f you’re ready to find a home, it can be a daunting task to figure out where to start. In this article, we’ll go over three different ways of searching for a home. Once you know these three different methods, you’ll be able to choose which method works best for you so that you can begin your search right away.

Method #1 – Check The Newspapers
One way to go about finding your future home is the old fashioned way. Pick up every newspaper in and look in the classified sections.
Make sure you check cheaper papers as well as the more popular ones. The cheaper ones are less costly to advertise in and sellers will often opt to advertise in those rather than more expensive, popular newspapers.
Check your local library for newspaper archives to see if homes that were listed weeks or even a month or two ago are still on the market.
Method #2 – The Internet
The internet is now one of the best places to find a home if you’re working on your own.
Realtor.com has almost every listing in the MLS. Just type in and it will pull up all the listings that match your criteria.
Another place to look is Craigslist.com, where real estate agents and sellers can put ads up for sale. If it’s on Craigslist, you know they’re actively marketing the house.
Method #3 – Find a Great Real Estate Agent
Real estate agents have spent hundreds of hours learning and training in how to find homes for buyers. They have access to the MLS system as well as a wide network of real estate agents where they may find you deals you wouldn’t otherwise find.
As a buyer, working with a real estate agent really doesn’t cost you anything, because the seller pays all the fees. You gain a lot of experience and expertise for no cost to you at all.
