Did you know that on Redfin you can sign up to receive e-mails about what is happening with listings in the neighborhood you are house hunting in?
What I find this feature most useful for is tracking price reductions. But you can also use it to find out when new listings come on the market as well as when properties are sold. So how do you take advantage of this?
- Go to Redfin and log in
- Either search for your neighborhood or position the map over the area you are interested in
- Click ‘Save this search’
- Type in a name for your search and set your e-mail notification to something other than ‘Never’
- Wait for the e-mails
Now every day or week you will receive an e-mail from Redfin and the e-mail will let you know when the status or price of a listing changes. This is helpful to track price reductions, price increases, when listings get sold by seeing when their status changes to ‘subject to inspection’, when listings that were in ‘subject to inspection’ come back on the market, etc.
If there are other things you would like to track via e-mail please let us know in the comments and we will consider them in an upcoming release.
