Due to reasons ranging from personal, to professional to academic, one often has to make choices like change in place of residence. Considering the magnitude of the decision, one has to gauge over various factors such as- Ideal location within the new city, correct agent/owner, track record, prices, area, age of construction etc.
To carefully look over all these factors by relying on acquaintances located at that location may not give complete knowledge. Also, there is no surety that the information they have is valid and authentic.
Housing.com enables you to compare prices depending upon area (size), locality and gauge the facilities available. One may seek furnished or unfurnished accommodation, and he/she may filter out based on his/preference. The map based search enables the buyer to understand the available conveniences like markets, schools, medical facilities etc. as they form a major part of one’s life.
Even for those who want to sell off their property or rent their property, portals provide a direct bridge to reach potential customers without having to pay huge sums of money to brokers by providing property free ads posting. In addition, a broker may push the prospective customer to buy property whose seller pays higher brokerage to the broker. Broker may try to convince the buyer in favor of the property for which he receives greater commission. This behavior is unfair to both the buyer and the sellers who cannot afford to pay exorbitant amounts to the broker.
Getting in touch with brokers is not only expensive but also lacks credibility. They give selective information and may gloss over the information about their own property. They may show properties that yield them maximum commissions. The broker’s commission is high and may dwindle one’s budget by adding extra weight on already high expense while relocating to a new home.
At this crossroad, an extremely transparent, user-friendly and credible real estate portal like Housing.com comes to rescue. It has no vested interest with any particular agent/broker. Hence, it gives you correct information. It also ensures that the broker has a clean track-record to protect the website users from frauds and over charging.
Online real estate portals provide information that is accurate, has been well researched and ensure that brokers/owners provide accurate information to the customers. They act as a steady bridge between sellers and customers and ensure that deal occurs without delay and false information. They ensure that customers contact the owner/broker only if they are pleased with various aspects of the particular property mentioned on the portal, so that their (broker’s, owner’s and customer’s) time doesn’t get wasted.
