Are you looking to buy a house? How can you ensure that you are looking in the best places? In this video, the presenter explains that you may not be seeing all the properties that match your criteria, as well as walking you through how you should be searching for houses for sale.
The first important concept explained by the presenter is that of an MLS. An MLS is a multi-listing service, and relators use these to feed their listings to various platforms.
Something that has been happening lately is that some big sites for finding real estate are being restricted from this process, meaning that they might not display all the listings available. This is a negative for the seller but could be advantageous for buyers who know how to find listings that don’t pop up on the most popular real estate sites.
So what’s the solution? The presenter emphasizes the importance of forming a relationship with a real estate professional. A realtor will have a list of properties that feeds directly from the MLS that has more thorough and accurate information about what properties are for sale and any updates to the listings. Additionally, some real estate professionals, through their websites, have databases that are synced with the MLS to get you the information you need.
