30 Things Zillow and Trulia Can't do for Northeast Ohio Buyers and Sellers

 

Zillow and Trulia are resource tools for searching or initial information gathering of the home purchase or home selling process.  While Zillow and Trulia can be helpful to the home buyer or home seller, there is a lot they cannot do.  Read our blog post on How to Use Trulia and Zillow When Buying or Selling in Northeast Ohio.

Zillow, Trulia and other web based real estate sites have given Realtors great help.  They show the public just how improtant the magic we work is for them

Thanks Dorie! I appreciate that! Dorie Dillard  I have no idea how the AR gods pick their featured posts or how they would even notice it. Maybe, it has something to do with the likes and comments ???

If you can't see your value as a real estate agent, it time to re-evaluate. And too much information can be really damaging if misused. Great points!

Great post Christine! Should have been featured!

Zillow and Trulia have their place and can be helpful resourses, however I real estate professional is the BEST resourceful to meet ALL the needs of the consumer!

Barbara Todaro - Thank you! I'm not that active on here, so it wouldn't be one to get featured. I think the powers that be tend to feature from those who are known on AR. I'm glad you like it :)
