When working with clients who are searching for the home of their dreams in the Comox Valley we like to set them up for the Private Client Service, most commonly known as the PCS. We’d like to outline the amazing benefits that the PCS offers to clients and realtors alike and show you how this tool could have an immense impact on your home buying experience.
Once a client has expressed interest in buying a home we like to get them set up on the PCS. We take all of our client’s criteria and enter it into the PCS. We can filter through homes based on price, location, size, type of home, etc. We are also able to adjust the criteria as needed throughout the buying process! Now that the client has a profile on the PCS they will start to receive notifications of new listings that fit their exact criteria. Clients can choose to receive an email each time a new home has been listed or they can log in and check on their own terms. They are also able to see every price change, sale (and sale price) and re-listing that fits within their search criteria. By using the PCS you ensure that you are seeing new listings before they are publicly listed on the MLS. This gives our clients an advantage over others who are relying on viewing listings on real estate websites that may be delayed by a day or two.
We encourage our clients to sort the properties they have viewed on the PCS so we can be aware of which homes are of interest to them. Clients can sort the listings into “favourites” or “removed” folders on the PCS. This allows us to see which homes you have interest in so we can arrange showings, look for similar homes or just keep our ears open for any updates that we may hear regarding that property. Once we have found you your dream home you will likely have no interest in viewing properties that fit your search criteria any longer. If that is the case all you have to do to remove yourself from receiving PCS updates is hit “unsubscribe”.
It really is a no-brainer; the PCS is an incredible tool to use throughout your home buying experience. And for extra peace of mind, you can be assured that all of your personal information and search criteria is kept 100% confidential. We hope this has helped you gain a better understanding of the benefits of the Private Client Service. If you’d like to begin your home buying journey with us, give us a call! We’d love to help you find your new home in the Comox Valley.
