Chicago Real Estate Website Offers Easy Search Features
Buying, selling or renting real estate in Chicago can be a very complex and time-consuming process. When homebuyers are in the market for a downtown Chicago condo or rental property, eliminating as much confusion as possible can be crucial in securing a new home. The Chicago rental market is perhaps the hottest we’ve ever seen, so moving quickly and efficiently will especially work to a buyer or renter’s advantage. But what if the real estate websites you’re visiting are hard to navigate or simply not providing you with the necessary information for you to determine what Gold Coast condo or Streeterville rental is right for you? Knowing exactly what Chicago realty websites to visit and how to navigate each page can sometimes mean the difference in finding the perfect condo property that suites your needs, or simply just settling on what you happened to stumble upon. With this in mind, I decided to give all my readers and real estate clients a run-down on just some of the user-friendly features SeeChicagoRealEstate offers to homebuyers and Chicago renters alike:
1) Search Chicago Real Estate by Drawing a Custom Polygon:
Perhaps the most innovative feature on SeeChicagoRealEstate.com, the custom polygon search allows users to draw specific boundary lines around the location they most desire and view every available property within those outlined boundaries. To get started, click “Advanced Search” on the right-hand side of the SeeChicagoRealEstate homepage and then the “Map” tab under “Quick Status Search” on the following page. Once there, you’ll see an option to “Draw Polygon”, which you simply click, and draw the lines around the Chicago neighborhood you’d like to search.

2) Search Chicago Real Estate Near CTA Stops:
If a close proximity to public transit via the CTA “L” is a necessity in your new home search, SeeChicagoRealEstate.com users can search available properties closest to whatever CTA “L” stop they prefer. Simply locate the “Search By” widget on the homepage’s right-hand side and click “Near CTA Stops” to get started.

3) Search Chicago Real Estate with the SeeChicagoRealEstate.com Mobile App:
Download the SeeChicagoRealEstate.com mobile app and search the hottest Chicago properties on-the-go through your personal smart-phone. Once downloaded, the GPS-enabled mobile app thoroughly searches the MLS for every available property within a close proximity to your phone’s current location. So when you’re out searching for a new Chicago condo or rental, simply drive to the location you’d most like to live and access the SeeChicagoRealEstate mobile application to see every property on the market nearest that specific location! To download the app to your phone, go to SeeChicagoRealEstate.com and click on the “Go Mobile” widget on the right-hand side. Also see the following video for more information and how to download this app directly to your phone:
4) Search Chicago Real Estate by Neighborhood
SeeChicagoRealEstate.com has extensive and detailed pages for nearly every Chicago neighborhood on the north side. If you’re a homebuyer or renter who is unfamiliar with downtown Chicago real estate, access each neighborhood page to learn more about the lifestyle and real estate options offered in that particular location. To access the SeeChicagoRealEstate.com neighborhood guide, click “Chicago Neighborhood Guide” in the main menu box near the top of the homepage and choose your desired neighborhood on the following page to get all the information you need about each location.
5) Search Chicago Rentals
Many real estate websites fail to include a section solely dedicated to rentals available in downtown Chicago. Not SeeChicagoRealEstate.com, however. Not only does SeeChicagoRealEstate have a section dedicated to listing fabulous rentals all over downtown Chicago, but it categorizes rental listings by neighborhood, giving users the ability to narrow down their search to the location they most desire. To access the SeeChicagoRealEstate rental page, click the “Rentals” tab at the top of the homepage or watch the following short video to learn how to use this portion of SeeChicagoRealEstate.com:
