While that figure’s not surprising, it’s important to note that in a seller’s market, what’s online right now may not be there tomorrow. In fact, the information on many listings may be out of date the instant they’re posted. That’s where your real estate agent comes in. Your agent can get updates and information as it’s happening- before it shows up on the web. And in a seller’s market, getting info a few hours ahead of time could make the difference between finding your dream home and missing out on a great deal.
