If you are thinking of buying or selling in Orlando where do you turn to for information. Like 80%+ others you check the internet first. You may be checking out areas of town that are close to where you work or go to school. You might be checking to see how much your neighbor is asking for their home, or how much that house sold for. Regardless of the type of information you are looking for, much of the data is on the internet. That is especially true in Orlando which is one of the most wired cities in America. The problem is...where do you go on the internet for the most up to date and accurate information?
There are a number of third party websites available to help with your data gathering such as Zillow and Trulia, and Realtor websites like Realtor.com and Remax.com. Realtor.com and Remax.com pretty much are marketing websites to advertise the listings that are for sale. Sites like Zillow and Trulia have information about only some of the homes for sale, and they provide public information about sold properties as well. All of the sites now offer some type of property valuation tool, but none of them have the most current and accurate information.
Now, thanks to the Orlando Realtors and Mid Florida Regional MLS we are able to provide consumers with the most current information about all the homes for sale and closed sales going back up to one year. You can access the website by going to www.DavidWelch.com/OrlandoMLS. This site offers terrific search tools that let consumers search the available listings just like an agent would. It also lets you search for agents based upon the area where you are looking. Buyers and Sellers can use the valuation tool to search for comparable properties and determine likely values of the home you are interested in buying or selling. You can also pick and choose the properties that you think are most comparable. This site was modeled after the Houston Area Realtor site HAR.com. HAR.com is used by more than 50% of consumers researching real estate in Houston. We are hoping that you will find our new site to be a great resource.
