Hints and Tips

  • Too Many Properties - If you receive too many properties in your email alerts simply add more specific property criteria. With hundreds of new properties added each week, not setting any criteria will result in a very large number of results being returned. We do cap each email to a maximum of 50 properties. If your search returns more results, you may view the full list of results by clicking on the appropriate link in the email.
  • Too Few Properties - If you are receiving too few results, try broadening your search, this is especially applicable to the Property Alert as there are fewer properties uploaded in the shorter timeframe. If you would like to receive more results we would recommend that you loosen the search constraints for property types, swimming pool, habitable space and land size first. The other criteria are often more complete and are absolute necessities when searching for property. If necessary, you could broaden the locations specified to regions rather than departments or perhaps specify one fewer bedroom as many properties have rooms which could double as bedrooms but may not be specified in the search data.
  • Properties Matching my Profile - Properties which match your property profile are included on your Account Home in the The Properties matching my Profile section. This is a list of the first 30 properties on the website that match your Property Profile, with the newest at the top. You can view a full list of matching properties by clicking the My Results link on the left menu and then by clicking View them all in our Search Engine at the top of the page.

  • I cannot view the images in the email - Most email clients have an option for you to mark emails as safe and/or to allow images to be downloaded. Simply select the option to download images or mark email as safe and the images should be visible. Many email clients now have the ability to always download images in emails from certain users, selecting this will prevent you having to allow images each time your receive the email alerts.
