There shouldn't be a fee to view listings, if you see there is then the website is a scam. Go to bcraver.cbrwg.com to view every home available for sale in the Fort Wayne area. You can contact me through that site or at bcraver@cbrwg.com with any and all questions you may have.

Whenever free information is available there will be somebody trying to trick consumers to pay for it anyway. If you are not careful you may get tricked into paying for many free services, or buying products you don't need, while shopping for and buying a home. You may want to find a good experienced Realtor to help you with your search. The Realtor is able provide you with free (we pay for it, you don't) market data and help you avoid costly mistakes. I have been helping home buyers and sellers in the Fort Wayne area for more than 25 years and work hard to make sure the process runs smoothly (and inexpensively) for my customers.

Try realtor.com or get set up with a good realtor. I am not a realtor but anyone you feel comfortable with can help you out. Most of the people who post on here are solid referral sources.

Why should it be FREE! You SHOULD have to pay.
Then, when invalid data is encountered, you have the RIGHT to complain.
Then, when incorrect, misleading, blatantly false data is found, you have the RIGHT to complain.
Because it is free you have neither the legitimate right to complain and the organisation providing the data has no obligation to ensure the integrity of the data. In essence you get EXACTLY what you pay for. (exception: RealtyTrac)
There is no less than 15,000 available options that allow you access to bank owned real estate. All affiliated with folks who PAY (on your behalf) to make accurate, relevant, timely, reliable data available and are accountable for the data. They have volunteered their resources. So, take them up on it.

Never pay a fee! Using Trulia, Realtor.com, etc. will give you an opportunity to look around areas and get a feel for neighborhoods and prices. When serious, contact an agent since they will have the most accurate and up to date home selections...all free.

You are probably looking at a foreclosure website. Don't get suckered into paying for those, as most have inaccurate or old data. Go to http://www.century21bradley.com for information on all homes listed for sale by all real estate companies in NE Indiana. We also have a mobile app you can download to your smart phone to view all houses for sale by all real estate companies. Lastly, you can dial 260-493-3519 and get recorded information on all housea for sale by all real estate companies in the area. Hope that helps!
