If you have been looking for a home online, you have most likely already figured out that many of the websites are not as up to date as they should be to be relevant.  There are so many properties that are already under contract or even sold that are still showing active.  The other issue is that not all of the homes for sale make it on all of the sites.  So what is a buyer to do?

If you're thinking of buying, here are a few tips to help you buy your new home.

  1. Get off of website that is dependent on agents or owners to update the price and status.  Use a website that allows you to see all homes as well as see the status so you know if a home is available or not.  Your Palm Beach County real estate team knows that accurate information is critical

We just experienced a miracle and our buyer did too.  Was it a miracle?  Or was it a determination that comes with hiring Treu Group Real Estate?  I believe it was both.  One of the most amazing things that we offer our clients is that we don't take a no if a yes isn't possible.

The good news couldn't have come to a nicer buyer.  I know he will have many great memories in his new home.

Treu Group Real Estate was committed to helping our buyer get the home of his dreams.  There were bumps however due to amazing connections, accurate records and the expectation that we had to get him his house.  Without our experience, the buyer would be homeless.  It is so great to have a happy client.

The details:  The home purchased was in Palm Beach Gardens in

Have you been looking at real estate websites?  Did you know that real estate websites can harm you when you are selling?  Huh?  Yes it is true.  How you are asking?  Here are a few reasons:
