Giving Realtors a Bad Name

I always like to see how other agents are trying to get people to fill out forms on websites. I received a post card in the mail from a local agent today that said “Find Out what homes sold for on your street Right Now!” and then gave a website address and code. I went to the address, put in the code, and then I was greeted with a form to fill out to request “a report”.

I then went to the home page of the site and it let me enter in an address and here is what I got back:

‘We’re sorry. We do not have recent sold data for your neighborhood available for display. However, we have REALTORS® in your area who would gladly help you with your home valuation. Request a home value report and a REALTOR® in your area will send you a detailed report showing pictures, home sizes, amenities and prices of recently sold homes, as well as homes currently for sale near your home.”

So, no info RIGHT NOW as promised.

I really try to set my website apart from other agent sites by providing REAL info. If you want home sales, use my Market Snapshot report or sign up for the VIP service to get Just Sold reports. The Market Snapshot report is automated and takes information directly from the Central Coast MLS system. Since I introduced the Market Snapshots a few months ago, hundreds of reports have been provided. If you enter in an address on the Central Coast, you should get your report within a minute or so (the system does not provide reports for other areas).

If you know someone that is looking for real estate information, make sure to tell them about my site(s)!
