Homes For Sale in Spokane WA
Spokane Real Estate Websites
It’s getting close to that time of year when we sit down and make our New Year’s resolutions. Many people will make a resolution or goal to purchase a new home as they think about what they’d like to accomplish in the coming year. For some, this will be their first home and for others this will be an upgrade due to a growing family or a need for more space. In other cases, people may be looking to downsize as they have become overwhelmed with the time it takes to maintain their current home or they may be looking to downsize because their children have moved out and started a family of their own. Regardless of the reason, you may be wondering where to start your home search. The plethora of websites offering consumers access to homes for sale can be overwhelming in itself. How do you determine which site is right for you? Which sites will give you access to every home for sale listed by every agent or company?
You may be thinking about visiting a major national real estate website like Zillow.com, Trulia.com, Realtor.com or Homes.com. While these sites offer you a nice platform, a visually appealing presentation and often a substantial number of listings to peruse, they can also be quite frustrating. For example, most of the larger national real estate websites often show you homes that aren’t actually for sale or homes that have already been sold. Sometimes the homes that you find on these sites have sold over a year ago. This is due to the nature of their IDX feed, or Internet Data Exchange feed. They have an agreement with the local MLS(Multiple Listing Service) and as a result they are granted access to the homes and properties listed in that local MLS. Most of these national real estate websites update their IDX feed once or twice a week and if a home has sold or experienced a price reduction, it won’t be reflected on these sites until they update their IDX feed. Some of these national real estate sites even purposefully leave homes on their site that they know have already been sold. They do this because it gives the consumer the impression that that particular site offers them access to more listings than the competing sites. It’s our opinion that this is dishonest and shows a complete lack of integrity.
