QUICK TIPS FOR SEARCHING PROPERTIES
Search engines can be a little quirky, so here are a few pointers for making your search a little easier:
City Codes Revealed!
You’ve probably scrolled the list of Cities on this page and thought to yourself, “Where is AD01-Rochester – W?” Well, that is the list of Wards in the City of Rochester. AD01 stands for the 1st Ward; AD13 represents the 13th Ward, and so on.
And then you ask, “How do I know which Ward is where?” Easy, Just click here and the map will open in a separate window so you can use it as a reference as you’re searching.
Less is More
Don’t feel as though you have to make a specific selection in every menu box. Sometimes it’s best to select “ALL” in order to broaden your search.
For instance – say you’re looking for a house on a specific street or road. Rather than select the county, the town, and the zip code, just select “ALL” for those items and then type in the street name (i.e. – Harvard). The report will bring up all the houses on Harvard Street. This way you don’t EXCLUDE a property you might be trying to find.
Or in this case, think “broad”. Say you’re looking for a 3 bedroom house in a particular town. Rather than restrict yourself to 3 bedrooms, broaden your search to 2 to 4 bedrooms (or even 5 bedrooms!). That way more choices will pop up on the report.
Also, if your price range is around $90,000, search for properties from $80,000 to $100,000. You then give yourself a little leeway for price negotiation.
