Buying a Home in Salt Lake City, UT


Using Technology to Save Time in Your Home Search

Searching the MLS for homes for saleStep 1: Get Technology Working For You

Tired of looking through website after website of homes for sale and trying to figure out which homes you've seen already and what's new? There is a better way!

Many multiple listing services (MLS) have a feature built in that allows an agent to create a custom search using criteria you provide. This search can run daily and inform you of new, price reduced, or otherwise changed listings that match the criteria you've set.

Using this "Hotsheet" feature means you will no longer need to surf through hundreds of homes on the public sites trying to guess which homes may be the new listings! Also, most agents can create a search using more specific listing criteria than is allowed on many of the websites that aggregate listing data. Because the search is looking at the MLS database directly, you will get the most accurate and up to date information available.

Step 2: Seeing the Homes

When a home pops up that looks interested, your buyer's agent can make arrangements to show you the home. If you have hired an Exclusive Buyer's Agent (EBA), they will show you any home, anywhere, listed by any real estate company. Since Exclusive Buyer's Agents do not list homes and you hire them to work for YOU, there is no pressure to convince you to buy any particular home. Exclusive Buyers Agents work for Buyers ONLY!

A good Exclusive Buyer's Agent can help you with your home search. You'll find that in addition to making the process of finding your next home easier, the real value comes in having an agent on your side through negotiations, inspections and in helping you to get the home you want at the best price and terms for you!
