WHY DOES THIS WEBSITE SEARCH SYSTEM SERVE YOU BETTER THAN OTHER REAL ESTATE WEBSITES?
To start with all Real Estate information is input to the local MLS (Multiple Listing Service) that’s standard. This information including status is swept from the MLS website daily to other local and national Real Estate websites. Status is just another term for availability, as in Active, Pending, Canceled or Sold. However in The Greater Phoenix Area the ARMLS (Arizona Regional Multiple Listing Service) has the additional status of UCB (Under Contract-Backup). This means the Seller is accepting additional offers to be place behind the already signed and accepted offer. In the initial listing contract it is asked of the Seller; if after accepting an offer is it preferable to allow Back-Up Offers, and of course the Seller almost always says “YES” and welcomes having Back-Up Offers, it’s excellent insurance. Herein lies the problem, UCB isn’t available or compatible as a status with most IDX (Search Systems) that are available to real estate websites throughout the country. A home that is under contract as UCB and is in many cases the one that you want more information on will show on other websites as “ACTIVE”. This is very disappointing and will add time and aggravation to the search.
THIS WEBSITE USES THE SAME IDX THAT ARIZONA REGIONAL MLS USES. ALL INFORMATION IS DIRECT, ACCURATE AND IS POSTED IN REAL TIME, INCLUDING STATUS AND PRICE ADJUSTMENTS… THIS IS AS CLOSE TO LOCAL REAL ESTATE AGENT INFORMATION AS YOU CAN RECEIVE IN ARIZONA.
