Part of finding that perfect home is simply searching as thoroughly and diligently as possible. There are a lot of helpful Web sites out there, each with differing interfaces. Finding the one that best suits your needs will bring you one step closer to picking out a home. Another Web-based real estate search site, Trulia, highlights homes in your area that have been recently reduced in price. Its homepage also shows nearby open houses, recent home listings and helpful statistics like median sales prices for the area.
Much like Zillow, a community-based section offers advice for and from home buyers, and a blogs section highlights articles written by experts in the field who have helpful tips on all things real estate. Trulia also offers an iPhone app with GPS-based map search and images and data on houses for sale.
