Most consumers these days begin their real estate search for homes, and real estate agents online. There are so many "portals" or web sites that promote themselves as the biggest, best, user friendly, etc., that often the consumer gets confused because the data they find turns out to be inaccurate and outdated. More frequently there have been many "scams" that lure a consumer to send or wire money to the owner or another person directly and the keys will follow in the mail.
An experienced consumer with such inaccurate and outdated information is often frustrated with the real estate salesperson, who has no control over the data the consumer may have found on unreliable web sites.
The solution to avoid inaccurate and outdated information on real property is to work with a licensed real estate salesperson, preferably a Harford County REALTOR® who has the most accurate, reliable and up to date information on listing prices, market status and comparable sales data.
If you do search the internet for real estate information, rely on www.REALTOR.com , which is more integrated with the MLS systems nation wide. REALTORS® use it and it is updated every 15 minutes.
