How accurate is Columbus real estate online?
You as a buyer or seller or just someone interested in local real estate have access to a lot of information online about homes for sale:
Above are the big three... Realtor.com is the biggest of the three, most traffic, but Realtor.com has a lot more listings than the other two. There's lots of little places where the information about "Columbus homes for sale" is syndicated. Some examples are: Oodle, Hot Pads...
Google Base... is a biggie. I believe but could be wrong that RealBird... the little houses on RealBird and the information about them comes from Google Base. There are things I really, really like about RealBird. I love the cute little houses. I hate the fact that the information is so bad. A price reduction on a home taken January 18, 2011 still shows at the old price on January 26, 2011. RealBird itself has the listing with the correct info but the mapping does not show consumers the correct information about the price reduction. A listing taken off the market in December 2010 still shows up (top snippet.) The listing agents have removed the home from the MLS. It does not show up on Columbus real estate brokerage or agents sites. It is not for sale. Sold homes show up as active. It's a mess.
