How to set up Special Searches
Conducting a Basic Search
Have a specific city, neighborhood, or even address in mind? Our basic search bar lets you find what you are looking for with ease. It can be found on the homepage and every community page and lets you explore homes for sale across the Dane County real estate market.
To search, just begin typing in the name of a city, neighborhood, address, zip code, or MLS listing number. Our autocomplete feature will make helpful suggestions based on what's already found in the MLS. Finish typing or select a query from the suggestions and then click "Start Search."
The search will take you to the main Search Page where you can refine the filters, select different sorting parameters, zoom in and out of the map, and click on the results to view each listing's details page.
Saving a Search
Want to receive updates when new properties matching your saved criteria appear on the market?
Saving your search allows you to receive daily listings updates via your e-mail address.This will keep you informed about the latest properties available and ensure that you don't miss out.
Simply click on Save Search and select the frequency with which you would like to receive your updates.
Adding a Listing to your Favorites
Bookmarking or saving a listing is easy once you've found it. To save a listing for later viewing, just click the heart icon near each listing result (labeled "Save this Listing") or on each listing's details page. You must be registered for this feature to work.
To access your favorite properties, make sure that you are logged into the site, then select "My Favorites" from the drop-down menu near the top-right corner of the navigation. Every active listing that you have bookmarked will appear and can be revisited from this list.
Search By School District
Looking for a new home in a particular Dane County school district? You can use our advanced search filters to narrow down your hunt. Type your query into the search bar (or leave it blank to browse all properties) and then click "Filters". When you scroll down the menu that appears, you'll quickly find a number of options for narrowing your search by district or even particular elementary, middle, or high schools. Our autocomplete feature will make helpful suggestions based on what's already found in the MLS.
Search Foreclosed Homes For Sale
If you are interested in finding Madison homes for sale that are listed as a foreclosure, short sale, or bank-owned property? You can use our advanced search filters to narrow your hunt. Type your query into the search bar (or leave it blank to browse all properties) and then click "Filters". When you scroll down the menu that appears, you'll find Foreclosure, Short Sales and Bank Owned drop-down menus. Here you can choose to include/exclude foreclosures, short sales, and bank-owned homes from your search.
