The Truth About Online Real Estate Websites

Where do buyers, sellers and renters begin, when it comes to searching for real estate? Surprisingly, they look at the most inaccurate sites. The majority of real estate seekers, look to websites such as Trulia, Zillow, Redfin, HotPads, etc. Unfortunately, these are some of the most inaccurate sites to search. You see, these sites depend on the support of paying Realtors’ sponsorship. The Realtors depend upon these sites, for their marketing exposure, so they pay to be a “featured” agent. In return, they are guaranteed a minimum amount of “leads.” It doesn’t matter, if the home has been sold, leased, or canceled. So long as they meet their quota of leads. Why do Realtors pay for leads that really are not leads? Why do buyers, sellers, and renters search these sights? Because not enough people are aware, that the information can be old, sold, or untold. One time, I received a phone call from someone interested in a home I had for sale. I told the person, “I’m sorry. That home was sold 4 years ago.” The person on the other end of the phone began to curse me out, for having inaccurate, outdated information on the Internet. My response, “I’m sorry. I do not control these websites. These websites must keep the number of listings up, because agents pay for a minimum number of contacts/leads. It doesn’t matter to them, f the information is accurate or not. It only matters that the agents get what they pay for, and that the sites make their money from the agents.“

My website: has accurate information. The site is updated daily. You wont find a home on it that is a year old, a month old, or even a week old. If it is sold or rented a couple days ago, it will NOT be on my website. And to be fair, also has accurate information which is updated daily.

Folks, you don’t need to waste your time. Get what you want, when you want it. Always get accurate information, the first time. If your time is important, and you want no nonsense, accurate information, visit my website. You won’t need to look further!
