Introducing Improved “Near Transit” Search
Yes, it’s another feature improvement made to Estately! As you may or may not know, Seattle isn’t exactly known for its mass transit. The busesâ€”or “road slugs,” as I sometimes call themâ€”are good, but they’re no light rail. On our move south to Oregon, we knew we had to do something more take advantage of the many transit options available in Portland: bus, MAX light rail lines, aerial tram, streetcar, and trolley.
So what did we do? We added rail line to the “Near Transit” search option, allowing you to find houses and condos up to 2 miles away from specified bus and/or rail routes! Be one of the many who are leaving the gas pumps behind for public transit. If a mile-long walk sounds daunting, keep in mind that it takes the average person only 17 minutes to walk one mile. You can use that bus or train ride to get some good reading in, as well. Convinced yet?
This feature isn’t limited to just Portland – you can use it in Seattle and cities-soon-to-be-disclosed, too.
