Does the Realtor you found on the internet sell in the area you are looking?
Does the Realtor you found on the internet really sell in the areas they say? How to find out and save yourself huge disappointment.
You are like many internet searchers out there. You do a reasonable amount of searching - you research the area, the activities available, the schools, parks, property taxes, maybe even the restaurants. You even research to find the Realtor that looks to be the best for your needs. Their website says they serve your area...but do they?
There are no internet police determining whether Realtors actually have sold real estate in the areas they claim to service.
When Realtors create their websites they choose certain cities they clain to service. There are no internet police determining whether they actually know the areas , have made any sales in the areas or for that matter have ever even visited the areas they claim to service.
I've seen it time and time again. Especially here in Park City Ut with America's Largest Ski Resort, Park City Mountain Resort. Realtors all over Utah have Park City on their list of areas they service. They want to sell that expensive home here just like the local Park City agents do. There's one problem - not only do some of these agents live 30-70+ miles away, they do not know the areas nor the neighborhood nuances. Most have never sold a home in Park City or Deer Valley and many of these Realtors do not even have access to the Park City MLS.
I wish there was a little more truth and integrity in this industry. But until there is, the onus is on you, the buyer or seller to ask the right questions.
Asking questions can help ferret out the real local Park City Ut ( or any area) Realtors from the posers.
Here are a few questions you can ask to help determine whether the Realtor you see online that looks so great is for real or just hoping you won't know the difference.
