Over at the makeuseof.com blog (otherwise known as the blog that ignores our software when writing about cool tools), writer Jerry Kid is an honest to god real estate broker, and has a really nice set of posts on real estate related websites.

In a series of posts with lots of nice screenshots, Jerry walks us through five different real estate tools: Realtor.com, Craigslist, Yahoo Real Estate, Trulia, and Zillow (with special emphasis on the first two sites).

If you are looking to buy a house this series of posts would be a nice place to start.

So say you want to buy a house. If you read the newspapers or watch TV or even pickup your news online, you can’t help but notice that the US real estate market is in the tank. There are many good deals to be had, if you could only find them, and then be sure that they were really a smart buy.

But where do you start? The local newspaper? The homes for sale magazines in the supermarket? Do you drive around (at $4.55USD a gallon?) and look for signs?

No! You are a reader of MakeUseOf.com and you have a technology slant on the things that you do, so you want to use online tools to find that house. This is your lucky day because today I kick off a five part series on what I consider to be the 5 most significant online home search websites currently available in the United States.

Looks like I'm moving to Oklahoma where the prices are "only" $125k.
