Zillow is Not a Substitute for Bend Real Estate Agents!
Zillow is not proving to be a substitute for Bend Real Estate Agents anytime soon!
CEO of Zillow Spencer Rascoff states that Real Estate Agents are an integral and necessary component in the transaction of buying or selling a home! He also believes that this will never change.
Even though we are living in an internet-based era, Real Estate agents provide a lot of value during the transaction process – in the same respect the way that investment bankers provide value in IPO’s.
The way in which Real Estate agents become successful has changed immensely since the boom of the internet based housing sites began. Since people of the community are able to access the same information the Real Estate professionals have, this has forced Real Estate agents to become more of a transaction consultant, an expert of the local market and an exceptional negotiator rather than an information gatekeeper.
These Real Estate agents hold valuable information about the local market and housing values, this is simply priceless information when it comes to investing in the housing market. The internet is simply not able to offer the same benefits that a Real Estate agent can.
