Home listings

The primary feature found on AOL Real Estate is the easy-to-use home listings search. You can customize this search to fit your needs. To access each individual search, click one of the links below:

  • New Homes – Allows you to search for new homes in a desired location. You can also customize this search with specific options, depending on your search needs for new homes.
  • Homes for Sale – Lets you search for existing homes that are listed for sale.  AOL Real Estate provides the ability to search for existing homes for sale from all over the United States.
  • Foreclosures – A foreclosure is the action taken by a creditor to regain a property if the lender defaults on mortgage payments. The creditor then offers the home up for sale, usually at a discounted rate.
  • Home Values – AOL Real Estate provides the ability to search for Home Values based on public record data on properties across the entire United States. In addition, AOL Real Estate gives you the unique ability to search Recently Sold properties (which have sold in the last six months).
