Are you in the market for a new home, looking for something specific, or just browsing around? There are all sorts of places to find homes for sale – online listings, real estate agents, newspapers, and more. But sometimes it can be a little overwhelming, especially if you’re not familiar with the housing market in your area. So how do you go about finding the right property for you? One thing to keep in mind is that different types of homes will be listed in different places. Here’s faveplus’ guide on where to find different types of properties.
Single-family homes are typically listed with real estate agents and these popular listing websites.
Single-family homes are the most common type of home. You’ll find these homes (new or old) listed on websites like Zillow, Redfin, Trulia, The Real Estate Book, REMAX, Realtor.com, and MLS Listings.
Townhouses can be found on websites like Homes.com and Home Finder. While condos are typically listed on websites like Keller Williams and Century21.
FSBO.com, short for Homes for Sale by Owner is where you can typically find homes that are not being marketed by a real estate agent.
Check out FSBO.com for sale by private sellers or homeowners.
Mobile homes also are known as manufactured housing or mobile homes. These homes are typically listed on websites like Homes.com and Home Finder.
You can also try searching the classifieds of your local newspaper or online to find these types of properties more locally.
If you’re looking for foreclosure homes, check out the following sites…
Redfin, Realtor.com, Trulia, The Real Estate Book, and Foreclosure Listings (specific to foreclosed real estate). However, if you’re interested in buying any type of property at below market value – which happens quite often with foreclosed properties – it’s always best to consult an experienced agent who will be able to guide you through the process.
Short Sales are properties where the market value of the house exceeds what’s owed on it.
Typically this happens because someone took out a loan for more than they could afford and couldn’t make their payments after losing their job or other unexpected life changes. If you’re interested in seeing these types of houses, try checking sites like Trulia and Foreclosure Listings (this site is specifically for foreclosed real estate) as well as local newspapers since sometimes these types of homes are advertised in classifieds.
