When you’re shopping for a home, you never want to find out that a great property, within your price range, just sold – and you didn’t even know about the listing! How did you miss it? After all, aren’t all homes listed for sale easily found online?

While it’s true that most listings are on MLS, it’s still possible to miss out on a home for any number of reasons. Here are just a couple:

  • A home in a popular neighborhood goes up for sale and there are interested buyers even before the listing appears on MLS.
  • There are many homes for sale in an area and, while sifting through all the listings, you miss one that turns out to be a gem.

It can be frustrating, even heart breaking, to miss out on a property that could have been ideal for you. So, when you’re looking for your next dream home, arrange to be alerted immediately to new listings that match your criteria.
