Best Online Site for Real Estate in Seattle

While lounging around and talking Friday evening in our test manager’s office, one of our PMs alerted us to what’s quite possibly the best online site for real estate in Seattle: Redfin.

It uses a Flash animation with detailed satellite imagery like maps.google.com (though they don’t use Flash) but shows the houses currently for sale along with pictures and shows what houses sold for in the past, which Boris, our PM, pointed out was a little eerie but definitely helpful for home buyers.

It’s also nice because they charge you a mere $500 to list your home on Redfin but also in the MLS, or Multiple Listing Service – a national listing of homes for sale. $500 compared to the 3% or, more commonly, 6% of your home’s value is a huge difference when decent homes start at about $350,000 currently.
