Default How to find a home now the For Sale Signs have gone

It's really annoying, we know. Now you can't see what's for sale and therefore if you like an area and want to buy something in it, you can't see!

We came up with a solution - "What's for sale around me"

It's a mobile application that works on any phone with a web browser on it - iPhone, Blackberry, Android and more.

All you have to do is text EVUSA to 87778

It will let you download the application and off you go

Happy hunting!

And of course you can look by village on thevillages.com. And print out whatever you want to look at. Also Lyle Gant has an easily navigated site.

Whoops. I see now that you are an advertiser. Sorry.

Absolutely agree GG, TheVillages.com is a great resource and Lyle is a fantastic agent! The nice thing about TV is that I'm happy for people to go and check out the developers website because if they want new, there's nothing we can do about it

If they want pre-owned, us MLS agents (mostly haha) enjoy working together and cooperating is the name of the game!

without an obvious for sale sign i can no longer select "possible/potential purchases" to let my friends back north know about. i do not and will not have a smart phone so your app is of no use to me. or i guess i can just cause a traffic tie-up as my car creeps down the streets searching windows for signs. if you're behind me give a little honk and i'll gladly pull to the side of the road.

nj, have you been honked at yet? If you want to pull up potential/possibles for friends, we are always happy to help create a shortlist for you. You can actually now create a favorites list here and then share it with your friends. If there's anything we can do to help, please don't hesitate to contact us

Minor problem. Your suggestion won't show any real estate that is not listed with The Villages as they don't, and won't list properties listed with other realtors. It's part of a thing called monopoly.

Agree. The Villages doesn't use the MLS, it will be interesting to see if they use the MLS when all new construction has completed and they are only doing resales.
