While third party sites like zillow.com and trulia.com continue to gain popularity they have one major problem…. They aren’t directly connected to our Reno and Sparks MLS system. Because they don’t have a direct feed their updates and information can be behind and incorrect. My most recent run in with a zillow.com client led to learning that the home they have been tracking for months, still active on zillow, was actually pending and about to close within the week.
So what can we do to get around this misinformation? ….Listingbook.
The Listingbook program has the same robust tools as sites like zillow.com or trulia.com but has a direct feed from our local MLS. So the updates are in real time. While many people still swear by zillow and trulia I’ve found my clients like using Listingbook for factual information and outside sites for all the fluff.
In the second video of our Listingbook series we go over choosing properties, viewing data, and selecting favorites.
