    There are no clear or save buttons on my ipad view of Redfin—I’m stuck with center screen blocked by “draw an area to search” and cancel button at side just toggles between draw and cancel. How am I supposed to exit this unwanted option?

    Hi M,

    Sorry to hear you are having this experience with the app!

    Sometimes just resetting the device can resolve these types of issues.

    To reset:

    • Simply hold the power button until you see a "Swipe to turn off"
    • Swipe it off
    • Hit the power button to turn it back on

    If that isn't working, I would recommend uninstalling and re-installing the app. Please let me know if that solves the problem and if not, we can troubleshoot further.

    If you need additional help, just email us at

    Warm regards,
