I want to share two new tools that I think are going to become widely used by both buyers and investors.
1. Google Street View : This amazing new tool allows to walk around a neighborhood or an entire city virtually. Many of my clients are using this to further explore areas before viewing homes.
2. Zilpy.com : This great new site allows you to see what homes or apartments are renting for in any given neighborhood. This is great if you’re planning on buying a rental or keeping your home and turning it into a rental. I also suggest you look at Craigslist to see what your competition as a rentor or landlord is going to be.
