I have lived and worked in northern Peoria, Arizona for 15 years and feel very comfortable. If you would like more information about different areas in Peoria, I would be happy to help! I can be reached at (602) 882-5262 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Searching on Realtor.com, Zillow, Trulia and other consumer web sites will provide you with a lot of listings, but few of them will actually be available. When a Realtor enters a listing into MLS (multiple listing service), it takes 48-72 hours - or sometimes longer - before that listing shows up in any of these web sites. Inventory is so tight that most properties already have multiple offers or are already under contract before you even have a chance to view them online.
My suggestion to you would be to utilize an MLS search where you are actually looking at available properties, and you will be updated of any listings the moment they are entered into MLS by the agent - not 48-72 hours later. You can use my MLS access to search for homes, just click this link and you're on your way:
You will want to select only ACTIVE in listing status if you want fully available properties, otherwise AWC will show you short sales that are already under contract or regular sales that have an active contingency. Feel free to call me if you have any questions at 623-824-4275.
That is why you should work with a full time Professional REALTOR who can give you access to hot new listings before other buyers snag them up.
