Where Do You Shop for a New Home?

When it's time to start looking for a new home, where do you look first? The Internet is a typical first response to this question; but where on the internet?

Realtors list the properties they have for sale on personal and company websites. If you have already made a decision about which realtor you'd like to work with, their website is a good starting point. But you are definitely not limited to the listings your realtor has available or what their broker has available. Your realtor can help you through the process of buying any property that is available for sale. And those properties are available through a number of different sources.

Realtor.ca is a popular location for listing properties. It has great search options and will tell you which realtor has listed each property. In fact, most realtors offer you the option of searching this MLS service right from their website - it's always a good idea to compare and contrast when you're looking for a good deal.

Kijiji is a popular place to post anything you have for sale, and real estate is no exception. However, with over 750 listings for "houses for sale" it may be a little difficult to find what you're looking for. Try using specific search terms, including a street name, price, or other descriptive words that can help narrow the options to the kind of home you're really shopping for.

Where else can you look for homes online? Here are just a few of the other websites where you can search for property:
