This last week, the Greater Denton/Wise County Association of Realtors upgraded the software for the Multiple Listing Service (MLS). For those not familiar, this is the real estate database used by agents. When your house goes on the market through an agent, this is where the agent will list the property. It is used to search for properties for buyers as well.
One of the best features of the new upgrade, at least in my opinion, is the enhancement of the auto emails for prospective buyers and sellers. As an agent, I can set up a search on the MLS that will search for property based on the criteria you give me. Every time a property comes on the market fitting your criteria, you will get an email.
Here is an example of one that I set up for myself.
As you can see from the screen shot, you are presented with an array of data along with a map to show you the locations of the properties. It is so much better than the old feature, which only gave you textual information. It is a much richer experience.
I have set these up for several of my customers to help them keep their fingers on the pulse of the real estate market. It works extremely well, even for those individuals who are only thinking about buying or selling, and are a few months away from doing so.
