Buying Your First Home - Part 2

At RE/MAX Lakes Area Realty, we are in the business of making dreams come true, and for a lot of people, making a dream come true involves buying your first home. In order to help you with that decision, we’ve come up with a series of articles…useful tips that will help you be prepared when buying your first home. Check back here often for the next article in the series, and be sure to subscribe to our blog at the bottom of the page.

Tip Two: Using Advanced Search Tools for Home Buyers

If you are currently in the market for a home, you will find our RE/MAX Lakes Area Realty website at an excellent resource. The site is continually updated with new and valuable information to aid in your decision making process.

The search features allow you to filter thousands of listings based on attributes that you select. You can simply search for houses in a certain area and price range, or you can look for houses that fit your specific style. You can draw a map area and search that way if you want. If you know you want a log house with gas heat and a garage, you can get the results you're looking for. If you’re looking for a home on a specific lake, all you have to do is type in the name of the lake, and every listing that is currently on the market will be displayed for you to look at. Most real estate websites including the big well known national sites don't and can’t offer that degree of choice.

The favorite’s folder allows you to save the individual listings that you find appealing. You can save favorites from different searches, giving you the power to organize your favorite listings however you see fit. This is a great way to put in order those specific listings that interest you most. Again, you may save as many favorites as you wish.

With our email alert service, you can be updated via e-mail as to new listings that match the criteria of any saved search. You can also check out our “Hotlist” button for all of the new listings that just came on the market. You can do that as often as you like every day!

The agents at RE/MAX Lakes Area Realty always strive to make the home-buying process as smooth as possible. With the tools we provide and with the click of a mouse we can get you started in the right direction.
