Shopping for a new home can be both exciting and stressful. Finding the perfect NY homes for sale can be a challenge if you don't know where to look. There are a variety of print publications and online websites that list NY homes for sale and make it easy to find the home of your dreams. To ensure you are getting a good deal on your home, it is important to shop around and compare several different homes to make sure the owner is asking a fair price.

Step 1

Check a New York real estate guide to find NY homes for sale. These guides can usually be found in post offices, restaurant lobbies, gas stations and in real estate offices. The guides usually consist of several pages of homes for sale in various areas of a city or state. Several real estate agencies may come together to create the guide, and it will most likely be divided into sections according to the company. Some real estate guides are published on a weekly basis and some are published a few times a year. The real estate companies will provide their contact information in the guides. One you have found a home or homes you are interested, contact the real estate company and see if the home is still available. You can arrange a time and date to see the home and decide if you like it.

Step 2

Visit online real estate websites such as Trulia to find a variety of NY homes for sale. These types of sites list homes by state, city, price and size. You can type in your zip code to find the NY homes for sale near you. Choose your price range, square footage or age of the home. Sort your search results to see the homes in the order you want. Click on the pictures of the home you are interested in to read more information about it and see pictures if available. You can use the home description to determine the condition of the home, the floor plan and layout, the amount of rooms, types of utilities available and how much land the home includes. The real estate agent in charge of selling the home will have contact information listed somewhere on the page. Use the contact information to set up a time and date to view the home.

Step 3

Search online classified websites such as Craigslist to find NY homes for sale. Click on New York under the list of states and choose the city in New York where you want to purchase a home. You can type NY homes for sale into the search box to search all categories or click on the "real estate" tab to see all of the NY homes for sale under the real estate category. Click on the name of the listing you are interested in to read more about the NY homes for sale. You can see pictures and read the description to find out more about the home. Contact the listing owner to make arrangements to see the home.


Compare several NY homes for sale on the same street or in the same area to find the average price.

Always make an offer lower than what the owner is asking. This leaves room for negotiating.
