You’ve Got Mail


If you’re planning to buy or sell a home you’ve likely spent time on Realtor.ca getting to know the market. Initially it can be a lot of fun house hunting online, however, in time 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, ones that had 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.

1. 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, then this is valuable tool. You can save time and stay up to date with the market!
2. You have very specific search criteria. Let’s say you need a 5-bedroom, 3-bathroom home. Unless you find this specific home, you have no reason to move. An automatic search saves you from sifting through all the 3-bedroom homes that simply do not fit your 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, we can set up a search that includes listings on that street only which will be emailed to you.
3. 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, and organized when buying or selling a home. If you aren’t already committed to a Realtor and want to be set up on an automatic search, contact us. It is always our highest honour to help you in any way we can!
