My name is Sharolyn Sage; I am a licensed agent working as part of the team for the top producer at Coldwell Banker in Grass Valley, Charlie Brock. The real estate market is Grass Valley is adjusting to the steep increase in prices that we had in 2005 and 2006. There are 3 condos actively for sale that complex. The prices range from 28K to 259k. There has been one sale for 265k in January. The market has softened even more since then. So if you want to sell it pricing and staging is everything. Homes that are price well and are move in ready sell quickly. Others will just take a while.
As far as selling your home while you are in Mexico...it can be done by phone, email, fax and overnight mail. Our website is http://www.charliebrock.com Please feel free to email us at email@example.com. We would be happy to help you with this process.
I recommend logging on to realtor.com and looking up your home, there will be banner ads from local realtors on these pages....these agents are in touch with current marketing strategies, search thier sites and chose the agent with the best looking website as this is a good reflection of thier technology level and committment to real estate, ie full time.
My name is Susan Walker and I work at Century 21 Davis Realty, Inc. in Grass Valley. The market has been adjusting and the prices have come way down since 2005-2006. At this time there are a lot of buyers out there and we are seeing properties that are price at or a little below market value selling quickly.
To get your house listed and sold while you are in Mexico is no problem. We can take care of paperwork through email, fax, or overnight. If there is a Century 21 office close to you we can even get them to help us out by going through them to send and receive paperwork to make it more convenient.
Of course the first thing I would need to do is take a look at our condo so that I can give you a fair market evaluation.
I work alone as I like to give all my clients personalized service.
If you have any questions you can call me at 530-913-8387 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I am looking forward to hearing from you soon
Thank you Susan Walker
Buenos Dias Mi Amigo!
Market is definetely picking up, multiple offers are happening again in certain areas (If it's priced right) If you can keep the property as a rental and buy that would be ideal. FHA 3% down is a fabulous option, depending on when you purchased your condo in Alta Sierra.
Lesley Harris, Realtor
The market has seen a definite increase in activity in the last two months. We have more buyers and there are more properties selling. Last week I closed escrow on one of my listings in Alta Sierra. It had been on the market for more than a year.
Also, interest rates are great. They are now below 6%. The Feds dropped the rates one more time last week. And they made it clear that it would probably be the last drop for a while. this will encourage the buyers to move forward and not wait any longer to buy.
I have a condo now listed in Nevada City. You can see it with photos and virtual tour on my site, http://www.NevadaCityRealEstate.com. I have been working as a Realtor for Coldwell Banker Grass Roots Realty for 27 years. I would be happy to talk with you about your property and give you a current market evaluation.
At this moment I feel a few items should be cleared from the table. (This is my opinion, not Trulia's. nor anyone else's).
First, I don't know where you are located. I take it that your condo is located in Mexicio, is that correct? Or is it that you reside in Mexico and your home is in Kingsbury Circle, near Pittsburgh?
Second, is it a condo or a time share?
I am sure that some may give me flak for this post...please be understanding.
If I were in you shoes (where ever they may be), I would find a Realtor that knows your local market.
Third, let me ask you: Is it more important to list your property ASAP, as you state, or is it more importantly to sell it as soon as possible for top dollar?
There appear to be quite a few agents that few Trulia as an advertising platform. My advice to those agents is to refrain from self promotion, it's not attractive.
Are you looking for a professional to help you achieve a specific goal, or just list your property on Trulia? What if Trulia is only one of 20 websites that consumers visit? Would you prefer NOT to have it listed anyplace else?
How would you feel if you knew that in the majority of sales a Realtor brings the buyer that buys the home? So if you exclude the Realtor to "save the commission", the truth is your property may never sell?
Forgive me for being direct. If you are serious about selling for maximum profit, then seek out a professional. Would you let a next door neighbor extract a molar? Would you have your mother-in-law prepare your taxes to minimize your federal income tax liability?
IMHO, do the right thing. Find a professional, demand excellent service, and treat this as a serious matter.
Sharon, I hope that you found my words helpful. My apologies if not.
Trulia does not actually handle the listing process: we recommend that you go through a real estate professional. If your agent or broker has a listing relationship with Trulia, then your listing should show up on Trulia after your agent has made it available on his or her Web site.
