How to use the browser
The search engine is a tool for orientation within the wide range of offers from CENTRAL GROUP. Use the search engine to browse through real estate that completely matches your expectations. For a successful search, you can use a combination of all functions of the search engine, which are described below.
1Selection of project
Individual locations are grouped according to community. You can select one or more locations at one time by checking them off individually or you can choose all locations by checking the option “select all areas”. You can cancel this option by again checking various locations at random. Red-highlighted entries indicate a new listing.
The layout is divided by the number of rooms. For example, the selection does not distinguish between a two-bedroom unit (3+) with a combined living room and kitchen or separate kitchen space, etc. This means that by checking (3+) the search results will include all types of layouts with two bedrooms and living room, and this includes studios and maisonettes. More types of layouts can be indicated for the search results.
The price range is defined in terms of “from/to” for a certain amount. This option limits the search results to the selected price ceiling. For example, if you select up to CZK 2,000,000, the search results will include all property from the lowest price to the selected amount of CZK 2,000,000.
The completion date is a timestamp that focuses the search results in terms of completing the property. The listing distinguishes real estate between “completed” and “under construction”. Properties under construction are then categorized in the listing after six-month periods according to the current offer. The default setting is set for the longest completion date.
5Internal floor area
The floor area of the apartment is divided according to the floor area of the apartment. Several sizes can be chosen or simply the option “Floor area is secondary”. More options can be indicated for the search results.
The default setting is “Accessories are secondary”, but accessories such as Balcony/Loggia, Terrace, Front lawn, Cellar and Parking space can be selected. The search results will be limited to your choice of accessories.
The search results can be reduced by setting the floor area.
8Orientation of the habitable rooms
The orientation of rooms is divided according to cardinal points. When selecting one of the cardinal points, apartments with at least one room matching the orientation of the selected cardinal point will be displayed during the search. More types of orientation can be indicated for the search results.
9Setting of menu format
Press the button to inquire about properties based on the selected criteria. The search results are displayed in a table on the same page under these criteria. After finding all properties matching your criteria, the pages will automatically jump to the beginning of the search results table.
10Overview of areas on the map
This overview of the areas on the map of Prague and the surrounding area shows the current locations on offer. The map only acts as a visual overview of locations in and around Prague.
How to use the result of the sorting
Information within the table for results of the search may be sorted in ascending order by the relevant data primarily being the subject of interest. The sorting of the results of the search can be performed in two modes. The first preset mode is the ‘sorting of the results of the search in basic form’ when it may only be sorted by singular specification (column). The second mode, the ‘sorting of results of the search in an advanced form’ offers sorting by up to three types of specifications (columns) at once.
1Sorting the search results in the Quick Search tab
By sorting the search results in this basic manner, only one type of data is sorted, i.e. only the data of one randomly selected column from the table. The default setting sorts the search results by total cost.
Furthermore, sorting may be done according to these columns from the table of the results of the search:
- Total price
- Floor area
- Completion date
- Name of the project
- Housing block
2Sorting the search results in the Quick Search tab
Here you can sort the data in the table of search results according to any three columns at once. Sorting is based on the principle of gradual reduction. 1) First sort the ascending items according to the first selected column, 2) next sort the differences (if any) within this range according to the second selected column 3) and then sort the remaining differences (if any) according to the third selected column. The selected columns and their priorities can be randomly combined. The default setting is sorting the search results by total cost.
If the results of the search contain many items, it is necessary to divide their listings into pages.
The module of paging has several functions:
- information on the total number of found items
- information on the total number of pages of the listing
- info about the range of items displayed
- change in the number of items per one page
- movement through pages forwards and backwards
1Number of items
This displays the total number of items that correspond with the search criteria.
2Number of current page from the total number
This displays the number of the current page from the total number of pages. The number of pages depends on the selection of the number of lines per page.
3Selection of number of lines per page
It is possible to set 10, 30, 50, 70 or 90 lines per page. To have the selection changed, it is necessary to confirm this with the "SEARCH" button.
