The Good

  • Plethora of features
  • Filtering options
  • Frequently updated listings

Plethora of Features Realtor.com makes finding property details incredibly easy. On a listing's page, you can find everything from the property's history, surrounding schools and neighborhoods, to nearby restaurants, grocery stores, gas stations, and more. A mortgage calculator is included on nearly every listing as well. According to our research, Realtor.com is one of the better Real Estate Search sites we've found that provides this amount of information. Filtering Options Realtor.com has an extensive array of filtering options when buying a home. This includes not just the basics of the price range, bedrooms and bathrooms, but includes a tall list of amenities. These amenities include a two-car garage, fireplace, pool, hardwood floors, water view, tennis courts, single or multi-story, and many others. This could be extremely useful for individuals looking for homes with specific perks. Frequently Updated Listings The website touts that roughly 80% of listings are updated every 15 minutes. Most listings will even display a posting history so customers know how long they've been posted. This is excellent to know so the customer can be aware that they're always getting up-to-date information.

The Bad

  • Can't directly contact seller
  • Can't directly sell your home
  • Lack of info for some properties
Can't Directly Contact Seller On Realtor.com, everything is done through the real estate agents. No information is provided on how to reach the home's owner, but Realtor.com makes it incredibly easy to contact the home's real estate agent. Can't Directly Sell Your Home If you haven't figured it out by now, everything on Realtor.com is done through-you guessed it-realtors. If you want to sell or rent out your property, the website requires you to go through a licensed realtor. Lack of Info for Some Properties On some but not all, Realtor.com doesn't feature photos of properties. This is definitely not ideal for a real estate website in that every home buyer wants to know what the property looks like before they have to show up to take a look. Some information is also not featured on properties such as sex offenders or crime rates in the area.

The Bottom Line

Realtor.com is a powerful Real Estate Search site that gives plentiful information on listings across the United States. Consumers would do well to give the website a look, especially if they're looking for specific amenities on each property. The only downside is that everything must be done through a professional realtor, including listing and buying/renting property. Overall, Realtor.com is a great experience.

I mainly use the app. I have found they are typically pretty accurate on their information. 1 issue I have had is the lack of photos for certain locations. Might not be their fault but it would be nice to get a better idea before contacting a realtor.

When I was searching for a new home, I searched for many properties on realtor.com, and was able to better understand properties and neighborhoods, and to have more information about which properties I wanted to see. It was helpful to have so much information at my fingertips, and I was even able to show some properties to my Real Estate Agent that she had missed

My experience with Realtor.com has been positive overall. The platform offers a user-friendly interface and a wide range of property listings. The detailed information and virtual tours provide a comprehensive view, aiding in my home search. However, occasional discrepancies in listing accuracy and property availability have been noted. Despite this, Realtor.com remains a valuable resource in my pursuit of finding the right home.

Realtor.com has been an absolute lifesaver in my homebuying journey. The website is user-friendly, and it provides an extensive range of up-to-date listings. The filters make it easy to narrow down your options, and the property details, photos, and virtual tours are incredibly helpful. The market trends and local insights also add great value. If you're in the market for a new home, Realtor.com is an essential tool in your arsenal. Highly recommended!

This website doesn't allow me to see nearly as much information on their site about homes as other MLS listing websites/apps. I have used this app to look at houses outside of my state and across the United States but I have preferred other sites to this one. It is still good and I haven't had any issues with it loading but I wish it had more information.

This is one of my biggest go-to sites for rentals and homes available for purchase. Specifically, I love the ease of navigating the website for my rental search, new home searches, and also information on how to sell some properties of my own. The site is also visually appealing in comparison to some of the other home-search websites with lots of resources for locating a realtor while staying current with the current market trends.

This is my go to sites when I am looking for houses I get up-to-date listings as I have saved my search they have a lot of information with regards to the history of the property the only thing is that it lags by a few hours so in a hot property market you still want to check your listings on MLS

Realtor.com is the best search engine for potential home seekers. They often list three “things” ppl should know but don’t always think to ask. 1. Area Noise 2. Floor Zone 3. Local Crime. It’s my go to first site and I found my last home there.

I agree with all that's said. I did convert one lead ( a big one) and it resulted in a Sale of their existing home and purchase of another. 2 sales! So it paid for itself. I think Realtor.com should let the public know they are going to be contacted by a Realtor if they inquire on a home. Not necessarily the LISTING agent. Doesn't matter though as any Realtor can show that listing. This is why REALTOR sells this info. I'm a willing customer!

Realtor.com helped me find the house we purchased last year. They have a wide coverage base with a lot of pictures, sometimes virtual tours and actual layouts of the house you are considering. They stay up to date on whether offers have been made or accepted on homes. It is an excellent resource when looking for a home.

Because of Realtor.com, we saw and bought a house only when we saw it on this website! We knew as soon as we saw it, we wanted to look seriously at this house. We saved ourselves the painful process of having to view houses we knew based on the information provided by Realtor.com, which house we as for us and which ones were not! It made our house buying experience beyond good, it made it spectacular. We made an offer which was accepted and we absolutely love our home!

We relied most heavily on Realtor.com in our home search. We were able to identify properties we wanted to see quickly (as soon as they came on the market) and communicate these to our agent. We also found our agent through Realtor.com. We liked their value estimation tool, estimated monthly cost tool, and that they had a floodplain overlay on their maps.

I like and use Realtor.com when I want to research cities that I might like to move to. They provide accurate and detailed information about and (usually) multiple photos of homes that fit my needs and price range. I feel I can rely on Realtor.com to provide me with relevant information I can use in lieu of actually visiting a city or property myself!

We have found Realtor.com to be the best site to use when looking for real estate. It tends to be kept updated so that you know what is off of the market. The price changes are accurate and the site runs well and is easy to navigate. The pictures and info are very well put together. It also provides the ability to create files for what you would like to keep track of and this has helped us immensely. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

Realtor.com was such a great resource to have during the process of our new home search. The listings we received seemed to fit our search criteria as we were able to customize our searches to exactly what we were looking for which in todays market u had to be "johnny on the spot" & if u see a home listing u even THINK you may look at you have to jump right in it....Between this app & Zillow we were able to view the houses we wanted & ended up finding an amazing home!

I like Realtor.com over other online house search engines for it's complete information and the way it's formatted. Dislikes are that it's an extra step to click a link to get the property details. Also, when one is looking for rentals, it is up to the listing agent to provide critical details as to availability and additional fees. None of the online providers are very good at making this information mandatory in their listings.

Being a top realtor for many years I have always used realtor.com. No longer a realtor but the information always given was very helpful in buying and selling. Gives you schools, taxes, and all listings in areas you desire to live in. Easy to navigate the site and clear beautiful pictures inside and out of homes. Easy to find realtors that deal in that location.

I use realtor.com all the time to search for real estate. I like their service, with one exception, I wish there was a way to filter by price per acre when searching for land. However, since I can't find anyone who really does have all the search criteria that I want, I can't really complain. I like that they send me an email with updates from all my different saved searches, it keeps me in the know as a buyer.

The good: The listings appear to be up to date. Notes are on the listing when the properties have offers that have been accepted. Sometimes you will find listings where they are seeking additional offers in case the deals fall through. Not something we would do, but is a nice feature. There are many filters to help narrow down your search. The bad: It is easy to search listings by city or county but not by larger geographical areas. I have found myself setting my filters and then searching by specific counties, one at a time. It would be nice to be able to search statewide for those who are more flexible on where they can live. I realize that is probably not the norm, but it seems it would be and easy fix.

This is typically my go-to for fact checking whether or not a home for sale has a pending offer. Zillow and Trulia are very easy to use with lots of information, but they often are not as up to date on pending sales. With rentals, it's the same. Realtor has more accurate information all around. Highly recommend.

theres not a whole lot i can say about this site that others havent said already thankfully the housing market is becoming reasonable again at least to a point. We hope to be a home owner this year. I use Realtor.com and Zillow to find our home. i get updates all the time with new homes or property that are being listed for sale. -so far we havent found what we want. but it is a great thing not to have to buy gas and run around to places we can see pretty much what we need on the websites and then only go and see the ones that interest us.
