What's the best way to search the MLS for the Northern Fairfield area?

I've used the usual sites, realtor.com, my and other realtor's website and others aggregrators such as trulia.com. I never seem get the complete information that my realtor has access to. Sometimes it is the address, sometimes it is the hoa charges, sometimes the directions or the listing agent remarks. I can never see how many days its been on the market, how many price changes it has been through. I end up sending the mls id, waiting for the broker to send the sheet, and then evaluating it all over again. Any suggestions welcome.

Thank you.

The GC CMLS just gave agents a new tool, called listing book tht allows customers to search the MLS and give them most of the information you ask for. Ask your agent if they had signed up for it yet. Good luck!

CTreal.com is the way to go but you may still not be able to get some of the details you are looknig for. This site is updated as new listings come on market so you are seeing what the agent is seeing in real time. You are, however, not seeing all of the information and the statistics that the agent sees. REALTORS pay for access to MLS (it isn't cheap!) and not all of the information is made available fto the general public.

CTreal.com, a service of the Connecticut Statewide MLS, doesn't show listings covered by other MLS's (Greater Fairfield County, New Canaan, Darien, or Greenwich) unless the listing agent subscribes to it in addition to his/her primary MLS.

As tstetinin mentioned, it isn't cheap. Some agents do opt to belong to more than one (as I do).

In any event, CTreal.com does provide approximately 70 percent of the listings in Connecticut.
