Buying a new home can be both exciting and stressful. As a Summit County Realtor, I’ve seen the full gamut of emotions. However, if you take advantage of a variety of available resources, you’re always better off in your house hunting. That also means you’re less overwhelmed in the process. This is why I highly recommend using our Summit County MLS search tool. Also known as multiple listing service, the MLS number is the key identifier all Realtors use to identify homes.
While I hope you’ll give us a call once you’re ready to start viewing homes, I also encourage clients to think of our MLS search tool as a second resource. Unless a home is specifically exempted from MLS, it will be listed in this online software. Therefore, MLS offers a ton of very useful information when it comes to finding the perfect Summit County home for you.
While MLS listings are designed for agents and other professionals associated with real estate, and can get a little technical sometimes, you can still have access to its tremendous amount of data, and the map functionality in our MLS search tool allows you to plot out the homes in your area, refine to read details on each one, and start compiling a list of homes that look promising to you. Some examples of the searchable information in the system are:
- Zip code
- Radius (a certain distance from any target address)
- Street or subdivision
- Price range (low to high)
- Square footage
