Thanks to modern technology and the changing consumer landscape, the process of buying a home these days begins online. For this, you can thank the ease and immediate gratification afforded by the Internet. Those who have already started the process of buying a home know that competition can be fierce. Hesitation, or even one missed phone call from your areal estate gent, can mean a missed opportunity of a lifetime. Now, those who are just starting the home hunt can get a leg up with two new tools launched by RE/MAX, which are designed to make shopping the market more convenient, more customizable and more competitive – and they’re available with the simple click of a button on REMAX.ca.
RE/MAX Radar is a new listing notification tool offered on REMAX.ca, designed to create a customized and curated experience for the consumer. The tool will push new listings to homebuyers, who can now opt to receive email notifications when a listing that matches their personal saved search is added on REMAX.ca. An email will be sent every morning at 6 a.m., as new listings within the search criteria appear online.
The next step to buying a home is seeing it in person. Alongside every listing on REMAX.ca, the new Schedule A Viewing button lets consumers reach out to the listing agent, identify whether they prefer weekends or weekdays, mornings or afternoons, and add comments. The listing agent will then be notified via email that a viewing has been requested.
