How Twitter can help prospective homeowners find a lender, house
With more individuals putting a heightened emphasis on the use of mobile devices in their routine tasks, duties and everyday lives, the opportunities offered by these technologies have increased exponentially in recent months. Now, people not only use smartphones and tablets to communicate with friends and family members, but also to order takeout, find travel directions, rate restaurants and take pictures - even research lending firms and real estate agencies.
In recent years, the amount of information being exchanged on social media websites such as Twitter has seen a meteoric rise, with many individuals now relying on the application as their premier source for news. As such, the business has enjoyed substantial success during its relatively short time in operation, recently culminating with an Initial Public Offering on the New York Stock Exchange. If you're hoping to find a reputable source of residential financing and a trustworthy agent to help make your housing purchase easier, you may want to look to Twitter to facilitate your search, as it enables you to perform the following functions.
Interview potential partners
With housing markets all over the East Coast continuing to show signs of progress in the ongoing recovery, the regional workforce of real estate professionals is likely seeing more listings, higher prices, additional offers and more sales. Accordingly, you may want to take some time to research an agent before enlisting their help in your homebuying process. Twitter enables users to communicate with each other through short, 140-character tweets, which you can use to informally interview a professional to gauge how well they could assist you in navigating the path to homeownership.
Gather client testimonials
Being that Twitter is such a public platform, once you settle on a few prospective agents, you may be able to gather information regarding their professional decorum and effectiveness through client testimonials. Performing a keyword search could yield multiple tweets detailing the individuals' past successes and shortcomings, which could give you a better idea as to what working with them would be like.
Research available listings, rate quotes
Twitter is also a great resource for those currently hunting for homes, as it allows users to post photographs and images to their feeds. For prospective buyers, this can become a valuable news source. In a competitive market, any advantage helps. And, if you're the first to see a new listing hit the market, or notice that interest rates have changed, you could quickly become the owner of a new house - for an affordable price.
