You can search a street name by putting in just a few of the first characters with an * at the end. For example Lock* will produce homes on Lockwood Lane. Will* yields results for homes on streets such as ‘Willow’, ‘William’, and ‘Will Merry’.
You can search by street name without knowing if it is an ‘Avenue’, ‘Street’, ‘Lane’, etc.
Sometimes, less is more. If you put in too many criteria in your Advanced Search, you will miss out on some listings that meet most but not all of your criteria.
SEARCHING IN GREENWICH – your backstage pass…
The Town of ‘Greenwich’ includes Cos Cob, Riverside and Old Greenwich.
The Greenwich Board of Realtors has its own MLS which this website gives you direct access to. Not all realtors who are members of this Board post their listings on the general CT MLS, nor do they all choose to post their listings on Zillow/Trulia.
When on the Home page (background photo of kitchen) if you want to search for Greenwich listings, select the “Search Greenwich” blue box to be directed to the Greenwich MLS. If you type Greenwich as a town in the Search Bar, it will pull listings from the general “Rest of CT” MLS which will not include all Greenwich properties.
In the Greenwich MLS agents are not required to input square footage. Therefore, if you put a square footage amount in your Advanced Search, you will miss out on some listings.
Unfortunately, in the Greenwich MLS, until a sale is ‘pending’ meaning that there are no contingencies to close, properties will show up as active. Although this is inefficient for everyone, I have no control over this. Please call / text me (914-450-5102) or e-mail me firstname.lastname@example.org to verify that it’s available.
SEARCHING ANYWHERE ELSE IN CT:
Status on Market: If you are searching in “Anywhere Else in CT” properties that either have accepted offers or have contracts signed will not show up as Active. If you see a property on Zillow/Trulia that does not show up on this site, it has probably has a deal in the works. If you see a property on Zillow/Trulia but not here, in the Status bar choose both ‘Active’ and ‘Show’ and fill in the street name. It will appear as ‘Show’ if it has an accepted offer. It will not appear at all if there is a signed contract of sale.
I want your feedback! Whether you love the site or wish some things were different, please let me know. My goal is for you to want to use this as your ‘go to’ site. Feel free to enter comments in the Contact section on the top bar.
