3 Reasons to Use a Realtor Website for Your Home Search
Zillow, Trulia, Homes.com, Realtor.com… We all know these as some of the main websites to begin your home search online. While using these websites can be helpful, in the long run they tend to work at your disadvantage.
Using a REALTOR website can and should be the website you use to begin your home search. Here we will discuss 3 major advantages to using an agent website, as opposed to jumping on one of the larger top mind home search websites.
1. Instant and Automatic Updates
Choosing an agent is almost as important as the property you finally end up deciding to call home. You will want to make sure you are working with an agent who utilizes an IDX website. In essence a website that feeds directly from the licensed agents database of homes for sale, more formally recognized as the MLS. By using such a site you will be notified each and every morning, week, or month based on your criteria of new homes that have recently come on the market and of recent price reductions in the area.
2. Custom Searches
Creating custom searches on an IDX website is easy as pie. Create a search that allows you to receive all properties under $500K that have a water view and a saltwater pool. It can really be that detailed, and guess what? Be the first one to know about them coming on the market with an instant email sent to you each and every morning. Want a leg up in that hot sellers market where homes are going under contract the same day they come on the market? Be the first to know about them before anyone else… get in touch with an agent that can position you and your search on a highly effective and fast driven IDX website suited to your SPECIFIC search parameters.
3. Immediate Agent Contact
This may be the most important aspect of the website of all of them. Being able to immediately reach out to your agent via email, text, or phone right from the website. No longer do you have to request information on a specific property and then be bombarded by every new agent in town that gets your information. Using an IDX site puts you back in control with an area expert that you have built a professional relationship with over time.
