Advanced Search Methods
The best way is to do a series of searches.
There are two choices of Advanced Searches:
Advanced with Contact Information.
Means all the listings you find will be active. All the contact information is available to the public. You must be a member to have the public read your real estate ads and the contact information.
Status Active, Inactive & Expired.
The public will see the subject lines of all the listings but will only be able to click on the Active Status ones to see the contact information. Only members of ICIWorld have access to all contact information of all listings no matter what the status. Another good reason to contact a member today.
Important note re: Inactive, Expired Listings
Just because a listing is inactive does not mean the information is not active. When a persons membership expires we place the information to Inactive, Expired status. The information can be quite active.
A "Want" for instance is still quite active for most salespeople whether their membership is expired or not. Some "Wants" such as "Wanted Shopping Centers $1M-$5M" are active for a lifetime for a broker. These are regular clients of that broker.
However in our opinion the most important thing about ICIWorld is not
the listings, it is the people. And it is all about contacting people who
you can do a deal with or finding information that can benefit you. We
always say "contacts . . . make contracts."
Now we have a question for you!
Most all agree the answer is Yes.
Not only is this all possible but in one recent month 44% of all the deals that were done were done in this manner.
ICIWorld helps and makes possible the introduction of two people who
are both creative in their own right. People who make a business out of
looking to put people together, a buyer and seller, a tenant and a
landlord in the case of leasing, a business owner and buyer, etc. For
those wishing to strike gold, it is more than possible, it is probable
because it is all about people.
To search both Advanced and Advanced with Contact Information

|Key Word Searching|
Key Word Searching:
ICIWorld is not a real estate board listing service. It is an information service. An important way to find information within five seconds is called key word searching. This kind of key word searching can search through a whole database of thousands of listings within seconds!
Perhaps the most difficult to teach on this service is key word searching. Because there really are no rules. However there are a few maxims. Here they are:
The main area where we use key wording searching is in the subject line. We recommend members and the public place four ingredients in the subject: Location, type, price and or size and sizzle.
So if you have a donut shop and do not put the word donut in the subject line, something is wrong. One can search the word donut and find them. However another word used is coffee, so you also have to search that.
So you should be able to search the subject line for a city location as well. However because of the nature of information, sometimes it is preferable not to mention the exact location so as to only provide a general area. Just because you search a specific location, may not mean there are no properties there. Search the general area and then contact the brokers.
This page may raise more questions and we are more than happy to help you on your search.
