More and more people are positioning themselves to take advantage of low interest rates and stable home prices. As the market heats up, home buyers are finding themselves in multiple offer situations or worse yet, they didn’t even know their perfect home was for sale until it was too late. Now more than ever it is important to be on your toes. One of the best ways to be “In the Know” is to sign up for an auto email service that emails you directly from the MLS as soon as a home hits the market. Too many buyers think they can just look daily on one of the big websites like Zillow or Trulia to see what’s new. In reality, those websites get their listings from local MLS feeds 48 to 72 hours after they are listed. That may be too late for some buyers, especially if they are looking for a home in a specific price range without sufficient inventory.
