New search option for companies' real estate websites

New Property Address Search Options

We've released a new feature to the Delta Media Group real estate website platform for companies today. The new feature gives companies more control over how the property search works when dealing with address searches.

So what is the new option?

The screen shot below shows the three new options available for handling property address searches. The three options are:

  1. Search Method A - If a user types in '123 Main St' the system will search for any address that contains '123' and 'Main' and 'St' anywhere in it's address.
  2. Search Method B - If a user types in '123 Main St' the system will search for any address that contains '123 Main St' in it's address.
  3. Search Method A + B - If a user types in '123 Main St' the system will search for any address that contains '123' and 'Main' and 'St' or '123 Main St' anywhere in it's address.

What does this new option do for me?

We've found that depending on where you're located in the country your users may want the search to behave differently. We've run across companies that want the address to just search on an exact match and others that want to find all the matches possible. Basically this puts you in more control over how your search works in your local market.

What is the default setting?

Delta's default setting for companies is Search Method A.

Where do I change this setting if I want to?

You're able to change this setting from the Administrative side of the DeltaNet. It's located under the More -> Preferences -> Search section.

If you need any help or have any questions regarding this change please contact support@deltagroup.com.
