How do I create links for specific or pre-defined searches with iHomeFinder?

You can do so by using the following methods to create links to specific searches for your PremiumIDX by iHomeFinder. Simply create a hyperlink using the samples below. Replace the ClientID with your iHomeFinder client id. This can be found in the URL of your current IDX search under the cid= portion of the URL.

To view all listings in a given city or zip code, use the page http://www.idxre.com/idx/results.cfm with URL parameters as follows:

To view all listings in a given city, use the "cit" parameter:
http://www.idxre.com/idx/results.cfm?cid=ClientID&cit=Madison
http://www.idxre.com/idx/results.cfm?cid=ClientID&cit=Walnut%20Creek
http://www.idxre.com/idx/results.cfm?cid=ClientID&cit=Pleasant+Hill

Note the use of '%20' or '+' to join city names with spaces in them.

To view all listings in a given city, use the "cit" parameter:
http://www.idxre.com/idx/results.cfm?cid=ClientID&cit=Madison
http://www.idxre.com/idx/results.cfm?cid=ClientID&cit=Walnut%20Creek
http://www.idxre.com/idx/results.cfm?cid=ClientID&cit=Pleasant+Hill

Note the use of '%20' or '+' to join city names with spaces in them.

To view all listings in a given zip code, use the "zip" parameter. For example:
http://www.idxre.com/idx/results.cfm?cid=ClientID&zip=12345

To limit listings to a certain price range, use the parameters "mnlp" (minimum list price) and/or "mxlp" (maximum list price) - note: you must include at the least one city or zip code.
For example: &mnlp=500000&mxlp=10000000&zip=12345

To limit listings to specific property types, use the parameter "pt".
For Single Family Residential homes only use &pt=sfr. To limit listings to Condos only use &pt=cnd. For example: http://www.idxre.com/idx/results.cfm?cid=ClientID&cit=Avon&pt=sfr

To view recent listings only, use the parameter "dtr" to specify the number of days to include in the date range. For example, to view all new listings within the last week:
http://www.idxre.com/idx/results.cfm?cid=ClientID&cit=Avon&dtr=7

To sort listings in a different order, add the parameter "sb" with the following values:
pd - Sort by List Price, from most expensive to least. This is the default setting.
pa - Sort by List Price, from least expensive to most.
cn - Sort by City, in alphabetical order. Listings in the same city will sort by price.
zp - Sort by Zip Code. Listings in the same zip code will sort by price.
sf - Sort by Square Feet, only for Single Family and Mobile Home listings.

For example, to sort listings by city name:
http://www.idxre.com/idx/results.cfm?cid=ClientID&cit=Avon&sb=cn
