FOR THE BOOKMARK: Web sites worth the click

By Published on .

Moving anytime soon? Check out, a site run by the National Association of Realtors. Compare cost of living, school districts, etc. for thousands of locales by selecting “City Reports� on the left side of the site's homepage. Once you've figured out where you want to move, let the “Relocation Wizard� create a timeline for all the things you'll need to get done before the big day. On this comprehensive site, you'll also find articles on myriad topics related to buying a home, from finding the best mortgage to selecting the right mover. The “Lifestyle Optimizer� lets you search cities by demographic make-up, crime statistics, even the weather. So feel free to search for a town where there is no sales tax, the crime rate is low and the average home costs less than $100,000. Unfortunately, you'll get no matches. It's a Web site, not a fantasy world.
