Zillow.com allows users to view listings for homes for sale by entering an exact address, the name of a neighborhood within a city and state or a ZIP code. Results appear on an interactive map, with each home appearing as a pin corresponding to its exact location on the map. Clicking in a pin displays the homes sale price, the features and the contact information for the agent. Trulia.com displays results in a list format, with multiple pictures of the exterior and interior for each home along with a list of its amenities. The agent posting the listing is also able to include a description of the home, which may include details about its history.

Craigslist.org works on a community level, meaning you must first choose your state and the nearest major city to view listings. Real estate sales appear in the Housing section of the site, under either the Real Estate by Broker or Real Estate by Owner sections. Each listing includes the asking price for the home along with a description and the date when the initial ad appeared on the site. It is also possible to find out about recent sales by visiting a local real estate office and speaking to an agent. Many local offices operate under a national chain, which means listing information may also appear online.
