It is best to go to a Realtor as they belong to those MLS associations and have the most updated data. Realtors can tweak the data to give you only certain areas, size of home based on bed, bath, square foot of property, as well as lot size. They can even cater it to give you by date (6 month, 1 year, etc.).
I have homes in California, Hawaii, and Portugal. Let me know if you have any further questions or if I can help in any way.
I specialize in Under 640 Fico Score Loans and offer credit repair to raise fico scores to qualify. Here is a link, flyer, maximum income limits for CHF Access and a needs list to gather for processing a loan approval. I only need to ask a few dozen questions to know what options you have with what you have to invest towards the purchase and what your fico scores are?
