I have set up your own personal web page on our Honolulu Board of Realtors Multiple Listing Service (MLS) with your criteria for you on our according to your price range that your loan officer qualified you for. I also inserted your desired number of bedrooms/baths/parking, style, area, tenure, condition, interior sq/ft, land sq/ft and so forth.
‘What About This Property We Found on Another Website? is a question asked quite often and though it's a valid question.........
- Our MLS site has up to date information on all activity on our listings and those that you see on other sites may not be. The home ‘you were lucky to find' on another site may already be in contract or sold two years ago. It will be more discouraging to think you found your dream home or that you see a higher price for the sale of your home....only to find out that it has been sold awhile back and the website you are on did not update their information.
- Many would like to see (hope) that there are more properties in their price range than what is coming to them automatically through our search criteria we provide to the MLS system. The fact of the matter is that you can only buy what you can afford and only what is available within your criteria. If your Real Estate Agent is a member of the Honolulu Board of Realtors® then she/he will be subscribed to the MLS system and have access to all the listings that Realtors® and Realtor Associates® on the island of Oahu (Honolulu County) have input into the system.
- Many would like to see that their home is worth 50k more than what the current market value is. If the site you are looking at has not updated their information from two years ago when that property was sold then you are getting inaccurate information. Our MLS system reflects all sold properties that appraisers will be looking at too and unless someone has all cash and willing to pay above market value then you will not be able to get your home appraised for more than what the current market value is.
You can be at ease knowing that your agent will be able to ‘check on those listings' you saw on ‘other' websites that are not within our MLS system. You will then trust that your Realtor® is a member of their local board and getting up to date information which is then passed along to you.
Is Your Realtor® a member of the Honolulu Board of Realtors®?
