How to Find Your Next Home Online

Browsing real estate online can be addictive, whether you're looking at properties in your budget or in your wildest dreams. It can also be completely bewildering. How to know what sites to trust? As in, which have the most comprehensive listings? Which really have your best interests in mind (read: not their own)? And which are going to spam you for the rest of your ever-loving life if you fill out a form one night after you've had a couple glasses of wine?

I most often recommend Zillow. With a database of more than 110 million U.S. homes—including homes for sale, homes for rent, and homes not currently on the market—there’s more than enough real estate to feed your house-browsing addiction and help you find a place to call home.
I run both of my real estate blogs through Zillow’s WordPress-powered “For Pros” platform, and I can’t tell you how many times a day I draw information from Zillow listings. The same search I use to find the perfect home for my clients is available to you, too. See the “Search All Homes” tab above, and you’ll find the simplest way to narrow down a search to the properties that best fit your needs, wants, and wishes.
With the Zillow search function on my blog, you can sort properties not only by price and location but by details like “year built” and must-have features like “whirlpool” or “9 parking spaces.” Because it's a total deal breaker when a house doesn't come with a whirlpool, no?
In all seriousness, I encourage you to take a turn around the Zillow search on my site and see how easy it is to use. Any questions, you know who to call.
