How to filter
Had to dig for a few minutes. When you are looking at the map click on the search then click on advanced search. This is where your filters are. Blue houses are new listings black are not and green are reduced listings. All the info is right there just have to look.
This app seems to think listings near Santa Monica include homes in Davis, CA (400 mi. away) or Brea (50 mi. away), despite zip codes being correct. If I scroll to N. CA, it thinks L.A. listings are 5000+ miles away. In R. E., location is, of course, everything: wrong=useless. Also, are there really only ~20 FSBO listings in L.A./SF Valley (no search limits)? Maybe, but other reviews mention listings not showing up… Really wanted to like this app, too.
Not intuitive, needs usability testing
Like others, I can't figure out how to filter. I can't find an in-app explanation of the icon colors, and they are not intuitive. The icons are too big, causing them to overlap unnecessarily. Half of the materials in Settings--the top half, so the emphasized material--has nothing to do with settings.
