Searching for a Home
Make sure you’re making accurate and using updated applications in your online home search. Hi, this Fawn Bertram with Homes by Fawn and Hawaii Life.
Many Oahu area shoppers have found online public home search engines to be outdated and unreliable. It is important that you understand how these websites work along with their strengths and weaknesses.
Looking for Homes Online
First, many of these websites are using large geographical algorithms. They cannot take into account the Oahu area’s specifics necessary for the proper home search and equity evaluations.
Also, third party websites can be outdated, sometimes by weeks or even years. Since there are no restrictions or regulations on who can post, anyone can list a home for sale. So the information could be inaccurate, and there could even be questionable intentions on the other side.
If you choose to meet someone on one of these websites, please let someone know who you are meeting, where you are meeting, and try to meet in a public space if possible. If you’d like to know how to best to run your online home search, click on this link. This comes directly from the MLS.
