You are obviously not working with a Realtor. I have heard the same story from other frustrated buyers.
The truth is that most buyers use the services of a Realtor. Most active Realtors are in the market daily and when a great deal comes on the market, it may never hit the local paper, web, or even MLS (unless it reads "Sold Before Processing".

I suggest that you find a local expert Realtor and sit down and interview them. You want someone that will look for a home for you. To give you an idea, about 20% of homes on the market are priced right and prepared for sale. Those are the "good deals". 80% of homes are over-priced and just sit there.

Good luck.

If you need a top agent in Woodland Hills, I have a great one I can refer you to.

I can set you up on an alert system that will notify you daily of new listings, also you will have access to change your search criteria as needed. It's a great tool, it can even show you how many days a property has been on the market. Send me an email and I will set you up.

Hi Ne,

This is really easy to do on Trulia. If you search for listings in any area, you can sign up to receive email alerts when new listings are added to our database that match your search criteria. If you access the link below you'll see all homes for sale in the three areas you mentioned. You can refine your search criteria using the filters on the left side of the page and you'll find the option to sign up for email alerts right at the top of the page.

I hope you find this helpful!

Best Wishes,
