Listing Search Fields

For a quick tutorial on how to customize search fields, watch the following video.

Customize Search Fields

The Listing Search Fields view enables you to specify which search filter controls to include in the Find a Home search tool of your consumer website. The Listing Search Fields settings do not affect the controls you can use while logged into the Market Leader Admin user interface.

(warning) If you are a  Business Suite  user, work with your broker or site administrator to edit search fields.

To Specify Listing Search Fields

This procedure assumes you are already logged into the Market Leader Adminuser interface.

  1. In the navigation list, click Admin.
  2. On the Website tab, click Listing Search Fields.
  3. Use the checkboxes to specify which fields to show on your website.
  4. Click the Save button.

The Market Leader system might offer search fields that are not supported by your MLS. If you are not familiar with what data your MLS provides and how they organize listing types, review your changes by trial and error. Apply changes and then review your website. Try using the search fields to verify that they work as expected.

For example, your MLS might not provide Waterfront information. If you added this search field to your website, it might cause confusion for your website visitors. Some MLS systems treat rentals as a property type while other MLS systems treat rentals as a listing type. If you are not sure how your MLS treats rentals, you should try different settings and make sure your website is working properly.
