In this quick tutorial, I show you how to use resources like a pro! Specifically, I walk you through the popular real estate website Zillow and demonstrate how I would go about using it if I was not a realtor and wanted to accurately search for homes like an agent.
Why would I show you how to do this you might ask? There are two primary answers to that:
- The reality of 2019 is my clients (and most home buyers) have been on real estate websites searching for properties long before they met me. I choose to embrace the resources available to the public and deliver value to my clients by demonstrating exactly how to use it and more importantly how to avoid the major pitfalls and booby traps that public real estate websites lay out for unsuspecting home shoppers.
- Sites like Zillow and Realtor.com can be incredibly useful and informative but can be littered with bad and inaccurate information. I want to show you how to sift through the garbage and find the important information and homes you are looking for.
