There are lots of ways to find homes for sale.
If you’re using a buyer’s agent, pass along the information along the info you picked up, and let him/her look into the property for you and set up a walk-through appointment with the seller. If you’re shopping on your own, review the flyer, check out any web links provided, and call the phone number on the sign. Have your wish list and a pencil and paper handy – often the telephone numbers on signs are voicemail messages that provide detailed information about the home.
– MLS – The Multiple Listing Service is a searchable database of homes on sale listed by realtors and update daily. WisconsinHomes.com offers a glimpse of that database here. But only professional realtors, who have paid the MLS subscription fee, have access to complete, up-to-the-minute information.
– FSBO – There are numerous For Sale By Owner web sites to search through. Just type “fsbo Madison” into Google.
– Surf – If you type “homes for sale Madison” into the search bar, you’ll have pages and pages of individual homes and lists of homes to look through.
