The HomeSpotter engineering team has been hard at work to bring you our latest app update - HomeSpotter saved searches!
Only want to see single family homes under $300k in Minneapolis? You can now create custom saved search directly in the HomeSpotter app and access the results at a later time.
How can I create a saved search in the app?
To create a saved search in the app, you'll want to tap on the word filter in the top right hand corner of the map view to update your search criteria. To save a search and view results later in a particular area, type in any city name or zip code in the top filter box. If you're only looking for homes within a specific price range or size, etc, you can also add these filters to your search criteria below. Once you've updated your criteria, tap on "Save Search" to save this filter for the future.
By default, we'll name your search a combination of the filters you've provided, or you can choose to rename your search to something more personal. Tap save and the app will prompt you to a new screen confirming the search has been saved. You can create as many different saved searches with different criteria as you choose, and all will be saved to your HomeSpotter account and can be found in the app menu under the Saved Searches label.
Next, let's navigate to the app menu to find the results. Tap on Saved in the app menu and you'll now see saved searches beneath your saved homes.
Managing and Editing your Saved Searches
Tap on any saved search to view the results in your app. You can also tap on the edit button to show a delete option if you'd like to remove this saved search from your account. Looking at the opposite side of the screen, you will see a "-", which will allow you to delete your saved searches.
Who will have access to this new feature?
The all new HomeSpotter app saved searches features are available for both agents and consumers tied to an agent using the HomeSpotter app.
Consumers using the HomeSpotter app will only have access to see the saved searches they create in their app, and will not have access to see the saved searches that you as an agent might have created about them in your app. You will also not be able to see the saved searches that your client creates in their app at this time, but we're looking at ways to provide you with more information like this in the future.
Consumer (Client) Saved Searches
Consumers have a limited version of HomeSpotter that does not include private agent information that you can see as an agent. Consumers using your branded app can still search for homes and save them to their account, and they'll see the same option "Saved" which will bring them to any individual saved listings or saved searches they've added in their app.
Their saved searches will only include those that they have created in their HomeSpotter app.
Is there anything else I should know about this new feature?
Push notification alerts when new homes match your saved searches are not available in this version, however it's something we're looking into adding in the future along with more insights to what your clients are doing in your branded version of the HomeSpotter app. Stay tuned for more updates soon!
