Why many home sales do not show up on Zillow, Realtor.com, social media sights.

Why don’t you see many transactions in sales or purchases? Because they never reach the Multiple Listing Service. Many Commercial, Residential and Social Media networks gather their data from these IDX sources.  So don’t always judge a Realtor’s performance by Internet data alone.  Do all Comparable Market Analysis provide full and accurate data. Worth calling my team just to find out, you may be pleasantly surprised.

Many of my networks include a large portion of Orange, Lake, Osceola, Polk, St John’s, Duval and Pasco Counties in Florida. I’ve put together transactions by paperless applications and mobile closers. References on request.  I might add, that my experience includes deals from all over the United States, South America, Canada, Europe, and the United Kingdom. 

Five of my last (7) transactions never made it to the MLS or internet. I had buyers in my pipeline watching for and asking about homes with specific criteria. Showed them properties that may go on the market, viewed them and made handsome offers almost immediatley. This does not always happen and perhaps I’ve been lucky. In any event I have many reviews to substantiate my sales activity. 

Once I sold my Ad Agency and Printing Companies, I invested in Real Estate long before ever thinking about becoming a Realtor. 

From 1992 through 2008 my family and I hosted foreign Exchange Students through local soccer organizations that hosted soccer camps for students in Swedan, Finland, and other european countries.  I was a member of Lions International and hosted young men through the Montgomery Youth program and one year actually hosted 7 boys for 10 days. Challenging and rewarding. So my network of foreign nationals is extensive.

Since September 1st, 2016 lets see what’s trending in TBGCC


September has been above average with per-qualified buyers and cash buyers.  Some lookers, but negotiations are becoming tougher with sellers compromising to meet most buyers’ offers.  Many offers are subject to buyers home selling!  For this reasoning, we had SIX (6) pending, and now have FOUR (4) contracts that show active in the MLS. OR (ACT) active with a contract and shows active on Realtor.com and Zillow, Trulia and Homes.com etc.

A 2/2 Villa  on Chatuge sold for $149,900, and another 3/2 on Caddyshack in pristine condition only sold for $135,000 and had great privacy in the back.  This indicates a diverse demand for sellers and buyers.  Very challenging for appraisers and most importantly the qualified Square Foot under roof!   Sellers believed to yield more for glassed or acrylic enclosures with aluminum roofs is a false and deceptive myth.  More often than not, when appraisal comes back, offers become challenged, and buyers more often than not will walk away unless the seller reduces the selling price to meet the appraised value.  It certainly jeopardizes the transaction and in many cases, KILLS the deal!

ELEVEN (11) homes closed/SOLD in September. SIX (6) conventional loans and FIVE (5) all CASH!  Preferred Fairway location and conservation views yielded the highest per sq. ft. averaging $10.00 to $13.00 per sq. ft more and significantly lower than the first SIX (6) Months of 2015.

FOUR (4) homes have WITHDRAWN their homes from the MLS , TWO (2) are temporarily off the market and one listing has expired.
