If you haven’t checked out our new and improved Property Search Portal, then you are missing out. Now integrated with ABoR.com, the updated portal also houses our Find an Agent tool, our Communities hub, as well as other great resources for buyers and sellers alike.
Unlike other widely used property search sites, however, the ABoR Property Search Portal brings the power of the MLS directly to you, the agent or consumer, so you can tap into the data and home in on the properties that are most relevant to your search.
Here are our Top 10 ABoR Property Search features:
On top of being able to search for properties based on criteria, such as address, city, zip code or subdivision, you can also enter the name of a school district or the listing ID (MLS number) to pare down your search results and dig into the data.
Thanks to Google Maps, you can also narrow your search simply by drawing a shape to pinpoint a specific area on the map. What’s more, you can include terrain, add labels, or even switch to the Satellite view to really get the lay of the land.
Under the “More” dropdown on the search page, you can now easily search for open houses, including virtual tours being offered by REALTORS®, as well as single-level only residences, waterfront properties, or homes with swimming pools.
It’s true you can find open houses under “Other Features,” but if you’re in a hurry, you can always go straight to the Open Houses section on the search page to quickly track down open houses being hosted throughout the Austin-Round Rock MSA.
New on the Market
From the main Property Search page, scroll down to find a section specifically designed to showcase the latest listings on the market. Click the “Find a Home” button to see the number of new listings in a particular region on the map.
Want to get a feel for local communities throughout Central Texas? Look no further than our Communities page, which spotlights communities in the greater Austin area, as well as other rapidly growing cities in the Austin-Round Rock MSA.
Find an Agent
Take advantage of our new agent directory which connects you to more than 18,000 agents working in our 18-county MSA and beyond. While the page sorts agents at random, searchers can sort agents, including brokerage offices, alphabetically.
Buyer & Seller Resources
Whether you’re buying, selling, or renting, we’ve got you covered with important guides for newbies and professionals alike. Visit this page to learn why working with a REALTOR® is the way to go, what to expect when conducting a transaction during COVID-19, as well as to check out the Property Tour Schedule.
Both ABoR and ACTRIS take consumer protection seriously, which is why we’ve created a page for agents and consumers to brush up on the Fair Housing Act and the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA), including best practices and information on filing complaints with entities such as HUD.
Why Work with a REALTOR®
Misinformation is widespread in the digital age, but we’re here to help consumers understand why working with a REALTOR® really is best when buying or selling a home. Visit this page to learn why it pays to work with a professional.
Our new ABoR Property Search Portal offers everything a real estate professional or consumer could want and more! So, the next time someone ask you where they should go to start their property search, remember to tell them to visit ABoR.com.
