With every week, total price is price of all weeks together.
Ignoring availability - show all listings regardless of availability
Not rented - show listings that aren't rented from x to y (including those
not available)

To search for a single week availability- Enter the desired rate for a single week and enter the desired date. CHRIS can also find an avaialable week within any date range. Just enter the date range and make sure "available any time" is selected.
To search for a multi-week availability (2 or more available weeks in a row)- Enter the total rate for all weeks (e.g. $1600 for 2 x $800 per week), enter the desired date range and then select "available every week".

CHRIS will also perform the availability search with other criteria as well. After entering the rate and dates you may also select form the other search criteria such as Location, Structure, Style, City, # of bedrooms. Then click on the search button and CHRIS will find the rental listings that meet all of your criteria.

Please note that you may select multiple amenities by holding down the Ctrl key on the keyboard while you click on the amenities.

Click on the search button to find your rental listings. If no listings meet your criteria, you will be informed so. Use the search button to return you to the search screen. When your search is complete, you will be taken to the listings screen. You will see the number of listings that met your search criteria just above the Listing Info area. You may browse through all of the found listings by using the VCR-style buttons at the top of the screen. The listings are always in numerical order by listing number.

Troubleshooting Search Problems

JavaScript : The search screen makes use of JavaScript to implement some features. Your browser may not support JavaScript, or you may have it disabled. Netscape 3.0 and higher and Internet Explorer 4.0 and higher should work fine as long as you have left JavaScript enabled.

To enable JavaScript in Netscape 7, go to Edit-Preferences and click the triangle next to Advanced. Then click on Scripts & Plugins. Check the checkbox next to Navigator. Click OK.

Cookies : The technology we are using to implement searching uses session cookies. If you have disabled cookies in your browser, the search will likely not work correctly. The cookies we are sending to your browser uniquely identify your browser to our server and should be removed from your browser when you close it.

Caching : Most web browsers are configured to cache, or store a local copy of, web sites that you visit. Some Internet Service Providers (such as AOL) implement caching on their own servers to cut down on the amount of traffic that is sent over their Internet connection. If caching is not working correctly, you will see the old cached copy of the Web site instead of the newest copy. If you keep seeing the same Web page when you navigate the site or the data you are looking at is outdated, you are probably experiencing a caching problem. Try pressing the "Reload" (Netscape) or "Refresh" (IE) button on your Web browser to tell your browser to load the latest copy of the site off of the Web.
