Zillow Advice: Home Buying - how can I get only ONE STORY homes http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/how-can-I-get-only-ONE-STORY-homes/458976/ Zillow Advice | Zillow Real Estate If searching on Zillow, you ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/how-can-I-get-only-ONE-STORY-homes/458976/ If searching on Zillow, you will need to do multiple "key word" searches.&nbsp; If you want a phrase, make sure you put it in quotes, for example "single story", or "one story".&nbsp; Remember to also try words like "ranch", or "rambler", or "bungalow", or&nbsp; "wheelchair".&nbsp; There is no "OR" operator for the keyword search, so they will need to be separate searches.&nbsp; But you can save each, and can set a name for each to be able to tell which words are used more often in the agents' description copy for your area.<br/><br/>If you really wanted to, you could use a <a href="http://www.google.com/advanced_search?hl=en" rel="nofollow">Google Advanced search</a> limiting the search domain to <br/>http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/<br/><br/>As that would allow you to use Boolean logic.&nbsp; But then you don't get the map.&nbsp; You would need to limit the range of search by including a city and state name, or by including a zip-code.<br/> Fri, 07 Sep 2012 16:18:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/how-can-I-get-only-ONE-STORY-homes/458976/ 2012-09-07T16:18:00Z I agree with my fellow agents. ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/how-can-I-get-only-ONE-STORY-homes/458976/ I agree with my fellow agents. &nbsp;You will want to find a buyer's agent to work with you. &nbsp;It's important to select an agent you feel comfortable with and who can provide the best service. &nbsp;The MLS search that can be provided to you will filter out what you don't want to view and add in what's important to you. &nbsp;Please let me know if I can be of assistance to you today!<br/><br/>Best wishes!

I can get you set up on a MLS search that can only be done through Realtors, but it will be the best since it is where all the listings come from.<br/><br/>Just contact me through Zillow to get started!<br/><br/>~Chris Fri, 07 Sep 2012 15:45:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/how-can-I-get-only-ONE-STORY-homes/458976/ 2012-09-07T15:45:00Z Zillow doesnt have that info ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/how-can-I-get-only-ONE-STORY-homes/458976/ Zillow doesnt have that info nor most info a MLS would, contact a LOCAL Realtor near you.
