It's an interesting time to be shopping for a new home. First-time home buyers will have the benefit of not having to sell a home in a down market in order to buy their new home. Current homeowners will have a slightly more difficult time, as they will be receiving less value from their home than they originally expected, but will also be able to get into a new home for less than expected. Find a good real estate agent, and they will go a long way toward steering you through the potential minefield of the modern housing market. Your real estate agent may also be able to put you in touch with a good mortgage broker. You'll be enjoying your new house before you know it!

Finding Homes Online

Find your future digs in cyberspace! Online tools can help you drive around your next neighborhood from your desktop. You can search by location, home type, square footage, number of bedrooms and bathrooms, and price range.

Some services offer access to new listings for a monthly or yearly membership fee. Many of the online listing services offer complimentary trial periods so you can check them out before you pay. Using such services, you can assess the homes in the real estate market in your prospective new neighborhood with minimal effort.

Build your consumer confidence by comparing prices online. Some listings won’t include any photos, so you’ll want to see the properties that interest you in person. You can also find available homes on Multiple Listing Service (MLS) sites.
