Ends Fruitless, Online Home Searches

The situation

More buyers than ever look for Hampton Roads real estate via online home searches. And why shouldn't they? The Internet is readily available whenever buyers have time. When the effort is made to find up-to-date information about existing home listings, it should be rewarded and frequently that just isn't the case.

The problem(s)

Often times a buyer may take the time to painstakingly sift through listings via Zillow and Trulia, the well-known names in real estate websites. However, upon calling to learn more about the found properties, callers may discover that these homes are sold, have been pulled off the market or are under contract. So now these found houses the buyer is excited about are no longer available. This process can sometimes leave a sour taste for would-be homeowners.

The solution

"If you're a serious buyer or seller, use an agent's website," writes Sam DeBord in his article entitled Why You Can't Find That Home for Sale on Zillow or Trulia. offers a comprehensive, up-to-date home search that only shows active listings currently for sale. No more looking through properties that may or may not be available. Now buyers know they can count on one source to have the most recent information sought. Don't waste time with big websites when has the complete scoop on Hampton Roads real estate.
