Are You Wasting Your Time Searching Those Mega Real Estate Sites?

You know those real estate mega sites, right?  The Z-T-R sites that have thousands of properties that
  • may or may not be for sale today, 
  • may or may not reflect current prices, 
  • may or may not have accurate descriptions, 
  • may or may not have accurate school information...well,you get the point.
If the reliability of the information may be questioned are you wasting your time searching those mega sites?

The answer, of course, depends on how valuable your time is as well as well as your seriousness about buying a home. 

For cursory research these sites may be good starting points to gain a general idea about the home prices in an area.  Once an area is identified I suggest home buyers switch strategies to getting their own real estate agent.

First of all, your buyer's agent does not cost you anything - except the time to discuss your needs and desires.  Your real estate agent is your local expert.

Your real estate agent will help to identify your needs and set up an automated search of the multiple listing service which will provide the most accurate information about what is for sale, under contract and sold in your area. 

Why go on another site when your custom MLS search with access to the most current data is free and easily available?

Your agent will be available to answer your questions.  Your real estate agent will be able to refer you to other local experts and service providers which is likely better than a needle in the haystack options based on an Internet search!

So once again I ask you....Are you wasting your time on these mega sites?  Only you can answer that question.
