The Spanish real estate portal Fotocasa has launched a tool that lets its users search for properties by the time taken to travel to a selected destination.

Users can input an address, a mode of transport and a desired travel time to the location and then search for properties within the radius generated by the new tool. The idea is to provide convenience for the increasing number of home hunters for whom the morning commute is a primary concern.

According to a press release, Fotocasa's tool is already live both on the portal's website and app and will soon take into account live traffic estimates. The tool is being promoted with a TV ad campaign featuring a student looking to find a place to rent closer to her university.

The feature is new to the Spanish market and currently only a handful of portals globally allow users to search by travel time to a given destination.

Adevinta-owned Fotocasa is widely considered the number two portal in the Spanish market in terms of traffic behind rival Idealista.
