How to Create and Modify Email Alerts

Modified on Tue, 09 Apr 2024 at 09:59 AM

If you want to be notified whenever an assumable property that matches your specific criteria becomes available for sale, AssumeList offers email alerts.  This article describes how to create a new alert and edit an existing one.

Create a New Alert

Follow these steps to create and customize notification preferences according to your needs:

Step 1. Establish your Search Criteria: Start by building your set of parameters you would like to be notified about. This includes location, price, bed/baths, down payment, home type, etc.

Step 2. Access Notification Settings: Once you've established your search criteria, press the "Save Search" button to access the notification settings.

Step 3. Save Search Name: Utilize the "Name Your Search" field to save your search criteria for future reference.

Step 4. Email Alert Frequency: Select your preferred alert frequency. Options include Instant, Daily, Weekly, or Never. If you chose the option “Never, " you will not receive an email notification.

Step 5. Toggle Buttons (Status & Price):

Status: Receive an email alert whenever an assumable property meets your criteria, such as transitioning from off-market to active, off-market to coming soon, coming soon to active, and from under contract back to active.

Price: Get notified via email when an assumable property within your criteria undergoes a price change. 

Step 6. Additional Email Recipients: Optional: Specify additional email recipients to receive notifications (Pro and Agent accounts only). To add recipients, enter an email address and press "enter".  

Note: The account owner will automatically receive notifications if the email notification toggle is turned on. 

Step 7.  Click "Save Search" once complete.


Step 8. Once you've saved your search, you'll receive email notifications for any MLS updates that match your specified preferences. The subject line of those emails will include the property address and the name of the saved search identified in Step 3 above.

Modifying (or Removing) an Existing Alert

You can modify existing alerts using the following steps:

Step 1. From the main menu, click on "My Saved".

Step 2. Click on the "Searches" tab to access your Saved Searches.

Step 3. Find the saved search you want to edit and click the three dots and "edit".  Note: you can also remove (delete) a saved search from this menu as well.

Step 4. From the Update Search menu, you are able to adjust the notification settings, including turning the email alert off (which leaves the saved search intact), as well as adding or removing additional recipients for that specific search.  Be sure to click "Update Search" once changes are complete.
