Searching online is a great start for a home buyer. However, once you have decided on an area it more effective to select a Realtor that know the area and has up to date information on the status of homes for sale. Given your criteria that Realtor will be able to provide for your review only homes that are available for sale.

These types of sites are not up to date, find a Realtor in Orlando, thell them what you are looking for and ask them to send you listings. You will then be getting up to date information.

Best wishes on finding your new home.

Hello Lisa,

if you are serious about buying a home then you should contact a local realtor who can provide you with a list of homes listed for sale, based on your "wish list" (location, # of bedr, # of bathr., price range, etc.). There is no cost to you working with a buyers agent and you could stop wasting your time searching for homes on the internet by yourself.

Unless you are a cash buyer, the first thing you should do though is to contact a lender in regards a mortgage loan pre-approval.
With a pre-approval letter in hand you can start your shopping for homes - real estate agents and sellers will take you much more seriously when they see you have your mortgage funding in place.

If there is anything I can do to pre-approve you for the homes of your dreams, please feel free to contact me at your earliest convenience.

Best Regards,

Unfortunately sites like Trulia & Zillow have outdated information. Find yourself a local Realtor and ask them to set you up with an automated search, then you will know as soon as something is listed and can act quickly. Your Realtor can help you with all the details of a purchase and all for free! (Commission usually paid by seller). Good luck.

Hi. It can be frustrating as all sites are not updated regularly. See floridamoves.com/sandra.sanna for up to date inventory then contact me from site or call 7274394400.
Look forward to hearing from you.

Hi Lisa,
Most website aggregates are not current when it comes to the status of the properties on the market.
Your best route is to hire a local realtor in your area.

They have the access to real-time listings.

Good Luck
