Why Buyers Cannot Trust The Accuracy of Available Homes Online | Colorado Springs Barb Schlinker


I’m Barb Schlinker with Your Home Sold Guaranteed
Realty and we help home buyers find a perfect home. And at the end of this video, I’ll be sharing
with you how home buyers can get insider access to all the homes in their criteria from all
the real estate companies, even homes that they cannot find on the internet. Did you know that most home buyers will be
searching online for 12 or more different websites? Why do they do that? Because they’re afraid of missing out on the
perfect home. Even according to industry experts, national
websites are not the best options to find a home, including Zillow and Realtor.com. So here are the 5 worst places to search for
a home. Number 1, Zillow! Did you know that when Zillow has a home online
and they know that it’s under contract, they never show that it’s under contract. So what that means is the seller has already
accepted a contract with a buyer, so the new buyer is highly unlikely to get that home. The number 2 worst place is Realtor.com, both
Realtor.com and Zillow have every address in the country on their website and most of
them are not for sale, but you wouldn’t know that unless you read the fine print. How does that help buyers? The number 3 worst place are foreclosure websites
or pre-foreclosure websites. Most home sellers facing a foreclosure, they
don’t want to talk to anybody. Even though these could represent really good
deals, most home sellers are trying to work out the situation with the bank and oftentimes
they’ll be led by the bank all the way until it forecloses that the bank’s going to help
them and work it out. So when the bank does take it back and foreclosure
though, they don’t really put the home right back on the market. It can be a month, it can be a year. The number 4 worst place is if an agent says,
“Oh, I’m an area expert or a listing agent”, and that’s because they may not really be
an expert. They might have one sale in that neighborhood
or drove through the neighborhood. Where are the best places for home buyers
to search for homes online? Well, first of all, there are about a thousand
MLS’s in the country and all of them have a public place for buyers to search for the
actual available homes. The real estate agents have to indicate on
those websites whether or not the home is under contract. Buyers want to know that so they know whether
or not they can get the home. You can really save yourself a lot of time
if you hire a great real estate agent that not only knows the market but can actually
go out and find you the home. Did you know that as many as 30% of the homes
that are sold never go in to the multiple listing service? Yet, a majority of real estate agents shun
the idea of reaching out to people in order to sell homes like that are offered for sale
by owner or homes that were formerly listed but are no longer on the market because a
lot of agents are just not trained on how to negotiate to get their own commission. Talk about having the home buyers miss out
on the perfect home. What would the buyers say if they really knew
the truth, which is that most agents only give buyers access to homes that they already
have access to. How is that valuable to home buyers? So when you become a VIP buyer with our team,
here’s what you will receive. Number 1, insider access to all the homes
in your search criteria from all the real estate companies. Number 2, access to homes just like the ones
that you’re working directly with the listing agent. And number 3, access to homes that are not
online. And number 4, once we find you a home, we’re
going to work very hard to get you the home if you love that home. You know, recently I had a really cute listing
where this one buyer made 4 offers, her offers kept getting higher and higher. She wasn’t up against competition. Her offer was $10,000 over asking price and
seller was willing to go under contract with her, but her agent failed to get her the house
because they advise the buyer not to sign the agreement because of some really particular
wording that was very important to the agent and probably didn’t mean anything to the buyer. How is that helping a home buyer? You know, to date no other home like that
one has gone on the market and now some other buyer is getting that home. So we would never let our own opinions about
real estate get in the way of helping the buyer get the perfect home that’s for them. But unfortunately, these types of things actually
happen to home buyers often because the agent thinks that they know best and here’s what
we provide our buyers. Number 1, we’ll help them find the best financing. Number 2, we’ll recommend some great vendors
like inspectors that we trust. Did you know in Colorado you don’t have to
be licensed to be an inspector? Great home warranties to cover their systems,
will help negotiate to get them the best home and then during the inspection, we’ll tell
them what to watch out for. You know, there are certain things that are
very local to the area, like in this area. We have to worry about radon, we have to worry
about hail, we have to worry about other things, but there are certain things that are just
normal wear and tear. So what is a problem and what needs to be
fixed. We’ll give them our advice on that. So to become a VIP buyer with our firm and
