Is Your Online House Search Giving You Accurate Information?

This past week one of my clients emailed asking to see a particular house. I emailed them back with information about the house and also corrected them on the street number of the house available. They were one digit off.

The night of the appointment, they called me from the street checking to see which house number it was. The day after our appointment, they sent me another email explaining that they thought they would be seeing a different house on the same street.

Go to for accurate listing informationThe confusion became clear when I asked them if they were signed up to receive automatic alerts from Zillow. The answer was "yes". That was how they heard about the house they wanted to see.

Unfortunately, what Zillow didn't tell them is that the house was sold in May! When I checked again, today, I saw that Zillow still lists that house "for sale". Of course, our Multiple Listing Service has indicated that house as sold since May.

I explained to my clients that if they are looking for accurate information on listings they should go to my website and search the listings there. All of the listing information on my website is imported directly from the Multiple Listing Service. If a house is sold, you want to know about it. No one has time to waste going out to see a house that isn't the one they thought was available!

If you want reliable information about the Market Value of your home, call me to schedule a Free Market Analysis. I'm local! I grew up in Sharon MA, and live and work here. I know the local real estate market and won't waste your time with inaccurate information.
