Advanced search tools for Madison home buyersGreat news for anyone searching for Madison area homes and condos online! Due to popular demand we've just added four new search criteria to our advanced search screens. The new search options, which apply to any type of search be it City, Subdivision, School Waterfront, or Zip Code are...drumroll, please...Basement, New Construction, REO/Foreclosure, and Short Sale. Now you can set up searches that will narrow down your results even further by utilizing these additional criteria.

To get started, simplly choose one of the advanced search options from the Listings menu located on the home page (or click the big button marked Advanced Search). Select the city, subdivision, etc that you're interested in, type of property (home or condo), number of bedrooms, etc. Then add one (or more) of the new search parameters to your search criteria. For example, if you only want to consider homes that are less than four years old, tick the "New Construction" box before running your search. Similarly, if you only want to consider homes with some type of basement (be it a full basement, walk-out basement, partial basement, etc) then be sure to tick the box marked "Basement'. If you're more focused on bank-owned (a.k.a. "REO") properties, foreclosed properties, and/or properties being marketed as short sales, just tick the "REO/Foreclosure" and/or "Short Sale" boxes. If you like, you can combine these new criteria. For example, if you only want to see homes marketed as short sales that are less than four years old and which have some type of basement, select the box for all three criteria. And don't forget to save and name your search so that you get notified by email whenever a property goes on the market that matches your criteria. Just tick the box marked "Save Search", type in a name (a box will appear for that), and presto! You can modify your search parameters anytime by logging into your Control Panel.

These are some great options, we try to be innovative in our search criteria as well. Feel free to poke around on my site and critique it for me. It has only been up about a month, some well-thought constructive criticism is always welcome as far as I am concerned!

Nice additions. For some people minimal is better as they don't know your area. However, for others, more refining is excellent as they want to get as specific in terms of search criteria as they can.
