Step 4: Becoming a VIP Buyer!

We are a team of experienced, licensed real estate agents serving the Jacksonville metro area. With a proven track record of getting results quickly and a direct line of communication at all times. Call us today at (904) 544-5252.

There are plenty of those online websites that will show you homes that are “available for sale.” Did you know some of that information may not be correct? Let me give you an example: Zillow has an agreement with the Northeast Florida Flex MLS in which Zillow will continue to show homes as being “Available for Sale,” when in fact someone else already has a contract on them.

The only way you could buy those homes is if that buyer that has a contract, terminated the contract. Those homes are very difficult to get and buyers that “wait & hope” for some other deal to fall apart will be successful a very low percentage of the time.

We provide our VIP the BEST access to all the homes that match their criteria from all the real estate companies, even homes they CANNOT find online.

If you happen to run across an address that interests you, please let our team member know. They can research it and make sure to show it to you, if it’s available.

Also, we help home buyers purchase brand new homes as well. Whether you are looking at a new home or a home listed by some other agent, you definitely do NOT want to be DENIED representation. Going directly to the listing agent is a problem because the listing agent has already signed an agreement with the seller to get the SELLER the most money. They may be able to fill out the paperwork, but they NOT working in your best interest.

So, be sure to reach out to us any time you come across a home that you want to see. Have fun shopping!

Should You Use Zillow to Find Homes For Sale?

Don’t Trust Everything You See Online, Become a VIP Buyer

Because nearly all information is available online these days, most people start with Zillow to find homes for sale. And it’s no surprise that many people turn to online real estate websites – they’re convenient! With a few clicks, you can browse hundreds of listings and find homes to buy that match your criteria. 

However, in a competitive market, you’ll soon discover the information on these websites often isn’t accurate. Using free online tools is a great way to lose out on every offer you make.

Why Isn’t Using Online Home Searches the Best Option?

Let me give you an example. Zillow, one of the most popular real estate websites, has an agreement with the local Northeast Florida FlexMLS. This means Zillow continues to show homes as being “Available for Sale,” even if they’re under contract already. 

If you want a chance at those homes, you have to cross your fingers the contract falls through.  If another buyer already has a contract on a home, it’s a slim chance you’ll get a real chance. Buyers who wait and hope for some other deal to fall apart are almost always disappointed.

This is just one of many problems with relying on online real estate websites to find your dream home. That’s where having a real estate team comes in. My realtors have access to all of the homes that match your criteria from all the real estate companies. This includes homes that you cannot find online.

Can Phil Aitken Get Exclusive Listings?

When you have VIP access with Your Home Sold Guaranteed Realty - Phil Aitken Home Team, you’ll see the best listings. Every home on the market in Jacksonville that matches your criteria will come straight to your inbox. If you happen to come across an address that interests you, let us know. We can research it and make sure to show it to you if it’s available. 

We can help homebuyers purchase brand new construction homes as well. For a new construction home or a home listed by another agent, you need your own realtor. If you don’t have one, your interests will come last.

If you go directly to the listing agent, they’ll have an agreement with the seller. The seller’s agent is working to get them the most money. Sure, they can fill out the paperwork, but they are not trying to help you.

When Should You Become a VIP Buyer?

Becoming a BIP Buyer with my team is crucial. We have your best interests in mind and will work tirelessly to ensure you get the best deal possible. My team can research a property and negotiate with the seller’s agent. In addition, we’ll make sure everything gets done in a timely and efficient manner.

Making offer after offer on a home that’s already sold can be frustrating and disheartening. And, even if you do get a house under contract, you don’t want to spend too much money. When you’re a VIP buyer, you don’t have to rely on Zillow to find homes. And you don’t have to trust a realtor working for someone else.
