Actually, the agent did a superior job contrary to the opinion of Jon.
Why did the agent do a superior job?
The intent of ALL advertising is to get the reader to do something.
In your case, if you were a serious buyer, you would have contacted your REALTOR or the listing agent.
You did neither.
Instead you post your question on the internet.
The self selection process did EXACTLY what it was intended to do.
If the image of a bathroom or bedroom is the foundation for your criteria to buy, you are too far upstream to be taken seriously.
This agent, if intentional, spared the seller from entertaining those who are not yet ready to buy.... more
Most public real estate websites gather information of past sales over recent years and group them by .neighborhood. As you know every home is upgraded differently, location, style and lot sizes also differ. I would not put too much stock as they say into a generic estimate of your home that you see on a website. The best way to find out what your home is worth in today's market is to call in a local Realtor that will come view your home and give you more accurate information. Most Realtors will gladly do this for you without charging you a fee.... more
There were three sales in 2012, though none the same model as 4103. A 2 bedroom sold for $83,324, a 3 bedroom sold for $173,633 and a 1 bedroom for $80,497. They all sold right at their assessed values.... more
As far as I know Pamela the square footage information is not mandatory in New Jersey as in some other states like NY. Therefore some agents might not include this information in their MLS sheet. If you're concerned that the square footage doesn't seem correct, then I would recommend contacting the town tax assessor's office. They should be able to give you the correct information. I've found that some of the websites are not as accurate. I would recommend that a buyer do their due diligence when seriously considering purchasing a home.... more
I do not trust the data nor do my clients regarding Trulia or Zillow and other third party websites for housing market values and accurate information. Housing inventory values change frequently in every sector and adjustments in pricing should flow accordingly.
Many clients understand the information is obscure and they realize the data is incomplete thereby making it inaccurate when obtained through public records. In majority of cases, getting general public information is free and easy and streaming that data to enhance third party websites is easy as well. Lots of websites use the free and incomplete data to drive traffic to their own websites. Unfortunately, the unknowing individuals may then be asked to pay a fees for other services offered by the provider.
I suggest going to a professional agent who has access to accurate housing data in a specific sector. However, scrolling through the various websites is entertaining if not comical at times. Thanks for the post and good luck to you!... more
