Homesnap Introduces Search By Commute Time

Agents and consumers can now filter their search criteria based on commute time from multiple locations to find suitable neighborhoods for homes.


Homesnap, the market-leading national home search platform that provides real-time MLS data to consumers and a mobile productivity tool for agents, today announced the release of its new “Search By Commute” feature, which allows agents and consumers to search for properties specifically by multiple household members’ commute times.

Homesnap’s new “Search by Commute” feature was engineered in-house, giving it several advantages over drive-time features offered by other platforms. Homesnap’s “Search by Commute” features a simple, user-friendly interface and the ability to save, sync and share commute searches with others across multiple iOS and Android devices and the web.

It is powered by statistical analysis combined with real-time traffic information and machine-learning technology, delivering accurate, real-time results. Finally, this is the first time that such a feature is available to agents and consumers at no additional cost.

Users can input up to five destinations to generate the search results, such as multiple employers, schools, daycare facilities, gyms, or any other location of importance. Homesnap will highlight all neighborhoods that are within the maximum drive time from all of the combined locations, even if they are not contiguous.
