Zillow is an app for your smartphone or tablet, that shows houses for sale or rent in just about every neighborhood in the United States. Zillow has for sale listings, as well as for sale by owner (FSBO) homes, foreclosures, new construction, and rentals. You can search by zip code, price range, number of bathrooms, size of the lot, and many other ways.
Because we used Zillow, and looked at houses online for over a year, we knew exactly what was available to us for purchase in the West Georgia area. We wanted a small house on 2-5 acres, in the country, not in a subdivision, that we could buy for less than $50,000. Our friends and co-workers laughed at us, because they thought we were crazy, thinking we could buy a house anywhere for less than $50,000, much less on 2 or more acres.
When we came to Georgia in the off season in the winter of 2011, we only looked at 2 houses before we bought the house we live in now. It is a comfy little house with two bedrooms, one bathroom, all on one level, on five acres, and the price we paid? $45,000.
I still look at Zillow often, because I can find out who bought the house down the street, and how much they paid for it. I can find out if what we are being taxed on our house is in line with what the neighbors are being charged. I can find out how much houses in my area are selling for so that if someone I know is looking, I can help them look without ever leaving the house.
And, it is fun to look at the price range of houses for sale in towns we drive through on our way to a vacation destination.
So, if you are looking for a house to rent or buy, what are you waiting for? Go on over to Zillow and get the app today! Your perfect house is waiting for you to find it.
