How do I refine my property search?

Searching for properties on PrimeLocation is easy, with properties divided into For sale, To rent, New homes, and International.

Keywords can be used when searching for properties to narrow down your search criteria, to help you find your dream home or commercial property. Keyword searches can be done from within the Advanced search options when searching on the website, or, by scrolling down and fully completing the search screen fields on the app. 


Keyword searches check the full description of every listed property and display the matching results. If the word "garden" is included in the full description, even if the phrase is "no garden", then that property will also be displayed
