This might be a good place to collect various tricks for using RM more effectively.

Usually RM hides the CGI From data, but this can be unmasked by viewing a house followed by hitting the ‘back to results’ button. The search script is happy to take these as part of the URL, so, obviously, you can tailor your own search options and, interestingly, not have to be strictly limited to those provided on the web page. B)


Get a correct price distribution without double counting the boundaries: number between £100k and £120k but excluding the boundary, e.g. mi_p=100000&ma_p=119999

and so on ...

Parameters provided on the page:

l_up=<nndays> # added in nn days

lo_u= # not sure, user session id?

lo_n=<location text> # location text, use a '+' for a space

se_t=<nn.d miles, max=40.0> # search radius

nh_st=<1=all,2=new home,3=new home> # new homes


mi_b=3 # min bedrooms (but see below)

p_t=1 # property type 1=house,2=flats,. Etc.

mi_p=<min price>

ma_p=<max price>



re_s=price # force re-sort by lowest price

Edit: the ma_b (max bedroom) seemed to work earlier but doesn't now - possible mistake? :unsure:
