Real Estate Mythbusters

We are living in a wonderful time in history….the information age!  

How much trouble did you get in in high school because you refused to memorize all of those innocuous bits of information?  Today that stuff is right at our fingertips – literally!

With that, the dynamics of the real estate business have also completely shifted in the past 10 years.  Realtors used to be the gatekeepers of the information…you want to see houses you need us – we literally had an actual “listing book”! Haha it all seems so archaic now. 

Today’s consumers want instantaneous access and today’s consumers are more educated than ever….and you know what…I Love It!!! It makes my job so much easier. 

We are a team – you and me.   The more you know, the better I can help you.

So with all of the free information out there…the most important thing is how do you interpret it?  Most of it is good, right, people generally are good and have good intentions…BUT, you know how it goes in today’s age of “fake news” haha there is also a lot of stuff out there that is a little misleading or out of context.

So let’s dive into my video and bust up these 4 myths:

Myth 1 – BUSTED! – You can go on Zillow and work directly with the listing agent and save yourself some money because the seller won’t have to pay a buyer’s agent.

Myth 2 – BUSTED! - I will only show you houses if you are pre-approved.

Myth 3 - BUSTED! – Pulling your credit will lower your credit score.

Myth 4 - BUSTED! – You can just wait 6 months or a year for your credit score to go up so you can get a better interest rate than you are being offered today.
