How can I search a specific neighborhood on realtor.com?

On Zillow, I can put in my county and then find the map so I can search specific neighborhoods. How can I do that with realtor.com? When I put in my zip code, it gives a lot of houses, but they are scattered and I have to look up each one to see where it is. Is there a map, or a way to narrow the field?

can't you change your view to a map view?

That's what I want to do. How do you do that? I don't see a tab for maps anywhere.

I don't generally use that site, but gave it a look. I searched using City, State and got a list of houses with thumbnail photos. The map view link is shown in my photo, where the arrow is pointing. Hope that helps.

Thank you Gyr Falcon. I can't believe I never noticed that before.

If you don't use realtor.com, which one do you like for current listings?

When I go to realtor.com the first page offers the ability to "Search by: address, city, zip, neighborhood, or #MLS."

The example they give is "Old Town, Chicago, IL."

Of course, then I test it with my own city and it does not work. Nevermind.

Jane, thanks for asking this, and thanks, Gyr Falcon - I never noticed that either!!!

I'm frequently the one in need of "Where did they put that link?" help, so it is nice to be be the one to be able to pass along a point-out occasionally. ;)

Jane, there isn't anything wrong with realtor.con; I just didn't have it in my favorites and have not become familiar with that site. I believe they have redesigned their site since I first checked them out some years ago. My brief visit gave me the impression it has improved and might be one I would like to use more often now.

I still have Listing Book information sent to me (although a recent site design there won't allow me to stay logged in, so that is annoying!) and I keep tabs of trends on Zillow because I have knowledge of the historical flow of the prices there. Even the Trulia site has been redesigned twice since I was a buyer. They each have their strengths and weaknesses, so it depends upon the information I seek where I go.
