Home Buyer Tools

  • MLS Listings: Our MLS listings include both existing homes and new construction in the DFW real estate market. Buyers can utilize our comprehensive search tools to locate active real estate listings in Texas and nationwide. Our listings include single-family homes, condominium and townhomes, high rises, land, and auction or foreclosure properties. If you register you can create saved searches, save a list of favorites for later review, and receive immediate email alerts whenever a new property fitting your search criteria comes on the market. You can also track the availability of a property you are interested in by simply checking the address or MLS number against our database.
  • Customized Search: Register today and you can request free customized searches. Customized searches are based on your specific search requirements and include all properties—those by individual sellers, as well as all bank-owned properties and auction listings.
  • Mortgage Calculator: If you find a property that interests you and fits your taste and budget, you can use our convenient Mortgage Calculator to determine what your mortgage payments would be at different rates and with various down payment amounts.
  • Get Prequalified. Pre-approval is required by most listing agents in today’s real estate market. Avoid the aggravation of missing the offer deadline on a property you like because you don’t have a preapproval to submit with your offer. DFW Living can help you find a local lender that offers low rates and fees, combined with top notch service to get the process started for your pre-qualification.
