Those of you that have been reading my blog for awhile know I’ve complained a bit in the past about the MLS system us Realtors have on the Central Coast. Well, the new system that I was part of the evaluation team for is going live at the end of the month. It’s got a lot of cool stuff that I will be able to use to enhance the services I provide. For example, I will be implementing another MLS Search from my home page. This one will be current to the second. The MLS Search that I currently have on my site gets its database of listings updated once a day. For most of you, it won’t matter but I know when you are actively looking for a home, it may be beneficial to be able to get up-to-the-minute search results.
I also will be offering an enhanced “instant notification” service for new listings. I will be able to define a more precise search for you. For example, if you only wanted to receive new listings for a particular neighborhood, I will be able to set that up for you and have emails sent to you when a new listing appears in that neighborhood. Also, the system will check for new listings for you every 3 to 4 hours so you’ll know about a new listing faster than most realtors will! (the current instant notifcation checks once a day)
Other information I will be able to provide you is plat maps, aerial photos, and for you homeowners that are looking to sell, I will be able to put in a description of your home and immediately see if any other Realtors have buyers that are looking for a home like yours. Something nice to know before you put your home on the market!
