In last week’s column, I offered to set up Free Neighborhood Alerts for any reader who wanted to keep track of real estate activity in his or her subdivision or larger area. The response was overwhelming. I myself have received over 40 requests, keeping me so busy that I’ve had to make time to write this week’s column!
I’m not complaining. My broker associates and I are pleased to make this service available to everyone who wants it, and we’ve become pretty efficient at creating these free alerts.
We’re able to fulfill more requests, so feel free to ask for your own neighborhood alert. All our broker associates are able to create these highly personalized reports. Just give us your address and the boundaries of the area you wish to monitor. The initial alert will tell you all the active, under contract, sold, withdrawn and expired listings in that area, going back 90 or 180 days or longer. Future alerts will come to you within 15 minutes of a new or changed listing being entered on the MLS. You will literally be up-to-the-minute in your knowledge of real estate activity in your neighborhood!
I’m happy to handle every request I get from readers, but if you know one of our broker associates, feel free to direct your request to him or her. They are more than happy to provide this free service.
Send your requests by email only, please. Here are the names and email addresses of our broker associates:

In addition to setting up the neighborhood alert for you, we will also send you valuation reports on your home using two different software packages that you will find are much more accurate than, say, the Zillow “Zestimates” which home owners are used to seeing. We can also provide a spreadsheet of active, under contract and sold listings that are comparable to your own home as a double-check on those valuations.
