The Top Story discusses how buyers can find a home in a seller’s market.

Though 89% of buyers start their search online, it is important to note that in some markets, (in the Baltimore real estate market, we have a few areas in a few price ranges where this is happening,) where what is online today may not be there tomorrow — or the owners may already have contracts in hand, even as it hits the internet!

Some websites do not carry all of the listing data for an area, or take longer for the data to appear than the MLS. This is where having a real estate agent working for your needs is important!
