There isn’t a way to directly adjust the frequency of email alerts, but you can make adjustments to your searches to limit the number of alerts you receive. 

Email alerts for your saved searches are sent to you daily, but only when new listings that match your criteria have been posted. This means that the more general your searches are, the more email alerts you will receive each day. If you notice you’re receiving too many email alerts, try creating a new search using filters to lower the number of results you receive.

Editing your saved searches is a great way to reduce or increase the number of alerts you’re receiving! To learn more about how to set up the most effective search, find out how to use our search engine and how to narrow your search.
