Today we thought we’d do a special post about how to improve your searches in Trovit.
It’s true to say that for those of us who work in Trovit, using our site to search for our next property, car or job has become second nature. This is why we would like to share with you some of the tricks of the trade that we have picked up along the way, helping you get to what you’re looking for faster.
1. Know what you’re looking for before you look for it.
To begin with, we must know what it is we’re trying to find and where.
It definitely helps, at the moment of searching for something, to know exactly what we are after and where we want it to be. For example, using a generic word like Marketing is not the same as using Assistant Marketing Online. Or, to use another example, your results will be very different when typing in Apartment Chicago compared to Apartment Austin 2 bedrooms.
To help limit your search a bit you can use some of the filters that you’ll find on the left-hand side of the search pages. Do you know if you would like a new build? Something with parking? Or perhaps something that doesn’t cost more than £250,000? With these tools you can refine your search and save a lot of time by only being provided with the most relevant results.
In Trovit Cars you can filter your search for your desired car by filtering by year or by price, for example.
Looking at Jobs, it proves to be very useful to only look at the job offers that require a certain number of years of experience or that are part-time etc.
2. How do you prefer to see the listings? In a list, by photos or on a map?
In Trovit Homes and Trovit Cars we offer you the possibility to see the listings in whichever way is more comfortable for you. You’ll find these different options on the left-hand side just under the filters. In Trovit Homes you’ll be able to search using all three options while in Trovit Cars, you can see the listings in list view or only those listings that have a photo.
3. Save the listings that interest you the most so you can get back to them in a flash.
One of the lesser known possibilities in Trovit is the option to save your listings so that you have them at your fingertips whenever you want to get back to them. To be able to save your listings all you need to do is register in myTrovit and click on ‘save this listing in myTrovit,’ that appears in the ‘more’ option of each listing.
4. Change the combination of words that you use in the search box.
Trovit, like other search engines, works with keywords. If you change these keywords around you will get different results, meaning you may just find that listing you´re are looking for.
For example, you could look for property like this:
However, it gives you results that you’ll already have seen. Try to vary the search by adding a neighborhood or some characteristics of the property you are looking for:
5. Create alerts and find out about the newest listings for your search.
The quickest and most effective way to find whatever you are looking for, before anyone else, is to create yourself some alerts with your searches. Once this is done we’ll send you an email as soon as there are new listings matching your search.
