 lessons will  explain each of these criteria.
