Searching online for a home to buy can be fun and exciting but is the information accurate? Many times we have clients looking on KSL and Zillow/Trulia to find properties, what's the problem? Glad you asked. The problem with these websites are that they're not always up to date. Also, for Zillow/Trulia, when they show something that has sold, many times a property didn't necessarily sell for the amount that they show. Utah is a non-disclosure state, meaning the sold price isn't public, so unless the agent went into the listing on Zillow/Trulia and updated that, it's probably wrong. Several times a property a client found on one of those sites are under contract or have sold several months ago or not on the market anymore. Some of the most accurate and up to date information is found on the Wasatch Front MLS, www.utahrealestate.com. Also properties on the MLS already have some kind of buyers agent compensation agreed to.
With the Wasatch Front MLS, we have the ability to send you properties automatically within the search criteria that you are looking for right when that property goes live. It also sends you properties, in your search criteria, if a property has a price change or updated pictures, info, etc. This keeps you up to date on what is available and of course we are there to help you put that offer together for it.
