How do you use Draw A Search?

Conceived over a pint and brought to life at our first ever developer ‘hack-a-thon’ back in July 2010, ‘Draw A Search’ has without a doubt earned its place in our trophy cabinet.

This feature, allowing property seekers to draw a custom search area, has proved to be one of our most popular yet and we were staggered to last week find out that there have now been over 1 million drawn search areas created (well to be precise, there are 1,117,410)!

So how are Rightmove users using Draw A Search to find their dream home?

We took a look through the draw-a-search archives for a sneak peak to find out just that!
