Research tools can save you time and money!

This is a tutorial to show you how to set up your own FREE Private Client Services account, available on our website: www.vancouverhomesteam.com

Why should you sign up for Private Client Services?

Web-based tools, like Private Client Services (PCS), will significantly limit the amount of time you spend in the early stages of your research. PCS, for instance, allows you to set and manage a specific search criterion and receive email updates when suitable listings hit the market!

It’s also updated 32-76 hours before other real estate search engines, like Realtor.ca or MLS.ca, so you will usually have a head start on other buyers!

Once your account is created, PCS will notify you with new listings, show active listings on the market, and let you know in real-time when a property sells and for how much.

Why do you need sold prices?

Well, anyone can list any property at any price – it’s what the property sells for that matters! Access to sold prices will enable you to monitor the market in your area of interest, compare list prices versus sold prices, and help you identify good value.

Want to know how much your property is worth?

Set up a building specific or street specific search and monitor what your floor plan or style of house is selling for!
