Karen & Thorn... Besides Zillow, you can also use ForSaleByOwner.com of which there is some sort of fee or for free on Craigslist.com. Be careful of Craigslist as it is full of scan artists...some of whom will assume your listing online and try to scam people out of money by advertising it for rent. As far as cost by a Realtor, it will cost you whatever the listing commission fee is. If interviewing Realtors, the one thing to ask is is how pro internet they are. For example, I pay extra to Feature my listings here on Trulia so that I can enhance them. Good Luck... more
As you've read, Trulia listings are through Realtors only which means you have listed your home through that person. Fees will depend upon company and agent. Always a good idea to shop several different agents. Good Luck... more
It means that the listing is under contract and that the Buyer is going through their diligence period (inspections, secure financing, title work, survey etc) During diligence the buyer may terminate for any or no reason at all. Once diligence is over then should the buyer fail to close the seller retains thier earnest money deposit. Once diligence is over the status will change to Pending meaning under contract due to close.... more

A property is worth as much as a buyer will pay, simple as that. The MLS is full or sellers hoping to beat the market, they are easy to recognize as their property is active month after month. Only +-6% of homes go under contract every month in my market, and we are considered a strong market nationally. The successful sellers are those who priced their property to sell, everyone else just sits on the bench. Many would like to sell high in today's market, undoubtedly with the intent of buying low. As a "buyers only agent" I have yet to meet a buyer that is looking for a fair deal, "fair deal" buyers lost their fortune 4 to 6 years ago and have to sit this market out. Even in the balloon market the majority of sellers priced their property too high, a lot of these seller's properties are the ones in foreclosure and short sale today. Sell in today's market and buy in today's market, you cannot beat the system by more than a % or two. Jeff Terry, 910-231-7814... more
James - I work for Union Mortgage Group in Wilmington, which is a division of Union First Market Bank based in the Richmond area. Our specialty is construction to permanent lending. Our average turn around time for closing the construction loan is 4 weeks. In some cases we will lend 100%.The best thing about it is your construction loan is that it isinterest-only and tax deductible. It's less expensive for you and your builder will love it because it eliminates the need for him to find financing.
We offer loans for conventional buyers, VA, FHA and USDA. Matty Fitzgerald is the Regional Manager and has 26 years in the business. I have yet to see him not close any qualified borrower. He has all the answers, to all the specifics, and personally manages the qualifying process. He's your man. You can call me and I will introduce you to Matty.

I have lived near Ogden (Murrayville area) and now live south of Monkey Junction....seems based on sales that the Monkey Junction areas have held their value more than other areas in Wilmington....school districts may also play a factor in that as well. I personally live in this area and felt it was a good decision due to this area is still growing even with the economy like it is! Let me know if I can help you!... more
I am not sure exactly what you need or who from. if you saw a listing here in Trulia you have this question on, you may want to go back to the listing, click on the profile for the listing agent and email them directly.... more
It does seem low. However, I have not been inside the house, so I can't say that it was too low. Until you see the house in persona and have it inspected, you just don't know what kind of condition it's in. It looked good in the pictures, but pictures can be deceiving. Hope that helps. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need help with anything else.... more
