2) # of Bedrooms Minimum = Maximum =
3) Minimum # of Bathrooms = Just 1 is ok / 1.5 / 2 / 2.5
On lower priced homes, requiring more than one bath often greatly reduces the number of matching properties.
If just 1 is ok, 1.5 or 2 bath homes will also be found

11) Is there minimum square footage desired? Minimum SqFt =
If not sure of square feet desired just yet, skip this step. Most listings indicate the square
footage, but the system will also send those homes where the square
feet is not indicated. This way we don't miss any homes.
12) List any other features you require
Fireplace? Fenced Yard?
Main Floor Laundry? Listing too many required items will greatly
reduce the number of matching listings. List your 'would like' features
13) List any other features you would like to have

Dining Room. Walk-out Basement. These features will NOT be entered
into the search. This is just for my information to aid in finding the
perfect home for you.
14) Are you interested in viewing below market, As-Is Foreclosure homes - Yes or No?
These homes are typically in BAD
shape and require repairs and out of pocket money spent before you can
comfortably occupy the home. If you are not interested in
these type of properties, I can move them to the Discarded File before
sending you the link. You can still view properties stored in the Discarded File. If considering these types of properties, I STRONGLY recommend you have a conversation with your Loan Officer about financing as-is properties.
15) Where do you want to live?
- Listings in our MLS are categorized by which School District they
are located in. I need to know which districts OR areas you desire? If you're not particular about which school
district you want, you can just name areas, and I will input the correct
school district. To see which townships, cities, or areas are within each school district, click: "School District List". Prices shown for each school district are before the 2008 recession.
