Problems With Your Real Estate Agent Reaching You By E-mail?

Email From Your Real Estate AgentI have a lot of buyers on automatic updates from the local MLS. Buyers get updates within minutes of every new home listing added to the MLS or price changes for homes fitting their search criteria. Automatic updates help keep my customers ahead of the game in Real Estate. They check these updates any time they have access to a computer or from their phones. With the way business has been going, automatic property updates get them to the property in time to view and write an offer, but as usual, many sellers wait a few days for other offers to put buyers in a bidding war, and as with any market, the best deals go quick.

 

There is one problem I have seen with automatic updates. One popular company offering free E-mail addresses put a block on MLS listings. To get around this problem, I have my customers sign up for a a Google account, which is also free. I am not sure why an E-mail service would choose to block MLS updates. Maybe because they have their own home search web site. But is it fair for a big company to block independent agents and mess around with their income? I don’t like the attitude of trying to make money at any cost. If only people knew how much some of these companies mess around with an agent’s ability to make a living. Maybe they would stop using some of these national services and search for the local Real Estate Agent and service they really need.

I have a house listed for sale and I'm getting MLS * Trulia AND Zillow updates - sort of tedious IMHO...again, I think this is very self-serving for them and their data-mining efforts

That is another good point. All the national web sites play the numbers game more than we can imagine. The more hits they get, the more they will charge, The funny thing about that situation is, people paying for advertising on those sites are working to increase traffic.... hence, people advertising on these sites are working their buns off so they can pay more money next year to advertise.
