In 2020 97% of the homebuyers use the internet to find their home.
I know what you’re thinking… Do newspapers still exist?
I’m sure if you checked the browser history of the above 97%, we would see online services like Zillow, Tulia, and Realtor.com.
These are excellent choices to begin the journey towards finding your new home.
A better choice would be selecting a Lender. Why?
Homebuyers need a budget (ie loan approval), and they can help you come up with one. Lenders will get to know you. They will ask you questions outside of debt-to-income ratios, and paystubs. Lenders are going to approve you for a loan designed for you.
Next step would be to select a Realtor. Why?
Unlike those fancy websites, Realtors will get to know you.
On the website you put a 4 in the little space marked bedrooms, but they don’t know what you really want is two bedrooms, an office space, dog shower for sparkey, and a workout room for that Peloton bike and Yoga balls.
Realtors are along for the journey focused on achieving your goals.
