Hi Family of 5,
The best web site to search for homes is through a free service offered by the MLS; it's called Listingbook. This site is the most up-to-date on the status of listings and you can view almost everything that real estate agents see on the MLS.

Here is the link to Listingbook:


Good luck!

You should understand the different roles real estate agents play, and whom they represent. Connecticut enacted Buyer Agency law in 1997 to support and educate purchasers of real property. This law change attracted me to the profession. There is no cost to you for me to be your Buyer Agent as my fee is paid by the seller.

I expect that you are not working with any other buyer agents at the same time, and that you acknowledge our agreement to work together. You will be pre-approved for a mortgage to fully understand the options available to you. Pre-approval is free, and easy to for a qualified person to complete. Call Bill Considine at my office, 203-239-2553 extension 104 if you want an approval over the phone.

For more information about me, and what I can offer you, log into my personal website, http://www.ahomeforme.com or http://www.david-carr.net, or call me at my office, 203-654-2905. I look forward to helping you achieve your dream of home ownership or investment.

Hello Family of 5,
I suggest that you contact a few real estate agents in the New Haven area to familiarize yourself with the various neighborhoods and discover what they have to offer. Select the agent who you believe is the most knowledgeable on the market and who you feel comfortable with.

Usually, there is no cost to the buyer to work with a buyer's agent as the seller in most instances pays the commission fee. Perhaps, there are a few registered agents here on the Trulia site that you could search for on the "find a Pro" tab.

Good luck to you!

Hi Laura,
Thank you for your response. I am trying to do research from Austin first and am unsure of where to start. I am pretty sure that I do not want to live in New Haven but am pretty open. I don't know of any agents. I think I need more information first so that I can narrow our search before we fly to CT again for a weekend to look at home. Any websites that you recommend outside of realtor.com?
Thank you!
