Live In Raleigh Online Tools To Search For Your Next Home!

Use The Live In Raleigh MLS Search Tool To Find Your Next Home

If you are anything like me then you love to search homes on the Internet. The stats say that 87% of you are searching for homes online so I am not alone!  I am REALTOR and do this for a living but I find myself spending a lot of nights cruising my own MLS search tool looking at homes I would like to live in someday.  Call me a home junkie which means I am in the right industry.  But I also know that there a lot of people just like me!

So lets say you want to search for homes on the Internet?  Well my website is here to help using the Live In Raleigh MLS search tool.  Here is a quick rundown on how you can use the Live In Raleigh MLS search tool:

  • Basic search allows you to search by address, zip code, price, square footage, # of bedrooms, county, lot size or even MLS #.
  • If you want to get more advanced then click on the advanced search link which allows you to narrow down your search criteria even further.  Here you can search by specific house preferences like bathrooms, basement, garage, subdivision or even schools from elementary to high school.  You can even search by using just a map of the Triangle.
  • Once you start searching be sure to save your searches and criteria so that you can come back and keep tabs on your past searches.
  • When you are searching homes and you find one that catches your eye you can click on more details that allows you to see all the detailed information on the home as well as see the all important pictures!  The picture gallery we have found to be very important because most people eliminate by pictures.  The easy to scroll picture gallery allows you a visual tour of the home you are viewing!  
  • Finally when you are in the detailed home page you have the option of saving that house, emailing it, printing the flyer, request more information or even a showing!
  • I have chosen some popular Triangle neighborhoods to feature on my Live in Raleigh website like Bedford Falls River, Heritage Wake Forest and Wakefield Plantation.  Once you are in a featured neighborhood page you will see that I have already done the search for you so that you can easily see what homes are currently available in featured neighborhoods like Bedford Falls River and Heritage Wake Forest.  
  • Another search tool you can utilize online at Live In Raleigh is Market Snapshot which allows you to sign up for real time analysis and reports on specific neighborhoods.  So maybe there is a neighborhood you want to keep an eye on to see what is selling then Market Snapshot would be the perfect tool.

I hope that you will find the Live In Raleigh online home search tools to be easy to use and helpful during your search for your next dream home.  If you need any help using the search tools or find a home that you want to see please let me know.  I would be happy to help you find your next home now or in the future!

Happy searching!
