If you want to make this easy on yourself..pick a GOOD REALTOR..then let him/her run the search for you and send it directly to you. Surfing a bunch of sites on the internet and asking questions about random properties should be a waste of time for you.
A good Realtor..who represents you..can take care of these things and make all of this a simple process. They can find you a quality lender with better than average rates and service, a quality inspector, and so forth.
I have sold many homes in the areas you are inquiring about over the last 25 years and would love to chat with you about what I can do to help you.
Feel free to contact me and we can get you on the right path.
Have a great day!
