Searching for a new home can feel like a daunting task, especially in the current Summer of 2021 market, but don’t let that deter you. There are more homes for sale than you may see at first glance, so be sure to take all 4 steps listed below to ensure you have seen ALL the homes for sale to find your next dream home!
Step #1 The Usual Suspects: Zillow, Trulia, and Realtor.com
The first place most home buyers begin to search is online with Zillow, Trulia, and Realtor.com where you search for current listings, coming soon listings, as well as pre-foreclosures…but don’t stop there!
Step #2 rDigz.com: Where Top Teams List Homes First
Download the rDigz app! The rDigz app not only has current and coming soon listings, it also gives a sneak peek preview of homes not yet listing on the market.
Step #3 Ask Top Listing Agents For Upcoming Inventory
Reach out to top listing agents in the area you are searching for. Local top agents meet with new sellers every week. These new sellers are often at least a couple weeks away from being ready to list their home for sale so they are not available to see on any searches yet. These are called “off market properties” that only their listing agent knows about.
Step #4 Ask a Sibbach Team Member to Dive into Your Preferred Neighborhood
Sibbach Team members will go above and beyond to find homes for sale in your preferred neighborhood. This may include mailing letters of interest to an entire neighborhood, or even personally knocking on doors in the neighborhood letting homeowners know there is a buyer for their home if they are considering selling.
