Finding the perfect home doesn’t have to be hard, with these great tools you can find on the web:

 

  • Don’t be fooled by an unreputable home lender or seller.  LegalMatch has information regarding your rights as a homebuyer. Understanding what you’re entitled to will help you weed out the less-than-desirable companies who are only in the mortgage industry to make a quick buck.
  • Want to figure out your home buying budget, so that you don’t break the bank? Check out this mortgage calculator, provided by www.mortgagecalculator.com. There, you can get information on what you can expect to pay in fees, interest, and taxes.
  • Sites such as Zillow and Trulia let you view real estate listings in your area. Create an account to keep an eye on your favorite properties and get alerts when there are pricing changes.
  • Use GreatSchools to find out more about the districts near your home and to see rankings from parents. If you have kids or are planning to start a family in the future, you’ll want to know what you can expect from the schools.
