Alright, I am going to delve into the topic of RSS. What is RSS? It has been given many different meanings since it's creation, but for sake of keeping things simple, it stands for "Real Simple Syndication". Basically, if you want to stay informed of updated information from a website, blog, e-newsletter etc., you can subscribe to an RSS feed of that source if they have it available.
I have found many uses for RSS that has literally saved me days of my life. For example, I use Google's customized home page and fill it with RSS feeds that give me everything I care to stay updated on. I have a page for all of my friends and families blogs, one page to feed my sport addiction, and another page for general news and misc items. I can literally check all blogs, news and sports in just a few minutes, rather than visiting every site individually. It takes forever just getting all the information to load if you are visiting sites one at a time, not to mention trying to remember the different sites and their addresses. Sure, you can bookmark or add sites to favorites, but then again you are back to visiting sites one at a time. Not very life saving.
Here is why this is important, and the many ways this Logan Utah Real Estate site uses RSS.
First off, you can subscribe to this site and have all of the Logan Utah real estate news, mortgage news, updated rates and other information delivered right to your inbox, rss reader or my preferred, Google home page.
Second, and perhaps most important for anyone looking to buy a home in or near Logan Utah. When you use our Utah Search tool, just by searching you are automagically set up to receive updated property information for homes or properties similar to what you searched for. This is an incredibly powerful tool. If you search for homes between 150-200k, in Logan, with 3+ bedrooms, and just don't find anything that peaks your interest, no worries, because when another home is listed that meets that criteria, you get an email. This allows you to be one of the first to know about the Logan Utah property and enables you to make the first offer, beating out the competition.
You can also use this tool to save favorite properties that you want to keep an eye on. An additional feature that other sites don't provide is that when you revisit the site to search, it remembers what your search criteria was the last time, and auto fills the form, saving you time an providing convenience (only when using the same computer).
Below is a screenshot of my Google home page that demostrates how I use RSS for my sports information. I highly suggest you use Google home pages, I highly recommend that you add this site, and I highly recommend you use the search tool from this site, and you can literally save days of your life, and possibly get you the home of your dreams before someone else gets it first.
