To locate Wichita homes for sale, type in the search box of your Internet browser the following key words: “wichita homes for sale.” You will receive over 400,000 results from which to choose. Instead of analyzing whether to choose one site over the other, try the first one to see if the site offers what you need. With this in mind, click on the first result, trulia.com. Trulia.com is a real estate search engine that provides professional advice, lists homes for rent and homes for sale, and provides search options for other cities and states such as San Francisco, New York, Orlando, Los Angeles, Texas, California, and New Jersey, etc.

After clicking on the first result, trulia.com, a listing of for sale properties appears. On the left side of the website is a “Refine Search” section. To refine your search, change the minimum price to $100,000 and the maximum price to $350,000. Select “All Open Houses.” Select “Single-Family Home” under property type. Don’t change the options on the bedrooms, bathrooms, and square feet. You can either click on the button “Update” or just allow the website to produce the results each time you refine your search by clicking on a property type or other type of search item.

From the result, one listing begins at $133,000. It offers a three-bedroom, 2-bath, 1782 square-feet, single-family home. Highlight the listing. At the bottom of the listing, click on the “Compare” button. A click on this button requires you to pick two other locations. Click on any two that appear suitable. Or just pick the next two after the first listing. Once you have clicked a total of three listings, and you have clicked the button “Compare it!” a side by side comparison of three homes appears. The site provides a property summary of each home, a property description, and a map. You can either keep the three listings and continue to compare them, or remove one of the three, or remove all of the three and start another process. You may do this for the price range you originally chose and any other price range.

Once you have chosen the house you are interested in, from the side by side comparison section of the site, click the “Save” button. The site will prompt you to create an account in order to save the information. Enter your name, email address, password, location, and in the box enter “I am a home buyer.” Don’t forget to enter Wichita, KS in the city and state boxes! Press the “Create Account” button. You should receive the message “Saved” at the bottom of the house you want.

Now, click on the house. From here, the site provides pictures of the house, estimated monthly payment amount, the year it was built, nearby schools, the realtor company, and the date of the open house.
