One of the marvels of today’s world is the easy access to information of all types. The internet has made it easier for everyone to learn a little about almost anything.
One of the drawbacks is the ease in which a novice can paint themselves as an expert. We need to be aware that not everything we read on the internet is real or factual.
We run into a huge challenge when working with clients or interested prospects shopping online for homes. Almost daily we hear from buyers wanting to see a home they viewed on Zillow or another website that has already been sold. It is very common for homes to already be under contract by the time an interested buyer finds them on the web.
Unfortunately, a fair amount of the real estate information you will find on the internet is outdated, not completely accurate or missing some important fact. This brings me to this week’s suggestion that serious buyers will almost always benefit from working with an experienced, professional Buyer Agent.
If you want your interests protected during the purchase of a home, new or used, take the time to interview and choose a qualified Buyer Agent to represent you. Experience has proven that the best relationships are created when the prospective buyer takes a few minutes and allows the Buyer Agent to learn what the prospective buyer really wants and needs.
