RISMEDIA, Sept. 28, 2007-Finding a home in just about any community in the country that matches one’s lifestyle and top priorities and requirements has become a whole lot easier, thanks to consumer-friendly innovations driven by HouseHunt’s Internet technology.
Suppose you would like to relocate to a metro area within a close proximity to a college or university. Your wish list might also include year-round golf and tennis. So, where do you start looking?
Simply click on http://www.househunt.com/quicksearch and go to “Search By Community Type.” You will find 16 possible choices, ranging from “Beach Homes,” “Military Bases,” “Suburban Living,” “Resort Property,” “Retirement Property,” and “Ranch-Farm Property” to “Luxury Homes,” “College Towns,” “Investment-Apartments,” “City Living,” “Golf-Tennis,” “College Towns” and “Waterfront Property.”
Click on any combination of choices you want most, by state or nationally.
If you choose Arizona, for example, and selected a metro area with golf and tennis in a college town, you will find a great deal of housing and lifestyle information about the Tempe/Phoenix area, home of Arizona State University. Multiple golf and tennis facilities are plentiful in the Valley of the Sun and housing prices are very affordable compared to many metro areas.
You will also find the “Real Estate Market Trends” quarterly report that will provide such vital information on the Tempe area as: home prices average $200,000; average time on the market from listing to sale is 60-90 days; move-up buyers are most active; and that sellers are getting , on average, 95 to 100% of asking prices.
With access to 2.4 million active listings throughout the country and sales information on over 70 million homes, the HouseHunt.com website also offers timely and important information on communities and neighborhoods, schools, mortgage rates, top Realtors, housing tips, the best places to live and the safest cities in the U.S., the most affordable and most expensive cities.
A recent feature gives consumers the ability to search properties with videos and virtual tours of hundreds of thousands of listings via http://www.househunt.com/real-estate/video/.
According to the company, another valuable service for consumers is HouseHunt’s ability to swiftly and accurately provide an answer to today’s most often-asked question: “What’s my home worth today in my local marketplace?” Go to HouseHunt.com and enter the street address and ZIP code to find out. A list of recent home sales in that particular neighborhood will appear on the screen. They will be listed by property address, number of bedrooms and baths, price and sold dates. Once the inquiry is validated, the estimated value of your home will appear, along with a locater map. A self-appraisal tool is also provided to recalculate the value of your home, taking into consideration such as prime locations, upgrades, view lots and buyer activity.
