Local Realtor, Local Knowledge - Unbeatable Combination

Let me add to this  that while on the appointment, a Local Buyer's Agent will also make knowledgable comments that help in the decision making process. The commentary starts early and continues through to the settlement. No photo? The Buyer's Agent may have feedback on that, too.

The internet is an enormous reservoir of real estate related information. Some of it is actually pretty good, and a lot of it is confusing. What a lot of consumers put aside when they’re looking online is the local, and hyperlocal aspects of many communities.

After all, a house is a house, whether it’s in Crofton, MD, or any other community. All I can say about that is...maybe, maybe not. Sometimes the pictures you see online can be deceiving.

I got a call today from somebody wanting to see a rental here in Crofton. As soon as he told me the address, I was pretty sure he was going to back out of a showing. Why, because I knew that what he was looking at online looked like a three level townhouse, but really wasn’t.

Maybe you can make a two level piggyback unit look like a three level townhouse with creative photography, but you’re not going to fool a local Realtor. When I explained to him that the unit he called about was a two level piggyback, with another condo underneath, he was quite surprised. “But it looks like a three level townhouse from the picture.”

As I suspected, he backed out of previewing that house, but we’re set up to go out next week to look at real three level townhomes.

If you’re a buyer or a renter, don’t go it alone. Contact a local Realtor in the community you’re interested in...you won’t be disappointed.

Wow, I love this message. We do highlight the pros and cons of a home. Some things are not obvious at first glance going through the home during all the excitement of perhaps finally finding the right home. But the Inspector will see the items… more
