Economy Confusion New Economy Confusion? There's been a lot of hype in the media in recent months about the "new" vs. the "old" economy. If you plan to purchase a home this year, you'll experience both new and old. First, take a peek at the new - via the internet. You'll find 1,000,000 + homes with photos, "virtual" tours, financing options, and mortgage calculators on the World Wide Web. You can take a "tour" right from your family room. The internet is like an open door to all the homes in the world. But, wait! What's missing from those websites? Of course - there's no secure site to place your credit card order for the home of your choice. Such foolishness - you wouldn't order a home sight-unseen. Although browsing the internet can be interesting, it's really just advance preparation. It gets you in the mood and provides some initial education. Welcome back to the "old" real estate economy - the one where you meet real people who can help. Begin your home search by choosing an agent with the human touch - the ability to personalize your search. Once chosen, the agent can translate your home search dreams and objectives into reality. Enjoy the internet, but understand that it takes real people to help make your home purchase happen. Choose an agent who understands the "new" economy and get the best of both worlds.
