Both Trulia and Zillow don't have the latest info when "for sale" home's status changed to "pending", thus wasting my time. Only Redfin is reliable.
I would suggest working with a local realtor to help you find a property.

Good luck!

In my experience the Houses with tile floor are preferred by home buyers because it is easy to keep it clean and keeps the property cool.

Best of Luck,

Ali Qureshi answered:
Do we still need our buying agent after escrow is closed, for anything related to the house we have bought via him?
Sorry to hear about your bad experience with your realtor. To precisely answer your question, you do not have to use him again since escrow is already closed.

why are townhome stats not tracked separately? how do I infer price ratio between a townhome and a SFH?
It cannot. You need to breakdown components that matters you most and identify a price that can get you what you are approved for and what your comfortable paying.
