You can just search on your own or sign up with our free home search service
MLS Propertyfinder. This service will automatically keep you in touch with the day to day changes in the market through email or you can sign in and search the Multiple Listing data base of thousands of properties yourself.
You and your family should put together two lists an absolute needs list and a wish/want list.
