There is much to see and use on the RPR homepage. After you log in to RPR, you’ll see a blue-gray Search area near the top of the homepage. This Search bar gives you lots of options for finding a property or properties, searching for neighborhoods, running saved searches, and more.
If you’re interested in the Commercial homepage, simply follow the Commercial link in the header. Many of the homepage functions are the same.
Within residential RPR, let’s move from left to right across the homepage Search bar. The "Saved" drop-down expands to display a link, “My Current Listings,” which controls a search for your own active listings. When you follow the link, you initiate a search for all your active listings for sale. There’s another way to run the same search, and we’ll mention it below.
Underneath the “My Current Listings” link, the “Saved” drop-down has four more sections that pertain to your previous searching:
- Properties: Any properties you have searched for and saved previously will appear in this list. Follow the link from the drop-down to go straight to a saved property’s Property Details page. Or, edit the list in the drop-down if you no longer want to save a particular property.
- Searches: Any searches you have saved previously will appear in this list. Follow the link from the drop-down to run the search again. Or, edit the list in the drop-down if you no longer need a specific search.
- Custom Areas: Any areas you have saved previously will appear in this list. These are custom locations you defined using the polygon or radius drawing tool on the search map, and then saved as an area rather than a search. Follow the link from the drop-down to show the area again. Or, edit the list in the drop-down if you no longer need a specific area.
- Market Activity in My Home Areas: This section appears at the bottom of the drop-down, and if you have many saved items in the sections above, you may want to close a section or two (click the name of the section or the black triangle) so you can easily view the whole list. When you run a Market Activity search in your local market, called your Home Area, you are searching for new listings, price reductions, recently sold properties and other activity in that area in the past three months. You can update your Home Area list by clicking the “Edit” link in this section, which allows you to add or change your Home Areas. Or, you can visit the My Profile tab to search and add to your Home Areas or delete Home Areas—you may have up to 10. You can also run a Market Activity search, for any geography and with more control over the time-frame of the search, using the Search bar. We describe that process below.
To the right of Saved, you can initiate a new search by selecting one of these six search types atop the Search bar:
- All Properties
- For Sale
- Market Activity
- My Listings
When you select an All Properties or For Sale search, you will fill in a geography to search, as well as any of the parameters shown below the Search bar—Estimate Range / Price Range, Beds or Baths—that you may wish to use to narrow your search, then press the yellow Search button. Or, you can follow the Advanced Search link for more searching options.
For more details on Search and searching techniques:
When you execute a Neighborhood search, you will enter a geography and then choose whether you want your results to include that area exclusively, sub-areas within the geography, or areas nearby. Use the drop-down below the Search bar to make your selection.
Doing a School search allows you to search for elementary, middle or high schools in an area. You can complete your search by entering in a city and state, ZIP code, or school district (you will find this option in the drop down to the left of the search bar).
The Market Activity search functions the same as the Saved drop-down for Market Activity, except that you can enter any geography to search, not just your Home Areas. You can also control the time-frame covered by the search: the last three months, the last month, the last week or the last three days. Note that you can save a customized search like this if you expect to run it frequently.
The My Listings search functions the same as the My Current Listings option in the Saved drop-down.
Below the Search bar, look for these three elements of recent activity:
- Recent properties
- Recent searches
- Recent reports
Here you will find quick links to the latest activity in your account. To the right of these items, you will see an icon that tells you whether you last accessed the property via the website or the mobile app.
At the bottom of the homepage, you’ll find a variety of helpful links, including a link to chat with RPR Customer Support.
