Last week we rolled out one of our most-requested features: townhouse search. Internally we call it “Remove #@!*#*@ Townhomes From My Search!” If you like townhomes, it does come with the ability to only look at townhomes too.
The townhome boom of the aughts was particularly concentrated in Seattle, but people throughout America are passionate about the topic of shared walls. Given the vehement hatred of townhomes by many of our users, it might seem amazing that any townhomes ever get built, let alone sold – but as one of our Seattle agents pointed out to me last month, everyone hates townhomes until they see the condition of the farther away free standing homes that are smaller and with fewer bedrooms that they can get for the same amount of money.
One thing is a virtual certainty: if you are at all serious about looking at both townhouses and old-school houses, odds are you’ll probably end up in a townhouse. It’s hard to beat the value. And if you are one of those people, we now have a townhouse icon so you can see them on the map.
Whether you are a townhome hater or a born again townhome lover, you can now tailor your search on Estately to reflect your deeply-held beliefs and never be forced to look at the way the other half lives again. Like the House and Condo search option, Townhouses show up on the map with an icon depicting a blue roof and shared wall.
This is available in many of our major metros – like these townhomes in Seattle and these townhomes in Los Angeles - and we will be rolling it out to additional metros over the next week.
Enjoy and, as always, contact us with any questions.
