Search Alerts in Marketplace - It's here!

17 Replies

BiggerPockets - I've heard from many of you that one of the biggest issues with the Marketplace is that you cannot get alerts when a property fits your criteria. 

We've been working on a fix and it launched this morning. As of today, when you filter properties in the Marketplace, you will be given the option to Create a Search Alert! Check it out here.


When you click the grey button "Create Search Alert" you can: 

1) Label your search whatever you want to call it. Examples include Denver metro duplex or Flippin' hot properties ;) 

2) Choose how you want to receive notification of properties that fit your criteria. You can choose if you want site notification and how frequently you want to receive an email notification. 

From here, we'll let you know when a property is listed in the Marketplace that fits your criteria for a deal. 

You can edit your label, incase Flippin' hot properties is not how you want to name your search, and edit your filters at any time by heading to Settings --> Alerts, and selecting "edit"

We launched this ASAP, we know there is more work to be done to make the Marketplace fit your standards and we are working on it! Please do not hesitate to PM me or leave a message below with feedback. 

My goal is to help every one of you get closer to a deal and start building wealth, I hope this is a step in the right direction!

@Lauren Hogan Why am I still getting a little red circle with a line over it when I put my cursor over the "create search alert", ie its not letting me click it?

@Steven Taylor Click "Marketplace" in the top navigation, or "Real Estate Listings" from the Marketplace dropdown. @Fernando Enrile it is available in the mobile version, open the filters section after you've applied a filter and you'll be able to click "Create Search Alert", it's under the "Apply Filters" button.  

Hi and Thank You. 

Question... I set up my particular alert but when I selected my location for filtering, I could only select PA(Pennsylvania) which provides every listing in the state. Is there a feature that allows us to select a certain area either by zip or city and include the surrounding areas? I look in the Philly area and only look to purchase in the surrounding counties but it provides the listings in Pittsburgh, Harrisburg, Poconos, etc...

Thank you
