Top Tips For House Hunting Online
Hunting for a new home online is a great place to start your search, but it should not be your end all be all. Good listing agents are excellent at highlighting the best features of the home, but keep in mind there may be more than meets the eye. To make the most of your time and efforts and gather a well-rounded picture of home listings online, keep the following three things in mind.
1 – Stay up to date. When you start your search, make sure you find a site that pulls up-to-date listings directly from the multiple listing service (MLS) where real estate agents actively post their most current homes for sale. Many online resources update less often or fail to remove listings that are off the market, making it more difficult to sort through the clutter. Check out my search for homes website at https://rory.housesinsoutherncal.com/ for up to date information and the ability to save homes you love!
3 – See it to believe it. Once you find what appears to be your dream home online, call me up so we can schedule a showing. You want to take the opportunity to vet the home via virtual showings and in person to explore every part of it before beginning the offer process. I know it is may sound a little taboo right now going out and viewing homes, but we as real estate agents are taking all the appropriate safety precautions to help protect you during this time.
If you are thinking of buying, now is a great time to start the search. Call me or visit my website, and let’s schedule a virtual meeting!
