After a walk exceeds 30 minutes, no points are given.

    Photos – Photos of the city are pulled from Google

    Snapshots of home for sale – Every 5 minutes we pull the newest homes for sale within a city so you get the latest status updates on homes for sale in the cities you care about.

    Properties for Rent – Every 5 minutes we pull all the newest properties for rent within a city so you get the latest status updates on homes for rent in the cities you care about.

    Local Schools – View local schools on the map

  • LystHouse Launches New Tool for Home Buyers

    save your favorite homes for sale with lysthouse

    LystHouse is launching Property Favorites today, a new tool that makes it easier to save your favorite properties while you’re looking for a new home.

    When you’re looking for a new home, it can be difficult to keep track of all the houses for sale that you like. Now, all you need to do is click on the heart icon. When you want to go back and look at your favorite properties, it’s as easy as clicking on “My Favorites” from your dashboard.

    More than likely when you’re looking to buy a new home, you’re not doing it all by yourself. You’ve probably got friends and loved ones, your significant other, and your agent helping you out with the property search. LystHouse makes it easy to share your favorite properties for sale on Facebook, Messenger, Pinterest, Twitter, Email, and more. By sharing your favorite houses or properties, your friends, family, and agents can see all the details about the listing that you see.

    This feature was added as a service to help our home buying clients and their agents and keep them coming back to use LystHouse’s online property search which is more than just a Zillow or Trulia type of home search.

    At LystHouse, we want to make sure that you can see every home for sale on the market. When the price or status on that property changes, we want to make sure you know about it! That’s why we show you all of the listings of single-family homes, condos, townhomes, multi-family properties, and land for sale with a powerful property search that updates EVERY 5 MINUTES!

    Our search is integrated into the MLS and updates every 5 minutes so that you get the most updated status of all the latest properties listed. We were very deliberate when we decided to make our property search update so often. We wanted to delight our customers and make sure that our search was the most updated property search on the internet. It’s because we’re dedicated to providing you with quality data and making sure your real estate experience is as informed as possible. And we want to make sure that we GIVE. You don’t even need to create an account to use the LystHouse property search. Just go to www.LystHouse.com and start searching for the home you want right from the home page. In fact our home search is available to anybody, whether you’re using a LystHouse agent or not. But of course, we definitely want you to consider using  a LystHouse agent because we’re passionate about providing value and outstanding real estate service to all of our clients.

    Over the coming weeks and months we’ll be rolling out even more new features and enhancements to make your property buying and selling experience as smooth, easy, and informed as possible. Start your home search now!

  • The Best Tool to Find Homes for Sale Minutes After They Are Listed on the Market

    Search New Homes Now

    Looking for an easy way to find new homes for sale minutes after they are listed on the market? Look no further!

    LystHouse is changing the way people buy and sell real estate, by making it simpler, quicker, and more affordable for everyone involved. The archaic processes of real estate from the days of yore are coming to an end. Sure, back in the day, home shoppers used to have to talk to a real estate agent to find out about new homes on the market.

At LystHouse, the online property search actually syncs with the listing services every 5 minutes so you know you’re getting the most accurate data. That also means you’re getting a more accurate property search with LystHouse than by searching with Zillow or Trulia which is infamous for property search lagging by hours if not days.
