The step-by-step guide to saving your first search on NickMcLeanRealEstate.com
If your looking for the best deals the saved search feature will give you a huge advantage!
How? Because when you have saved searches you will be instantly alerted when a new property hits the market or a specific property has a price reduction. You won’t be late for the party anymore!
Here’s how to set up a saved search so you can be notified of the newest properties that meet or exceed your criteria before anyone else.
Bonus: you can set up as many saved searches as you want!
The first thing you need to do is sign in or create an account if you haven’t already.
It is really simple and won’t take hardly any time.
Now let’s do a search.
Enter desired location first.
Let’s just say I’m searching for a home in Wenatchee, but you can enter any address or any location you want throughout Washington state.
Next, establish the price range that your interested in.
I recommend you bracket your price range. (example 600,000-1,000,000)
Pro-tip- You want to look at homes that are below your price range and slightly above your price range because prices can fluctuate and price reductions will happen. This means that homes originally listed 50,000 above your price range could drop into your price range and you need to know about them before they drop into your range. Also, you can always make an offer below the list price and negotiate a lower price.
If you don’t expand your price range, you might miss out on some really good deals.
Enter the type of home your looking for.
You can choose from:
Homes (Single Family)
Land & Lots
What I like to do is set up a saved search with specific criteria based on the type of property. For example, I would set up a saved search for land in Chelan priced between 100,000 and 250,000 and another one for multi-family homes in Wenatchee priced between 200,000 and 700,000. That way I can set my criteria to exactly what I am willing to pay for each type of property I am interested in.
How many Beds and Baths?
Enter the number of Bedrooms and Bathrooms you are looking for.
Pro-tip- With bathrooms keep in mind that if you put 2 bathrooms a home with 1.5 bathrooms won’t show up.
Get as specific as you want.
By going to the “More” tab, you can enter:
Square footage range
Year built range
number of Days on site
Number of stories
If you want to get even more specific, click the “More Options” tab at the bottom of the “More” tab to select special features such as:
Much much more…too many to list here check it out for yourself.
Time to save your first search.
Once you have entered all the criteria you want go to the button under the search bar and select “Save This Search”. When you hit this button, it’s going to ask you to name your search.
Next, I’m going to enter my email address, this is where I want to be notified. Finally, you can choose how often you want to be alerted. Instantly, Daily or Weekly. If you are looking for the hottest deals we recommend instantly because time kills deals.
Congratulations! You have just saved your first search.
To manage or view your saved searches go to the Saved searches tab at the top of the page. Here you can also change the frequency of your alerts.
It doesn’t cost you anything.
