Speed Bar

Description: The Speed Bar is a multipurpose searching tool will allow you to run a search from any screen. 


The Speed Bar accepts two types of input:

  • Speed Bar Shorthand: a series of simple codes entered in the Speed Bar. Matrix translates your entries into search criteria and runs the corresponding search.
  • Speed Bar Shortcuts: any Matrix search that you’ve SAVED AS a Speed Bar shortcut. Enter its name in the Speed Bar and Matrix runs that saved search.

Shorthand Tips:

  • Keep it simple; letter case doesn’t matter
  • Combine your Shorthand codes in any order (except for bedrooms and bathrooms)
  • Put spaces between Shorthand codes, not commas
  • Check the criteria on the results page to ensure Matrix searched for what you asked for
