Browsing for Homes online - what you should know

It's so much fun to search online for your perfect home. You can find out a lot of information online. But browser beware!

The property site you're using doesn't always stay up to date. Zillow and Trulia are well known for their outdated information. I frequently get calls from a client wanting to see xyz property. I look up that address and discover that it sold 2 months ago, creating a disappointed client. Your agent can give you access to sites that have the most updated information.

Most agents hire really good photographers. While that helps get a potential buyer to the home, be sure to look deeper than the pretty pictures and the nice looking decor.

Your realtor can help you dig deeper and give you resources to check school ratings, crime reports, hospital ratings, etc.

Browsing online is helpful but only 1 step towards buying your home.
