There appears to be one listing of this property in Georgia MLS only and that transaction reportedly closed in 2001. It could not be found as a listing in FMLS, and a quick Google search revealed no online promotional activity other than the foreclosure announcement. The tax record dated May, 2010 indicates that this property is owned by Fannie Mae.
You indicate that you thought a REALTORÂ® was involved in the sale. Sadly, there are entities who claim the ability to sell a property without the use of the MLS systems. Others will claim to have entered the property into MLS when they have only entered it into one of the two systems or not at all as it seems occurred in this case.
Over 80% of home buyers search the internet for a home at some point in the purchase process, so it is important that properties for sale have a robust presence there. The local MLS services will syndicate a property listing to multiple, highly relevant real estate sites with up to 300 characters of descriptive text and up to 20 or so photos, so they offer some of the best coverage online. In addition, my listings have up to 2000 characters of optimized text, unlimited photos, virtual tours, a dedicated website, a full mobile platform, enhanced REALTOR.com information and photos and more, so my listings appear on the front page of search engines when a highly relevant keywords are used to search for homes.
Please consider your options wisely if you are considering selling your home. I'd welcome the opportunity to have a short, pressure-free, no-obligation discussion with you. Please call soon.
