Hear It From The Source

Hear It From The Source                  

Hear It From The SourceAll too often as Realtors® we hear things about houses that are way off base.  Sellers will tell us about houses that sold in their neighborhood for amounts not found on the MLS and buyers will want to visit houses that have been off the market for a year. 

Sellers talk to their neighbors who may have heard something from another neighbor about a house down the street that sold within the last year, but it was never information they heard directly from the neighbor who sold the house.

Buyers do research on the internet and look on websites that are not maintained by Realtors and the information is dated and does not reflect current information on the houses that peaked their interest.

These scenarios remind me of the game children play called "whisper down the lane".  You may recall that game.  It was always fun to hear what the last child heard and what the first child said.  Always way off base.

So if you want to know what is accurate for a house that sold or is on the market at the present time, consult with a local Realtor® that uses a Multiple Listing Service for your area.  Info from a local Realtor® is a really good way to get accurate info on a given house on or off the market.  Get the facts, hear it from the source, call and work with a local Realtor®!
