I have a real estate agent but sometimes I just want to look up my own places for sale without an MLS. Any good resources? I am from Chicago if that helps any.
Looking for a retail on broom floor and residential rentals above and kind of just want to browse on my own online.
I am sure you can find plenty of retail deals in your area. A realtor is the best way to go on finding deals, and I know everyone hate to pay commission.
@Jack Cascio are you talking about looking online?
Good Morning @Jack Cascio drive around, look at classifieds, and check Craig's list. All these help. Arm chair search can include Realtor.com and Zillow,com. Help also. Tom
For publicly available deals, there are a bunch of good websites that take MLS listings all over the country and which you don't need your realtor's help to access. These include:
As for non-public deals, you can try foreclosure sites like RealtyTrac or your local foreclosure auctions, bandit signs, yellow letters, commercial brokers, lawyers, accountants, estate managers, etc.
Yes, I would like to first look online, and then drive by some places as I figure out exactly what I am looking for.
My opinion is that realtor.com is the best source for the mls listed properties. Zillow will show you some of the FSBOs.
A quick check and I see over 50 FSBO in the Arlington Heights area.
