FORT MYERS, FL- It's a different kind of real estate market anymore. Home shoppers need to do more of the work by themselves. Gone is the time of spending days with a real estate agent looking at homes and neighborhoods. Today's shopper needs to do much of the leg work themselves, looking up homes online and checking the area out to see if they like it.

Home buyers need a real estate agent's help to close the deal. Once the shopping is finished buyers need to move quick because bargains don't last long. Real estate contributor Denny Grimes sits down with WINK News Now This Morning on Six TV to explain what's happening now.
