Zillow Can’t Smell The Cat Pee: And Other Reasons You Need a Trusted Local Realtor

Zillow Cant Smell Cat Pe

Our friends at Path and Post Real Estate in Atlanta, GA wrote this blog, and we wanted to share it with you. Zillow is a giant in the real estate industry for good reason, almost everyone starts their search for real estate on Zillow.

Zillow Can’t Smell The Cat Pee:
And Other Reasons You Need a Trusted Local Realtor

OK. Cat people, are you still with us?

In all seriousness, we know that sometimes, there just aren’t enough scented candles, potpourri, or essential oils to mask odors. In fact, they make things worse. Beautiful, well-lit listing photos can excite a potential buyer to schedule a tour, but even the most promising photos are unable to really give the full details of a property.

This got us thinking, there is only so much that a tech company can do when it comes to buying and selling real estate. At some point, there are things Zillow can’t do to help. So the Path and Post team, along with The Erhardt Group came up with some reasons why it’s helpful for consumers to have a trusted local real estate expert.

Here are some of the ways that honesty, trust, and yes, even a little humor, can make buyers and sellers feel like they have someone in their corner.

Zillow just can’t…

  • Smell mold, pet, or even people odors
  • Encourage you to never give up on your dream
  • Guide you on how to win a specific multiple-offer situation
  • Help keep your emotions, expectations, and ego in check
  • Point out hidden red flags
  • See termite damage
  • Identify signs of wildlife in the attic
  • Share the experience of what it’s like living in our local communities, the most-loved Festivals, local rodeos, pumpkin patches, food trucks, fishing holes, karaoke nights, or the best places to see live music
  • Recommend a good painter, plumber, or other local vendor
  • Open that closed door and tell you what’s behind it
  • Confirm if the bedroom has a view of a beautiful lake or pond or nearby dump site
  • Properly price for the condition of the property.
  • Become your friend

Our team understands that everyone uses Zillow and that it’s the most-visited real estate website in the world. We agree that it’s a great place to start when you’re ready to move forward to buy or sell real estate.

Moving is a big life transition and you deserve a guide that makes you feel comfortable and confident each step of the way.
