Home Search Begins on the Internet
Most home buyers today begin their search for a new home on the Internet. But which site do you use? Sites such as Trulia, Zillow and Craigslist are common places new buyers go for information, but unfortunately those listing are typically stale and are not the most up-to-date. By far the most accurate, up-to-date information on homes for sale in central Oklahoma is the Metro OKC MLS (Multiple Listing Service). The local MLS is the “gold standard” for property listings in central Oklahoma. Why? Because local Realtors are responsible for the data on the MLS, and there are strict rules in place that require each Realtor to keep that listing information accurate and correct. Only licensed Realtors are allowed to update the MLS info, and some information on the MLS is only available to Realtors. Consumers are not allowed direct access to the MLS, but you can access most of the MLS data through feeds such as mine at KayPratt.com.
My web site was the first web site in Oklahoma to have a direct feed from the OKC Metro MLS. All listings on my site are updated nightly so you always have the most accurate, timely listings of homes available for sale in the OKC metro. You can search by a multitude of criteria, including square footage, school district, price, bedrooms, and many more. You can also pull up a map showing listings in the area that meet your criteria. This allows you to search for homes that meet your needs right from the comfort of your own couch, and you can share that information with me as we search for your next home. As you find homes that you want to visit in person, you can easily send those to me and I can set up showings, pull tax records, mortgage information, historical sales data and comparable recent sales in the same neighborhood. This way I can provide you a wealth of information on the homes you are considering, helping you to make an informed choice about your next home.
Automated Listing Notifications
If you sign up on my site you can set up custom search criteria for homes in central Oklahoma and when a new property comes on the market that meets your criteria, my site will automatically send you an email notification so you can see the property details. This is the best way to stay up-to-date on the latest home information in the Oklahoma City metro housing market.
In addition to standard and advanced searches, you can also search by an on-line map. Draw the boundaries of your search area, put in your price requirements, and my site will show you all the properties in that area that meet your criteria.
