This week, Zillow began providing a powerful tool to enhance the home shopping experience for our visitors by offering Saved Search e-mail alerts. After conducting a search for homes on Zillow and choosing the specific criteria you are interested in, you can save these searches and receive regular e-mails alerting you to new homes that are added to Zillow that fit what you are looking for.
These alerts can be received daily or weekly, and are an effective way to monitor the homes that are added to the market if you’re currently looking to purchase a new home. For others, it’s a great way to keep track of the real estate activity in your neighborhood by creating e-mail alerts for Recently Sold and Make Me Move homes. You can also share the search results with your friends by e-mailing them the results you find directly from the site.
To receive Saved Search e-mail alerts, simply conduct a search for a city or neighborhood on Zillow and add the filters your most interested in. Once you have narrowed down what you are looking for, you can sign up by selecting E-mail Alerts in the right-hand top corner of the map or just below it, or in Tools section to the left. If you would like to share your search results with a friend, just select the “Send to a friend link” in the Tools section.
Whether you are a home buyer or watching the market trends, these new email alerts are a great tool to keep up with new homes added to the market on regular basis.
