House Hunt..the beginning

2014-04-27 RedondoBeach 002

Nesting?  My favorite sites and mobile apps for house hunting have been Redfin and Trulia.  Other popular sites are Zillow or Realtor.  I find Redfin generally is faster and more user friendly, providing headline stats like price, bed/bath count, days on redfin, $/sqft, yr built followed by detailed information.

Any agent can also set you up with a portal from theMLS, which is the multiple listing service brokers use to list houses.  In hot markets like Los Angeles, I keep in touch with brokers with the hopes they can alert me to off market properties, but word spreads fast.  If you are browsing, and don’t want to commit to an agent yet, Redfin is  enough.  The alerts setup is more visually  appealing than theMLS portals.  House hunting should be a little bit fun!  Any questions?
