We recently asked our users to fill out a quick survey and the answers were enlightening. Thanks for all the feedback and all the love! This page is an attempt to address some of the questions that came up. We've started with just a few of the most common questions, but keep an eye on this section as we will be updating it with more information in the near future. If you have any feedback or input please take a moment to answer our survey. Thank you for being so awesome!
A: Because of the rules around listing data, the real estate board requires you to register for access to certain data. We will very soon be adding functionality that allows you to reveal list and change-dates by registering. Don't worry, we will not contact you unless you want us too.
A: Because our data is as fresh as it gets. All our listing data comes originates from the MLS® database and many REALTORS® list their properties before they have any photos to upload. You can switch on the "images only" option if you'd prefer to only see listings with images.
A: If you've been using our site for long time (thank you!) you may remember that we didn't use to have individual pages for each listing. When we added the individual listing pages we decided to remove the slideshow to keep things simple, but due to popular demand we are working on bringing it back and making it even better.
A: Our philosophy with 40listings is to keep it as easy to use as we can. There are a lot of real estate search sites with complex search functionality, but we think part of what makes 40listings special is our dead-simple ease of use. That said, we are working on ways to introduce more advanced search features without compromising simplicity. Stay tuned for updates.
A: we update the site every 4hrs with the newest info from the MLS database. The fluctuations you see in the timing of when new listings are added to the MLS database is just a natural part of the marketplace. When lots of real estate agents are updating the MLS listings, our site is getting lots of updates too. When they're not, we're not. We've got some functionality in the works that will let you "watch" a list and get notified when new listings are added.
