How To Use Our New Website To Look For Your Next Home
Earlier this month we were delighted to launch this new website.
For a full description of the facilities, please click here to read our introductory blog.
Today we'd like to specifically help buyers to get the most from the site.
We offer an extensive search section which you'll see as the first item on the menu at the top of this page.
Search offers the following menu options:
Advanced Search - This enables you to perform a highly detailed drill down of the specification and type of home you're looking for. This includes setting a range for price, square footage, lot size, the desired number of bedrooms and bathrooms, age of the home and amount of garage space. There's a wide selection of additional features you can specify in your search, including number of stories, whether you wish to live in a 55+ community and selecting FHA/VA approved homes only. Detailed drop down menus enable you to make very tailored choices of the type of view, frontage, home style and pool type (if needed). There's even the ability to make very complex feature stipulations, including beach rights, concierge, horse facilities, built in barbecue etc. You can also opt to only view homes that have had price reductions or those properties that have hit the market in a particular time span.
Search By Map - As the title implies, this is a more visual search based on our built-in Google Maps integration. You can make selections based on price, beds, baths, property type and a wide range of other very detailed options.
Property Tracker - Here's where you can set up your website account to receive email updates as soon as new listings matching your pre-specified criteria appear on the market. You can also set up and save a range of specific searches and save listings for in a single, easy to use repository for later reference.
Featured Listings - This is a fast link to all the current homes being listed by us.
All listings on the site, click here to view an example, provide attractively presented photos that span across your screen. You can elect to view these at full size and also click a button to take a virtual tour.
Should you require a home loan, we provide a ready reckoner so you can gauge what your monthly costs are likely to be.
You can also check out the property using all the facilities of Google Maps, including street view. We also provide extensive community and school information.
The architecture of the home and its facilities, features and amenities are fully described and we also provide easy reference guides to the area's walk, transit and bike scores.
You can also schedule a home tour, using an online calendar, get directions to the property or even download a printable flyer. You can click on top menu buttons that enable you to save the home for future reference in your website account, or share the listing with others via email or social media.
The Communities section is a handy quick reference if you want to check out listings in specific popular Coronado districts, including Coronado Cays, Coronado Landing/Point, Coronado Village or Coronado Shores. You can also use this section to isolate new construction options.
Our Buyers section extends to mortgage calculation and a pre-approval application, first time buyer guidance, as well as answers to other common questions including how to make an offer, what is escrow and what are closing costs. There's also a useful financial terms glossary.
We are also very proud to say that by clicking on the flag icon in the top right of the menu on any page, your can translate the entire site to one of nine languages, including Spanish, Portuguese, French, Chinese and German.
And last, but not least, is our blog which you've clearly already discovered, containing an extremely wide range of real estate advice, news and home tips. Revisit here often for the latest articles - we produce two every single week; one on Tuesdays and the other at the end of the working week on Fridays.
We hope the above description helps you to make the most of our site. If you have any further questions or suggestions concerning the site, or any other queries related to real estate, please don't hesitate to get in touch with us at 619-886-0175.
