When you search for real estate for sale in Murphy NC as a generic search in Google, you often times get a national list of real estate websites. The common ones you commonly see first is zillow.com and trulia.com. However, those are far from the best. Nothing can be more frustrating for a buyer than when they’re looking at a home online, call on it for more details, and find it has been sold or is no longer available – and it happens all the time!
We knew those searches often had bad data available on them. This weekend, I was reading one of our real estate trade magazines and came across some interesting statistics on those websites I wanted to share with you. It said:
The WAV [Group in Seattle] study found local brokerage sites display 100 percent of agent-listed homes for sale, compared to about 80 percent for third-party aggregators Trulia and Zillow. Local sites also show newly listed homes for sale seven to nine days earlier than national portals, and, unless there’s a glitch, local sites almost never list a home as ‘active’ once it has been sold. Some 36 percent of listings that appear as active on the national portals are no longer for sale, the WAV study showed.
