Rightmove - new search tool

The UKs most popular property portal has introduced a new search tool Draw-a-Search. This feature enables landlords to search for property outside conventional postcodes.

Draw-a-Search allows a landlord to sketch out and define their own area of search on a map and perform property searches in that specific location.

Miles Shipside, commercial director of Rightmove, said: “Home hunters often have a very specific search area in mind that does not neatly fit in a postcode area or a radius of a town.

“Using Draw-a-Search they can now specifically define that area to fully customise and fine-tune their property search process. It’s great news for Rightmove member agents that we have introduced another ground-breaking feature to impress their potential sellers and landlords.”

I've just used it straight away without even viewing the tutorial video. It's dead easy, click and draw and then save the area. You can view the properties meeting your defined search criteria within the area you create.

I'm glad to see that Rightmove are using some of their huge profits to invest in their functionality. For use it was the biggest but like Microsoft it certainly wasn't the best technology wise.
