10 Things Real Estate Listing Sites Won't Say
Once upon a time, house hunting meant perusing local newspapers and being led through properties by a real-estate agent. Nowadays, most home buyers head straight to their computers: A record 90% searched online this year, up from 65% a decade ago, according to the National Association of Realtors.

As an architect, I'm constantly searching real estate listings online for the best looking homes. It's fun to see what other architects have done with the architectural facades. I'm very keen on using only environmentally friendly materials for all my structures. Number 8 pointed out the difficulty with using the on site map for the listing. One way around that is to simply enter the home address into Google and you will be given a curb side view of both house and neighborhood. This is an ideal situation for anyone house hunting from afar. Using this technique, you can view architectural facades; yard size; surrounding homes and community. All these things play a role in your decision to actually view a home or consider investing.
Wow, I would never had guessed that this would be the truth. I'm just glad that realtors in Springfield, IL aren't like that. Thanks a ton!
Fantastic Information !! I appreciate your information.
I agree with you that 65% listing are not available on online. Most real estate agents are places homes for sale but 23% are not available at the time of buy.
Wide choices of house for sale Edmonton offers. Different categories of houses can be found on their website. Thank you!

That's the sad truth of online listing. They will just list it even if its not available so the interested buyer will contact him but he will just say that he has one that is better from the listing!
