A Great App to Search for Homes

August 18, 2016 1:00 pm

UnknownOne of the tools that I offer to my customers and real estate partners is a free app called Home Scouting®. I would love to tell you more about how this great app can make all the difference in your home search.

The Home Scouting® MLS Mobile app, provided by Home Buyers Marketing II, Inc., allows you to search 100% of MLS listings in your area. You can search for homes via city/town, ZIP code, price range, proximity and even school district! Each listing has complete tax information, photographs of the property, automatic notifications if the price is reduced, and satellite imagery – it even has built-in navigation if you are cruising around town and need directions to the property.

One advantage of using this application over other apps is that your personal information is kept private. You can now search for properties without your email address and phone number being sold to multiple real estate agents and lenders. Public real estate sites like Zillow and Trulia sell your information – Home Scouting® does not. No more pesky phone calls from people you don’t know or trust!

Another advantage is that Home Scouting® gives you the ability to see 100% of the homes available in your area. Zillow and Trulia only have access to about 60% of the homes that are actually listed, and some of their information is not accurate. They may show you results of properties no longer listed (sold), incorrect sales prices, and inaccurate property tax information. Home Scouting® is updated daily so that when price changes occur or a home is sold, you know.

ING_38192_02943-2I encourage you to explore the Home Scouting® MLS Mobile app. Again, it is FREE and your data is kept PRIVATE.

How to sign up:

  • Go to the App Store (iPhone) or Google Play (Android)
  • Search for Home Scouting
  • Download and install the app
  • Enter my VIP Code
  • Create a login and password

By signing up, you will also receive a free, monthly email service called Sold Home Alert®. With Sold Home Alert®, my clients are informed of homes that have sold in their neighborhood and the prices those homes sold for. Until now, this information wasn’t easily available to homeowners. Use it to keep track of your property’s value and current investment.

If I can answer any questions, please let me know. I am happy to share my VIP Code with you so that you can start using this great service!
