One of the most powerful features of the Delco Realty Group website is the ability to create Saved Searches (as many as you want, in fact!) and autoMAGICALLY be emailed a list of homes meeting your criteria, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Let's take you through a quick tutorial on how it works!
Step 1: Go to www.delcorealty.com (You will most likely already be here if you are reading this blog post online).
Step 2: On the right side of the home page, there is a framed box called "My Account." If you are not already registered on our website, click "Sign Up Here for Your FREE Account" below the "Log In" button
Step 3: Once signed up and logged in to your account, The "My Account" box will look like this:
Step 4: Use the Advanced Search option above the "My Account" box to define your home search criteria. You will be able to Search by City, Subdivision, School, Zip Code, MLS #, or Map. By City tab is selected by default. Just click on another of the other tabs to change your "Search By" criteria.
If you search By City (as in our example here), you will also choose your Property Type. Most clients will select "Residential" as indicated in the graphic below:
Then select one or more cities you what to search in by checking a box(es)...
If you select By Subdivision, By School, By Zip Code, etc... your search criteria will differ a little bit. Just follow the prompts as directed in the appropriate search tab.
As you move down the Advanced Search page, you will notice there are a few other search parameters you can use to further refine your search. These search parameters are optional and can be left as shown below.
Right below the Property Details, you will see a "Start Search!" button (see graphic below).
DO NOT click the "Start Search" button Yet!
Check the "Save Search" box and then you will be provided a text field to Name your Search whatever you want (i.e. "Sugar Creek listings", "Simpsonville Neighborhoods", or "Homes with 5 acres or more" as an example). When you click, "Start Search," your search is saved! If any new home listings that meet your search criteria are found, you will receive an email immediately!
That's it! It's that easy!
You can edit saved searches or add new searches at any time!
