Why can’t I find a house in Frisco TX that is available?

We have served clients from all over the country and some from another country. Those who are not familiar with our beloved city of Frisco, we helped to be the unofficial ambassador and guide. We showed them what is around and about the city.

Our clients does the usual  thing that everyone does when they are looking for houses. They go online, google houses for sale in Frisco TX, view houses on websites like Trulia,  Zillow, Realtor.com or some other sites. Most clients will ooohed and ahhhed over the houses they see only to find that they are no longer available. They get disappointed and stressed.

Why can’t I find a house that is available, some may ask. Well, the answer is simple. Most of these websites does not update their information regularly. Most of these websites will pull data on a scheduled basis. Since the data is enormous (thousands of listings information and photos), most of the websites do not update regularly.

We have some consumer who contact us about a listing they saw and we pulled it up, it was sold months ago and some even years ago. No Joke!

What is the best way to know what is on the market? Work with a Realtor in the area you are interested in. Not just any Realtor. All Realtor have (or should have, I should say) access to the Multiple Listing Service data. They can pull up the latest information about a listing.

So, why a Realtor in the area? I had recently spoken to an agent about their listing that my client was interested and she made a comment that she doesn’t not know the area well and didn’t believe that houses we getting contract that fast. That raised a red flag to me if I was a buyer.

Point is, work with a Realtor to get the latest data about the house you are interested in and work with a Realtor who knows the area you are interested in.

If you are looking to purchase your first or next home in the Frisco TX area, give us a call, we will be glad to serve you.
