Real Estate Professionals - Truth Helps Consumers Make Good Decisions

Real Estate Professionals - Using Truth To Help Consumers Make Good Decisions

A professional, one who is doing the business of real estate every day, knows their market, knows the trends, and knows the best buys.  A graph like the one below is what a professional has in their head.

And, inside the main data reports are lots of subsets of data that get more specific by neighborhood, price point, bedroom count, square footage, lot size, school system, etc.  A professional in the real estate business can provide clarity, understanding, and truth for non-professionals who want to make good decisions.

I am often asked, "How's the market?"  Sometimes people are just making conversation and sometimes they are asking what is going on in their neighborhood.  Either way, without data, the answer is just an opinion.  Either way, if the answer is not based on truth, it is a guess.

A real estate professionals is worth more today than they ever have been before.  With all the places to find values, estimates, and pictures of homes for sale, valid information is not easy to find.  

Keep this question in mind when searching for real estate online: What is the site I am on, selling? If the site is not owned and operated by a real estate professional, they may be just be selling ads - and they are more possibly selling you and your email or phone number.

Great graph to show what is going on in your area. Yes there are a ton of websites out there with information about real estate, but the local agents have the real scoop on what is going on in their local neighborhoods.

Thanks for the comment. It is more than the scoop, as you know. Some data is only found in MLS. The public is not being told the whole story.  I like it when it clicks with one of my clients. You can see the wheels turn and their mind say, "Of course, they are selling ads and not real estate."
