Home > Linking to Nestoria

So you want to link to Nestoria?

Perhaps you want to send the link for 2 bedroom flats in Camden, to your partner or fellow property-searcher?

You'll be happy to know that we thought about this, and it's nice and easy to do (honestly).

Creating the link

The link for a basic search has 4 main sections:

http://www.nestoria.co.uk/notting-hill/flat/buy/
               1               2        3    4  
1. Nestoria's main address
2. The area (or postcode); spaces are replaced with dash e.g. notting-hill
3. The property type:
flat:search only for flats
house:search only for houses
property:search for both flats and houses
4. Whether you are looking to buy or rent:
buy:search for properties for sale
rent:search for properties to rent

Adding search filters

Sometimes a basic search might not produce a usefully small number of results.

Suppose we then wanted to limit the search so that we found properties with a minimum of 2 bedrooms; we would add the following to the end of the basic search link (without the inverted commas):

5. /bedrooms-2 - This means 'with a minimum of 2 bedrooms'
6. /maxbed-3 - This means 'with a maximum of 3 bedrooms'

We can also limit the search to a price range:

7. /maxprice-400000 - Where 400000 is the maximum price
8. /minprice-300000 - Where 300000 is the minimum price

and there's the ability to filter by number of bathrooms

9. /bathrooms-2 - Where 2 is the minimum number of bathrooms

you can also restrict the results to only listings with (or without) certain keywords

10. /with-garden,balcony - Where garden,balcony is a comma seperated list of valid keywords
11. /without-excouncil - Where excouncil is a comma seperated list of valid keywords

the full list of valid keywords can be found on the Nestoria API page

Putting it all together

So, using the above, a fully defined search might be one that goes to our site (1), searches in fulham (2) for flats (3) to buy (4), which have a minimum of 2 bedrooms (5) and cost less than £400,000 (7)

http://www.nestoria.co.uk/fulham/flat/buy/bedrooms-2/maxprice-400000
               1          2       3    4     5           7
