Custom Searches - how they work & why they're better than searching on your own!

I can set up a search through MLS to help you look for your dream home. I can search by geographical boundaries, school district, square footage, number of bedrooms, age of home, list price, etc. This sets up a web "portal" for you, and you are notified by e-mail when anything new comes on the market that meets your search criteria. Once you receive the link, you click on it to view the properties that meet your criteria. You can then view photos and virtual tours, and basically preview homes before ever getting in your car. You can rank homes as "favorites, "possibilities," or "not considering." There is an area where you can write notes, for example, if you want to know how old the roof is or how long the property has been on the market. I can respond to you via the portal.

It's a great way to shop for homes, whether you're in a hurry to purchase or if you are just "looking." It helps you be aware of what's available in your price range, what homes are selling for in the area you want to purchase, and most valuable of all, it provides a pressure-free way to shop. The search can be modified at any time if the search results are not producing what you are truly looking for. When you find something you would like to see, just call or e-mail, and we'll set up a time.

So, if you'd like to send me the criteria for your search, I'm happy to set it up for you. The feature that I like the best is that we can truly search from Lewis to Harvard and 21st to 31st - if geographical boundaries are an important criteria for you. I'm not a pushy Realtor, so I really like how this search works - it allows you to go at your own pace.

If you're interested in me setting up a search, let me know your criteria and which e-mail address(es) you'd like to receive notifications. Contact me at 918-852-5036 or lcain@cctulsa.com!
