How to buy a home in a Seller's Market 

How exciting, you’re considering buying a home! Do you know what your local Real Estate market is experiencing?.  Real Estate Markets change and it's important to know what strategies work best for your particular local Real Estate Market.  All neighborhoods across the nation aren't experiencing a Seller's Market. Make sure you Realtor knows the market when they represent you during the home buying process. Here our discussion in on a Seller's Market that my local Coral Springs Florida market is experiencing.  There are many markets nationwide, however that are also experiencing the same market.

Time isn't on your side with a Seller's Market, therefore you must be fast, lightening fast, once you discover the home you love; you must get your offer presented right away..

You also need to be right on the money with your offering price. In a Seller's market the competition can be fierce so price it right.

Read more here about coming out on top when buying a home. I've also included other great Real Estate articles that compliment my article presented by +Debbie Drummond +Bill Gassett +Inlanta Mortgage - Madison and +Kyle Hiscock

Zillows Home Value Estimates ("Zestimates") - Accurate or Not?
Third-party real estate websites like Zillow and Trulia are household names in the industry.  While there are tools they provide that are helpful to buyers and sellers, their "Zestimates" are not one of them!

+Bill Gassett recently did an article talking about Zillow's home value estimates.  He points out in his article many reasons why consumers and real estate professionals shouldn't trust their estimates!

Las Vegas Real Estate Professional, +Debbie Drummond, then "piggy-backed" his article with an article reviewing how accurate they were in here local real estate market.  Not surprising to find out that Zillow's "Zestimates" are not very accurate!

I've decided to see how accurate Zillow's "Zestimates" are in my local Rochester, NY Real Estate market.  Guess what...not accurate here either and there is a very good chance they are not accurate nationwide!

Check out my article on the accuracy of Zillow's Home Value Estimates ("Zestimates") at http://rochesterrealestateblog.com/zillows-home-value-estimates-zestimates-accurate-or-not/.

If you find this article helpful, please consider sharing it socially.

3 Reasons Why Local Real Estate Websites are Better Than National Ones

This infograph and article are for you real estate professionals who work so hard to create a great website for your local market.

Most REALTORS®  have had a conversation with a home seller who has an unrealistic view of their home's value due to Zillow’s “Zestimates”, or the home buyer who has fallen in love with a home that they have found on Trulia, only to find out that it has been off the market for weeks. In an effort to help promote local real estate websites that display accurate local data, I created this infographic and blog post to help spread the word that local real estate websites have better data and are generally more helpful to real estate consumers.

If you have a real estate blog and/or website that you have worked hard to create, please consider sharing this article and let people know that there are great local real estate websites that have much to offer. 

Within the article there are links to +Bill Gassett's and +Debbie Drummond's  recent articles on the problems with Zillow’s “Zestimates”. They inspired me to take the time to put this together. I'll be using it in my buyer's drip email campaigns to remind subscribers that my website has better local data than the big national ones.

Search Banks & Compare Rates
Introduction

RateZip.com was launched in late 2007 by Paul Knag. Knag’s previous role was as a mortgage executive for American Home Mortgage, and founder of online lender MortgageSelect.com. When, like many major US mortgage companies, AHM fell victim to the financial crisis, RateZip was born.

The US banking crisis and financial shifts in recent years served in several ways as the force behind the creation and concept of RateZip. RateZip was founded as a way to bring transparency to the process of shopping for banking products. People no longer automatically trusted major banks or mainstream media.

Since 2007, RateZip has grown as a channel for people to make independent decisions about financial products in a smarter way.

Initially created as a method of automatically scouring the web for comparison data on mortgage rates, RateZip has expanded over the years, expanding its offline interest research team, adding deposit rates, bank profiles, insurance products, user reviews and building its editorial team of finance bloggers and personal banking experts.

Today, over 200,000 people visit RateZip.com every month to make decisions about banking and personal finance products.
