Are you shopping for a new home in Denver, Colorado? In this day and age most people find their new home online. But with so many home search sites available, which is the best?
Most homebuyers looking for a new home in Denver will likely start their home search on a well known national home search site. A site like Realtor.com, Zillow, Trulia or Redfin. These are sites that are highly advertised and recognized.
Unfortunately, homebuyers aren’t well served by these big national sites. I’ll tell you more about that in a minute. I don’t want to wait any longer to tell you the best home search website for Denver area homes!
The very best website to search for Denver homes is www.REColorado.com. REColorado.com is the consumer site of the Denver MLS. Why go to any other website when you can go direct to the source. This is the website where all real estate agents selling homes in Denver enter listing information.
There are two major reasons that you want to use REColorado.com in your home search.
ReColorado.com is absolutely the most accurate home search website for Denver area homes. It’s like getting the news right from the horse’s mouth.
Most other home search websites get their information from and IDX feed from the MLS, but this does take some time. REColorado.com is updated almost immediately after an agent enters a new listing or makes a change to a listing.
National sites like Zillow are notoriously inaccurate. It can be frustrating for a homebuyer to find that perfect home on Zillow only to find out that the home actually went under contract two weeks ago. Don’t waste your time on these national websites.
2. REColorado.com does not sell your information
Yep, that’s right REColorado.com does not sell your information! Did you know that sites like Zillow and Realtor.com sell your information? Yep, that’s right, they sure do! That’s one of the many ways they make money. Realtors will pay big money to know who is searching for homes. And these sites have already pre sold your information before you even start your home search. Almost immediately when a user creates an account their information is passed on to a local Realtor or multiple Realtors who have paid good money to get it. If that Realtor is on the ball, your phone will be ringing minutes later.
The Denver MLS, however, is not trying to make any money off of you. They make their money by charging agents to be members and use their service. They provide their home search services to you, the homebuyer, free. There is no hidden agenda.
I hope this recommendation helps you find your new home!
