Real estate professionals are in a continuous battle with sources of faulty data.
One of those sources is "They said" or "Someone."
Another is the neighbor on the street, the self declared expert..
And then sites like Trulia an Zillow.
Trulia for instance states the average SOLD price in Greenville is $117,000
Trulia, for instance states the average SOLD price for zip 27858 is $131,750
(Is not sold price much more relevant than listed price?)
Both will prove to be significantly incorrect.
Having access to reliable, responsible data, such as what is available through the local Multiple Listing Service is essential.
If you are serious about making a home purchase, you need to pick up the phone and give Deborah a call. (If only she had provided a telephone number)
