How to shop for a home online
While every site carries the list price of a property, when you're shopping for a home it helps to know whether the price has gone up or down since the last sale and how long it's been on the market.
"You should pay attention to the price and number of days on the market and the estimated payments, says Katie Curnutte, director of communications for Zillow.com in Seattle, "but it's bringing all of this information together that is the most valuable."
For example, on Homes.com you'll find the days on the market, list price and estimated monthly payment information prominently displayed on each listing.
