How to start your search on Rightmove

Start off by entering an area, postcode or station into the search bar on our homepage and then click the "For sale" or "To rent" button depending on whether you are looking for a property to buy or to rent. From here, you will be taken to a page where you can change the filters to help you find the perfect property. Once you have gone through to the search results page you can edit your search criteria at any time using the filter tray at the top of the page.

What if I can’t find what I’m looking for?

If your first search has not brought back quite what you are looking for, you can always change your search criteria. You can do this by using the drop down menus or 'filter' function at the top of your search results and the page will update straight away.

What is ‘keyword sort’ and how do I use it?

You can narrow down the search for your dream home even more with our Keyword Sort. This allows you to search for properties with a specific feature or requirement without having to click on each advertisement.

To use the keyword sort, click on the grey box that says ‘+ Add keyword’. Then, type in the additional feature/requirement you want your property to have and press ENTER on your keyboard. Your results will change and bump up the listings that have this feature/requirement to the top of your page.

How can I sort my properties?

You can sort your results by price, newest and oldest property. The option to change your sort order is above the very first property on the page.


How can I see my search results on a map?

To see where each property is located in an area, you can use the map view. You can change your view to either of these options at the top of your results page next to your sort order.
