Don't Believe Everything You See on the Internet - Especially Homes 'For Sale'
Spawning off of an excellent explanation of why a home is still showing up on the internet as active, written by Ed Silva, I wanted to share another 'take' on this never-ending issue for Charlotte home buyers.
Syndication is absolutely a wonderful marketing tool for our Charlotte home sellers! What an exciting thing for them to see their home listed in a very high-profile manner all over the internet! The power of syndication is endless in ourcurrent real estate market - every home buyer has a 'preferred site' on which to search for theirnew home and knowing that it won't be missed is priceless for sellers.
For buyers, it's another story! If you're not searching with an agent and directly from MLS, chances are you're going to be seeing listings that are minutes or hours old - always a good thing but, especially in this hot, seller's market. I can't tell you the number of times I have been called by consumers, wanting to view MY listing (and it's not mine) and when I look it up, it's either already under Contract or, some have even already CLOSED!
If you're not searching with an agent who provides you a detailed search, tailored to YOUR needs and is a direct feed from our Multiple Listing Service, you WILL miss your dream home in our current market. This is no joke and is quite serious for some buyers who have missed their dream homes because they are searching on syndicated sites.
We love those sites for the exposure for our sellers but, the accuracy is simply inconsistent, at best, for buyers.
Charlotte Home Buyers - if you're searching for a home in our area, give me a call at (704) 491-3310. I'm happy to set you up with a home search that will keep you from missing that dream home again...and off of the internet's syndicated home sales sites!
