2017 NAR HOME Survey GraphAccording to the 2017 NAR HOME Survey from the first quarter of 2017, 72 percent of people believe that now is a good time to buy a home.

Home buyers looking for the right house in the Spring of 2017 find many resources available on the internet.  It is easy to find every MLS listed house on multiple websites, and there are thousands of buyers looking at those same listings, hoping they are accurate, up to date, and available. Buyers and their REALTORS should definitely search the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) to see if the right home is available. If it is, then make an offer and hopefully end up with a great house!

However, it is important to not overlook a large source of available homes that, up to now, have not been as easy to find as a quick MLS search.  HomeQT provides Real Estate Pocket Listings to buyers and their REALTORS. Using www.HomeQT.com is a great way to find that Hip-Pocket Listing or Off-market home that is not listed in the MLS, but is available to home buyers that know how to find them. At HomeQT your perfect home is waiting. It’s on the qt and just not listed… These are the secret-listings, quiet listings, the ones you know are out there, if you or your REALTOR just knew how to find them.

At HomeQT you search for a pocket listing by describing the home you really want. Include the location, school district, view, neighborhood, number of bedrooms, bathrooms, color, yard size, square footage, amenities, age, number of stories, etc. The more you describe what you want in a home, the better chance there is of an agent having that perfect private pocket listing for you!

Then sit back and relax as HomeQT sends the private listings that agents believe meet your requirements straight to your inbox, and you will also get a separate list of other pocket listings so you may see if any other listings might be of interest to you.  If something looks good, then you simply contact the agent for more information.
