One of the strengths of sophisticated real estate search engines is their ability to combine a large number of criteria into a single limited search result. True the more complex the criteria the longer the search may take, nonetheless the limited results are oftentimes truly worth the expended computer cycles in savings of your own time.
One of the search difficulties often encountered by home buyers in a particular market is that the public interfaces presented to internet users often do not present the full capability of the underlying search engine. Our own Huntsville Alabama MLS search engine also does not present its full capability in its public interface. This is due to the desire to make property searches as simple as possible for the general public.
We have done special requests for customers and clients on a number of occasions, some of them have even involved tweaking changes to our property database to facilitate special requests. Two such search parameters, Max Square Foot Price and Min Days on Market, came from one such customer who was searching for investment properties in the Huntsville area. We were able, from his input, to put together a few custom searches which he then saved and set up automatic email notification of new listings exactly meeting his established criteria.
True the typical home shopper may not be a real estate investor; however you may very well have some special criteria that you are unable to utilize via the public interface. If so, please don’t hesitate to email us your desired search criteria and we would be more than happy to set this type of Automated MLS Search within your user account.
