UnlistedHomes.com launches first universal ChatGPT-powered real estate search engine

July 18, 2023

Dayton startup UnlistedHomes.com, the leading off-market real estate platform, launched the first universal AI-powered home search engine. All users can now find their next home using natural language.

The technology is backed by ChatGPT, an advanced artificial intelligence (AI) tool developed by OpenAI.

“Unlisted is thrilled to be the first real estate technology to offer ChatGPT-enabled home search to all our users,” Unlisted founder and CEO Katie Hill said. “This innovation aligns with our commitment to connect people and real estate in all new ways to create more opportunities for buyers, sellers, agents, and the industry as a whole.”

This development marks a significant milestone in property search. It allows buyers to find their dream homes using conversational search terms instead of toggling filters. For example, “Show me homes with 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms between $750,000 and $900,000 in Upper Arlington, OH.”

Real estate search capabilities have not changed significantly since property listings moved online 15+ years ago. Historically, online home search engines have limited users to selecting criteria one attribute at a time, often requiring seven or more specifications before revealing search results. Unlisted’s ChatGPT integration provides a more streamlined mechanism where users simply type a description of the home they desire into an open text box.

The software then translates users’ words into complex queries of UnlistedHomes.com’s massive database of more than 121M homes in the U.S. The result is a list of homes curated specifically for the buyer.

“Unlisted’s ChatGPT integration represents one example of the immense potential of AI technology to revolutionize the real estate industry,” Unlisted CTO Henri Hegemier said. “We’re demonstrating a very practical application of large language models, helping users find their ideal homes more efficiently and intuitively than ever before.”

This isn’t the first example of Unlisted’s non-traditional approach to real estate. Since launching in 2022, Unlisted continues to be the only residential real estate platform giving attention to off-market properties instead of properties listed for sale nationally. Unlisted allows buyers to find off-market homes they like and send personal notes and care packages with treats like chocolate bars and cookies to the homes’ owners. Owners are then able to respond to buyers through a secure and anonymous chat at UnlistedHomes.
