How do I use "My HomeBuyer Alert"?
To get set up for My HomeBuyer Alert, simply go to the registration screens on the right-hand side of our homepage and make your selections for:

  • County: Select Marin, Sonoma, Napa or Solano
  • City: You may select a particular city, or leave the city unselected to broaden your choices within the county.
  • Property Type: Select either Single Family or Condo
  • Bedrooms and Bathrooms: You may select your preferences or leave this section unselected to broaden your choices
  • Price Range: Select a minimum and maximum price range that you feel fits your budget.  Setting the range too high or too low will present choices that are not a fit. This will complicate your search. (see "Fine-tuning my Search" below. Also, click-on One-on-One Counseling and PreApproved Commitment Letter for additional ideas on fine-tuning your search.)
  • Advanced Search: You may also specify other standards like square footage or age of property on the Advanced Search under "More Options" at the bottom of the registration Screen.
Can I enter multiple searches?
Yes. For example, you can enter separate searches for Condos in Novato, Single Family Homes in Petaluma and Single Family Homes in Cotati. Results will then be combined and sent to you anytime a new home meeting your requirements goes on the market in any of these cities.

How do I receive ongoing eMail alerts?
Be sure the box at the bottom of the
registration screen entitled "receive new
listing eMail alerts on this search" is
checked so your search will be saved. We'll
forward new listings by e-mail that match
your selections as they appear on MLS.

Fine-tuning my search.
NFH can assist with One-on-One Counseling and by helping you obtain a PreApproved Commitment from an alliance lender.  Once we've worked with you to determine the maximum loan you can afford, the My HomeBuyer Alert search can be reset to present affordable homes in your price range.
