Realtor.com, the official site of the National Association of Realtors, offers some great tools to go with its millions of sale and rental listings. Its “area highlighter” feature lets you map the boundaries for a home search and combines the map with clear information about recently sold homes.
Zillow.com goes beyond traditional listings to show you foreclosures and homes for sale at auctions or by owner. The site also includes sales data “going back decades.”
Trulia.com provides a real feel for neighborhoods. It maps nearby shops and restaurants, maintains active community forums, and provides both local crime stats and ample information about local schools.
Redfin.com offers some of the “coolest” house-hunting tools, including our favorite mobile app and Redfin’s agents’ own comments about any home they’ve visited.
