I've never had the opp. to look for my own home.

When my dad was looking to move, he used the internet to scope them out and then went to check them out in person.

I've looked at homes over the Internet, and one of my best friends found the house of my dreams on the web. He bought it for himself!

Not homes to buy, but I do look for apartments online to rent. I actually have a second window open right now looking at some.

My parents use the internet when house hunting.

It's much easier. Realtors can't be trusted.

16 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Wednesday 3/1/06 - 8:43:52 PM EST (GMT-5)
Couple of times.
16 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Wednesday 3/1/06 - 10:24:16 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, I found the house I am in now on Realtor.com in 2002.
16 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Sunday 4/2/06 - 5:57:49 PM EST (GMT-5)
I've found apartments and townhouses that way. Why not?
16 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Sunday 4/23/06 - 2:26:04 PM EST (GMT-5)
I wouldn't. Well, maybe I would. But I'd still have to see it in person.

All the online house pictures are scary. i've actually seen myself on the roof of one taken of my house. Scary.
15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Saturday 10/28/06 - 10:09:13 PM EST (GMT-5)
Everytime I've gone house hunting I've used the net. Domain.com is very handy.
15 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 12/11/06 - 9:25:26 PM EST (GMT-5)
I've tried to
15 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 12/11/06 - 9:27:28 PM EST (GMT-5)
I would if I was looking for a house or apartment.
15 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 12/11/06 - 9:29:13 PM EST (GMT-5)
Sure, why not?
15 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 12/11/06 - 9:37:52 PM EST (GMT-5)
Some things I just prefer the old fashioned way. This is one off them.
15 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 12/11/06 - 11:00:39 PM EST (GMT-5)
no..id love to find a new home myself
15 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Tuesday 12/12/06 - 8:53:37 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, I haven't. There's the real estate agency for that. People shouldn't use the internet for everything. They're more dependant on it then.
15 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Thursday 12/14/06 - 9:42:59 AM EST (GMT-5)
Absolutly, I used to check the online realestate every day... I checked out a few houses from it, although the house i'm in came from my landlord
15 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Tuesday 2/27/07 - 9:50:48 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'd browse at some online, then see them in person if I were interested.
14 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 7/11/07 - 8:46:04 PM EST (GMT-5)
I probably would. I'm sure its a lot easier to do it online over other means. My sister looked for houses online and it worked great for her. My dad did this for some reason with houses in Ohio, which hinted at him wanting to move there... which would be awesome. But that doesn't have much to do with the question.
14 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Thursday 7/12/07 - 7:12:26 AM EST (GMT-5)
I tried finding apartments online but that was useless.
14 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Friday 12/7/07 - 3:44:56 PM EST (GMT-5)
I might look online, but I'd definately want to check it out in person as well. It's too important of a decision to take so lightly.
14 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 12/9/07 - 5:31:20 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah. In fact, I used the net to check out apartments in DEnver.
14 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 12/9/07 - 5:51:36 PM EST (GMT-5)
I sure have. Ended up finding it from an ad in the paper though!
14 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 12/9/07 - 8:40:39 PM EST (GMT-5)
What do you mean; my new home will be the internet. I plan on entering in 2011.
14 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 12/9/07 - 9:00:42 PM EST (GMT-5)
My parents are doing that right now.
