Hire a REALTOR! Don't search the Net!

By
Real Estate Agent with The Mustafa Group

If you want minimize the time it takes to buy or sell a home [in this market] please suggest that buyers and sellers don't start their search ANYWHERE but with a REALTOR.

We know 90% of home buyers and sellers start their search on the Internet. We want desperately to compare the homes 'for sale' for our exciting purchase. Some may want to compare where they should price their home as they consider putting their home on the market. If you think the Internet is a "disinterested" third party,  this couldn't be further from the truth. If you want only to have an internet site, call me so that I can give you one that will have the most updated information, 216-408-1513, it's my direct line and I'm always available. If you want to work with a Real Estate Professional and local area expert, hire a REALTOR.

The Internet has become completely flooded with irrelevant, (paid for) sponsored search results that may have nothing to do with what your interested in finding. Past, Present and Future real estate listings can be found on line. It's all mixed together today to capture the attention of buyers, sellers, realtors, brokers etc. and the giving of your e-mail address with some personal information is just NOT a good idea. Companies have paid to come up on your search first, second or third place, sometimes based on where you live, just to sidetrack and sell you something else in the end. It's a QUAGMIRE.

Beware that some search results may return sites with viruses, sponsored sales pitch links, infomercials, tracking cookies, buy me's, click me's, and you still haven't gotten an answer to or original questions. It can be overwhelming and a complete frustration.  Real Estate can be simple, with a simple real estate professional. MESSAGE: HIRE A REALTOR!

Relevant real estate searches starts with live communication. It requires the "human factor" that the internet oftentimes just can't provide that.

When you are ready to save some valuable time and have a personal conversation with an area expert who's licensed and ready to help, feel free to call me direct.

I'm Cindy Mustafa, I'm a REALTOR and I will be happy to organize a search for any buyer or sellers. I'll be the advocate and commit myself completely, to your goals. I only ask that buyers and sellers are ready to make the same commitment. Otherwise, respectfully....call me second.

My direct phone number is: 216-408-1513.

Cindy, this is certainly a good read for all the FSBO’s that think buying and selling real estate is eaier than an oil change. You NAILED the human element right on the head. Cheers

Cindy, great post on why to use a Realtor. I agree that much of what buyers are finding on the Internet is misleading or incorrect information.

I so agree - but buyers want to go it alone and believe they a have the inside scoop on the listings. I can't count the number of times buyers ask me about a property they found on Trulia, Zillow, etc and probably wondering how I missed it - only to tell them those sites are not up to date - and the property in question is not available for sale.

Thanks Erna and Chuck for your comments.

Linda,

For me, the buyer is ready to buy when they have called me. That's also about the same time I tell them the truth about the internet and all the VALUABLE time they can have if we have a 'needs assessment' and I set up the search to share with them ONLY the listings that meet thier needs and compliment thier lifestyle.

I do the same for sellers and they LOVE IT!

 

Best Wishes,
