Home Buying Tip #3 – Use technology to your advantage

Home Buying Tip #3 – Use  technology to your advantage

Tech can beat your competitors (other buyers)

Now you have your needs sheet. Give this sheet to your experienced realtor or broker. They can set you up a internet portal with MLS (MULTIPLE LISTING SERVICE) that updates you immediately.

What does it do?

If a home is newly listed and falls within your parameters then boom it alerts you. If a current home listed changes it’s criteria like for example price and now it’s in your price range the boom you get alerted.

Here are some options to tell your agent.

  • Alert frequency .. immediately, daily, weekly, monthly
  • Concierge service… Have agent view them first and agent can refine even more.

I'm Allen ... nice to meet you. I was born and raised here in the Houston Heights. I went to school here from Elementary to High School and off to U of H. I love to blog, although i'm not that great at it. It's much harder then I thought. I like to play chess, meditate, read and enjoy fishing too (one time I caught a big shark!). My grandpa bought his house on 26th street for $55K in 1965 on a double lot, can you believe that?! Things sure have changed here for the better. I like to inspire folks with positive messages, and I hope to change the world. I volunteer at Divina Providence church too helping abused children. Someone helped me (Mr. Leonard Davis) years ago, so i'm paying the universe back. I was a kid with little direction, and left home at 14 years old. I never had a father, or father figure, in fact I never even seen a picture of my father. I was raised by my mother, who happens to be lesbian. She did her absolute best, but with food stamps & section 8, she can only do so much. Surrounded with turmoil & drugs all around me, somehow I might it thru. I think seeing how drugs can affect a person with my own two eyes, really scared me as a child. So it's fair to say i've had my fair share of problems. I don't share these issues to make you sad, I hope that it reaches a child out there to inspire him or her. That you can make something of yourself, even when you are given the worst situations. I also hope to inspire you, with wishes that you will take one minute just to take notice of that child / teenager and really try to talk with him. Not preach to him, but to talk to him. Conversate and ask him, why are you doing the things you are doing... then add some insight about how a different life if possible. These are my wishes and hopes... let's change the world together! Luckily by the grace of God, Mr. Davis helped me. He was a pasture at a church, & took notice of me. It is super strange how one single person, can change the universe. Thank God
