What if finding your perfect home was like using a dating app? (But better. Way. Better.)
At Rost Real Estate, you receive the advantage of searching for your next home using an amazing tool called Collab Center. Once we’ve had a chance to chat, we’ll collaborate with you to set up a home search that is specific to your lifestyle and home “must have’s” list. We’ll take into consideration items such as neighborhood, price range, style, and size of home, and set up your customized search. Then we’ll send you a welcome email to the site. Now you can log in to activate your personal account, and start receiving real-time information. Prepare to meet your newish crush – the home you were always meant to find.
What does that mean?
Since your account is directly linked to the Real Estate Association, you’ll be updated the very minute new homes are listed throughout the day. You’ll also receive notifications when there is a price adjustment, or a change in status from active, to pending, or sold on any of the homes you may have saved within your search. In the Greater Edmonton Area, we are currently experiencing a “seller’s market”, with more qualified buyers and fewer listed properties. Receiving up-to-date information in your home search is vital as it gives you the advantage of acting quickly, to stay ahead of the competition, when you see a home you may want to view and possibly make an offer on. Your Collab Center “Dashboard” also allows you to set a “status” for each individual property that you preview. It’s like shopping at Winners for clothes where the change rooms have a hook for the clothes you try on; there’s a “definitely”, “tomorrow” and “maybe later” hook, intended to make sure you don’t try on the same clothes over and over.
In Collab Center, as you evaluate each possible home match, you choose the best label; undecided, favorite, possible, or rejected. This allows you to sort through the properties once, keeping your search organized, and making the most of your time by ensuring you only revisit the homes that are of interest to you. There is also the option for you to create additional home searches inside your profile should a new neighbourhood become of interest to you. Our goal is to ensure you are receiving the information that is most valuable to your goals as quickly as possible. Our team can also communicate with you inside of the site, suggesting any properties we think have great potential and viewing any homes you have chosen as favorites. That way, when you’re ready to move to the next step and view those homes in person, we can easily access the listing information and set up the appointments.
We’re here to help you find the perfect place and make your journey into home ownership as easy as possible. Let’s connect and get your home search started!
