As with everything available for sale online, the Real Estate sector also has a lot of websites and mobile applications that you can use to find homes for sale. If you search typing “House for Sale nearby,” you will see many options in front of you to choose from, where several properties will be listed. Some of the top real estate listing sites and apps are mentioned below :
This is the best website for people searching for homes for sale in Chattanooga TN. The Charlotte Mabry Team is the best group of Realtors in the Chattanooga area. Definitely a go-to website if you are from that area.
This is the official website for the National Association of Realtors and is also maybe the oldest in the game, so it probably has the most number of listings. As it is made from the aspect of real estate agents, more focus is on making you contact the agent and less on the description of the property. There are better options available, but it is an excellent place to start your search.
Zillow is currently the most widely used online platform for finding a house for sale. It has taken all the features of realtor.com and improved on them by adding more user-friendly features such as Zestimates (Estimated market value of a house) – It has an easy to use mobile application too. But the downside is that sometimes it’s not updated and may show you property as available when in fact, that house may already be under a contract. So you need to check with other websites or a real estate agent to verify the availability.
It is user friendly for people who have little or no experience in using real estate websites. It lets you search all listed properties for sale in an area by displaying all of them on a map. At the same time, you are also looking at the prices, their size, the number of bedrooms, and the main picture, all on the same page as the map.
The most recent additions to the booming real estate online market, Redfin has a very interactive mobile application for those searching to buy a house. In addition to the basic information that is listed on all other websites, it tells you straight away the number of days a specific house has been on the market for sale, which is a good thing to know.
There are so many websites that it is very easy for you to get confused about which one to trust. Also, there is that “Fine Print” that secretly tries to sneak past valuable data like Deposits, Transfer Fees, Allowed Contingencies, and a bunch of other technical information that is crucial for you to make a final choice. A Real Estate Agent or a company can come in handy in such a situation where they can provide you with accurate information, authentic status, and all the fine print details upfront. You can easily shortlist the properties that you like online using any of the above or other platforms available in the market and then call your agent to reach the best possible decision.
