Buying a Grand Rapids home? Search all homes for sale
If you’re only looking for homes on websites like Zillow, Trulia, or Realtor.com, you’re missing the boat. Those sites only comprise about 70% of the total available houses in the market.
There are other sources of homes to consider. For example, I receive lists of around 30 foreclosures every week. We also comb through all the online sources, tally up all the For Sale By Owner (FSBO) listings and call the owners for detailed information on their properties. We can also show you builders’ homes that aren’t yet ready for the market, as well as pocket listings.
