There are different ways to search for properties in RPNZ.
|Search tabs||Filtering your search||Sorting search results|
|Selecting properties||Working with selected properties|
When you search for a specific address using the Search bar on the homepage, RPNZ takes you directly to the Property Details page.

If your search is less specific – for instance, if you search by a suburb or street name – you’ll be directed to the Property Search page, which shows a list of properties that fit your search criteria. You can then refine your search criteria, depending on the types of information you have available.

On the Property Search page, below the Search bar is a row of five tabs:
- Sales History
- On The Market
- Market Compare
As each tab has a different purpose, the data points displayed on the property search results will vary as you move from one tab to the next.
This tab shows all the property records CoreLogic has available for the street or suburb you’ve searched for.
Sales History tab
This tab displays properties that have sold within the last six months. You can select a different period by adjusting the date range in the Refine Search box.
On The Market tab
This tab shows properties that CoreLogic has identified as being listed for sale.
Market Compare tab
This tab is a mixture of the On The Market and the Sales History tabs. It identifies how many days a property has been listed for sale and whether the listing price has changed.
This provides contact details for each property record. The details have been sourced through publicly available lists in compliance with the Do Not Call Registry (DNC).
Filtering your search
Clicking each of the five tabs applies search filters that you can use to narrow down your search results. You can narrow your search results further by setting specific criteria in the Refine Search box on the left of the Property Search page (see each tab’s Refine Search box in Image 3).
Note: The more criteria you apply to refine your search, the fewer properties may appear in your search results. You might consider starting with one or two criteria, and then gradually adding criteria to refine your search results until only the most suitable property matches are displayed.

Sorting search results
You can modify how your search results are sorted by clicking the Sort By drop-down menu at the top right of your search results. This allows you to sort the properties by a range of attributes such as sale date, capital value, land size and floor area.
Moving between the five tabs may affect which attributes you can sort by. The same applies if you change any of the criteria in the Refine Search box. Some fields may have default data included, which could influence the set of results displayed within a specific tab.
You can also modify how many properties are displayed on each page of search results by clicking the drop-down menu to the right of the Sort By menu. You can choose to show 10, 20, 30, 40 or 50 properties per page.
To select a specific property from your list of search results, tick the checkbox to the left of the relevant property photo. Untick it to deselect the property. To select or deselect all the properties in the list at once, click Select All or None at the top left of the search results list.

As you make selections, the number of properties on the Selected button will update. Click the button to show the selected properties only. To display the full list of search results, click the View All button.

When you click the Selected button, the Refine Search box is greyed out and can’t be accessed. This is because you can’t adjust the search criteria further while viewing results you’ve already selected. If you want to adjust the search criteria, click View All to display the full list of search results.

Working with selected properties
Selecting properties enables you to generate reports or export data. When you’ve selected one or more properties from the search results list, the Multi Property Activities bar will appear at the bottom of the screen. From this bar, you can:
- save your list of selected properties
- create a Report based on the current tab: see our Generating Reports article for more information.
- export the results data to a CSV file
- add the selected properties to My Watch List in Property Monitor.
