Our Home Search Tool
Searching for a home should be fun and we have great tool to help with your search. Here’s how to use the Home Team iHomefinder. After your initial buyer meeting we’ll set up your search based on the criteria we’ve discussed. Our search agent will search all listings in the RMLS system. RMLS is the same database that websites like Zillow and Redfin use. You shouldn’t find different or missing listings from one website to another, but our website will always be completely up to date, unlike some other sites.
Our website will always have the most up to date matches for your search. Just go to http:// www.hometeamportland.com/search-for-homes-1/ and enter your email and your last name as a password. You will be receiving an email explaining the process.
Each day you will receive an email with a list of all the newest listings that meet your criteria. If anything has changed in a previous listing, this listing will appear again, so you may have seen some of the listings before. If a listing is new on the market, it will have a “NEW” label on it.
3) RSS FEED
You can also see listings as soon as they hit the market by tracking them through an RSS (Really Simply Syndication) feed. RSS feeds can be read using software called an "RSS reader", "feed reader", or "aggregator", which can be web-based, desktop-based, or mobile-device-based. The Reader will display a new listing whenever it comes through on our website, so that you don’t have to keep going back the website to check to see if there’s anything new. We can help you set up an RSS feed on your computer or smart phone.
There are a couple great features on the website that will help us find and get you into the homes you want to see.
You can save a list of your favorites by clicking on the heart below listing details on the left hand side of the webpage. We are able to see these favorites, so it helps give us an idea of what you're looking for.
If you're interested in seeing a particular house, you can click on "Schedule a Showing" button. That will send us an email and we'll get in touch right away to set up a showing with you.
We hope that our system proves easy to use and effective for your home search. Please let us know right away if the system isn't working for you.
