Did you pay your dues?

I've only ever had one issue with HAR.com's MLS and that was when they re-did it. I have yet to find a city in Texas, much less the US, that has a better set up.

Where else have you lived? My family has house hunted in Washington State, Colorado, and Oregon and they all had better real estate Web sites, in my opinion.

The lack of compatibility of the HAR system with MACs is my main beef with it.

I must have jinxed myself by saying that MLS was working fine for me because it started acting up on me earlier this evening after I spent a good hour sorting through listings! I was in the middle of composing my email message to a client to send with the listings I had sorted out....and CRASH! The last five hours have been ok, though.

Now that I've said that, let me go find some wood to knock on...

Are you talking about consumer side or agent side? I'm not sure about agent sides in any other city except Houston. As for consumer sides, I've looked at Boulder, CO, all metro areas of Florida, New Jersey, Hawaii (was just on there today), San Diego area, Dallas, San Antonio, Austin, Nashville, Memphis, New Orleans, and I think that's it. None seemed to ask for the same options as HAR (sq. ft min, age of home, etc) up front, nor were as user friendly, IMHO. My only beef with HAR is that they only load 10 or so homes at a time, but at least I don't have to squint to see if I really want to open a listing up to check out.

If your having trouble try Houston Real Estate :: Prudential Gary Greene Realtors :: Houston Texas Homes (http://www.garygreene.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=greene.search - broken link) I like that site much better easier to use & the search fuctions are easier to use

Consumer side. Whomever programmed HAR just doesn't think the same things are important as I do. I want different search fields (like specific school) and I wish there were a system that requires Realtors to input both the name of the master planned community (such as New Territory) and then the specific neighborhood (such as Blakely Bend).

How is the PGG site easier to use? It just pulls its info from HAR. Why not just go to the source?
