When searching for a home online, it's always better to use a local real estate professional's website rather than a national websites. Why? 

National websites tend to focus on a bigger geographic area and the data is not as specific as the data you'd find on a local website put out by a local agent. You'll also find a lot of advertisements on national websites, which is where a majority of their revenue comes from. They also generate revenue by selling your information to third parties.

When you look at local websites, you won't have to put up with advertisements and you don't have to worry about your info getting sold off to any third parties. The information you provide is used by the local agent to contact you and give you whatever information you're looking for.


The third reason to use local sites rather than a national site is that you get a local real estate professional attached to that website. On our website, for example, you find that we have a lot of neighborhood data already populated in there along with school information. We also break up the information by neighborhood to speed up the process for someone searching for a home in a particular area.

If you have any other questions about the benefits of using a local real estate search website over a national site or you're thinking about buying or selling a home in the northwest Florida area, give me a call or send me an email. I'd be happy to help you.
