REAL ESTATE TIPS WITH S&L - 015

Lana & Sherri discuss scheduling a showing through a third party website.

When we put a new listing on the market, we upload them to the Multiple Listing Service (MLS). Then, many third party websites pull our listings to show on their website (Zillow, Realtor.com, etc.).

On these third party websites, there is an option to schedule a showing directly from the site. The problem with this, is it usually connects you with a different buyers agent that may not know everything about this property.

Best practice is to have your real estate agent that you are already working with make these showing appointments for you! If you do not have an agent, reach out to the listing agent directly to learn more about the property.
