Browser Beware: Browsing Online vs. In Person

Are you up to date on all of your online browsing rules? Houselogic.com wrote a GREAT article about the better sites to use, how to spot incorrect/outdated information, etc. We are ALWAYS telling our buyers to send us addresses first if the home they see online didn’t come directly from us. We’ve seen homes listed on Zillow that sold a year ago before! We also warn our buyers that agents nowadays use photographers and filters for photos so when they walk into that shiny new home, it may not be as shiny and new as it looked online. We love this tidbit below! Be sure to follow the link to the full article and information.

“First things first: You wouldn’t read last month’s Vanity Fair for the latest cafe society gossip, right? So you shouldn’t browse property sites that show old listings.

Get the latest listings from realtor.com®, which pulls its information every 15 minutes from the Be First Through the DoorAsk your agent to send you automated emails from their MLS with new properties that meet your specs.Multiple Listing Service (MLS), regional databases where real estate agents post listings for sale. That means that realtor.com®’s listings are more accurate than some others, like Zillow and Trulia, which may update less often. You wouldn’t want to get your heart a flutter for a house that’s already off the market.” Credit: houselogic.com
