The Quick Launch Bar Benefits
Updated: Jul 29
The FlexMLS Quick Launch bar is a powerful tool. If you are only entering addresses or MLS numbers - you're missing out!
Maximizing Quick Launch Capabilities
The Quick Launch bar is always available next to the FlexMLS logo in the upper left corner of the page. Let’s walk through a couple scenarios for convenient use.
You performed a search, looked at results, but then left the tab and did something else. Now, you want to go back to that search you ran but didn’t save. Enter: Draft Searches. In the Quick Launch bar, you can type “draft” and it will display the 5 most recent, unsaved searches that you ran.
Your client loved the location of a house (123 Main Street), but it’s no longer on the market. You want to search a 2-mile radius around that house for other listings in the area. In Quick Launch, you can search “2 miles from 123 Main Street” in the search bar and get a list of relevant results! Note: Radius searching is limited to whole numbers in the Quick Launch bar.
In addition to searching drafts and radiuses using Quick Launch, you can also search for a contact, MLS number, listing address, saved and recent searches, basic criteria (beds, baths, property type, status), and more!
Even better, you always have the option to open Quick Launch results in a new tab if you’re in the middle of something else. Easy to use for multitasking!
