Hello Shere,

This is a great area to be looking. Spacious homes, views, great schools! Just a tip, most Realtors share access to home buyers via the Multiple Listing Service. This database updates every 15 minutes. If, however, an agent lists a home and has not yet entered it into the MLS, it will not appear. An agent is supposed to have the seller's written permission if they are withholding a listing from the listing from the MLS more than 24 hours. However, be advised that some agents do regularly withhold listings from the MLS (supposedly with owner permission) to do a 'soft launch' of the home to the market. This means they put it on Craigslist, hold weekend open houses and expose it as new to the market and finally put it in the MLS mid-week just prior to broker's open. I'm not saying this is a bad business practice, only that some homes are 'for sale' but not listed in all the listings searches.
