Your House Will Be on Every Major Real Estate Network
This can get really confusing, so let's separate fact from fiction.
- When I list your home for sale, It will go on one MLS, maybe two, if the location is close in proximity to other MLS's. The listing is then syndicated to all major real estate websites and thousands on real estate agent websites.
- Zillow was the first website to offer online home values. Unfortunately, The San Francisco Bay Area Zestimates are amongst the worst in the nation. Again, they make money selling leads to Realtors, so it really doesn't matter, unless you are selling a home and the buyer states that the "Zestimate" is really low. In this case you need a good agent to provide the information necessary to argue that reference.
The Choice is Yours to Syndicate Your Home For Sale
Ultimately, its up to the home owner if you want your home syndicated to all websites. You also have the choice to put a sign in the yard and hold open houses.
Every home is syndicated, but the not all information is good. I make sure that on all major real estate websites the description, features,
schools, a other selling points are up to date and that it fully describes the home.
Most MLS's have a very small section to describe the property. I make sure to provide the most information possible on the major websites so that your home is found by the highest number of buyers in your area.
