With the release of advanced filters, users with an expert plan can now conduct extremely granular property searches by combing over 140 different filters together to create completely unique property search results. You can combine filters and filter groups with AND and OR operators, which give you unmatched precision when searching for properties with specific criteria.
Define a buy-box like no other. Create a hyper-focused marketing campaign. Find the active agents in your neighborhood.
How to use advanced filters
Step 1: Turn on Advanced Filters
By default, only basic filters are enabled. To enable advanced filters, you’ll need to toggle the advanced filters button in the top right of the navigation bar on desktop or hidden within the filters button on mobile.
Step 2: Choose a location for your search
Although it’s not required to select a specific location, it often helps refine your search if you do so. You can add as many zones as you want, and TopHap will return results from all zones.
Step 3: Add desired filters
To add filters to your property search, click the Add Filter button.
You’ll see a dropdown menu appear with all of the filter options. You can search for filters by name or you can scroll through the menu items and browse filters by section.
Click on any filter name to add it to your search.
After adding a filter to your search, a popup with the relevant filter options will appear. You can use these inputs to tune the filter, adding another level of specificity.
For example, when using the temperature filter, you have many options to choose from. You can filter properties based on Summer/winter temperatures as well as min/max/average values. These filter options give you ultra granular control over your resulting property matches, allowing you to cut through the noise and find only the properties that match your criteria perfectly.
To remove a single filter, you can click on the x button that appears when you hover over a specific filter, or if you want to remove all filters, you can click the clear all button.
Complex filter combinations
We can also combine individual filters together to make filter groups. Filters and filter groups can be combined with AND and/or OR operators, which describe how the selected filters and filter groups combine. This feature empowers us to write extremely expressive queries that we can use to find properties that match almost any criteria we can think of. It’s like adding parenthesis around an an expression in algebra.
This feature can be helpful for including properties with divergent characteristics in one search result. For example, you may be interested in seeing both homes that are larger than 3,000 sqft if the lot is at least 2 acres and homes that are less than 1500 sqft if the lot is less than 1 acre.
In this case, you can create two filter groups:
homes less than 1500 sqft and less than 1 acre
homes greater than 3,000 sqft and greater than 5 acres
This combination of filter groups will show homes that are larger than 3,000 sqft on lots larger than 5 acres AND homes that are smaller than 1,500 sqft so long as they are on a lot that is smaller than 1 acre.
3,000+ sqft properties on lots smaller than 5 acres and properties less than 1,500 sqft on big lots will be excluded from the results.
As you can see, TopHap’s advanced filters add several dimensions to a traditional property search. You can drill down on search results and find the exact properties you are looking for by combining over 140 filters, filter groups, and AND/OR operators. Once you try advanced filters, you’ll never go back.
Advanced Filter Use-case Examples:
Properties that have been shown more than 10 days ago and haven’t been sold might be more likely to sell under list price, so you can use this search to find properties that might be a good deal!
Some people dont’t like extreme weather. If you’ll only consider homes in moderate climates, you can use advanced filters to exclude properties that are in regions that have snow in the winter or are hotter than 85 degrees in the summer.
Almost everyone likes pool days, but in a lot of places pool days are only feasible a few months out of the year. This search shows where you can comfortably enjoy a pool 12 months out of the year!
Choosing a place to grow old is challenging! This search shows active homes that have an elevator in areas with folks who are generally older than 55 years old.
You can also use advanced filters to find off market opportunities. A great example of this is to show all properties that have out of state owners for more than 20 years. These properties may be likely to sell in the coming years and may present an opportunity for investors or buyers to snap up an off market deal.
