How to Search for Multi Family Homes Using Different Listing Services
In order to best illustrate the capabilities of the platforms we discussed in the sections above, we will now conduct a couple of sample searches for multi family homes for sale in Manchester, NH and statewide.
We will use Zillow and LoopNet in these examples, however the search process will be pretty similar in any other platform you would like to utilize.
Manchester, NH Duplex Search with Zillow
In our first example, we will identify duplexes for sale in Manchester, New Hampshire.
To begin the query, you need to type your location of interest in the “Enter an address, neighborhood, city, or ZIP code” search field on the home page, and then hit “Enter” or click the search icon.
This initial search will return all available homes for sale in the Manchester, NH area, presented in both list and map formats.
The available properties are identified as dots on the map and hovering over them will display each home’s price, square footage, number of bedrooms and baths, and a small photo.
If you would like to explore a specific area of the map in detail, you can zoom in and out, pan, or switch to satellite or street view. The corresponding list of the properties for sale essentially contains the same basic information, except that it features a large photo of the home and an address.
In order to narrow down the results to duplexes only, we will utilize the toolbar located directly underneath the Zillow logo.
To do this, we will click on the “More” button and type the word “duplex” in the keyword text field (you may need to scroll down to see the keyword option). Once you click “Done,” the original list of results will be trimmed down to show only duplex properties.
The toolbar features many additional options that can help you tailor the search to your exact needs.
You can specify a price range, number of bedrooms or bathrooms, square feet, lot size, home type (house, apartment, condo, townhome, etc.), or use any other keywords to aid your search. Additionally, you can begin a brand new search, or save you current one.
Last but not least, it is worth mentioning that you can choose to see not only for sale properties, but also foreclosed listings, pre-foreclosures, as well as for rent and recently sold homes.
If you would like to explore a specific property further, you can click on either its information tile in the list or its marker on the map to access an overlay that contains loads of additional details.
In addition to multiple photographs, here you will find home features, value estimate, price and tax history, area amenities, seller contact information, and more.
New Hampshire Search for Multi Family Homes with LoopNet
LoopNet’s search tool has a slightly different interface that allows you to customize your query right from the start.
We will select the For Sale tab (it will appear in a darker shade) and then choose “Multifamily” in the “Search all types for sale” dropdown list. In the “Enter a location” field, we will type our location of interest – New Hampshire in this example.
If you have additional requirements that you would like to use as filters in your search, you can click on the Advanced Search link located underneath the red Search button to access the Advanced Search overlay.
Here you can specify additional criteria such as price range, building size, number of bedrooms, cap rate, and use specific keywords to narrow down your search.
The results of our search are shown on the next screen, which consists of a list of the available multi family homes for sale in NH and a map identifying their corresponding locations.
The list features some basic details on each property, including its address, price, and square footage. If you hover over a specific listing, its location on the map will be highlighted.
Alternatively, you can click on a property marker on the map to have the corresponding detail card brought into focus in the list. Furthermore, you can explore the map by zooming in and out, panning, or using the aerial view
We also would like to highlight the toolbar above the search results as it has several useful features. You can execute a brand new search without returning to the home page.
Additionally, you can customize your existing search by specifying other criteria such as price and building size limits. Clicking on the More Filters button will open the Advanced Search overlay we discussed earlier.
Lastly, you can click on the Sort button to reorder the results in various ways – by date, price, cap rate, and alphabetically among other options.
To access additional information about a specific property, you can click on its detail card in the list on the right.
The detailed screen of the home includes multiple images, numerous facts about the building, area demographic data, and contact information for the listing agent.
While you may be preferential to a certain platform from the list we included at the beginning of this article, it is wise to explore at least several in order to expand your options of finding the right investment opportunity.
Don’t forget to utilize the “Save Search” options in order to save time and effort as you revisit each listing service.
