…do you preview per week, Vivienne?
On average, I preview 10 houses a week.. That does not include the showings I go on with clients, and it does not include the open house I market.
The MLS, or any of the other real estate search tools can tell you a whole host of facts about a house. They can show you some very pretty photos (or very ugly photos – Much love to terrible real estate agent photos) they can provide you with a wealth of information about neighborhoods and school districts and tax bills.
But, there is no substitute for being physically present in a home and knowing a market.
I know the inventory in my market!
