									West Michigan Real Estate Website Delivers Accurate Home Data From MLS Without Zillow Inaccuracies


Holland and Grand Haven area REALTOR® John Faber has launched a local website that he claims delivers
more accurate home listing data directly from the MLS, unlike Zillow, which published reports confirm has
15% to 30% inaccuracy rates for listings.

Online PR News – 25-July-2013 – HOLLAND, Mich. - Accuracy is everything in real estate search, according
to John Faber, who recently launched a home search website that he says boasts accurate listing data
directly from the source MLS, unlike big-budget national companies like Zillow, which published studies show
contain 15% to 30% inaccurate data on listings (

Faber's site, HollandHomesForSaleMI.com, provides quick and easy home listings sourced from the Denver
MLS database for all the major neighborhoods in the Grand Haven and Holland area, including lakefront
homes for sale in Michigan.


"The national real estate sites are a big problem for buyers," Faber says. "Home searchers inevitably turn to
them because of their big advertising budgets, but the information they provide is received in part from
secondary sources, and is not updated throughout the day from the MLS like our site."


The national real estate sites are a big problem for buyers. Home searchers inevitably turn to them
because of their big advertising budgets, but the information they provide is more often than not very
stale.

According to Faber, that means buyers waste a lot of time searching on those sites, because house listing
data changes frequently in the MLS.


"The listing data on our website comes directly from the MLS, so we know it's accurate. When a home gets
an offer, it's marked 'pending' and the site reflects that. On the national sites, however, it can stay in the
system for days, weeks, or even months, sending countless buyers on bunny trails for a property that isn't on
the market," he says.


Faber says Encompass Realtors provide a personal level of customer service far beyond the website.


"We have a team of seven Realtors who are experts at taking care of our clients' real estate needs. Whether
they're looking for Grand Haven homes, or other Lake Michigan real estate, buyers can't simply call Zillow
and ask them about a property, neighborhood, or financing," he says.


But he says that they can call Encompass Realtors for any of those questions.




                                                     1/2
"We're always happy to deliver not only accurate listing data, but a level of customer service that the big
national sites can only dream about."
