Entering a value in the Min field only will return results beginning with that minimum value and anything above that value. Entering a value in the Max field only will return results from zero up to that value. Entering values in both fields will return results beginning and ending with those values.

Features Search Field

The features search field allows you to refine your search results to match more closely with your buyer’s wish list and ‘must haves’ or ‘must not haves’ in a property.

Wild card Search Fields

Fields with allow you to search by part of a value. Instead of having to type in the data exactly how it was entered in the listing, Paragon will search for results based on a partial entry.

Example 1: Smith* means you know the city name starts with Smith.
Example 2: *Ville means you know the city name ends in Ville.
