Today, people are moving towards doing more of their own home searching via various websites. For the most part these sites either require registration or are very limited in data. The biggest dilemma I have run into while searching for a home in the past is that the “Free” MLS searches are NOT UPDATED and do not have all the listings. It is the most frustrating thing in the world to finally find a home you like and then realize it sold the day before you found it! I have tried Zillow, Trulia, and endless amounts of real estate websites and have yet to find a great MLS search tool. Even if you happen to find one that is updated and has all of the listings, the odds are that the usability of the program is not very friendly and not powerful. You may be wondering why in the world I am writing a blog simply complaining about free MLS search tools? The reason for writing this is because I have found the SOLUTION!!!
After endless internet research I came across one very powerful tool. It isn’t cheap for me to provide to visitors, but it is completely free and there is no registration or getting spammed involved. You can sign up for automatic updates or simply use the advanced mapping search tool without any disturbances.
CHECK IT OUT! I just implemented this advanced feature yesterday!!!
