COMING SOON ALERTS
COMING SOON ALERTS from the TRIANGLE MULTIPLE LISTING SERVICE – Stay up-to-date and be prepared when your favorite neighborhood has a NEW home hitting the market.
There are 2 ways to receive “alerts”.
1) You can register at the bottom of the page for updates. Let us set you up directly from our TMLS (Please only do this if you’re not working with an agent)
2) You can scroll down to the search, refine your search then “save search” to receive alerts from our IDX.
NOTE: You can save multiple searches and receive multiple alerts.
The first thing all buyers and sellers should understand is “Working with Agents” or Agency in North Carolina.
Why use Coming Soon home alert and our service?
1) Simply put, if you know a new listing is “Coming Soon” in Raleigh and Triangle area before it’s activated it’s clearly better than NOT having a clue…right?
2) NO NATIONAL REAL ESTATE WEBSITES HAVE AUTOMATED COMING SOON HOMES FROM THE TMLS (Triangle Multiple Listing Service) UNLESS THEY’RE A LICENSED FIRM IN NC!
3) Some agents have their own websites, web pages, or social media promotion for their Coming Soon listings but not all of them! Our rules require coming soon to be listing in TMLS within 48 hours of listing agreement.
4) When you get an alert you have interest in reach out to us and we’ll get more information!
5) Coming Soon alerts allow time for you to prepare for a quick offer by getting an early start on a strategy with your Buyers Agent, a Lender (pre-approval Letter), getting proof of funds together, comps, and potentially limiting due diligence period (not inspections) by researching the survey, permits, flood zones, area schools or crime rates before it becomes ACTIVE. Even if it’s just a five-day notice you have an advantage with Coming Soon Alerts!
6) During Coming Soon status, you cannot enter the home, although you can’t see it doesn’t mean you can’t buy it! Did you know people are actually buying homes without even getting inside to see the house because of Coming Soon listings?
7) Maybe you’re looking at another home in the area and NOT AWARE there’s a better one “Coming Soon”!
8) Maybe you’re a seller thinking about listing your home and there’s a Coming Soon in the neighborhood you didn’t even know existed!
9) Often these homes are getting updated so you can research what improvements are being made or maybe they’re in disrepair so you can get (rough) repair estimates. Any edge helps!
10) After you’ve registered for my Coming Soon Alerts you can request we find out when the home is expected to start showings. Any notice makes a huge difference! Your schedule is important and you may not be able to wait the day after it’s Active! Alerts help you plan ahead!
