As everyone knows, in today’s world you can get any type of information you want at your fingertips via the Internet. A lot of house hunters and apartment shoppers are searching the Internet on their own to find their dream home. Some websites are geared towards the ability to view listings that are out there. Other websites allow you to search for apartment rentals. And now there are even websites that are for those, like myself, that just have a love for real estate.
I gathered some information on real estate websites based on the amount of traffic each website receives. That doesn’t mean these are the “best” websites for real estate. Again, popularity is dominator in this article. One website might be good for one thing and another website might be good for another. Either way, if you love real estate, you would want to check out these websites when you get a chance. Here are my top 10 real estate websites.
Top 10 Real Estate Websites
An online real estate database that allows you to search homes for sell and for rent. Zillow also gives information on mortgages and home design. It has a section for agents if they would like to create a profile to help promote their business.
A real estate database that allows you to search for homes for sale, for rent, and give you an idea of what your home would be valued if you wanted to sell it. Whatever your transaction, you re going to need a real estate agent and Trulia allows you to search for one.
This is a typical search engine where you can look for homes for sale, homes for rent, décor ideas, mortgage options, etc. This site also has different articles involving real estate (i.e. celebrity homes for sale).
Another database to search for homes on the market. I like this site because it gives you advice on different aspects of real estate.
A combination of a real estate search site with employed and salaried real estate agents. This is also a technology driven website.
Search homes for sale, rent, or homes in foreclosures. This site also gives you info on recent real estate sales.
Just as the name states, this is great search engine for apartments. This site allows property managers to advertise their properties.
This is mostly a blog site with different articles revolved around real estate. The cool thing about this site is that you can view blogs from different cities. I live in Chicago, but I love New York real estate so this site keeps me informed in the New York market.
Website for one of the top real estate companies. I work for Century21 so naturally I recommend visiting their site.
Their motto is “your place to find your place”. This is another blog site that is geared towards particular markets. This is a little different from Curbed, as this site has listing in these markets.
