Listings online

Since you're reading my blog, I assume you are very internet-savvy. The internet is becoming a bigger part of selling real estate every day. Already, more than 80% of buyers look for real estate listings online and it's great! You can see all the details about a house (like the number of bedrooms, square footage, etc. that you wouldn't be able to see from the curb). Most houses even have several interior pictures so you can determine if you like the interior style. This saves buyers a lot of wasted time going into houses that won't meet their needs.

However, there are some things that you just can't determine from the internet. You need to decide if you like the location and would feel comfortable living in that neighborhood. Drive around first and see what the neighborhood is like and what amenities surround the neighborhood. Pictures can be deceiving and can easily cut undesirable features out of the frame.
