How To Search & Find Your Next Home
Now that we know how important it is to let other agents know that you are professionally represented it's time to search for your home!
What's the best way to search?
- A word on 3rd party sites: www.zillow.com, www.realtor.com, www.trulia.com are perhaps the largest sites. These sites are in the business of selling advertising to agents. So, if you find a home here it is often hard to find the actual listing agent. Typically you end up contacting an agent who buys that zip code and NOT the actual listing agent so be careful searching 3rd party sites! If you search these sites, make sure you contact the actual listing agent.
