Recommended For You

There are many types of alerts available through Redfin to help you find the homes that interest you. Our Recommended For You emails look at your past and present search habits on our site, and offers homes to you from there.

Recommended Home emails will adjust over time, depending on the properties you view on Redfin.com. The more you look, the better that this feature can determine the types of homes you are interested in. There may be a slight delay in these, but eventually you’ll start getting recommended homes that suit your preferences as time goes on.

 

Because Recommended Homes cannot be directly changed, you do have the option to stop receiving these types of notifications, if you are not finding them helpful.

 To unsubscribe from recommended for you alerts, Log into your Redfin account by hovering your cursor over your name (in the upper right hand corner). 

 

Here you will see that the Recommended button is set to On.

But switching it to Off will prevent these types of emails from coming your way going forward.

    These alerts do not even vaguely represent the sorts of homes I've been viewing.  They're very annoying.

    This feature is very hit or miss for me.  Half of the recommendations are relevant and useful.  Half of them are for another state, hours away, and are thus of no interest - I have no idea why these are presented.

    It is highly recommended that you provide a way for users to view the various supposed source properties that provide the input seed for the recommendations, and delete those that are not relevant at all.  

    Alternatively, if the user has created some minimum number of favourites, use only the favourites as the input seed for the recommendations algorithm.

    Either of these changes would hopefully allow the algorithm to provide more relevant recommendations.

    Second what Kevin has recommended. The recommendations feature may be more useful if users can define/edit some of the parameters that it uses to search.

     

    When I get a push notification for a recommended property that is many orders of magnitude more expensive than anything I could ever hope to afford, it just leaves me annoyed and angry with the app. Totally an emotional and non-rational response, I know, but that's what happens.

     

    Cheers.

    Hi Kelly,

     

    Additionally, regarding notifications -- It'd be great if we could opt out of certain types of notifications. I like receiving instant notifications for certain types of activity, but my phone get drowned out with others. For example:

     

    I want to receive instant notifications for New Listings and Price Changes, while I would prefer daily notifications for Sold Listings. But I would like to entirely disable notifications for Pending and Contingent statuses.

     

    Thanks!

    Hi Lisa,

    Thanks for asking! You can shut off those notifications and only receive the saved searches you have created. To do that, go to hover over your name in the upper right hand corner and then hit Email Settings. Shut off those recommended for you alerts and that should stop those. 

    Let me know if you have any other questions!

    Thanks!
