We work in conjunction with CondoInvestment.com to promote the AL / FL Gulf Coast and have recently implemented closed sales information. The NAR (National Association of Realtors) has changed laws in the past year allowing us to publish recently sold real estate. Larger media websites, like Realtor.com and Zillow have been able to share this info for years using 3rd party vendors, but actual Realtors have been unable to benefit from the use of these recently sold details. Now that this is allowed, agents and their marketing efforts can include the usage recent sales information, but there are differences.
One of the main differences is that the larger websites use these 3rd party vendors which can, and often is, inaccurate due to the various channels needed to access the details. An agent website, like CondoInvestment.com, is an actual “real estate website” and the recently SOLD info actually comes directly from the MLS (Multiple Listing Service) ensuring accuracy. We’re also able to structure the info allowing users to filter using sold prices and closed dates making research easy and much more useful.
The same holds true for listings. The large websites use 3rd party vendors to access listings as well. The same complications are true for listings and accuracy is ensured because the details are pulled from the actual MLS. With these changes, some MLS boards all are simply not allowing these large websites to even have access to the counties listings which throws off everything. It makes sense – is you’re using comprehensive stats that lack even a single MLS board, the stats for everything are off.
