What’s the difference between CleanOffer and public real estate websites?
CleanOffer, a local, San Francisco based company, offers complete listing data, where many public, national websites–such as Zillow, Trulia and Realtor.com– have incomplete and/or stale data because they do not aggregate their data with the MLS. CleanOffer explains on its site that “because [we are] a private, password protected website, we are able to show all listings and all property addresses. [We] update our data in real time, with a lag time from the MLS of about a half hour. Therefore it is for the “Serious” not the “Curious” property searcher.” And I could not agree more.
CleanOffer is also a better tool when you are seriously looking for a home than any agent/broker’s search tool (IDX) on their website (including my own search tool on this website) again because it gets updated from the MLS more frequently and is more accurate.
Why you should use CleanOffer:
To me, the most compelling reason to use CleanOffer is that it is not available to the general public and access to its search tools is limited to clients who have been granted log-in rights by their Real Estate Agent. This exclusivity provides serious home buyers with a distinctive advantage in today’s fast moving and competitive market. Features and benefits include:
- Search like a Realtor
- Access to 100% of the Available and In-Contract Marin County MLS listings, in real time and unbiased
- Email alerts of new listings meeting your search criteria (you can set as many searches as you like) and open houses
- Email notification of price or status changes of your “favorite” properties
- Access to sold listings
- Share listings via email, ask questions or request showings from your agent
- Your information is not shared with anyone other than the agent with whom you sign up
CleanOffer allows these qualified and empowered buyers to work collaboratively with their agent to identify the right property. In fact, 40% of the buyers who use CleanOffer purchase a home through their agent in a year or less. No other online real estate service comes close.
ARE YOU READY TO TAKE YOUR HOME SEARCH TO A NEW LEVEL? Just go to CleanOffer’s sign up page. The program will ask you to register as my client (Sylvie Zolezzi) and to “commit” to work with me. This will not create a contractual obligation on your part to work with me, but I hope you will consider it if you appreciate the value I provide not only through tools like this one, but also the wealth of information I have gathered on my site and my expertise. Either way, I am happy to give you access to CleanOffer, and there is no cost to you either. Not now, not ever.
