Real Estate

The Basics

What are some top real estate websites I can use to analyze current and past listings on my own?

Thousands of websites enable users to search for homes across the United States and many parts of the world, especially as more real estate companies and organizations publish and tie together electronic records of current home listings online. Some real estate companies use mapping software such as Google Maps that enables users visually to see the homes, nearby parks, streets, and areas; to have an aerial view of the property; or even see the prices of all houses for sale on a map. This makes it much easier for sellers to price their houses properly, and for buyers to have the proper expectation as to the market price of all houses in a specific area or even geographic radius. The sites below consistently rank very high based upon unique monthly views by website usage experts: Experian’s Hitwise study, which uses sophisticated monthly sampling data to support its conclusions and rankings; homes.yahoo.com; Realtor.com; Zillow.com; HGTV FrontDoor; Trulia; Rent.com; MSN Real Estate; Homes.com; ZipRealty; and Mynewplace.com.
