Pet Friendly Homes in Boca Raton

Be careful using the "Street View" option when viewing homes online.

If you are looking at the "street view" option of a home online, beware - that photo may be from years ago.  Please take a few moments to read Amanda and Jared Christiansen's blog post explaining this very problem.

Yesterday Amanda called me into her office to look at something very interesting.  

She pulled up our new listing at 938 Powers Street in New Haven, Indiana on Zillow.com.  

Here is the listing.  

All of the pictures look good.  No complaints there.  

The description is obviously spot on since it comes directly from our local MLS (multiple listing service).  

The zestimate?  It's inaccurate.  Big surprise there, but that's another topic for another blog that I may or may not write.  

What grabbed her attention was the street view.  You can find that under the main picture on the lower right hand side.  

If you click on it, you see the front of our listing and you see the neighboring house to the left.  

The house you see looks like junk.  The siding badly needs replaced, and it's just an eye sore in general.  

 

Here's the thing...  that house doesn't look like that anymore.  

 

Last year the owners completely remodeled the entire house inside and out, including new vinyl siding, new landscaping, and (I believe) new windows.  

The street view here is probably a year old, if not older.  

 

Is this one minor detail doing to prevent a sale?  I doubt it, but it sure doesn't help it.  

 

95% of home buyers start their search online, and a lot of them use Zillow, Trulia, and Realtor.com to search.  All of these sites provide a Street View option that most home buyers will use.   

 

My advice?  If you're looking online and see a home you're very interested in, drive by it in person.  Some of the things online may not be up to date or accurate.  

As always, I would advise you to call a local expert.  I happen to know a couple...
