A new home-search Web site, launched by Alexandria, Va.-based DROdio Real Estate Inc., allows prospective buyers to search for specific keywords in the multiple listing service description.

TheBestHomeSearchEver.com offers detailed searches of Greater Washington, D.C., area property listings information supplied by MRIS, one of the nation’s largest MLSs. As of 10:40 a.m. Eastern Time today, the MLS had 83,007 homes listed for sale in the region.

Daniel Rubén Odio-Páez, owner and managing broker for DROdio Real Estate, noted in an announcement that two property listings contained the word “sexy” in the description as of Oct. 19, while 4,274 home descriptions contained the word “metro,” 218 listings included the word “dead,” 1,141 listings used the word “potential,” and 2,543 listings had “motivated” sellers.

The Web site, which also can be viewed at TBHSE.com, also allows users to select a price range and to search for homes that have been on the market for a certain number of days. Investors can search for “fixer-upper” and “rehab” homes, according to the announcement.

“Our service is the first ever to allow users the ability to search listing notes. Even Realtors don’t have this ability,” Odio said in a statement. DROdio Real Estate earlier launched BirdsEyeSearch.com, a site that displays MLS listings on a Google-based map.

“We want users to be able to search at their own pace and engage us on their schedule,” Odio said. The company loans out a GPS device to clients who want to view homes on their own and also offers a rebate program for clients.
