The internet is full of Scams! Use a local Realtor you can trust! 

When we made the move to Charleston, South Carolina, I started shopping for homes on Craigslist and the internet...  I was surprised at all the great deals out there... many too good to be true! And they were... one by one they all proved to be scams.  I was bombarded with out of town owners wanting me to wire a deposit, texts in broken English, even sending me to look at homes that were vacant while the owner was on vacation! After hooking up with a Realtor we were able to find our perfect spot for a fair price.  Has this ever happen to you?

Here's the BEST way to shop for homes in Charleston and the surrounding counties.

1. First come to my web site michael.TopCharlestonAgents.com  The most powerful search site on the internet! Updated with homes for sale every minute

2. Create an account and browse every home on the market by more than 100 different search criterias. 

3. If you see a home you want to see contact me and I will reach out to the owner and see whn we can view the property. You may also drive by the homes you like and get a feel for the neighborhood.  

Remember it doesn't cost you anything to use my services when you are buying a home! Check out my blog on Why use a Buyers Agent?

If you have a home to sell come see your home value. At : michael.topcharlestonagents.com/sell

Just plug in your address and find out what the internet says your home is worth! If you don't like what the internet valuation is call me! I may be able to fix it! It is hard to sell your home for what it's worth if the internet is wrong!  

Remember my advice is always free! Call, Text or email anytime!
