Ready to set a move date with your New Orleans moving company? Then you’re probably seriously thinking about calling New Orleans your new home. Whether you’ve decided to just rent for now or you’re thinking about investing in a new home, finding a real estate agent to help you secure housing will be very important. Find someone who can match your wants/needs with available housing options that way you can make more progress during a quick trip before your move. Here are some other online tools that can help you research and find the right area for you and your family.
Trulia.com: Trulia.com offers you a few ways to search for housing. First, you must select if you’re interested in renting or buying, then you will get re-directed to a search page that gives you a number of options for narrowing down your search. Whether you’re only interested in looking at a certain area, price range, property type or amenity – you can create a search, save it and have Trulia send you updates if a new property hits the market.
Zillow.com: Very similar to Trulia.com, Zillow is another housing search engine that features a variety of whys to find housing options. One thing that’s different about Zillow is that is allows homeowners to post listings – versus only just allowing MLS listings from real estate agents. The upside for you is that you could get a better deal, if you find a house that is for sale by owner (FSBO) because the commission wouldn’t have to be paid out by the seller.
Realtor.com: Though not as user-friendly as Trulia and Zillow, Realtor.com is the main engine that drives MLS search. Usually it has the most up-to-date information besides a direct search into the MLS. Realtor.com is one of the main ways that realtors market their home listings, so you can expect to get a lot of robust listing information from this site.
