Why First Carolina, REALTORS® - Eastern North Carolina Search is Better Than Zillow®

There is no argument that Zillow®, Trulia®, and Realtor.com® get the most traffic of any real estate search sites in the U.S. however, bigger is not always better, especially when it comes to real estate websites.

As David Lereah, the former Chief Economist for the National Association of REALTORS®, would often say (and even wrote a book by the same title), "All Real Estate is Local" and we feel this is a reason your real estate search website should be local too!

Why use FirstCarolina.com Search instead of Zillow® or the other national sites? 

  • We have 100% of the listings from the REALTORS® MLS that sellers have authorized to be advertised on the internet and our data comes directly from the local REALTOR® MLS which is not true for many of the national sites. 
  • We only show listings that are still available and, unlike others, do NOT show listings with a status that indicates they are Sold and Closed.
  • Our site is updated every 15 minutes straight from the MLS!  - No national sites we are aware of update their Eastern NC listings as often as we do!  This means you can find new listings here sooner and have less risk of missing out on a great listing!
  • On our website, the listings shown, as well as the information about the listings, has all been entered by the listing agent and is subject to MLS rules governing accuracy, timely updates, etc. Conversely, many of the national sites allow most anyone to enter listings or listing information which can lead to inaccurate or misleading information being presented on their sites.
  • FirstCarolina.com Search is owned and operated by First Carolina, REALTORS® with trained professional real estate agents ready to help you and just a click away. Our agents have all experienced specialized training before being allowed to work with customers from our website so we can insure that the level of service you receive is second to none. On the national sites, normally any agent that will pay the fee required will be shown on the site.

We spend literally hundreds and hundreds of hours creating new and original content for our sites and our users to give you as much information as possible on OUR local market, you simply won't find better or more relevant info anywhere else.
