Unlike other cities New York has no multiple listing service with which to search residential property for sale, but EveryNewYorkListing provides the tools you need to shop thoroughly, accurately and efficiently.
1. BUYFOLIO – The newest, simplest, and most comprehensive search engine.
Buyfolio gives you access to every property listed by member firms of the Real Estate Board of New York comprising every reputable broker in the city. With data provided by the same network brokers use, Buyfolio is more accurate than StreetEasy, more comprehensive than the New York Times, makes it a breeze to organize your search, and gives you exclusive access to the insight and experience of one of New York’s best brokers.
2. FSBO - For Sale By Owner property you won’t find in broker databases
Although “FSBO’s” are a rare breed in New York, they’re out there, and the NY Times real estate web site is the most likely place to find them. Just click the FSBO box before you begin your search. Buyer Beware: you should use an experienced broker to pursue them, starting with the first call.
3. STREETEASY – Listings, past sales, building data, reports, advertisements.
Streeteasy has become the “go to” site for many New York buyers. It has flaws, including occasional inaccuracies because of the depth of data it provides, so it works best when used in conjunction with an experienced broker.
4. POCKETLISTINGS – only available through brokers and their personal networks
Pocket Listings are unlisted, unadvertised properties that may be coming on the market soon, or are on the market but for various reasons can’t be advertised. The only source for them is a broker with a wide personal network at a major firm.
