Who doesn’t love looking at houses online? The beautiful photos, the perfect furnishings, and the incredible backyards are inviting—even enchanting—but are those photos really telling the entire story?
Before you fall in love with the ideal Americana 4 bedroom 2.5 bath colonial, keep in mind the reality—the photos aren’t the entire picture. Do you know what’s behind the property line, or next door? That’s where working with an expert in local real estate is essential to finding your dream home and making sure it isn’t located in the midst of a nightmare.
It’s fun and easy to look online as long as the website you are using provides the most current listing information. The best resource? Use a real estate website that has a live connection to the local Multiple Listing Service so it can provide the most up-to-date information on available properties.
