Why did Zillow drop the multifamily option for refining searches? How can we get it back?

We use this feature all the time as multifamily investors.  But Zillow has dropped it from their search criteria!  Now it's no longer possible to limit searches to multifamily or single family, just "homes".  Why would they do this?  Anyone know another site that's better for searching by multifamily?  (Aside from MLS).

Didn't you read?  It hasn't be dropped; just click "apartments"... that will give you the "mult- family".

This is a really unfortunate change.  I am much less likely to use zillow because of this.

It is still there; it just changed terms.  Use the check box for "apartments" in the "more" pull down filter.  The results will say "duplexes" at the top, but it includes 3 on a lot and quads as well.  Probably even more units if such are listed for sale...

We are always looking for ways to improve our user experience and appreciate your feedback. We are working to get the multifamily back from the search criteria but we can't put a date on it yet. In the mean time, you may want to try to use the KEYWORDS function by adding the word multifamily to generate results of multifamily homes.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
