Buyers searching for Homes in Tallahassee

There are many websites available for buyers to search the internet for properties for sale anywhere. The problem with many of these sites can be that the homes are no longer available, or prices have changed, or something has changed.

The smart way to search is to use a local Realtor who can load your email address and your search criteria on the local Multiple Listing Service. Let's say you want a 3 bedroom, 2 bath, 2 car garage home in the northeast area of Tallahassee. The Realtor sets your email address so you receive all the properties presently on the market in that area meeting that criteria and after that initial emailing, you'll receive everything that comes on the market with that same criteria as soon as the Realtor inputs the information onto the Multiple Listing Service.

The benefit is that buyers get the newest properties available as soon as they become available. While that may not seem like such a big deal, if you've been looking for that "certain" home, you want to be sure and be one of the first to get notified it is now available.

It's estimated over 85% of buyers are looking on the internet for their home. Why keep searching when your search criteria can notify you when that house hits the market? Call me or email me to set you up for automatic notification. It's the way to house hunt!
