My Favorite Real Estate & Housing Websites for Searching Property in Greater Cincinnati

Posted By on May 18, 2009

 

  • - Hamilton County Auditor http://www.hamiltoncountyauditor.org . This website allows you to search by owner, by street name, by parcel id. Number and by map. On this website you can find information on a piece of property or house like appraised values, recent sales prices, the jurisdiction, school district, and even recent comparable sales prices. It’s my first stop on the information highway. Many other county auditors have similar sights, but in greater Cincinnati this is by far my favorite.

 

  • - I will give you a warning on this website- it is not always accurate and gives you estimated home values only. However, if you want to get a ballpark idea in how much a house or a piece of land is worth, you can find out on this website http://www.zillow.com/. It will also give you information on the home itself, and information on recent sales in the area. The site also has a section for advice on buying, selling, home improvement & much more. I have found this information to be helpful on many occasions.

 

  • - If you have found that perfect piece of property & want to find a house plan to build, I highly recommend http://www.eplans.com/ and http://www.coolhouseplans.com/ . Both sites have a library of thousands of house plans to fit every budget. Of course nothing can beat customizing a house plan of your own, so don’t forget about your local architects! They can take ideas you find on these websites and make them into a custom home to call your own.

 

  • - If you’re looking for a newly constructed home in Cincinnati, there’s no better site than the Greater Cincinnati Homebuilders’ Association at http://www.cincybuilders.com/ On this site you can learn about green building, about new construction processes, and search the multiple listing service for exclusively new construction.
