A: Property search websites like Zillow and Trulia, as well as an agent’s personal site, created the most profound impact on real estate transactions during the last decade.
These websites have revolutionized the way buyers search for property. They make home information available to everyone. According to Inman News, 90 percent of people use a property search website when shopping for or selling a home.
When searching for properties, it is better to use your agent’s home search website. A good agent will have a website that allows their clients to search for homes. These websites share the client’s search history with the real estate agent, providing insights about that client’s needs and wants for their next home.
My property search website (www.BuyEastBay.com) allows you to search for timely and accurate information on all the homes listed in the Bay Area, including Alameda, Contra Costa, San Francisco and Marin County.
