Search For Yourself & Get Live Results...
This feature can only be found on a handful of websites.  Set up your own search and get live results.  Save your searches and logon later from any computer at any time.  Save your favorite listings for later viewing.  Live Search incorporates all homes listed by any company (GRAR)

The difference between Live Search and Advantage Search, is that with Advantage Search you're filling out a detailed webform that is e-mailed to me, then I type in your information into a search profile (the results are not "live").  Advantage search has a few additional search fields and has a different results interface.

If you are a hands-on type person, I would suggest using Live search.  The only requirement is your basic contact information for logon purposes.  The information is not shared with any outside organizations.

Give Yourself the Advantage…
The key to buying a home is to make sure your seeing the best listings as they hit the market.  The best homes for the best price, sell the quickest.
  By using our free Advantage Search tool, you can be sure you are always seeing the latest listings that match your search criteria.  

You no longer have to juggle through different real estate sites to try search for new homes.  Advantage Search incorporates all homes listed by any company (GRAR)Your Advantage Search will automatically update you when any new homes come on the market.  You'll be able to save or delete houses, view a map to the property, and be notified of any price reductions.

To do this, simply click "Advantage Search" above and fill out the quick search page.  There is no better way to search Grand Rapids homes and real estate.

Search MLS Records Yourself…
This option allows you to search for homes using the public portion of the MLS* (Multiple Listing Service).  The MLS encompasses all listings from every member real estate company in the area.  You can search by city, school system, MLS number, street, and other options.  You can also narrow down your search with price range, number of bedrooms, bathrooms, etc.

The disadvantage to searching the MLS yourself is that you will only be seeing what is available today.  You will not be automatically updated with new listings, price changes, etc.  If you are a serious buyer it is imperative that you are updated with new listings because the best ones sell fast.
