- What is Point2 Homes?
Point2 Homes is an online real estate marketplace that helps you find the right home or real estate investment. But we’re trying to go further than this, as we believe that finding a property and knowing the basics about it is in many cases not enough. Thus, our site gives you access to in-depth property information so that you can make the very best of decisions.
The Report or the Full Report sign next to the property you’re interested in means that you’re a click away from unlocking pertinent information such as: size, year built, changes made to the property, if the property is in a hazard-prone area, its sales history, ownership information, and much more. And this doesn’t stop here: you can check out stats on neighborhood demographics and contact an agent of your choice from our list of real estate professionals who serve the area.
- Do I have to pay to use Point2 Homes’s property search tools?
You can use most features of Point2 Homes’s property search tool free of charge.
However, in order for you to access certain services, such as “Unlock 4 Free Reports”, you may be required to become a registered user.
The only paid service on our site is the Property Data package. This is a great way of accessing in-depth information on one or more properties that interest you. Where available, the information includes size, year built, changes made to the property, if the property is in a hazard-prone area, its sales history, ownership information, and much more.
