Florida Real Estate Information: Current Real Estate Information on the Internet? Not Likely!

Does it seem strange a real estate agent would write an article on the Internet questioning the availability of current real estate information on the Internet?

It may seem strange but consider this....
  • There are a lot of real estate sites on the Internet. Some of them are biggies like  Zill_w dot com and Trul_a dot com.  These sites are often sited as the "recognized" expert or the quoted "proof" depending on the person using them.  But the information, particularly real estate listings, is rarely current.
  • There is a lot of information on the Internet but who can publish on the Internet?  Anyone can publish anything to suit their purpose.  There is no source to verify before the publish button is pressed.
  • Data "scrapers" are only grabbing information without scrubbing it for accuracy.  The joy of automation.
There is a source of reliable, accurate real estate information on the Internet. 
  • A local knowledgeable real estate agent who has access to raw information who can screen it for what you are seeking whether homes for sale, sold properties, a market analysis or whatever purpose.
