http://www.realestateone.com/c ontent/propertysearchindex.asp

Please understand 2 things:
1) Just because its a site from a realty company does not mean it contains only homes from that company. These are listings from most of the realty compnies.
2) there are no homes on the site that are "For Sale By Owner".

That site also has a feature that allows you to search by map if you know what locations you are considering. Also a very nice option is the 'search for forelcosed homes'. There are definitely some foreclosure deals.

Best advice in this economy, you get what you pay for. If you get an agent to reduce their commission, you will get a lower level of service.

Hold your agent accountable. Make sure they have a marketing plan for your home, take lots of pictures and have a strong web presence.

I used realestateone to find houses I wanted to look at. But most of the houses that were worth it were the ones my agent sent to me in a list. I didnt have to pay my agent anything the seller paid it all but that may be because i bought a HUD home. My agent is getting 5% from Hud. She was helpful because you can get new listings quicker and find price reduced houses fast. Trulia leaves lots of houses off its list but its a good site to get previous sale price, as well as prices of recently sold homes in the area your looking. REETZ12 how longs it been on market? My step dads house in the same are been on the market for over a year.
