Selling a house
« on: June 22, 2015, 03:34:51 PM »
In his recent "How to sell a house" article, MMM makes the following statement:

"Almost ten years ago, I signed up for an automated email system that alerts me of every house listing and every sale that takes place in my neighborhood."

Does anyone know how to sign up for these alerts? Which site(s)?

A Realtor can sign you up for them from your local MLS based on search criteria you specify (price range, square feet, age, zip codes, etc).  Pretty much any will be happy to do it for you, free (it take about a minute for them to set up, and is all automated) because they hope they'll get your business when you decide to buy.

If you want to know more about me, or how we did that, or see lots of pictures, this Business Insider profile tells our story pretty well.
We (occasionally) blog at AdventuringAlong.com.
