The Home Values channel on Homes.com is a great resource for consumers and Real Estate professionals alike!
We all know in this day and age, 9 in 10 home buyers begin their home search on the internet, but consumers are doing much more then browsing for their next home. They are searching for any information on the real estate process they can find, including local market statistics. Real estate professionals are no longer the keepers of real estate information, however real estate professionals are just that – the professionals. You have the opportunity to position yourself as a consultant and show off just how much expertise you have!
