Right now with the economy tanking, and housing prices in the dumps, it’s a great time for buyers to pick up some great deals. But where do you find them? If you want an overall view of what’s on the market, you can’t have an agent show you every house, and booklets become quickly out of date because they’re not able to instantly update themselves. No the best place to find real estate listings is on the web. Here are the best websites to find real estate listings in Northwest Indiana.
This is a great website for getting up to date real estate listings. The website gives you the option of searching either by zip code, city and state, or by the map. Then you plug in a couple pieces of information, such as number of beds and baths, and your price range. Then the site gives you a list of homes in which you can view all kinds of information such as pictures, prices, addresses, sizes in square feet, descriptions, and maps.
This is another good website for real estate listings in Northwest Indiana. Again, just plug in your zip and your price range and list of corresponding homes will pop up. Or, you can forgo the information and just browse the list of homes in order of the date that they were listed. There is also information and pictures on each home, although not as many as on realtor.com. However, unlike realtor.com, you can get listings of homes that are for sale by owner.

This website is head and shoulders above the rest. It is the only site out there that is specifically tailored for the Northwest Indiana region. As with most real estate listing sites, you enter your wants and needs in a house, and then you get a list of homes based on your criteria. The great thing about this site is that you can get very detailed with your criteria. You can search through subjects such as lot size, structure size, year built, address, and property status. You can even narrow it down to what subdivision to look for homes in. One last feature of this site that I love is the ability to look for other kinds of real estate other than homes, such as farms, commercial property, vacant land, and multi unit properties. Happy hunting!
