Do you know how to intelligently search for a home? In other words, do you know how to effectively search without wasting time on poor websites or syndicated MLS sites with inaccurate information? Do you know how and where to search for answers to your questions an area or buying a home, and do you know the difference between credible information and unreliable information?
Why is this important? When you’re retiring, the last thing you need is a nightmare that costs you money and creates tremendous stress for you! I don’t doubt your ability as a buyer to make wise decisions for yourself and your family, provided you have accurate information and you get good advice from your Realtor. But this is where many buyers fall down. They don’t know where and how to get good and accurate information and credible advice when buying a home.
For example, many buyers are using Zillow to do their home search. I have written elsewhere about the grotesquely inaccurate information on Zillow. The list of problems with Zillow is well known across the country, but buyers still use it. [Read Bad Zillow Information.]
I strongly urge buyers to use a Sequim MLS site that includes all the local listings and that is 100% accurate because it pulls all its information from the source listings.
The single most reliable real estate information on questions buyers ask all the time is found at the largest Sequim real estate blog. If you are on a mission to search for your retirement home, you definitely want accurate and reliable information about buying Sequim homes. You’ll find thousands of articles written for buyers at Sequim Real Estate Blog. These are carefully written by a Sequim real estate attorney (ret.) and broker who has lived in the area for 20 years.
There are multiple links to other reliable and accurate sources in the right margin of that real estate blog. In addition to all these accurate resources, Chuck Marunde is available as your personal advisor, and that means you can be assured that you are getting honest and professional advice you need to avoid a nightmare scenario. It also means you will be equipped to make wise decisions as you search for a home.
