Many buyers assume they need to hold off on checking out homes for sale until their move is just around the corner. However, doing so six months or even a year in advance can help you get an idea of how much homes in your preferred area are selling for and the availability of inventory.
If inventory is tight, you may end up in a bidding war (do not worry, a good real estate agent can steer you through bidding wars with sound counsel) and if inventory is plentiful, your agent could negotiate the price down to land a fantastic deal for you. So, keeping track of the ebbs and flows in the market can be enormously helpful.
But how do you watch the market if you are not already working with a real estate agent? Fortunately, there is a tool available online that is easy to use and gives you accurate listings of homes for sale.
The Details You Need
Gina Morgando Homes makes this tool available free-of-charge on the real estate agency’s website. You can search southwest Florida home listings by city, county or postal code. The first time you click on a listing, you will be prompted to create a free account. Once you have an account, you can search the full MLS and exclusive property listings.
Each listing includes the following information:
- An extensive collection of photographs of the interior and exterior of the home
- Property taxes (if applicable)
- Number of bedrooms
- Number of bathrooms
- Square footage
- Year built
