Useful Websites

To find out how much it costs to buy what you like, go to my Listings page or if you
prefer an unbranded site, go to www.realtor.com. Avoid other sites to look for homes,
as most of them are not an exclusive direct feed from the MLS and have listings that
have been sold for a long time. The danger with this scenario are unrealistic
expectations based on homes that may have been sold a year ago, when the prices
were substantially less and even applies to very well known real estate mega sites that
are even listed below.

To find out about school ratings and crime, go to www.Trulia.com enter the address,
and scroll down and click either crime or schools.

www.greatschools.com or click on my Schools page.

To see the neighborhood without ever leaving your home, go to www.maps.google.com

mouse for 360 views.

To get an idea of how much a property could be worth, go to www.Zillow.com and ignore
the zestimate (usually is grossly wrong). Look at the recent closed sales of similar
houses or ask your realtor for comparable sales.
