Blogging Tip: Use Email Alerts

Posted by: Jessica Gopalakrishnan on December 11th, 2008

One way to stay ahead of the competition is to be the first one out with the news. Yes, you can read the local newspaper or watch television to get the latest news in your market… but there is another way— let the news come to you by using email ALERTS.

Set up Google Alerts

Sample Alerts

Here are alerts you may find helpful. The idea is to catch the latest news ahead of the pack. And be informed for your clients.

  • Neighborhoods
  • New developments and buildings
  • Builders
  • Property types (include your market keywords to narrow results): “St. Paul Victorian” “Brooklyn historic homes” “ Miami Beach condos”
  • Real estate issues: “short sales”
  • Your niche or specialty: “green housing”
