How Reliable Is Your Real Estate Information (And When Does It Matter)?
I received a note from a customer the other day about the real estate information that can be found online, and how frustrating it can be to find that a home for sale is really "not for sale."
I let her know that most online property search tools have data that can be so out of date that listings only get updated on a monthly basis. You might be very surprised to know what we find daily on the best known property search tools on the internet.
Knowing which tools to use (and when to use them) is actually part of a bigger issue for both homebuyers and sellers alike. I think a prudent consumer wishing to make the best deal possible in the real estate market needs to have this down before going any further.
Prepare To Win
If there is one constant theme that long-time readers of the Tallahassee Real Estate Blog have seen, it's that preparation and planning are the key to winning in your next real estate transaction.
All too often, homebuyers end up working with the first agent they speak with instead of a highly qualified buyer's agent.
According to the NAR, 74% of buyers and 64% of home sellers work with the first agent that they speak with, instead of finding the real estate agent best qualified to help them buy a home or sell their home at the highest price and on schedule.
Useful Real Estate Information
Most real estate websites are full of templated generalities and the information is only useful to somebody in their preliminary stages of buying a home.
The Tallahassee Real Estate Website goes much further than that, and we do it because we know what buyers need and want (two very different things I might add).
What most buyers want is to see houses ... and we've got the most current list of homes for sale in the Tallahassee MLS. Our map based property search tool has no rival in Tallahassee, and we offer it as a free service to all.
What most buyers need is to use a process designed to save them money. A little extra preparation time spent up front is often worth tens of thousands of dollars and a higher level of satisfaction when they eventually own their new home.
Take the time to review our neighborhood reports, our market reports, our daily blog, and enroll in our free online course "Home Buying For Smart People." We have received excellent feedback from the homebuyers that came before you, and we hope you join the growing group of smart homebuyers who decided to get a great deal on their home purchase.

Something tells us you’re just … well … smarter than most people looking to buy a home.
You’re not naive, you are looking for a house to call home, and you want to make sure that you love the home you buy, but also get a great value.
In other words, you don’t have to be an Einstein to “get” the home buying process. But you do have to be prepared.
We can prepare you
