COVID-19 has challenged many businesses to change and adapt. We’ve all found new ways to work, learn and interact. Real estate professionals in particular have had to find new ways to continue providing their services to existing clients and find potential clients to maintain and grow their business. Remine believes in a digital real estate journey that connects consumers, agents, lenders and other service providers onto one platform. For this purpose, Remine has developed a modern, mobile-friendly MLS front-end to make it easy for agents to search for properties and identify prospects with the most advanced map-based Search feature in the industry.  

The Search feature in Remine is more than just a map. It's a place for real estate agents to visualize opportunities using data-based targeted filters that pull from several data sources at once. Remine provides agents with the advantage of viewing both MLS and Public Record Data in one place. Performing searches in Remine gives agents access to detailed information including school districts, property history, home equity, mortgage information, parcel data, flood zones, and so much more. This helps agents gain valuable insights and have a better picture of neighborhoods to identify new business opportunities.  

Within Remine Mobile, agents can search for properties in several ways. Just to name a few, agents can search properties by address, zip code, city, MLS listing id, and even by drawing an area on the map using the draw tool. Additionally, search results can be refined even further with map-based Filters and Layers. The difference between Filters and Layers is that layers will display a choropleth (i.e., a colorful overlay) on the map for quick reference, while filters will remove properties from the map that don't meet the agent’s search criteria. This allows agents to get a visual look at how properties compare in a neighborhood with color overlays on the map. Using filters, on the other hand, is a great way to carry out a search that's geared specifically toward identifying leads. In a future blog we will go more into depth about applying Layers and Filters in order to create targeted prospect lists. For this blog, we will focus on performing searches in Remine Mobile.
