Possibly you should work up an ad in the blog section. You can even post links and upload photos. Quite honestly, I think an ad is what you meant your post to be in the first place. However you, as well as countless others including myself, posted without reading the community guidelines. It is clearly against the guidelines to post an ad in the Q & A forum. However, Trulia has no problem with you doing it in the blog section. Again, good luck.
Yes, people buy houses as is but usually this type of properties are in poor shape and it takes a lot of money to fix them,it all depends how badly you want to sell your property.I would hire a professional apprizor to have the idea if what I know about the value of my property is the fact or not.
Value and condition are closely related. If your home is truly worth $82,000 in its current condition, then that is what you should expect to sell it for. However, if once the condition is considered it is only worth $60,000, then you should price is accordingly. Keep in mind that buyers ALWAYS overestimate the cost of repairs.
Yes, people do buy homes as is. I'm curious why it would take $30,000 to fix up a house that according to the city is worth $82,000?
50th and Center is a very popular area and you have to be careful to price it correctly, even as is. It could be worth more than the $60,000 you are trying to net.
I would suggest getting referrals from friends/relatives and get an agent you can trust to help you with the sale.
Please remember that as a seller even though it is an "as is" property, you must still disclose any known "adverse material facts" about the property. Otherwise, the buyer may seek damages up to a year after the sale.
Who determined the value of $82,000? Either a cash buyer or a lender's appraisal will set the amount. Also, who determined the repairs will cost $22,000? That,too, is an unknown number. And if an investor is purchasing this property they will want to achieve a margin of profit of a minimum of 8-10%. Has that been included in the negotiated price of $60,000? Speaking or repairs: does this include all repairs associated with the quality of land, the improvements on the land and the ability to give clear title?
I love real estate- so many issues to look at in order to determine value.
Good luck on the sale.

I'm not so sure that's accurate at all anymore. Whether you are represented by an agent or not, the blog attached to the link below may be of some interest to you. While it is directed to FSBOs, there are some ideas that you possibly could implement to augment your agent's marketing plan. Please, if represented, always keep your agent abreast of anything you do on your own. Good luck.
