illow.com is “wildly popular” because it reliably turns up the most homes in a search. Individual listings can be “slim on details.” But the site features special tools to study neighborhoods, and users looking for a mortgage can “anonymously enter personal information to shop for rates and terms.”
Realtor.com not only turns up a decent number of properties but also offers plenty of specifics. The Find a Neighborhood tool can pull up such details as addresses, amenities, and “commentary from real estate agents,” as well as “demographic, economic, and school data.”
Trulia.com is “arguably the most feature-rich site.” The streamlined selection of properties “displays photos of the homes via Google Street Maps.” But the site also illuminates trends and creates graphs to show “how a home’s price compares with similar for-sale and recently sold properties.”
