It is always nice to work with home buyers who know what they are looking for in their next home.
With today's computerized multiple listing systems it is very easy to screen a buyer’s desired characteristics and weed through thousands of listings, right?
It should be relatively easy to set up an automated search with the parameters defined and then let the system work for you, right?
Finding the ideal (or even almost ideal) properties even with well defined characteristics still requires a buyer’s agent do additional sifting through many potential properties.
This additional sifting is sometimes necessary because listings turn out to have incorrect data entered which cause it to be incorrectly selected.
And then there are times when the listing agent fails to provide data in available fields within the MLS system that causes the listing to not show up.
As a home seller I encourage you to review the MLS entry your real estate agent places to market your home. Further, I encourage you to review the photos as well (a picture is worth...well you know).
Time is always in short supply. Many buyers are on tight schedules especially if they are in Florida for a week or less to find that house or condo to purchase.
The ability to efficiently search the MLS will help me sell your home and minimize the disruption to your schedule by having buyers show up only to find it isn't very close what they are looking for in a property.
