Internet Home Buying #2

Let's cover another pitfall of internet home buying and searching. When you search for the perfect home online you may be missing out. The internet is black and white, cut and dried... if you search for 3 bedroom, 2 bath between $200,000-250,000 then you might miss out on the perfect 3 bedroom 1 and 3/4 bathroom that's priced to sell at $199,000. Also some search engines take 2-3 days to pull new listing information. You may miss out on the perfect house that was a steal just because another buyer's Realtor called them the second the house was listed and offered for sale, you didn't even know it was for sale yet. Many Realtors also know of homes that will be coming up for sale soon too. Maybe the sellers are still cleaning and decluttering, or they are waiting until the weather gets better... these homes you won't find on any website until they're ready.
