Want to locate listings in a certain city or on a particular street? Say it, don't click it. What you're looking for can be found by property address or M. L. S. numbers as well. Say it, don't click it. Help Me Buy My New Home, changing the way you search for real estate. Say it, don't click it.<br/><br/>To perform a property characteristic search, say something like &quot;search for homes with between three and four bedrooms.&quot; Once you tell Alexa your first property characteristic, she will tell you the number of properties for sale that match that characteristic, and then ask if you want to add another characteristic or hear the list of properties matching your search. You can keep adding property characteristics, one at a time, until you are satisfied with your search. Once you are ready to hear your search results, Alexa will read a short description of each property; you can check the Alexa app for more details on each listing. <br/><br/>For best results, do not try to mix property characteristics in a single statement. Currently, the skill supports the following property characteristics:<br/><br/>square footage: some examples are &quot;search for properties with at least 1800 square feet&quot; or &quot;search for listings with between 1000 and 1200 square feet.&quot; Make sure to say the words &quot;square feet.&quot;<br/><br/>year built: some examples are &quot;search for properties built after 2000&quot; or &quot;search for houses built before 1990.&quot; Currently the skill only supports actual year built, not age, so statements like &quot;search for properties that are at least ten years old&quot; will not work.<br/><br/>price: some examples are &quot;search for properties that cost between 200,000 and 300,000 dollars&quot; or &quot;search for homes that cost at most 1,000,000 dollars.&quot; Make sure to say the word &quot;dollars.&quot; <br/><br/>number of bedrooms: some examples are &quot;search for properties with 3 bedrooms&quot; or &quot;search for listings with between 5 and 7 bedrooms.&quot; Make sure to say the word &quot;bedrooms.&quot;<br/><br/>number of bathrooms: some examples are &quot;search for houses with more than 2.5 bathrooms&quot; or &quot;search for listings with between 3 and 4 bathrooms.&quot; Make sure to say the word &quot;bathrooms.&quot;<br/><br/>city: some examples are &quot;search for properties in Destin&quot; or &quot;search for properties in Santa Rosa Beach.&quot; Most cities along the Emerald Coast of Florida are supported.<br/><br/>property type: some examples are &quot;search for mobile homes&quot; or &quot;search for condos&quot; or &quot;search for houses&quot; or &quot;search for commercial sales.&quot;<br/><br/>You can change property characteristics without beginning a new search. For example, if you previously said &quot;search for properties with at least 5 bedrooms&quot; but Alexa found no properties, you can say &quot;search for properties with at least 3 bedrooms&quot; while leaving all other property characteristics the same. You can continue adding and changing parameters and hearing search results, or say &quot;new search&quot; to begin a new search.<br/><br/>To perform an M. L. S. number or property address search, say something like &quot;search for property address 123 Twin Oak&quot; or &quot;search for M. L. S. number 758850.&quot; If a property currently for sale matches that property address or M. L. S. number, Alexa will read a short description about that property and then exit the skill; you can check the Alexa app for more details on that listing. <br/><br/>It is highly recommended to begin any search statement with the words &quot;search for...&quot; so Alexa correctly understands your property characteristic, property address, or M. L. S. number.
