In order to search the Charleston MLS, you have to be a licensed Charleston real estate agent but the next best thing is using Advanced Search Features where you can actually search like like an agent.
What you are actually using to search is the IDX (Internet Data Exchange) feed updated daily directly from the Charleston MLS.
The benefits are pretty obvious. Instead of just narrowing your search to price range, bedrooms, square footage or most of the typical criteria you might find elsewhere, you can really narrow your search to find exactly what you might be looking for whether it is the master down, neighborhood amenities, lender owned or almost anything.
Now, about that nagging little (well, it’s actually not so little) problem of data accuracy. A lot of people like to search on the popular national real estate sites Zillow and Trulia.
Maybe you care and maybe you don’t but if you are do (and why wouldn’t you), this is just in from the WAV Group’s independent study of website accuracy.
“The WAV Group today published the results of an independent study of 11 major markets that found local real estate brokerage websites give consumers the most complete, accurate and timely information about homes for sale. The study evaluated sites from three local brokerages with real estate agents who help consumers buy and sell homes, comparing listing search results to those found on two national portals, Trulia and Zillow, which operate almost exclusively online.”
Oh, and by the way, you aren’t going to be treated like a “lead” here; no registration is necessary and you can contact me when you’re ready.
