Your best bet in finding the most up to date information about homes for sale is to work with a Realtor who knows the area you are interested in. The agent is paid by the seller, not the buyer. This allows you to have representation in the transaction, which will typically be in your best interest. If you are looking in the Woodlawn/Windsor Mill/Catonsville area and beyond, I have several folks I can recommend.

They all lag real time by some degree and nothing is as up-to-date as the actual MLS systems the Realtors own and use.
