Your Frequently Asked Questions
How do you use the site?
a. Whether you are a buyer or seller you will need to set up an account on the site. This account will give you an identity that will enable you to post your request for a home to buy. If you are a seller your account will enable you to email features and photos of your home to prospective buyers.
b. If you are a buyer use the drill down buttons in the middle of the home page to find the location you want to buy a house/condo in. If you are not sure exactly which neighborhood you want to live in you can stop at the city level and post there. When posting your request for a home be as specific as possible about what you have to have and how strong your preferences are for certain things in a home. Then sit back and monitor your email account for email alerts asking you to log in see the homes sent to you by matched sellers and or their real estate agent.
c. If you are a seller you should scan home buyers listing in your neighborhood and city to find a matching buyer for your home. Once you see a posting for a home like yours, log in and email the buyer with information and photos of your home. If they are interested in your home they will contact you back and together you can work out the terms of the sale.
Why should I use the BestBLS.com?
a. Buyers will no longer be limited to the homes listed for sale in the various seller listing services, which is a very small percentage of the existing homes in any neighborhood. Your housing request can be seen by home owners who will contact you directly with out having to list their home for sale in the traditional seller listing services.
b. Many home buyers do not find the search functions detailed enough in the various seller listing services to find what they want even if its currently listed for sale. Real estate agents working for their sellers may see your home request on this site and forward information on the matching home with out you having to search for it.
c. Home owners who want a buyer for their home will be able to look at buyers request and when finding a match be able to email them details about their home.
