By far one of the most accurate ways to see property listings in our area is through a custom MLS (Multiple Listings Service) portal. Most the Foreclosure lists you find on the Internet are horribly inaccurate! Most internet sites use a third party IDX console to search listings. These IDX consoles utilize an FTTP service that is provided by our local MLS for free. The problem is, the FTTP service does not allow the third party IDX to search each specific metric (foreclosures being one of them). In order for an IDX console to be accurate and search specifically for foreclosures, it must apply for a "RETS" feed from the MLS. This RETS feed can be costly and an evasive process, therefore most third party IDX consoles do not opt for a RETS feed. What does this mean in plain English? Most the searches that are provided on the internet for foreclosures are NOT ACCURATE at all! You may be seeing data that is out dated, contingent, or not even a foreclosure!
I solve this for my clients by signing them up for their own custom MLS portal account. I enter your specific set of criteria into the MLS and the MLS emails you every time there is a new listing or price reduction that comes on the market. The listing details, pictures and description are emailed to you directly from the MLS. It is very accurate because it is the same MLS service realtors use! It is not a third party software, it is directly from the MLS.
This service is completely free of charge and can be changed, edited, or deactivated at any time. It is truly a great tool for prospective buyers and investors. Just fill in the information below and I will have you set up immediately. The only thing I ask, is that if you find my information useful and decide to pursue property in our area, you please allow me to help represent you in your purchase. Thank you and have fun with your new custom MLS portal....
