Custom Home Search The property-search tools available to today’s buyers are numerous, maybe too numerous. The most efficient way to access the MLS data is to have a real estate agent set up a custom home search for you. You will then receive listing data directly from the MLS and be provided with information that may not be available on many Basic Home Search sites. Contact us today for your own custom search. It’s free and requires no commitment.
Our buyers initially use the following search criteria for their MLS home search:
- type of home (single family, town home …)
- minimum number of bedrooms, baths, and car garages
- maximum price range
- location (defined by city, freeway boundaries, distance from work…)
Once our buyers start getting a better feel for what’s available they sometimes have us refine their search with the following criteria:
- minimum square footage
- type of sale (regular, foreclosure, short sale)
- school district
Your MLS home search will find any listings that match your search criteria and send you an email at your convenience. Some buyers like who won’t be moving for a while like to get the monthly updates, while buyers who are getting pretty close to picking a home get daily and even instant updates. Whichever frequency you prefer, you’ll get access to your own MLS portal which will keep track of which homes you’ve already looked at…along with a Favorites, Possibilities and Discard folder to better help you sort through all the listings.
