As one of the premier brokerages in SLO county we work with buyers from all over the world on a DAILY basis. The single most thought on buyers minds in this market is how the get "THE BEST DEAL POSSIBLE". Often times they think the Foreclosures or even Short Sales are the lowest priced properties on the market, and often times they are correct. However, there are traditional sellers and investors that are financially motivated to settle for some amazing prices and thus resulting in some incredible deals for our buyers. The important thing to remember, is to not rule out any properties based on whether it is a Foreclosure, Short Sale, or Traditional seller. There are deals in all three categories, you just have to find them!
Probably the most important thing to consider when looking at purchasing a property, other than having an experienced, aggressive, motivated, articulate, and knowledgeable agent....is to have ACCURATE and TIMELY information. It is one thing to search around the internet on agent websites to browse the MLS or to look at what your neighbor's house sold for or to dream about that 40 acres coastal property on the beach with twelve bedrooms and a home theater. But, if you are seriously looking at purchasing your next property or investment, you have to get off the Realtor websites and get signed up directly on an MLS Portal!
Most of the Property Searches you find on the Internet are horribly inaccurate! If you want accurate property searches and lists, you have found the right place! Most internet sites use a third party IDX console to search listings. Most of these IDX consoles utilize a FTTP service that is provided by our local mls (multiple listing service) for free. The problem is, the FTTP service does not allow the third party IDX to search each specific metric. Take foreclosures for example. 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 invasive process, therefore most third party IDX consoles do not opt for a RETS feed. What does this mean in plain English? Most of 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!
If you would like to have a "REAL TIME" Portal DIRECTLY from our MLS, we can set you up with a custom MLS portal of your very own. You will see Listings even before most agents do. We can enter your basic criteria into the MLS and set you up on your own custom MLS portal that can be specific to Foreclosures or Short Sales or traditional listings or all of the above. This information will come directly from the MLS, which is updated many times a day. Whenever a new listing is input into the MLS by an agent or when a price is increased or decreased on a property that matches your criteria, you will be emailed. If you are serious about purchasing property in this market, this is by far one of the best notification portals you can have! You need to see the inventory and great deals before anyone else does!
This service is absolutely FREE to our clients and carries NO obligation. We can custom tailor your criteria and change it anytime. We can have this portal set up in minutes and you can be reviewing property immediately. All that we ask, is that if you see a property you are interested in, you please contact us and give us the opportunity to represent you.
After you enjoy our MLS search links and have your Custom MLS portal set up, if you have any questions what so ever, please contact us. We are available in person or via email or by phone 7 days a week. Feel free to contact us anytime with any questions or concerns what so ever.
