You’ve Got Mail
If you’re a researcher and are planning to buy or sell a home, you’ve likely spent lots of time on Realtor.ca getting to know what homes are for sale in what areas and at what price.
It can be a lot of fun in the beginning as you seek out a home search, however, after a while it can become a tedious chore trying to keep up with all the data.
Did you know that we have the ability to send you an email alert notifying you of any listing updates in the past 24 hours?
If you want to get the most out of your time and research, we highly recommend getting set up on an automatic email search.
How do you do that? It’s easy! Email or call your Realtor (or us if you don’t already have one), share your search criteria (how many bedrooms, bathrooms, garage etc.) and price range. We can set up a search on our MLS system that automatically emails you any time a property within your specific interests and price range comes onto the market. This includes brand new listings, those listings hat have expired and are back on the market, and any price changes to previous listings.
An auto email responder is most helpful when you are in one of the following three positions.
- You’re 3-6 months away from buying or selling. If you’re not yet ready to buy or sell, however you want to educate yourself on the market this is very valuable tool to use. That way you don’t feel like you’re using too much time while still staying current with market updates.
- You have very specific search criteria. Let’s say you need a 4-bedroom home above grade. Unless you find this kind of home, you have no reason to move. Because four bedrooms on the upper level is harder to find, setting up on an automatic search saves you a ton of time from sifting through all the 3-bedroom homes that simply will not fit your family’s needs. Or let’s say you don’t need to move but would love to be on a specific street backing a lake. In this case, you can set up in your search a ‘street name’ and only homes that come up for sale on that street will be emailed to you.
- The home you want is a ‘fast sell’. Properties that are lower priced, fully developed, renovated and with a garage are some of the fastest selling homes on the market. In some markets, they can sell faster than you can find them. This is why you want to know about these homes ASAP so that you can be among the first few potential buyers walking through the door.
Email alerts help you stay up to date, educated, focused and organized when buying or selling a home. They are a very valuable tool whether you’re in the market to buy, sell, or soon to do either. If you aren’t already committed to a Realtor and want to be set up on an automatic search, email, call or text us. It is always our highest honour to help you in any way we can!
